The allegations were made in a court filing Tuesday as part of a larger battle against the Justice Department. In November, FBI agents searched an apartment owned by Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe, seeking evidence for their investigation into the theft of a diary owned by President Joe Biden's daughter, Ashley Biden. Project Veritas has fought the search warrants in court, saying that the seizure of O'Keefe's phone "imperils a large amount of attorney-client privileged material, First Amendment-protected material, as well as the confidential donor information."
