Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett slams Biden admin for using FBI to find daughter’s diary

In a shocking development, the FBI raided the residence of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe’s home on Saturday in search of a diary that apparently belongs to Ashley Biden, the daughter of President Joe Biden.

According to the New York Post, the raid included visits to other journalists who work for the conservative watchdog outfit. The diary in question was reportedly given to Project Veritas before the 2020 election, but due to a lack of being able to authenticate the diary, the watchdog group declined to publish the diary, although another lesser-known outlet did upload some of the pages at the time.

How the diary was obtained and who might have it is a concern for some, however, Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett took issue with the FBI getting involved in such a case, which Jarrett argued is a state matter, at most.

“Let’s assume it’s a theft or a burglary. That’s not a federal crime! This would be a state crime,” Jarrett said in a recent interview with Fox’s Sean Hannity.

He added that such a matter “should have been handed off to state authorities, because there’s an enormous conflict of interest,” pointing out the obvious conflict of interest, given that Biden’s DOJ oversees the FBI and that it was his daughter’s property.

Jarrett, a legal analyst, and a lawyer himself, also noted that the only way a journalist can be found in violation of the law is if the journalist stole the diary or was involved in the theft of the diary. O’Keefe was provided the diary by an unnamed source who claim they found it at a residence where Ashley Biden used to live.

The legal analyst believes, in his opinion, that the FBI’s involvement, especially given Project Veritas’ conservative leanings, is nothing more than “political targeting,” adding that he found the entire ordeal “deeply troubling.”

Only time will tell what becomes of the case, but it’s certainly bizarre — and frightening — that the FBI would involve itself in a case that otherwise would belong to a much lower-level law enforcement jurisdiction. Such a response raises questions of what, exactly, the diary contains.
