Project Veritas Shuts Down, Fires All Journalists and Employees After Ousting O’Keefe: Report

Project Veritas has reportedly shut its doors after the tumultuous ousting founder James O’Keefe earlier this year

Today it was reported that Project Veritas has fired all of its reporters and shuttered its operations months after the group ousted its founder, James O’Keefe, claiming that he created a hostile work environment and consumed an outsized portion of company resources.

The news was broken by former Project Veritas employee Bobby Harr, who is now an independent reporter. Harr wrote that Project Veritas suspended its operations, effective immediately, on September 21.

Harr claimed that CEO Hannah Giles, who was involved in the ACORN sting video with O’Keefe and returned to the company in his absence, reportedly cited “financial ruin” as the reason for the final layoffs, and reported that all investigations have been halted.

Reporting from The Post Millennial indicates those remaining employees who were not fired in August were terminated in a mass firing on Wednesday, adding that those who remained until that point were mostly administrative staff, or those charged with fundraising.

A post that was briefly published, then deleted, on the official Project Veritas X/Twitter account on August 17 read “SOS Hannah Giles just fired us all.” The company did not comment on the post’s meaning.

Another source told the outlet that “the donations dried up” after O’Keefe left the group. The source claimed Project Veritas’s board was “desperate to bring Hannah on board because they thought it would be cute but the problem is she’s a charlatan and a fraud.”

O’Keefe has not responded directly to the statement, nor has his new O’Keefe Media Group (OMG), but he did share a statement provided to MediaIte by his lawyer on X, formerly Twitter.

“It appears that in the few months since Project Veritas ousted James, it continued to spend money at the same rate, blowing through the many millions of dollars James had previously raised for it – despite PV having no new sources of fundraising,” said attorney Jeffrey Lichtman to the outlet. “This is highly suspect and we would welcome a full audit of PV’s finances to learn where that money was actually spent.”

Project Veritas commissioned an outside firm to create a lengthy report on O’Keefe’s alleged wrongdoing after he was ousted. The company chose not to make it public, but it was later leaked by former Project Veritas employees.

The report made a series of unfounded claims about O’Keefe, including that he instructed employees to engage in illegal behavior and routinely belittled subordinates. It is unclear how much money Project Veritas spent on the report after ousting O’Keefe.

    Just another liberal take down of people who they can’t control to tell their lies. Add Project Veritas to Drudge Report and Fox News to some extent.

    Censorship is the only tool available to the Liberal NAZIS who have no answer to their horrible behavior. Liberals must be so happy to get back their favorite activities of destroying Constitutional freedoms and murdering the unborn.

    Knew that was gonna happen. Just like I know for certain that there was major voter fraud. And the reason they’re so worried about Trump. Trump has the receipts on the skeleton/closet.

    James O’Keefe must be sitting in his office laughing and spinning around in his chair. O’Keefe WAS Project Veritas. This a great lesson for business owners.
    1) Stay small.
    2) If you hit it big time…..Don’t go Public.
    3) If you go Public….never, ever have a minor share. Always have at least 51% of the company stock. Look at what happened to Steve Jobs at Apple. He got fired in 1985 from the company he founded. Sadly, it happens all to often.

      And Apple had to bring Steve Jobs back to fix it. It would be interesting to see what happens to the people that stuck with Priject Veritas going forth. Will they be rewarded for sinking the ship? By somebody?

    🎉🎉 yippee! Project Veritas is soooo deserving of not only financial and employment losses but this public humiliation after what they did to O’Keefe. I’m confident the swamp Deep State (with traitorous insiders) was behind the attempted shut down of O’Keefe, but like with Trump, O’Keefe’s followers recognized the source and didn’t budge. He is still going strong, building a new, more dynamic organization while the Project Veritas coup started nose diving and just now face palmed. I am THRILLED at their demise! Poetic justice is a beauty to behold!

    What’s the deal with Hannah Giles? Did her and O’Keefe part ways long ago? Why is she a fraud?

    Hannah Giles is the new ‘Typhoid Mary’ of executives.

    Project Veritas had to be taken out. The truth must not be told. I wonder how much the ’employees’ got paid to sabotage the company.
