“… something to keep in mind about the raids on Project Veritas: the original copy of the diary and the digital copy that ended up at The National File both originated at Project Veritas.  The tipsters approached PV looking for a payday with that diary.  PV couldn’t authenticate, took a pass on publishing. A disgruntled and pissed off PV employee then took a digital copy of the diary to The National File, who published it.  These look like ‘chain-of-custody’ raids.  Somebody wants the entire chain of custody of both the real diary and the digital copy/s, beginning at PV.  Why?  See the next post:

1. IF the diary was real, there is a chance it actually was stolen.  We just have the anonymous tipster’s word for it they just happened to ‘find’ it.  If they took it without authorization and sought payment for it, that’s a crime.  We have it from O’Keefe himself the tipsters were negotiating through legal representatives for payment, that monetary negotiations were going on.

2. There’s also the chance that the diary is fake.  In that case it’s also a case of fraud, if the anonymous tipsters solicited payment for something that wasn’t real.  That is a crime even if no money changes hands.

A lot of people, of course, are already firmly settled on their narrative that the diary is real. Or that’s it’s fake.  And they’re going to immediately want to argue with me about this.”
