Yesterday, reports appeared in the The New York Times and elsewhere that the FBI searched the home of James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, on Saturday as part of its investigation into the possible theft of a diary belonging to Ashley Biden, President Biden’s daughter.
Mr. O’Keefe released a statement acknowledging that the raid had indeed occurred and that the FBI had taken materials of current and former Project Veritas journalists despite the fact that Project Veritas’s legal team previously contacted the Department of Justice and had voluntarily conveyed unassailable facts that demonstrated Project Veritas’ lack of involvement in criminal activity and/or criminal intent.
O’Keefe also states that the Department of Justice had requested Project Veritas to not disclose anything related to the raid or the associated subpoenas. However, what astounded them is that within an hour of one of the raids, The New York Times contacted the Project Veritas for comments. O’Keefe was understandably perplexed as to how The New York Times became aware of the existence and execution of a search warrant...........To Read More....
My Take - The FBI asked O'Keefe to keep all this quiet as it would impede the investigation. Really? Then how did the NYT knew about it? Like when they arrested Stone in the early morning and CNN just happened to be there. The indictment only came down the night before, yet some how CNN knew he was going to be arrested the following morning to film the perp walk.
In days gone by if the FBI asked someone for their cooperation most were more than willing to give it, but things have changed at the FBI, at least in Washington, I'm not so sure about the agents outside of Washington where the real work of combating crime is being done. But we know Washington is a viper's pit of corruption, including the FBI.
We now know even someone as patriotic and prominent as General Flynn will be used and abused by the FBI if it fits their their political agenda.....with Obama........, Here and Here. Why would we believe anyone is safe from them?
