Earlier this week, the New York Times published what amounts to be a hit piece of James O’Keefe and Project Veritas.
The piece made no logical sense whatsoever, attacking him for using attorneys to ensure all reporting was above water and did not cross any legal boundaries, something every outlet should be doing already.
The question is whether the FBI leaked case-sensitive material to the outlet, which is obviously illegal.
Did FBI Break the Rules?
The report in the Times comes conveniently after an FBI raid of James O’Keefe’s home, his offices, and several employees.
The report contained memos from O’Keefe’s attorneys regarding how the organization could conduct its sting operations without breaking the law.
Keep in mind, the organization was in its early days based on the dating of the memos, so it could not afford to be sued at the time.
And to be clear, PV was doing nothing wrong here.
Actually, he should be applauded for ensuring his team was being ethical and following the law regarding undercover reporting.
The Times report does not specifically say where the memos came from, but the fact the FBI raids only recently happened and this report is then published looks very suspicious.
I am not alone in thinking the FBI purposely leaked this information…
The FBI is leaking attorney-client privileged files to a party adverse to Project Veritas in a civil lawsuit.
This is not a grey area.
It’s black letter criminal felonies committed by the FBI and the New York Times. https://t.co/Kgx98JWz5d

The Executive Director of @FreedomofPress on why the DOJ targeting of Project Veritas and James O'Keefe is so "worrying from a press freedom perspective," at least unless there is evidence of actual criminality.

Yet again, it appears as though the DOJ has weaponized the FBI against a target deemed an enemy to Joe Biden and the Democrat Party.
If this assertation is proven to be true, Merrick Garland should be impeached immediately, and Christopher Wray must be terminated and prosecuted for his crimes.
