Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, announced on Sunday Morning Futures that he is legal action against CNN with a defamation lawsuit to be expected on Monday.
“There are people on Twitter who are impersonating me who still remain on Twitter,” he said. “I will depose [Jack Dorsey] under oath… And tomorrow I will sue CNN.”
Project Veritas has two ongoing legal battles with the New York Times for another defamation suit that just moved passed a motion to dismiss, and more recently one that was filed against Twitter for defamation in New York after the big tech giant removed the founder shortly after exposing CNN for manipulating political events. Twitter falsely claimed O’Keefe was removed from the platform for operating fake accounts, which he denies.
O’Keefe said that he’s expanding the lawsuit to challenge CNN after anchor Ana Cabrera made claims on air that Project Veritas’ Twitter ban was the product of spreading disinformation.
“Not even Twitter alleges that I was banned, or Project Veritas was banned, for disinformation,” he said. “Every day in this country people are defamed and lied about constantly and they don’t have the will, the money, the resources to fight back. So Veritas is going to be the tip of that spear.”
The ability to sue Twitter and CNN stands on the grounds of libel lawsuits, which O’Keefe said will be an easy win with the video evidence supplied. He said Project Veritas had never lost a lawsuit in corporate history.
“We don’t settle. We fight all the way to a jury verdict and we’ve never lost.”
