Weeks after being banned on Twitter, Project Veritas is now suing CNN for defamation. In the suit, they claim that CNN maliciously made false allegations that damaged their reputation.

It all began when Project Veritas publicized secretly recorded video of CNN technical director Charlie Chester. There wasn’t just one video, not just two, but three highly edited videos.

As a result, Twitter banned Project Veritas and its founder James O’Keefe. The social media platform claimed that there were “repeated violations of Twitter’s policies prohibiting the sharing of other people’s private information without consent.” Which, in the lawsuit, its lawyers do not deny. “

Then, O’Keefe swore to also sue Twitter himself for falsely banning him. Twitter claimed he had operated false accounts, but O’Keefe denies the allegation.

Next, CNN made no comment on the matter, and as far as anyone knows Charlie Chester is still employed with the network. But, their host Ana Cabrera went on to falsely claim that Project Veritas was banned for spreading misinformation. Previously, on April 11th, she’d tweeted the true reason for the ban, but went on to criticize Project Veritas. The company is suing her for comments she made on April 15th.

O’Keefe appeared on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo to say that he is confident that his company will win the lawsuit.

“I think a lot of people need to start suing the media for defamation,” O’Keefe said. “It’s disgraceful what they’re doing, it’s disgusting.”

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
