Remember Ashley Biden’s diary?
Well, it is back in the news, and it could be the smoking gun that takes down Project Veritas.
On Thursday, reports broke that the couple that initially “found” the diary pleaded guilty to stealing it and selling it to Project Veritas.
Those guilty pleas are expected to be ammunition to take out conservative investigative journalist James O’Keefe and Project Veritas.
Robert Kurlander, 58, and Aimee Harris, 40, have pleaded guilty to stealing the diary that raised questions about possible Biden family abuse at the time.
The initial reporting on the diary made it sound like it had been found, not stolen.
Kurlander and Harris say Project Veritas bought the diary from them for $40,000.
The question is if PV knew it was stolen and encouraging the couple to steal more things that belonged to Ashley Biden.
The diary had been left in the home of one of Ashley’s friends, where the couple found it when they were staying there.
O’Keefe and Project Veritas never did publish the diary, but they willingly turned it over to authorities, but that is not the spin the FBI is hoping to create.
O’Keefe has covered this topic before, vehemently stating that PV did nothing wrong, obtained the diary legally, and turned it over once there was a question about how it was obtained.
The DOJ has had it out for O’Keefe for some time, hoping to take him down because of all the liberal corruption he has exposed.
Our guess is that Kurlander and Harris were given a sweetheart deal to implicate O’Keefe and PV, but prosecutors will still have to prove that something nefarious took place, which will not be easy.
O’Keefe is known for heavily documenting everything, which is why he is undefeated in lawsuits thus far.
The First Amendment protects the media in cases like this as long as the outlet was not complicit in the theft.
