Judge orders FBI to stop spying on Project Veritas leader amid leaks to NYT

A federal judge ordered the FBI to stop the “extraction and review” of information on Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe’s phone.

Last week, the bureau raided O’Keefe’s home and other Project Veritas members as part of an investigation into the alleged theft of Ashley Biden’s diary. O’Keefe has denied that it was stolen.

“Late last year, we were approached by tipsters claiming they had a copy of Ashley Biden’s diary,” O’Keefe said. “The tipsters indicated that they were negotiating with a different media outlet for the payment of monies for the diary.”

The organization ultimately decided not to publish the diary’s contents, which allegedly belonged to President Joe Biden’s daughter, because they couldn’t authenticate it.

“At the end of the day, we made the ethical decision that because, in part, we could not determine if the diary was real, if the diary in fact belonged to Ashley Biden, or if the contents of the diary occurred, we could not publish the diary and any part thereof.”

On Friday, Judge Analisa Torres issued an order to the FBI to refrain from extracting and reviewing information from O’Keefe’s phone.

However, the bureau had already leaked its contents to the New York Times.

“Something tells me that the Federal judge who ordered the FBI to stop removing files from Project Veritas devices is going to have some questions as to how attorney-client privileged communications were removed from those devices and sent to the NYT,” media personality Mike Cernovich wrote on Twitter.

FBI searches Project Veritas founder’s home over Ashley Biden’s diary

The Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the New York home of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe over the weekend.

“I awoke to the news that apartments and homes of Project Veritas journalists, or former journalists, had been raided by FBI agents. 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,” O’Keefe wrote on the Project Veritas website.

An FBI spokesperson told the New York Times it had “performed law enforcement activity” in O’Keefe’s building on Saturday but did not elaborate further.

The previous day, O’Keefe said that the Justice Department was investigating Project Veritas over the allegedly stolen diary of Ashley Biden, President Joe Biden’s 40-year-old daughter.

Project Veritas, a right-wing activist group, said it at one point had the diary after receiving it from “tipsters” who claimed they found it in a room Ashley had used. O’Keefe said the group attempted to return it to her, but her lawyer “refused to authenticate it,” so they handed it over to law enforcement.

O’Keefe said the group refrained from publishing the diary’s contents because they were unable to authenticate it.

“In what world is the alleged theft of a diary investigated by the President’s FBI and his Department of Justice? A diary! This federal investigation smacks of politics,” O’Keefe wrote.

In Oct. 2020, the Times reported that Ashley Biden informed the Justice Department that her house was burglarized and several personal items were stolen. The DOJ opened an inquiry into the incident.

While Project Veritas didn’t publish the diary, some of its handwritten pages were posted on a right-wing website shortly before last year’s presidential election. According to the Times, the posting was essentially ignored by the mainstream media.

The FBI’s search of O’Keefe’s apartment was preceded by the raid of two of his associates on Thursday.

O’Keefe said that the subpoena and raids were attempts to “silence” him and his peers.

“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,” he said in a video statement posted Friday.
