Investigative journalist James O’Keefe is resigning as the head of Project Veritas, which he founded as an undercover journalism operation to uncover corruption in American politics.
According to a report by a former employee of Project Veritas, Neil McCabe, James O’Keefe read his resignation letter to his former team and board members at their Mamaroneck, N.Y. headquarters.

“James will make his own way—as he always has before,” McCabe added.
James O’Keefe was suspended in early February as CEO of Project Veritas. Earlier reports that he would return as CEO, based on a Project Veritas letter released to the public, proved to be unfounded.
The contents of the letter is posted below:
According to an internal message to Project Veritas’ employees sent by the organization’s executive director, Daniel Strack, O’Keefe was taking “a few weeks of well-deserved” paid time off.
Last week, a new letter was submitted to Project Veritas’ board with 25 staffers backing James O’Keefe’s return as CEO.

O’Keefe’s sudden resignation follows an internal battle between O’Keefe and members of Project Veritas’ advisery board. The battle arose in the aftermath of a highly public battle with the large pharmaceutical company Pfizer.
Project Veritas’ ‘bombshell’ video that uncovered a Pfizer executive boasting the pharmaceutical corporation was exploring mutating Covid variants in order to profit off future mRNA “vaccines” is now raising serious concerns in the halls of Congress.
The undercover video has racked up over 30 million views on Twitter:

Project Veritas announced on Thursday that the letter had prompted senators and house members to query the heads of the Food and Drug Administration, Health and Human Services, and National Institutes of Health.
