Federal Court Orders DOJ to Stop ‘Extraction’ of Information from James O’Keefe’s Phones Obtained by FBI Raid

A win for the Project Veritas founder.

QUICK FACTS:
  • On Saturday, the FBI searched the home of James O’Keefe, investigative journalist and Project Veritas founder.
  • O’Keefe’s home was raided reportedly because law enforcement wants to know how O’Keefe came to possess a diary allegedly stolen from Ashley Biden, Joe Biden’s daughter.
  • The FBI also searched the homes of two O’Keefe associates.
  • O’Keefe’s lawyer, Harmeet Dhillon, tweeted on Thursday that a federal court had “ordered the DOJ to STOP extracting data from our client, journalist James O’Keefe’s phone, and ordered a hearing. Counsel for Project Veritas asked the court to do this yesterday!”
