Project Veritas obtained video Friday of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg expressing his concern for whistleblowers in the company. The video was part of an internal question and answer session, moderated by Facebook Internal Communications Director Melinda Davenport.
In the video, Zuckerberg talks about a zero-tolerance police. “We need to find and terminate people who leak stuff,” Zuckerberg said. “And we’re very good at rooting out people who are leaking stuff.”
Facebook VP, Deputy General Counsel, Employment Law and Investigations Heidi Swartz was also in the meeting. Swartz pointed to former Facebook employee and whistleblower Morgan Kahmann, using her as an example of what happens to whistleblowers in the company.
“I know some people here feel that there are good leaks and there are bad leaks,” Swartz said, “but they are all damaging and they are not the right way to bring about change.”
This comes roughly a week since Project Veritas’ last whistleblower report on Facebook. In the video, the Facebook executives pointed out that the leak was dangerous because it didn’t bother to protect the names of its employees.

Daily Wire investigation: Italian company may have illegally sold rights to the Vatican’s priceless art
The Daily Wire has been conducting a fascinating investigation into the Vatican Museum’s priceless artwork. “Rights to the Vatican Museums’ priceless trove of art treasures may have been illegally sold without the Holy See’s approval in what one attorney described as a “high-tech heist,” the investigation finds.
An Italian company is allegedly selling the rights to reproduce the Vatican artwork in six-figure deals, while claiming to be working in “collaboration with” the Vatican Museums.
“This scheme is nothing less than a pre-meditated, high-tech heist of world-class treasured art from the Vatican Museums under the disguise of bogus licenses, as if sanctioned by the Vatican,” Sarah Rose Speno, a New York attorney, told The Daily Wire.
The Daily Wire’s report notes that Speno said she stumbled upon the alleged scheme in March when she sought permission to use images of Vatican art for an exhibition by a client.
“We discovered that a large table book had been published with high-resolution images of the interiors of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel,” Speno said. “We very much wanted to pursue an opportunity to license these images, as soon as possible.”
Speno contacted Scripta Maneant — the Italian publisher that licensed the photos in the book. Scripta Maneant claimed authority to broker the publishing rights via its “collaboration” with Vatican Museums vice director, Monsignore Paolo Nicolini. Scripta Maneant wanted $550,000 for the rights — with a portion being paid to the Vatican through Nicolini, according to Speno. Although Scripta Maneant claimed the fee would be shared with the Vatican, Speno said she later became suspicious.
“The Scripta Maneant scheme became obvious when the Scripta principals demanded a cash wire in the amount of $82,500 no later than their return from summer holiday in late August,” Speno said. “They said that they would produce Vatican approval for our Italian Renaissance Immersive project ‘if and only if’ the fee were wired to the Scripta bank account they provided. It was at this point that grave suspicion entered my mind.”
Ultimately, Speno said, “we terminated the deal when Scripta could not provide us with documented consent by the Vatican.”
