Joe Biden’s presidency is on the verge of a complete collapse.
He’s desperate to shut down any critics of his massive failures.
Now, his lawless regime is in hot water for this move against conservative journalists.
James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have broken some of the biggest stories in conservative journalism from their groundbreaking investigative reporting.
When they came into possession of Ashley Biden’s diary, it put them in the crosshairs of the Biden regime.
A source contacted Project Veritas saying they found Ashely’s diary after she left it behind in a house she moved out of in Florida.
Veritas worked to authenticate the diary but ultimately opted against publishing its contents.
But this didn’t stop the Biden regime from siccing the Justice Department on them for the act of journalism.
The Biden regime sent in the FBI to raid the home of O’Keefe and other Project Veritas journalists while they confiscated their electronic devices.
That was followed up with a terrifying surveillance scheme against these conservative journalists.
The DOJ snatched hundreds of thousands of files and emails from Project Veritas with many of them unrelated to the Ashley Biden diary over the course of a year.
They only discovered this spying after Microsoft of all companies notified them after their lawyers threatened to file a lawsuit against the government’s efforts to renew non-disclosure orders for the surveillance.
So far over the line was this Biden surveillance scheme that a woke Big Tech company threatened to stand up for conservative journalists.
Eventually, a federal court ruled that a special supervisor had to be appointed to oversee the Biden regime’s access to these files.
The DOJ claims that Project Veritas was “actively involved” in the theft of Ashely Biden’s diary.
This was an unconstitutional attack on the First Amendment rights of Project Veritas as journalists.
Under the First Amendment, journalists have a right to receive materials from sources even if they were stolen.
But Project Veritas and the source claim there was no theft involved.
“The government keeps using the word stolen,” said Project Veritas attorney Paul Calli.
“Don’t buy the lie. Someone has to make the government explain why they used the most invasive means possible on an American journalist and citizen,” he added.
“What the government did here violated the Constitution, the First Amendment, the Justice Department’s internal procedures, and the very pronouncements of freedom of the press that Attorney General Merrick Garland has made for the past year,” he continued.
This attack on press freedom was so disturbing that even the liberal ACLU condemned it.
“We’re troubled by the government’s sweeping searches and seizures in this case,” said ACLU attorney Brian Hauss.
“The freedom of the press protects anyone engaged in the dissemination of information to the general public,” he added.
It appears the Biden regime will go to any lengths to shut down conservative journalists so they can dodge accountability.
