CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): So there's going be more and more information that will soon be made public, but let me share what is already public, therefore, I'm not violating information. James is no longer at Project Veritas. We will soon learn whether or not he has resigned or whether or not he was fired or terminated by the board. That distinction is actually very important, but that we are going to learn that together as more and more information comes.
Here's the essence of it. Here's something I want to communicate. We need Project Veritas, but we need James O'Keefe more. There is no Project Veritas without James O'Keefe, period. Now, some people say, well, Charlie can Project Veritas continue their great work? Maybe, maybe not. That's not the point. There's a couple angles I want to explore with you here, and then we'll get back to Ukraine. I'm sorry, we took a complete detour today, but I think it's necessary. And I think many of you agree because O'Keefe has just been a phenomenal hero for our movement repeatedly. He dug up so much stuff. He shined a light on the darkness.
So a couple thoughts. We need James O'Keefe. And I refuse to believe, unless there was a felony that was committed – which I have zero evidence, by the way. And I asked, I said, is there something where we're all gonna look like idiots for defending James O'Keefe? Nope, nope, nope, nope.
Outside of that, well, he was cruel. Well, he was mean or he had a bunch of his staff go to one of his dancing performances of Oklahoma. So what? That's really – look, when you're dealing with somebody as impactful, as effective, as hardworking as James O'Keefe, the standard and or the bar to remove such an individual needs to be high.
It would be one thing if O'Keefe was just running Project Veritas and they weren't getting wins. The most successful story in Project Veritas history was the Pfizer story and four days later an emergency board meeting was called and all the stuff starts to come. And maybe those two things are unrelated, but that might not be it.
This is a shame and I'm not going to lay off of this. We're not going to spend the whole show talking about this. But I encourage you the audience, you the grassroots to support James in whatever he's doing and to take a moment and get mad about this because we have way too many demons. Too many enemies, too many bad guys to fight to allow complaints about James' tone or he was mean or he was harsh – his eccentricities – to allow us to put James O'Keefe into exile and or remove him.
