Even the Anti-Civil Liberties Union Thinks the FBI Went Too Far With Project Veritas

Even the ACLU defends Project Veritas over government raid (reclaimthenet.org)

The ACLU released a statement criticizing the government for raiding Project Veritas founder and employees’ homes.
“Project Veritas has engaged in disgraceful deceptions, and reasonable observers might not consider their activities to be journalism at all,” begins the statement attributed to Brian Hauss, senior staff attorney with the ACLU’s Speech, Privacy, and Technology Project.

“Nevertheless, the precedent set in this case could have serious consequences for press freedom. Unless the government had good reason to believe that Project Veritas employees were directly involved in the criminal theft of the diary, it should not have subjected them to invasive searches and seizures.”

“We urge the court to appoint a special master to ensure that law enforcement officers review only those materials that were lawfully seized and that are directly relevant to a legitimate criminal investigation.”

Of course, there’s no evidence whatsoever that Project Veritas has engaged in any deceptions, certainly not “disgraceful” ones.  Of course, “deception” from the left these days means “telling facts we don’t want the public to hear”.
