It looks like Project Veritas hit too close to the Dem’s plan on this one. Project Veritas recently uncovered that there is voter fraud in New Jersey. But after they ran the story suddenly the Biden Admin claimed James O’Keefe, Project Veritas’s founder stole Ashley Biden’s diary and they were raided twice by the FBI. Coincidence?
“I woke to the news that apartments and homes of Project Veritas journalists, or former journalists, had been raided by FBI agents,” O’Keefe began. “It appears the Southern District of New York now has journalists in their sights for the supposed crime of doing their jobs lawfully and honestly, or at least this journalist.”
To make things more suspicious, O’Keefe says that Times contacted that reporter only an hour after the raid.
“We do not know how the New York Times was aware of the execution of a search warrant at our reporter’s home or the subject matter of the search warrant as a grand jury investigation is secret,” O’Keefe said. “The FBI took materials of current, former Project Veritas journalists despite the fact that our legal team previously contacted the Department of Justice and voluntarily conveyed unassailable facts that demonstrate Project Veritas’ lack of involvement in criminal activity, and or criminal intent.”
“Our efforts were the stuff of responsible ethical journalism, and we are in no doubt that Project Veritas acted properly at each and every step,” O’Keefe asserted.
O’Keefe says that the supposed diary was presented to his team by a ‘tipster’ late last year. The group, however, has integrity and decided not to publish the contents of the diary because they could not confirm it actually belonged to Ashley Biden.
O’Keefe explained that the ‘tipsters’ told PV that it was left in a hotel room where they later stayed. He also said that the tipster told the group that they also tried to sell it to news outlets.
The “tipsters,” who O’Keefe said he had never met prior, were apparently negotiating with media outlets to sell Biden’s diary and that ultimately, Project Veritas did not publish the book’s contents because his group was not able to independently verify its authenticity.
“Project Veritas gave the diary to law enforcement to ensure it could be returned to its rightful owner. We never published it,” O’Keefe said. “Now, Ms. Biden’s father’s Department of Justice, specifically the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, appears to be investigating the situation, claiming the diary was stolen. We don’t know if it was but it begs the question: In what world is the alleged theft of a diary investigated by the President’s FBI and his Department of Justice? A diary?”
O’Keefe went on to claim the investigation “smacks of politics” but that Project Veritas will “not back down.”

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett appeared on “Hannity” Friday and stressed there’s a “huge difference” between what Ashley Biden’s attorney has alleged that her diary was stolen versus what O’Keefe alleged about it being left behind in a room, saying “one’s a crime and the other one isn’t.”
“Project Veritas did the right thing,” Jarrett told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “They didn’t publish this because they couldn’t verify the authenticity of the documents, but the other conservative website did publish it but they claimed they did verify it. What is so bewildering about this is why in the world would the feds even involved in it.”
Jarrett insisted that even if the diary was the subject of a theft, it would be a “state crime” rather than a federal crime and that the investigation, which allegedly began under Attorney General William Barr, has become an “enormous conflict of interest” with President Biden now in office.
“A journalist cannot be criminally prosecuted for publishing stolen material unless the journalist himself or herself is involved in the theft. There’s no indication of that,” Jarrett said. “And the same is true of leaked classified information. Journalists have never been prosecuted for that, although the leakers have when they’re identified. So we don’t know a whole lot about this story, but it’s deeply troubling. They would barge into the homes of two journalists armed with a search warrant signed off by a federal judge and the Department of Justice, presided over by Joe Biden, this smacks of a political investigation and potential prosecution.”
Yea I’m sure it’s about a diary, not the fact that Project Veritas recently showed how fraudulent our elections have been…
