Project Veritas ‘Committed Suicide,’ Ousts James O’Keefe

'Our mission continues on. I'm not done... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Project Veritas’s James O’Keefe announced Monday that the board of directors of the organization he founded had fired him, after weeks of public obfuscation, denials and assurances from board members that they weren’t plotting to oust the star investigative reporter.

O’Keefe made the announcement in a video that provided more details on why he was given the boot in the wake of two bombshell undercover video reports on Pfizer that he produced. The board of directors used the pretext of a fundraising disagreement as cover for the firing, according to O’Keefe.

“A few days after the Pfizer story, I was informed by an officer of Project Veritas that he would resign unless I step down as CEO,” O’Keefe’s said. “We’ve been having a conflict of vision over fundraising, there were tactical disagreements about the boldness of approach soliciting donations.”

It came down to priorities, O’Keefe said.

“We measure our success in terms of what we produce, not just in terms of our wallets,” O’Keefe explained.

O’Keefe fired the employee after the disagreement and subsequently was informed that the board was planning to restructure the company. He learned the news via an email he received while sitting on a plane waiting to depart, and was told the meeting was scheduled for the moment he was due to land.

“It became clear to me in that moment, I would be removed from my position at Project Veritas,” O’Keefe said.

He was spot on with the prediction, and the public backlash over the board’s decision has been fierce.

O’Keefe said he will continue producing the same groundbreaking, bombshell reports, regardless of where he lands or how the future unfolds.

“Our mission continues on. I’m not done. The mission will perhaps take on a new name. I’ll make sure you know how to find me.”
