Project Veritas has the proof to hand over to a judge that shows that the DOJ went behind his back and violated his order. Project Veritas took the DOJ to court over their illegal search and seizure of documents and records during raids on Project Veritas and its reporters. Federal Judge Torres.
Torres had ruled that the DOJ could not have “unsupervised and unfettered access to privileged emails and contacts of eight PV journalists.”
The judge told the DOJ that all mate5rial had to go through a special master. Someone who would rule which documents and communications were Germaine and which ones were violations of constitutional rights.
But, the DOJ ignored the judge’s ruling and pulled the journalist’s records from Apple and Google and ordered them to keep quiet about it, but Project Veritas got an order for the information that showed that the DOJ continued to break the law despite the judge’s ruling.
Project Veritas reported:
Project Veritas announced today that Apple and Google came forward and provided documents showing that President Biden’s Department of Justice issued nine secret subpoenas to them for multiple Project Veritas journalists’ private information.
The subpoenas and warrants even extended to the journalists’ security detail.
In addition to compelling Apple and Google not to disclose that the constitutionally-protected information of journalists was being surveilled by the highest levels of our government, the Department of Justice sought payment information, MAC addresses, browsing history and other personal information from multiple employees of Project Veritas.
Paul Calli, an attorney for Project Veritas, pointed out that the actions from the government were disproportionate, in addition to arguing the DOJ violated the Privacy Protection Act, the First and Fourth Amendments, and Common Law Reporter’s Privilege.
“By no reasonable measure can the wholesale seizure of newsgathering materials, attorney-client privileged communications, and irrelevant personal information be considered a proportional response to an alleged low-grade larceny, much less to a non-crime,” said Calli in Project Veritas’ motion filed in response to the disclosures from Microsoft.
The DOJ’s spying campaign represents the latest example of governmental misconduct in, what appears to be, a politically motivated investigation. President Biden’s Department of Justice has placed its crosshairs squarely on Project Veritas’ newsgathering activities pertaining to apparent allegations against then-candidate, Joe Biden, which were made by his daughter, Ashley Biden, in her diary.
