The hypocrisy of the Biden regime is immeasurable, they have been painting themselves as a champion of press freedom, but in reality, they are the first to silence anyone who goes against their narrative.
And now, they are facing new doubts because of the Justice Department’s aggressive legal tactics against a conservative provocateur known for his hidden-camera video stings.
Donald Trump Jr. described the alarming footage as an ‘unconstitutional pre-dawn raid’ on a journalist’s house. The footage was taken in November 2021 and was first shared by Project Veritas on Wednesday.
Also, the FBI spied on Fox News reporter James Rosen and the Department of Justice seized the phone records of dozens of Associated Press journalists.
O’Keefe says at the beginning of the video:
“The government’s invasion of our First Amendment rights should send shivers down the spine of every journalist around the country.”

The FBI hit the homes of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, who was awakened in his Westchester County, New York home in his underwear to the federal lawmen, and another of the organization’s journalists
‘The government’s invasion of our First Amendment rights should send shivers down the spine of every journalist in the country,’ O’Keefe said of the raid.
He said that federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York and the FBI targeted Project Veritas because of its investigative journalism.
O’Keefe maintains that his organization lawfully obtained the diary of Ashley Biden, which had entries about her father, who was running for president at the time.
He then explains what precipitated the FBI’s decisions to raid the homes of reporters.
“In 2020, we lawfully received material from sources concerning Ashley Biden’s diary and what it said about her father, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden,” O’Keefe recounts.
“We ultimately decided not to publish the story and worked with local law enforcement to return these materials to her,” he adds.
“What you have just seen is an effort by the government to intimidate and silence us as journalists, but Project Veritas will never be silenced,” O’Keefe says.

Multiple organizations came out against these raids, including no less than the left-leaning American Civil Liberties Union, O’Keefe noted.
‘[T]he precedent set in this case could have serious consequences for press freedom,” said ACLU senior staff attorney Brian Hauss in a statement.
“Unless the government had good reason to believe that Project Veritas employees were directly involved in the criminal theft of the diary, it should not have subjected them to invasive searches and seizures,” he added.
“We urge the court to appoint a special master to ensure that law enforcement officers review only those materials that were lawfully seized and that are directly relevant to a legitimate criminal investigation,” Hauss said.
Joe Biden’s regime is practicing this third-world stuff, silencing media outlets who go against their tyranny.
This aggressive act of Joe Biden’s regime sends a direct message to other conservative journalists going forward: “You could be next.”
