(Republican Party News) – According to WND, the New York Times published a report last week that revealed how conservative investigative journalist group Project Veritas managed to come into possession of a diary that was penned by President Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden (pictured above with Jill Biden).
This new report said that the FBI raided the home of James O’Keefe, the man who founded Project Veritas back in November. According to a statement from O’Keefe, federal agents also conducted searches of the homes of other individuals who are tied to Project Veritas and ended up taking away various materials.
Apparently, the aim of the FBI in doing these raids was to find out whether there was some sort of criminal conspiracy concerning Project Veritas journalists to steal and release the contents of Ashley’s diary, which contained documentation of her time in recovery for addiction.
According to O’Keefe, his organization received the diary from tipsters who made the claim that it belonged to Ashley Biden.
“However, Project Veritas did not publish the diary’s contents because the organization couldn’t verify its authenticity. Project Veritas surrendered the diary to law enforcement,” the report said.
The investigation concerning how PV got the diary is still, as of this writing, being conducted.
“The New York Times reported Thursday that it has found out how the diary reached Project Veritas — a story that, according to the outlet, begins in the spring of last year,” WND said.
While her father was running for president, Ashley stayed in Delray Beach, Florida, trying to keep a low profile.
The report from WND says that she stayed with a friend who rented a two-bedroom house in the area. Ashley had also been in Florida while undergoing rehab.
“In June 2020, Ashley moved to Philadelphia, intending to return to the Delray Beach home in the fall. That was when her friend let an ex-girlfriend, Aimee Harris, and her two children move into the home, according to the Times,” the report continued.
“According to The Times, two individuals familiar with the matter said Harris soon discovered that Ashley used to live in the home and that a few of her belongings were still there. Harris’ social media postings indicate she was a supporter of then-President Donald Trump, according to the Times,” WND reported.
Back in September of 2020, Project Veritas reportedly got the diary from Harris and a friend of hers. How this transfer took place is still being investigated.
“According to what Project Veritas told a federal judge in a court filing, around Sept. 3 last year, a tipster left a voice message for Project Veritas saying that “a new occupant moved into a place where Ashley Biden had previously been staying and found Ms. Biden’s diary and other personal items,” WND went on to say.
According to the court filing, the tipster had said, “the diary is pretty crazy.”
Project Veritas has stated that it bought the diary using an unidentified proxy from “A.H.” and “R.K.,” which, according to the report from the Times, is a reference to Harris and Robert Kurlander, a friend of Harris’ and a former roommate.
The report says that Harris is “fully cooperating with the investigation and will remain responsive to the government’s requests for evidence and for her version of events,” Guy Ronstin, her lawyer, went on to say to the Times in an email.
“When the facts emerge it will be clear that my client has information relative to the investigation but no culpability,” the email said.
Kurlander and his attorney have not yet, as of this writing, provided a comment.
