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.”

Two more staffers are reportedly leaving their jobs in Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, according to the Washington Post. The news comes just after Harris’ chief spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, announced her departure.

“Symone Sanders, the senior adviser and chief spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, is expected to leave the White House at the end of the year, according to five administration officials familiar with the matter,” Politico reported.

In addition to Sanders, “Peter Velz, director of press operations, and Vince Evans, deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the vice president’s office, have also told others in the vice president’s office that they are leaving, according to two administration officials,” the Washington Post reported.

Earlier this week, Sanders officially announced her departure in a note to the Vice President’s team.

“I’m so grateful to the VP for her vote of confidence from the very beginning and the opportunity to see what can be unburdened by what has been. I’m grateful for [Harris chief of staff] Tina [Flournoy] and her leadership and her confidence as well,” Sanders wrote. “Every day, I arrived to the White House complex knowing our work made a tangible difference for Americans. I am immensely grateful and will miss working for her and with all of you.”

The news comes just weeks after Harris’ communications director Ashley Etienne filed her resignation.

“Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official stated. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

“Harris’ office has been beset by disorder, bad press, and, at times, internal frictions,” Politico reported, adding, “ … in recent weeks, chatter has grown increasingly loud that Harris wasn’t positioned well to be Biden’s heir apparent in 2028 or, if he opts not to run again, in 2024.”
