O’Keefe revealed the FBI took two of his iPhones and called the raids an “attack on the First Amendment.”
The FBI claimed the search is connected to the alleged diary of Ashley Biden, which was never published by Project Veritas. Meanwhile, Candace Owens said the FBI raided Project Veritas to uncover its contacts within the government and hinder its anti-corruption investigations.
