I can’t tell you how disgusted I am about what’ happening at Project Veritas. It sounds to me like the establishment is trying to take down one of our most effective tools against the Deep State, right after Pfizer was exposed. There are reports emerging that a couple of people are at the center of this coup. One man, an establishment “DeSantis 2024” guy is supposedly a key player at the center of all of this. His name is Matt Tyrmand and he’s a board member at Project Veritas. National File reporter Patrick Howley says he’s bad news, and has had many run-ins with him throughout his career. Howley believes Tyrman is one of the current board members leading the coup against James from the inside.
Patrick Howley revealed today that Matthew Tyrmand, Project Veritas Board Director and the leader of the coup against James O’Keefe, tried to get Howley to hand over control of one of his projects to him in the past. https://t.co/7TIF1wIGJu

Tyrmand is another “establishment” DeSantis guy. All of these “DeSantis 2024” supporters have a lot in common: they don’t like Trump. They guy sitting next to him is John Cardillo, who was a Trump supporter up until recently. Now he sits online all day bashing Trump and praising DeSantis.
Tyrmand tells the FL audience last night that Donald Trump WAS a good president, but that he does not belong in the White House.
Tyrmand also said that if he wins, Trump will be the weakest President ever in history bc he would be lame duck starting on day 1. @MatthewTyrmand pic.twitter.com/sP4zjW8qRo

And then there’s the second alleged “establishment” coup operator. His name is Barry Hinckley, and according to the story, he and O’Keefe got into a huge fight and James fired him and another man by the name of Tom O’Hara (CFO) for insubordination.
Anonymous reporter “Amuse” shared details on the story:
“Four months ago Project Veritas hired 56-year-old Barry Hinckley to serve as Chief Strategy Officer. Hinckley wrote an email to PV staff claiming he had “stood up to a bully” and had lost his job as a result.”
Barry Hinckley is the heir to the Hinckley Yachts family, a failed Senate candidate from Rhode Island, and CEO of a failed company that called itself the Airbnb of private house parties. Why did he attack @JamesOKeefeIII in just four months?
Barry Hinckley recruited 11 other @Project_Veritas employees to sign a letter declaring @JamesOKeefeIII a “power-drunk tyrant” which he presumably sent to PV’s board of directors in an effort to oust him from the company.
The decision to put @JamesOKeefeIII on paid leave seems to have been Daniel Strack, PV’s Executive Director. Strack was unceremoniously pushed out of Goldman Sachs as an MD after just 3 years.

And the letter, signed by 16 employees, who want to oust James O’Keefe, was made public.
The Post Millennial reported that in the letter, the 16 staffers, listed as Michael Villani, Eric Spracklen, Mario Balaban, Jake Mantel, Patrick Van Duyne, Sal Gueli Journalists: Arden Young, Preston Scagnelli, Bobby Harr (Lithium), Bethany Rolando, Joanne Sumner, Gillian Pietrowski, Jonathan Bailey, Joshua Hughes, Nick Mehaj, and Angelo Martinez, say that “James has become a power drunk tyrant and he is exactly who he pontificates on who we should be exposing.”
Other statements also site professional relationships that apparently soured between O’Keefe and others, including an instance where O’Keefe called Spencer Meads a “pussy.”
“James went as far as to call Spencer a pussy in Vegas, and Spencer heard him say it. Both of these guys were mission driven and suffered through it. They were raided and James still called Spencer that name – he never forgave them for making a decision to leave for their own mental wellbeing,” the letter reads.
Issues cited include that “airing grievances” has led to termination, which hs prevented the undersigned from previously speaking up. Lack of transparency in decision making was a concern, as well we O’Keefe being difficult to work with, belligerant, and mean, with “bullying” listed as a concern.
Others took issue with O’Keefe’s forray into musical theater, saying “All the theatre stuff and how that is handled makes me very uneasy. I understand it is rationalized as “raising awareness of our brand,” but the cost of that both in a financial sense as well as personnel and resources, becomes priority over why donors actually give us money, which is to conduct undercover investigations which expose waste fraud and abuse. In the end, we are in a deficit now, our fans and potential fans beyond do not respond positively to all of that stuff because all they want is for us to carry out the mission.”
Project Veritas has been hemmoraging followers in the wake of the news that its creator and founder may be iced out, with staff and board attempting to continue without the man who made the company what it is.
The letter references Barry Hinckley, who was fired by O’Keefe. A thread emerged on Twitter about Hinckley, alleging that he is “desperate for fame and fortune,” and had “recruited 11 other @Project_Veritas employees to sign a letter declaring @JamesOKeefeIII a ‘power-drunk tyrant’ which he presumably sent to PV’s board of directors in an effort to oust him from the company.”
It sounds like James had a lot of unsavory “establishment” types in very high places at his company.
Why on earth did a man who was known for blowing the lid off others, succumb to this plot?
