James O'Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, has filed a defamation lawsuit against leftist etsbalishment "news" network CNN after an anchor falsey claimed his organization was banned by Twitter for spreading misinformation.

O'Keefe filed the suit in Georgia over comments made by CNN anchor Ana Cabrera on Twitter's crackdown to "try to stop the spread of misinformation."

Cabrera cited the suspension of Project Veritas as an "example," when they were actually banned for allegedly sharing private information, which is a policy violation.

O'Keefe pointed to tweets Cabrera posted three days prior, quoting a Twitter spokesperson who cited the information policy resulting in the ban.

He also highlighted a CNN report which correctly cited the apparent policy violation.

The tweets, O'Keefe says, prove malice on behalf of the anchor.

The suit reads:

"Project Veritas is an investigative journalism organization whose reputation depends on its ethical and transparent conduct and its production of reliable and accurate news reporting. By claiming Project Veritas was 'spreading misinformation,' CNN directly damaged and impugned Project Veritas’s reputation."

"CNN’s factual claim that Project Veritas was banned for "promoting misinformation," instead of truthful reporting of private facts, is patently and demonstrably false, and CNN maliciously made its claims with knowledge they were false or with reckless disregard for their falsity."

The lawsuit comes just a week after O'Keefe filed against Twitter over his account's suspension after the platform claimed he operated "fake accounts."

The suspension came amid an #ExposeCNN campaign which showed a CNN technical director admitting the network's “focus was to get Trump out of office.”

The individual, who Project Veritas alleges to be CNN technical director Charlie Chester, openly discusses the “propaganda” regarding President Trump's health.

“I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said, I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts’,” O’Keefe said.

"This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay," the journalist warned.

“Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me."

Donald Trump Jr. responded to Twitter’s latest crackdown against conservatives by writing on Twitter: “In case you haven’t figured out how it works by now… @CNN spreads propaganda to elect Democrats [and] then @Twitter runs interference to protect CNN.

Twitter said in a statement:

“As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts.'”
