Project Veritas Founder: ‘I’m going to sue CNN for defamation’
Project Veritas released video clips Tuesday that revealed CNN’s focus was “to get Trump out of office” during the 2020 presidential election.
“If it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,” CNN’s technical director, Charlie Chester can be heard saying in the clips.
“Our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what is was,” Chester continued, while adding that the network pushed anti-Trump “propaganda.”
Project Veritas founder and CEO James O’Keefe joined ‘Hannity’ to talk about the staggering implications this has and what his next plans are, including a potential lawsuit.
“Google and Twitter prefer CNN in their algorithms and CNN considers themselves the most trusted name in news. But here they are, admitting that they are trying to help certain political candidates and they’re trying to hide that,” O’Keefe said.
O’Keefe added that since CNN has refused to comment on the newly-released clips, he will be releasing part two tomorrow.
“There’s been radio silence from CNN. No one has been able to get a comment from CNN so this so we intend to release part two tomorrow,” O’Keefe told Hannity.
Part two will expose fraud and misrepresentation that CNN reported on related to Covid, O’Keefe said, adding that this information is “even worse” than what was previously released.
“So we’re just going to keep releasing more tapes and we do think either (Charlie Chester) will be terminated or CNN will have to issue a comment,” O’Keefe said.
O’Keefe announced that he is planning to sue CNN for defamation after host Anna Cabrera slandered Project Veritas for “misinformation.”
“We believe we can win against CNN so I’m announcing on your show I’m going to sue CNN for defamation,” O’Keefe said. “I think a lot of people need to start suing the media for defamation. It’s disgraceful what they’re doing, it’s disgusting.”
CNN did not respond to SaraACarter.com’s requests for comments. The story will be updated if and when a statement is provided.
