Well, James O’Keefe is officially out at Project Veritas, and we now know exactly what happened based on a 40+ minute video of him saying “goodbye” to his core team. After being forced to stay quiet for weeks, James basically spilled the beans about everything that happened, and how he was removed by a board that went totally rogue, and really whipped things up into a frenzy to try and get him ousted. The timing, as James points out, is very suspicious.
James O’Keefe, the embattled leader of the conservative group Project Veritas, has been removed from his position amid a series of questions about his oversight of the organization, according to a speech he gave to the group.
“I was stripped of all decision-making last week,” Mr. O’Keefe said in a video of the speech, which was posted on Monday.
“Currently, I have no job at Project Veritas. I have no position here based upon what the board has done — so I’m announcing to you all that today, on Presidents’ Day, I’m packing up my personal belongings here,” Mr. O’Keefe said.
Earlier this month, Project Veritas’s board placed Mr. O’Keefe on paid leave after employees complained about his management style and his use of the group’s funds.
Since founding Project Veritas in his father’s garage in suburban New York in 2010, Mr. O’Keefe had been the face of the group. He rose to prominence during Donald J. Trump’s presidency, as Mr. Trump and his followers embraced Mr. O’Keefe, who relied on controversial tactics like hidden-camera videos that targeted liberal groups and the news media. Amid the praise from conservative figures, Project Veritas — which the I.R.S. recognized as a tax-exempt nonprofit — raised $20 million a year from donors.
I watched the entire 40+ minutes of this video, and I would suggest you do, too. The picture of what happened will be crystal clear.
And one thing that James seems to allude to, is that the timing of this – right after their biggest story of all time, the Pfizer hit – isn’t a coincidence. I read through the lines, and it’s my opinion that James O’Keefe believes there’s a link between his firing and the Pfizer piece.
He also lists all the “absurd” reasons they supposedly wanted to get rid of him, and none of that stuff adds up. It makes no sense.
James goes through everything that happened, and at the end he gets very emotional, and every cries at one point.
He also calls on his team to find out what really happened… I am sure they will.
God Bless @JamesOKeefeIII

If you ask me, they removed O’Keefe from Project Veritas because under his leadership things went “too far.” It’s one thing to get a CNN producer on camera talking shit about Trump, it’s quite another getting some Pfizer nutbag admitting to ghoulish atrocities. They had to rein PV back in.
