The O’Keefe Project: Whistleblower edition

Featured image We haven’t heard anything lately about developments in the government’s persecution of Project Veritas in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary since I wrote about the case in March. All my posts tracking the story are accessible here. As I have said before, I infer that the government is out to get James O’Keefe and Project Veritas. It is a chilling story that we do not want to let recede »

The O’Keefe Project: Tucker Carlson edition

Featured image We haven’t heard anything about developments in the government’s persecution of Project Veritas in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary since I wrote about the case last month. All my posts tracking the story are accessible here. I find the story chilling and do not want to let it recede from sight. Harmeet Dhillon is one of the Project Veritas attorneys lending a hand in the case. She appeared last »

The O’Keefe Project: Not all is well

Featured image Project Veritas attorney Paul Calli has emailed me his reply to the government memorandum that I posted here early this morning in the case of Ashley Biden’s diary. I have embedded Calli’s reply below for readers who are interested in following the case along with me. I think the case warrants our ongoing attention. I find it chilling. On the surface, the case does not appear to be the stuff »

The O’Keefe Project: All is in order edition

Featured image We only learned this week that the FBI and Southern District prosecutors have had James O’Keefe and Project under surveillance in the case of Ashley Biden’s diary roughly since President Biden was sworn in. I wrote about the related court orders here (March 22) and here (March 23). This surveillance was in addition to the raids executed by the FBI this past November and subsequently leaked to the friends of »

The O’Keefe Project: Surveillance edition, Times style

Featured image They are out to get James O’Keefe and Project Veritas in the case of Ashley Biden’s diary. “They” are the Biden administration and the national security establishment, for whom Michael Schmidt and Adam Goldman are serving as the public relations arm. Yesterday we learned that the FBI first undertook surveillance on Project Veritas in November 2020, within two weeks of the election. The surveillance began in earnest with a series »

The O’Keefe Project: Surveillance edition

Featured image I infer from yesterday’s New York Times story that the FBI is working with prosecutors in in the Office of the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York to nail James O’Keefe and Project Veritas. Given the bylines of Michael Schmidt and Adam Goldman on the Times’s coverage, I see the Times as the public relations arm of the operation. The SDNY first obtained a warrant and »

The O’Keefe Project: The Times still on the case

Featured image The New York Times is still working the case of Ashley Biden’s diary with what I take is a little help from its friends in the national security establishment. Michael Schmidt and Adam Goldman report the story “Ashley Biden’s Diary Was Shown at Trump Fund-Raiser. Weeks Later, Project Veritas Called Her.” Subhead: “The right-wing group’s deceptive call to the president’s daughter a month before Election Day is among the new »

The O’Keefe Project: Raid video

Featured image In November and December I published a series of 14 posts under the heading of “The O’Keefe Project.” The series arises from the work of James O’Keefe/Project Veritas in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary and the 2020 election. O’Keefe et al. were raided last year under a federal search warrant procured by the FBI. Although O’Keefe was instructed to remain mum, the authorities promptly leaked news of the raids »

The O’Keefe Project: The Times at work

Featured image In November and December I published a series of 14 posts under the heading of “The O’Keefe Project.” The series arises from the work of James O’Keefe/Project Veritas in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary and the 2020 election. O’Keefe et al. were raided last year under a federal search warrant procured by the FBI. Although O’Keefe was instructed to remain mum, the authorities promptly leaked news of the raids »

The O’Keefe Project: The Times restrained (3)

Featured image The New York Times somehow obtained privileged legal memoranda rendering advice to Project Veritas on how to stay within the lines in the course of its journalistic work. The Times published the misappropriated memoranda and reported on them in a long story by Adam Goldman and Mark Mazzetti — two perpetrators of the Russia hoax with deep connections to the FBI/national security establishment. Their November 11 story is posted online »

The O’Keefe Project: The Times restrained (2)

Featured image The New York Times devoted an overlong editorial to a condemnation of the court order requiring it to disgorge privileged attorney-client memos advising Project Veritas on how to conduct its work lawfully. The Times published the memos online in connection with a story it ran on the memos. I posted the court opinion and order here. The Times editorial puts me in mind of the adage that no man is »

The O’Keefe Project: The Times restrained

Featured image James O’Keefe and Project Veritas are suing the New York Times for defamation. O’Keefe and former Project Veritas associates were recently raided by the FBI in connection with the loss of Ashley Biden’s diary. FBI/national security reporters from the team that brought us the Russia hoax seem to have a pipeline into the investigation. They have reported on it with pornographic glee. I have covered it in a series of »

The O’Keefe Project: Extortion edition

Featured image Did Project Veritas use its possession of the diary of Ashley Biden as “leverage” with which to “extort” President Biden? The fifth New York Times story on Project Veritas and the Ashley Biden diary includes this passage under a suggestive heading: Using the Diary as Leverage Less than a month before Election Day, in an Oct. 12, 2020, email that Project Veritas included in a court filing, [PV founder] Mr. »

The O’Keefe Project: Project Veritas’s statement

Featured image I followed up this morning on my post looking at the current New York Times story on the investigation of Project Veritas with PV attorney Paul Calli. I asked Mr. Calli for the questions submitted by the New York Times to PV and the response given to the Times, both of which were omitted from the story. Mr. Calli has provided the following as O’Keefe’s unquoted response to the questions »

The O’Keefe Project: The Times strikes again

Featured image We have followed the story of the FBI raid on James O’Keefe and associates of Project Veritas in a series of posts under the heading “The O’Keefe Project.” The most recent of these posts is dated November 24. The FBI conducted these raids in the style to which we became accustomed in the case of Roger Stone and appears to have followed them up with leaks to its friends at »

The O’Keefe Project: Mysterious disappearance

Featured image Reporting on the FBI raids on James O’Keefe and former associates in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary, the Times seems to have a pipeline to the FBI and national security establishment. Thus the November 11 story by Adam Goldman and Mark Mazzetti quoting otherwise privileged legal memos prepared for Project Veritas in connection with its work. Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple suggests that a disgruntled Project Veritas employee »

The O’Keefe Project: What’s going on?

Featured image I am in search of a deeper understanding of the facts underlying the FBI raids on James O’Keefe’s and former Project Veritas associates in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary. Pending before the court that issued the search warrants authorizing the raids is the motion of Project Veritas for the appointment of a Special Master to review the contents of O’Keefe’s cell phones and protect against the disclosure of otherwise »
