Biden’s DOJ spied illegally on Project Veritas and 8 journalists, despite the fact that the judge ruled against them getting unfettered access to their communications. The judge told them they would need a special master to oversee them to make sure the journalists and Project Veritas was protected. PJ received documents from Microsoft that prove the DOJ violated the court order. They just want to know what stories they are working on so they will know how to cover them up.
The documents prove that without a doubt the Biden DOJ went behind the judge’s back and illegally obtained the documents from Microsoft. It is quite possible and certainly probable that they gained access to other social networks in their spying. But, guess who has the last word on whether there are prosecutions. That’s right, the DOJ. Remember Eric Holder investigated himself a couple of times and the end result was that he found himself to be as pure as the driven snow.
Via Project Veritas:
Bombshell Microsoft Corporation legal documents released by Project Veritas reveal that President Biden’s Department of Justice filed a series of secret warrants, orders, and a subpoena to surreptitiously collect privileged, and constitutionally protected, communications and contacts of eight Project Veritas journalists from Microsoft Corporation.
The Department of Justice then muzzled Microsoft from disclosing these orders via a series of secrecy orders signed by magistrates.
The documents further reveal the DOJ then went behind U.S. District Court Judge, Analisa Torres’, back to obtain extensions on the gag-orders on Microsoft from magistrate judges after Judge Torres ruled Project Veritas was entitled to “journalistic privileges.”
Despite multiple opportunities to do so, the DOJ has not publicly disclosed the orders, warrants, or subpoenas to Judge Torres or Special Master Judge Barbara Jones – who was appointed by Judge Torres to protect Veritas’ “journalistic privileges” from potential DOJ overreach. Judge Torres ruled that the DOJ’s investigation must be overseen by Judge Jones and ordered the DOJ not to review any materials seized from Project Veritas without Judge Jones’ approval.
The DOJ has not sought Judge Jones’ approval to review Project Veritas’ materials seized from Microsoft.
The documents uncover a sixteen-month clandestine campaign against journalists in which the DOJ obtained 7 secret orders, warrants and subpoenas from six magistrates within the Southern District of New York.
