On Saturday morning, James O’Keefe was awoken to the FBI banging on his door to conduct a predawn raid at his home as a continuation of an investigation surrounding Ashley Biden’s diary. O’Keefe was thrown against a wall, handcuffed, and forced to allow the confiscation of many confidential reporter notes and source identities.
In a Fox News interview, O’Keefe described the events of this raid:
“There were 10 FBI agents with a battering ram… they turned me around, handcuffed me, and threw me against the hallway. I was partially clothed in front of my neighbors. They confiscated my phone, they raided my apartment. On my phone were many of my reporter’s notes, a lot of my sources unrelated to this story, and a lot of confidential donor information to our news organization”.
