Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe announced Thursday on Fox News’ “Hannity” that he’s suing Twitter following the banning of his account by the social media giant.
O’Keefe’s account was permanently suspended just days after Project Veritas began releasing video footage that appeared to show CNN technical director Charlie Chester admitting the network uses “propaganda.”
“A lot of lawsuits coming from Project Veritas here. We won in the Supreme Court in New York against The New York Times for defamation, and now we’re going to go ahead and sue Twitter for suspending my account and falsely and maliciously claiming that I did something that I did not do,” O’Keefe said in response to host Sean Hannity’s questions about the lawsuit.
O’Keefe and Project Veritas is currently involved in an ongoing lawsuit against The New York Times, Fox News reported.
