Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview, “We will not let fear dictate our actions,” after the FBI conducted a bizarre raid on his home in November, looking for information about Ashley Biden’s diary.
O’Keefe told Breitbart News at Turning Point USA’s recent AmericaFest conference in Phoenix, Arizona, that the FBI “came into my apartment, they handcuffed me, they took my phones, and it is a gross, unconstitutional violation.”
“They can’t do that to journalists in this country. We have a First Amendment,” O’Keefe said. “This was a gross overstep by the government, and we will be vindicated, and we will get our justice, and we will not live in fear.”
“We will not let fear dictate our actions,” he affirmed.
After the raid, a federal judge ordered that a “special master” be appointed to review data from O’Keefe’s cellular phones the FBI seized in the raid.
“And this judge was an Obama-appointed federal judge, so sometimes there are still certain boundaries that we can’t cross, and there are certain things we should all agree on,” O’Keefe said. “Raiding journalists’ homes because you don’t like what they’re doing is, I think, a bridge too far for many people.”
