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.

An estimated 1.1 million illegal immigrants are married to United States citizens, and President Joe Biden just gave them a path to amnesty. The administration announced Tuesday that the sweeping executive action will provide legal protections in an effort to “keep families together” known as the “parole in place” program.

Eligible individuals will be protected from deportation and be provided with work permits if they have lived in the U.S. for at least a decade. They have three years to apply for permanent citizenship.

“President Biden believes that securing the border is essential,” the White House said in a statement. “He also believes in expanding lawful pathways and keeping families together, and that immigrants who have been in the United States for decades, paying taxes and contributing to their communities, are part of the social fabric of our country.”

National Review reports an estimated 500,000 people could benefit, and that Biden is expected to celebrate the executive action at a White House event celebrating the 12-year anniversary of former president Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which shields illegal-immigrant children from deportation. The new order will also make DACA recipients eligible for Obamacare.
The Biden administration is also crafting a plan to streamline the process for undocumented students and other illegal immigrants to receive temporary work visas, according to National Review which also notes that “although DACA has survived legal challenges up to this point, it’s unclear if Biden’s new executive action will have a similar fate, particularly given the composition of the Supreme Court.”
