The Federal Bureau of Investigation has conducted two searches at the homes of people tied to the right-wing activist group Project Veritas, as part of an investigation into the circumstances surrounding a diary reportedly belonging to President Biden’s daughter, the contents of which became public just before the 2020 election, according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

The searches, first reported by the New York Times, took place Thursday, one at an apartment on East 35th Street in New York City and another at a home in Mamaroneck, N.Y., the FBI confirmed Friday.

James O’Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, also released a lengthy video Friday railing against the searches, saying he had “awoke to the news that apartments and homes of Project Veritas journalists, or former journalists, had been raided by FBI agents.”
