James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, announced that he was announcing a lawsuit against Twitter shortly after he was permanently suspended from the platform after exposing CNN for what they truly are.
The lawsuit filed accuses Twitter of falsely claiming that O’Keefe uses fake accounts, as a justification for why he was banned from the platform.
But O’Keefe is not backing down from this fight, he vowed to sue them for compensatory damages and to stop Twitter from spreading “false, misleading, and defamatory” information about him and Project Veritas, and remove any past such statements from anywhere that they were posted.
Twitter banned the guerilla journalist after Project Veritas released a video from an undercover operation exposing a CNN technical director, saying that the network did in fact contribute to the 2020 defeat of President Donald Trump from his reelection bid, and talked about how the COVID-19 pandemic is “gangbuster with ratings.”
Earlier this week O’Keefe announced that he was filing a defamation lawsuit against CNN anchors Ana Cabrera and Brian Stelter for making disparaging on-air remarks about Project Veritas. O’Keefe accused Cabrera of lying when she claimed that the right-wing guerrilla news outlet was taken down by Twitter due to “misinformation.”
Twitter recently suspended Project Veritas’ account back in February for allegedly posting private information.
