Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe on Paid Leave After Viral Pfizer Video
Conservative investigative journalist James O’Keefe has exposed many scandals of the leftist-run establishment and businesses, mainly in controversial issues like abortion and vaccination.
But his recent undercover video of a Pfizer director has endangered his own position as he has been placed on paid leave with the possibility of removal from his position.
James O’Keefe, the founder and chairman of Project Veritas, has been banned and censored on leftist social media and labeled as a “provocateur” on Wikipedia because he has exposed the corruption and abusive practices in many organizations receiving government funding.
On February 2, O’Keefe posted an undercover video of Pfizer Director of Research and Development Jordon Trishton Walker. In the video, Walker is seen suggesting that the mRNA COVID vaccines – like Pfizer’s – are interfering with women’s menstrual cycles and must be affecting women’s hormones.
The video confirmed what informed critics of the vaccines had been saying since the early days of the mRNA COVID jabs rolled out to the public: the shots were interfering with the normal menstrual process in women and adolescent girls. But the information didn’t have the kind of impact as that coming from the very people who manufacture the shots.
O’Keefe’s video of Jordon Trishton Walker talking about menstrual and hormonal irregularity in COVID vaccinated women and the need to investigate the matter sparked renewed interest in and concern over the health risks of mRNA vaccines for COVID-19. Critics of COVID shots started talking about intentional harm done by Pfizer to public health by ignoring and suppressing the effects of its jab on women’s health and possibly on fertility.
On February 3, just a day after the video of Jordon Trishton Walker was posted, Twitter suspended the account of Project Veritas and raised concerns about free speech. Many, including James O’Keefe, called on Elon Musk to look into it. Shortly afterward, Project Veritas’s account was restored, and Twitter received a note of thanks from O’Keefe.
On Wednesday, January 8, the media reported that O’Keefe had been sent on paid leave. It’s also been reported that the Project Veritas board is considering whether to remove him from his leadership position. The organization’s executive director, Daniel Strack, was cited in a story by The Daily Caller saying:
“Like all newsrooms at this stage, the Project Veritas Board of Directors and Management are constantly evaluating what the best path forward is for the organization.”
While Project Veritas is considering how to decide on the future of O’Keefe’s position in the organization, major donors to the organization are seemingly unhappy with its board and have sent a Cease and Desist Demand letter to the organization via a law firm.
The letter expresses “grave concerns about the Board of Directors’ reported action to remove Founder and CEO, James O’Keefe…” A copy of the letter was shared on Twitter by various accounts.
