James O’Keefe, the founder and former CEO of Project Veritas, has recently been ousted from his position by the company’s board of directors. The circumstances surrounding his removal have left many wondering about the true motives behind the decision.
O’Keefe founded Project Veritas in 2011, starting the non-profit investigative journalism outlet in his father’s basement. Since then, the organization has grown tremendously and has produced undercover footage from some of the biggest organizations in the world, including Pfizer and Twitter.
However, in the past few weeks, O’Keefe had a very public blow-up with one of the company’s board members, which led to a group of 16 employees signing a letter expressing their frustration with his management style and business acumen.
This tension came to a head with his sudden removal from the company in mid-February.
The timing of his ousting is particularly suspect, as it occurred just after Project Veritas released a bombshell undercover sting on a senior Pfizer executive. The executive was caught discussing mutating COVID-19 in order to create new vaccines, a story that O’Keefe considers the biggest in the organization’s history.
The fallout from his departure has been significant, with Project Veritas losing over 225,000 followers on Twitter and big-money donors issuing a cease and desist order to the company. They have expressed concerns about the board of directors’ reported action to remove O’Keefe from his leadership position.
Despite this setback, O’Keefe remains undeterred in his mission. In his farewell address to staff, he hinted at a new venture and declared that “the mission continues on”. It remains to be seen what this new venture will be, but it is clear that O’Keefe is not done fighting for his cause.
The circumstances surrounding O’Keefe’s removal from Project Veritas may be shrouded in mystery, but what is certain is that he remains a passionate and committed individual who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth.
Regardless of what comes next for James – we are with him.
