Last Wednesday news broke that James O’Keefe was placed on paid leave from Project Veritas and will be taking a few weeks of “well-deserved PTO.”
TGP’s Brian Lupo later reported that the Project Veritas donors sent a cease and desist letter to the Project Veritas Board accusing them of stepping afoul. The donors demand James O’Keefe be reinstated as as CEO of the organization.
From my source: “The big wig donors to Project Veritas are not taking the board actions against James O’Keefe lying down.“

Steve Bannon weighed in on the latest Veritas developments on Saturday.
Bannon went to bat for James and told the board to back down.
Steve Bannon: “We’ve got, by the way, the Veritas situation. A brutal letter from donors. I think, had a bellyful full of these games that have been played over the last couple of days. (They) sent a letter that fully froze everything in place, and quite frankly, we said what the donors are saying, what we’ve been saying, “James O’Keefe is Veritas, right?”
O’Keefe’s not perfect. I’m not perfect. Trump’s not perfect. People are not perfect. But James O’Keefe is Veritas. And what that guy has done to build that organization from the twelve or 13 years that I’ve known him is just absolutely incredible. I mean, absolutely incredible!
And right in the middle of this Pfizer investigation, just when they got this amazing breaking stuff on Pfizer that dovetails with what Naomi Wolf and the War Room team have been saying. The timing could not be worse. We don’t have time for games. We don’t have time for ego plays. We don’t have time for games. We don’t have time for power struggles. We don’t. The hour is late, okay? We got to be up and aligned and on focus and on point here. And that’s why it’s so outrageous what’s happening over there. And I’m really glad that James got some lawyers that dropped the hammer and glad that the donors finally stood up and said, hey, this is ridiculous, right?
