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.

Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year

The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.

According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.

ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.

Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries. 

Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.

Surprisingly, ADN reports:

A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.

Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
