The home of Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe was reportedly raided by the FBI following two other search warrants executed on people connected to the company, over the allegedly stolen diary of Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley.
The New York home of Project Veritas founder and CEO James O’Keefe was raided on Saturday, The New York Times, which broke the original story, reported. The FBI confirmed to the outlet that they “performed law enforcement activity” at the building containing O’Keefe’s apartment in Mamaroneck, New York, but refused to discuss the details of the apparent raid.
The search, which reportedly lasted for several hours, came after two former or current Project Veritas employees’ homes were searched by law enforcement on Friday.
O’Keefe confirmed in a Friday video message that Project Veritas was under investigation, though he insists that none of its employees did anything wrong. O’Keefe said his organization had contacted the Justice Department as well as a lawyer for Biden about the diary. The journalist claimed that Project Veritas had been approached by tipsters claiming to have come into possession of the diary after it was allegedly abandoned by Ashley Biden in a hotel room.
“The FBI took materials of current, and former, Veritas journalists despite the fact that our legal team previously contacted the Department of Justice and voluntarily conveyed unassailable facts that demonstrate Project Veritas’ lack of involvement in criminal activity and/or criminal intent,” O’Keefe said.
The conservative journalist also accused the FBI of trying to silence him by asking him to refrain from disclosing “the existence of the subpoena to a third party.”
