DOJ Documents Confirm Existence of Communications Between FBI & Pfizer about Project Veritas
• According to a Freedom of Information/Privacy Acts (“FOIPA”) request response issued by the Department of Justice (“DOJ”), it appears there are indeed communications between Pfizer and the FBI about Project Veritas.
• The request for communications, filed by legal advocacy nonprofit Judicial Watch, was acknowledged but denied by the DOJ which cited an exemption over law enforcement proceedings.
• “The FBI has completed its search for records responsive to your request. The material you requested is located in an investigative file which is exempt from disclosure[.]” A direct quote from DOJ FOIPA response letter.
• A separate response letter from the DOJ cited “invasions of personal privacy,” as the basis for rejecting a separate, but similar, Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) request to the FBI.
• Project Veritas, which previously broke news stories on Pfizer over the past year, was not previously aware of “law enforcement proceedings” relating to those investigations.
[New York, New York January 18, 2022] Project Veritas has obtained Freedom of Information/Privacy Acts (“FOIPA”) response letters from the DOJ which shockingly appears to confirm that there is some level of communication between federal officials at the Bureau and pharmaceutical giant Pfizer about Project Veritas.
The letters, which were originally obtained by Judicial Watch resulting from FOIA requests made by the legal watchdog group requesting communications between Pfizer and the FBI about Project Veritas cite separate reasons for rejecting the request.
While the second letter attempts to avoid acknowledging the existence of such communications by citing “an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy,” the first response letter from the Department of Justice revealed more information.
