Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe says he was listening in for months on CNN’s morning calls. On Tuesday, he released some audio of those calls.

Earlier on Tuesday, O’Keefe crashed CNN’s morning call and announced that ‘HUNDREDS of hours’ of audio recordings would be released at 7 pm Eastern Time Tuesday. During the call, O’Keefe spoke directly to CNN’s president, Jeff Zucker.

In response, CNN Communications said they’ve “referred it to law enforcement.”

In the first tape, CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel appears to be heard saying their network shouldn’t cover President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede the election to Joe Biden.

“…news organizations have to be very careful and very responsible about not giving Trump too much of a platform on his not conceding because they feel the transition can go forward,” Gangel allegedly can be heard saying at one point in the recording.

In a second tape, Zucker can be allegedly heard urging his team to “lean into” the fact that Trump “…is all over and acting erratically.”

Later in the recording, Zucker apparently says the news organization’s “banners have been too polite, and we need to go well after Lindsey Graham,” adding that he “… really deserves it.”

CNN’s President of Global Programming Marcus Mabry can be heard in one tape slamming Fox News and specifically “the naked racism of Tucker Carlson,” according to Project Veritas.

However, CNN claims the voice in that tape was “actually GA resident & CNN General Counsel David Vigilante.”

“We’re certain you’ll want to correct the record and apologize to the Black executive for assuming he was the voice raising concerns over white supremacy,” CNN Communications added.

Project Veritas has been working to expose the news network and earlier captured Zucker allegedly pushing that he only wanted his newsroom to focus on the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
