Joe Biden and his Attorney General aren’t playing games.
First it was parents.
Now this one raid signaled Merrick Garland’s weaponization of the FBI has entered a disturbing new phase.
The Left continues to censor, lie to and bully those who don’t kowtow to the current administration.
It’s getting so bad that Biden and his team are politicizing the DOJ.
They crossed a major line when Attorney General Merrick Garland turned the DOJ on parents simply for protesting CRT being taught in schools.
Now the Biden administration’s weaponization of the DOJ has entered a disturbing new phase.
As one of the few real investigative journalism outfits around today, James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have been a major thorn in the side of the Biden administration and the elite ruling class.
But in a stunning move, Biden and AG Garland just sent FBI agents to raid the homes of Project Veritas employees, including O’Keefe himself.
The purported reason behind the raids is a diary alleged to belong to Joe Biden’s daughter that Project Veritas was approached with a copy of.
The raid came despite Project Veritas attempts to follow proper protocol, both legally and ethically, to not only not publish the diary’s contents when they couldn’t verify the source but also Project Veritas’ attempt to return the diary to Ashley Biden’s attorney, who refused to accept it.
Fox News reported:
“The Project Veritas founder then explained that “tipsters” approached his group late last year alleging to have Ashley Biden’s diary containing “explosive allegations” about her father, then the Democratic nominee, and that the diary was allegedly abandoned in a room that she had stayed at and that they stayed after.”
“Project Veritas gave the diary to law enforcement to ensure it could be returned to its rightful owner. We never published it,” O’Keefe said. “Now, Ms. Biden’s father’s Department of Justice, specifically the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, appears to be investigating the situation, claiming the diary was stolen. We don’t know if it was but it begs the question: In what world is the alleged theft of a diary investigated by the President’s FBI and his Department of Justice? A diary?”
O’Keefe told Fox News’ Sean Hannitty:
“I woke up to a pre-dawn raid,” O’Keefe told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday. “Banging on my door, I went to my door to answer the door and there were ten FBI agents with a battering ram, white blinding lights, they turned me around, handcuffed me and threw me against the hallway. I was partially clothed in front of my neighbors. They confiscated my phone. They raided my apartment. On my phone were many of my reporters’ notes. A lot of my sources unrelated to this story and a lot of confidential donor information to our news organization.”
The Biden family comes with a long history of problems, from Biden’s son Hunter’s constant run-ins with law enforcement and possible connections to foreign criminals to the President himself being called out for repeated lies and plagiarizing.
There is no shortage of “House of Cards” style skeletons in the Biden family closet.
And Ashley Biden’s diary is alleged to contain incredibly damning information.
Given the lengths Joe Biden and the Democrats’ administration are willing to go to silence political opponents with knowledge of the contents of his daughter’s diary, one has to wonder what skeletons are in there.
Jonathan Turley is a law professor at George Washington University. In an interview on Fox News, Turley called into question the actions taken by the FBI, saying it raises “legitimate concern” over the first family’s ties to the bureau.
“Why would the FBI be coming in on this? Project Veritas said it didn’t run the information and notified local enforcement. So, there is a legitimate concern when the FBI becomes involved in this type of story, as to whether it is going outside of those navigational beacons that we use to judge whether they are acting independently,” Turley stated.
Project Veritas is known for reporting on the hypocritical and despicable behavior of many on the Left, uncovering dirt on Planned Parenthood, CNN, The Washington Post, a former general, and many others.
James O’Keefe and his group are loathed by the Left.
Not just because Project Veritas digs up dirt on leftists but because O’Keefe is adamant about following ethical journalism practices and abiding by the law – something most journalists stopped doing decades ago.
In this particular situation there is no doubt O’Keefe followed the letter of the law when he allegedly ended up in possession of Ashley’s diary.
Yet, for some reason, the FBI raided his home and the homes of two of his closest associates.
Meanwhile, the DOJ has yet to take any actual legal action against Hunter Biden.
Hunter has had numerous illegal business dealings with foreign countries, is known for his drug addictions, and implicated President Biden in emails that outline his criminal activities.
But none of that matters, apparently.
