A federal court ordered Joe Biden’s Department of Justice to stop extracting data from the phone of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe.

According to court documents, the government must confirm by Nov. 12 that it has stopped the search of O’Keefe’s devices. In addition, the court mandated the federal agents provide a response to O’Keefe’s request for explanation as to why the search was taking place.

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.
