FBI Raids Project Veritas Writers . . . Over A Missing Biden Diary?

https://jonathanturley.org/2021/11/07/fbi-raids-project-veritas-over-a-missing-biden-diary/

Quote
There is a curious story out this weekend on reported FBI raids of writers or associates of Project Veritas, the conservative investigative journalism outfit. Project Veritas has been described variously as “Gonzo” or “guerilla” journalism and some insist it is more of a political than a press organization. However, it fits the definition of journalism, in my view, and that makes the raids troubling. All the more troubling is the cause: the missing diary of President Biden’s daughter Ashley. [Update: The FBI reportedly also raided O’Keefe’s home]


The New York Times reported that the FBI searched two locations in New York in search of the “stolen” diary that went missing days before the 2020 presidential election. Project founder James O’Keefe questioned how the Times received the story within an hour of the first raid.
...
Project Veritas decided not to run the story because it could not verify that the diary belonged to Biden. (The FBI may have just offered that confirmation). Instead, it alerted the police, according to O’Keefe: “Project Veritas gave the diary to law enforcement to ensure it could be returned to its rightful owner. We never published it.”

So why the raids?  Since when does the FBI conducted raids over missing diaries?
...
Journalist organizations are routinely given material removed from businesses, agencies, or private owners without permission by confidential sources. If this is a federal crime subject to FBI raids, what happened to the new media policies of the Biden Administration after the Tucker Carlson controversy?

There are a host of unanswered questions. Here are five to start with:

1. What was the context for the diary’s loss? (Did Ashley Biden leave the diary in a room or was it stolen?)
2. What is the alleged federal crime (and what is the precedent for a major federal investigation over such an alleged theft)?

No federal crime. Just the Federal Kommittee for State Security settling into it's adopted role as strong arm for the regime...

Love to know what "Federal Issue" justifies the FIBBERS.

J Edgar was able to grab "bank robbery" due to banks being federally insured.

It was still a crock, but people bought into it.

Wrote this early this morning before CC belched and farted:

The Epoch Times reported that O'Keefe was instructed under indictment to keep his mouth shut about the diary. He does so by posting a video of his reading out of Orwell's 1984. Then there's this video at the link as well.

If that's true, why? If PV turned over the diary to LE, why the indictment?

There's a whole lotta stink in this story and two gets your twenty that 99% of the stink comes out of the feebs. After all, their track record of late isn't any kind of stellar.

I thought PV tried to give the diary back to the tipsters, but no-one would take it back... trying to make it look like PV was desperately trying to pawn it off. 

While SDNY is counting-on O'Keefe disobeying the gag-order. 

The media's gotten burned by O'keefe so many times, Wray's like the Tidy-Bowl man, alone in a rowboat.

how did the diary end up on O'Keefe's possession in the first place?
Biden is an illegitimate President.  Change my mind.

From https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/11/the-fbi-and-the-stolen-diary.php :

Quote
The diary dates to 2019, when Ashley was in a drug rehab facility. It left her possession under circumstances that are not clear. Someone offered it to Project Veritas, saying that Ashley had left it in a room at, if I understand correctly, the rehab facility. Ashley evidently maintains that it was stolen.

James O’Keefe says that Project Veritas looked into the matter but was unable to confirm the authenticity of the document. He says that he offered it to Ashley’s lawyers, but they wouldn’t take it, so he turned it over to law enforcement. In any event, Project Veritas never did anything to make its contents public.

The diary itself–photos of its pages–was published a year ago by an outfit called National File, but it drew little interest or attention. While Project Veritas was unable to confirm its authenticity, that question now has evidently been answered by the FBI.
