While FBI is unwilling to investigate massive crimes and corruption of the Biden family, it has lately targeted Project Veritas founder for the “crime” of leaking Ashley Biden’s bombshell diary. Writes Daniel Greenfield
“It’s only journalism when we do it. When you do it’s a crime and the FBI will come after you.”
A pair of Florida residents pleaded guilty in Manhattan federal court Thursday to stealing the diary and other property belonging to President Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley, and selling them to the conservative investigative group Project Veritas.
Aimee Harris, 40, and Robert Kurlander, 58, took part in transporting stolen materials from Florida, where the president’s daughter had been living, to New York, where Project Veritas is headquartered. Their actions took place in the final weeks ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
“Harris and Kurlander stole personal property from an immediate family member of a candidate for national political office,” Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said in a statement.
The court records further suggest Project Veritas asked the pair to return to Florida to gather more of Biden’s daughter’s property after Harris said there was “additional property” she could access.
So Biden’s DOJ is pretty clearly building a case against Project Veritas.
The media does this all the time. They just describe it as “leaks”. They get hold of massive caches of stolen documents and then describe them as having been “leaked” even when they were stolen by hackers and even when the media operatives were in close contact with the hackers.
A typical case involved Elliott Broidy, a deputy finance chairman for the Republican National Committee,
In his story, LoBianco wrote of a “cache of emails obtained by the AP.“ The emails are described as having been “anonymously leaked.“ A more factually accurate term would have been “hacked” or “stolen“.
The hack of the Oath Keepers site similarly was described as a “leak.” No one seems to bother investigating these hacks or leaks. No progress has been made on the investigation of the Supreme Court’s abortion draft which was used to incite rioting and a campaign of domestic terrorism by abortion groups.
But Ashley Biden’s diary is sacrosanct.
It’s not wrong to treat taking someone’s private papers as a crime. But Democrats, their DOJ operatives and the media clearly don’t believe that’s the case. Much as with Hunter Biden’s laptop, they only think it’s wrong when it’s done to them, not when they do it.
This isn’t law enforcement or the rule of law. Much like the Mar-a-Lago raid or the plethora of judicial decisions by Obama and Clinton appointees which could be summed up as “Obama can do it and no one is allowed to change what he did” and “Trump can’t do it even though there’s ample precedent because we say so”.
That’s not just a double standard. Selective partisan enforcement is simply tyranny under the color of law.
Either we live in a country where people’s private emails, information and papers are sacrosanct or in one where they’re all fair game. I would prefer to live in the former nation, but instead we live in one where conservatives are always fair game and lefties never are. That’s the reason that an organization like Project Veritas exists in the first place.
Project Veritas has spent quite a few years now using the media’s own tactics against it. And demonstrating the hypocrisy of the media and the political machine which it serves and which protects its crimes.
