James O’Keefe, former head of Project Veritas, has insinuated that he is connected with those who are part of the grand jury deliberating whether to indict ex-President Donald Trump.
This week, President Trump was implicated by Manhattan District Alvin Bragg in a probe involving an alleged payment to adult actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election. Reports indicate that a grand jury is currently weighing whether or not to bring criminal charges against him.
When an O’Keefe enthusiast asked if the organization had someone on their team from within, O’Keefe replied that there are in fact multiple insiders at work.
“The real question is how many do we have on the inside? Stay tuned,” O’Keefe wrote on Twitter.
TEASES FIRST RELEASE
In 2010, O’Keefe founded Project Veritas. Unfortunately, he was suspended by the board of directors in February as the board tried to distance themselves from litigation and essentially stole the company away from founder O’Keefe. His ambitious new venture is known as O’Keefe Media Group, otherwise referred to as OMG.
O’Keefe said that the new group has been sending cameras out, “which means the OMG army of exposers will soon be holding those in power accountable.”
O’Keefe warned people who are planning wrongdoing, adding: “You’re being watched. We’re coming after you. The next time you try and take advantage of honest Americans, the person sitting next to you might have a microphone or a camera. You see, the world is watching. And if you’re lying, cheating, stealing, or scamming, you might be the next unwilling star of the internet.”
On March 27, O’Keefe announced that OMG’s debut story will be available to the public.
At least one Project Veritas alumnus has formed an alliance with O’Keefe’s latest undertaking. R.C Maxwell, a former member of the team at Project Veritas, is appearing in O’Keefe’s new video production.
O’Keefe said in another Twitter post he’d just spent one day this week in three states.
“Just wrapped a 20 hour day. Three states, multiple investigations fueled by so many citizens,” he wrote.
OMG strives to revolutionize the concept of news gathering by collecting funds from its supporters, which are used to purchase cameras and distribute them among “citizen journalists” who capture significant events with their lenses.
O’Keefe said on March 16 that news organizations “simply can’t hire everyone.” “But what if there was a way to empower and mobilize journalists, citizen journalists, and decentralized journalism? In the same way that Uber did that for the taxi, if there was a way to do that for thousands and thousands of people? And you might say, well, that’s impossible, that’s too difficult. Well, that’s the mission that I’m embarking on.”
Individuals have already expressed their interest in obtaining cameras from OMG to record school meetings and other occasions, according to O’Keefe.
When posed with the inquiry of whether the citizen journalists would be financially compensated, O’Keefe admitted that he wasn’t sure.
“Most people want to do this for free,” he said.
“I don’t know exactly how it’s going to work, we’re going to figure it out,” he added later.
O’Keefe said being ousted from Project Veritas has turned out to be a “blessing in disguise” because it let him start the new group.
