Joe Biden and his Attorney General were both sold to the American people as mild-mannered moderates by the corporate-controlled press.
These stone-cold radicals have proven just the opposite.
But now, Merrick Garland is sweating bullets after shocking leaked documents prove what the Biden administration is really up to.
Project Veritas is a living example of what happens when people challenge establishment authority.
The investigative journalist outfit has been directly targeted by Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Last year, in a stunning violation of freedom of the press, the FBI raided the homes of Project Veritas undercover journalists, including founder James O’Keefe.
The feds seized dozens of electronic devices allegedly in pursuit of Ashley Biden’s diary.
Veritas was given a diary that purportedly belonged to the President’s daughter, but O’Keefe could not substantiate the claim so he never ran the story and ultimately turned it over to the authorities.
The diary was the pretext for a Stasi-style raid of journalists’ homes.
Worse yet, the Department of Justice and attorneys for the Southern District of New York were secretly spying on Project Veritas and going through their devices against the ruling of a district court judge.
Veritas wrote that “Microsoft Corporation legal documents released by Project Veritas reveal that President Biden’s Department of Justice filed a series of secret warrants, orders, and a subpoena to surreptitiously collect privileged, and constitutionally protected, communications and contacts of eight Project Veritas journalists from Microsoft Corporation. The Department of Justice then muzzled Microsoft from disclosing these orders via a series of secrecy orders signed by magistrates. The documents further reveal the DOJ then went behind U.S. District Court Judge Analisa Torres’ back to obtain extensions on the gag-orders on Microsoft from magistrate judges after Judge Torres ruled Project Veritas was entitled to ‘journalistic privileges.’”
The targeting of Veritas is so chilling, even liberals who despise the organization are calling foul.
The ACLU, who has denounced Veritas since moving to the hard Left, said in a statement:
“[W]e’re concerned that the precedent set by this case could have serious consequences for press freedom. We’re deeply troubled by reports that the Department of Justice obtained secret electronic surveillance orders requiring sweeping disclosure of “all content” of communications associated with Project Veritas email accounts, including attorney-client communications.”
The harassment of Project Veritas should be a warning to all journalists, but not enough of them are speaking out about it.
Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland have shown a disturbing propensity for siccing the DOJ on political opponents.
First, it was parents at school board meetings, and now it’s independent journalists.
