“I have been stripped of my authority as CEO and removed from the board of directors,” O’Keefe said, “contrary to what public statements may say.”
“Our mission continues on,” O’Keefe said. “I’m not done. The mission will perhaps take on a new name, and it may no longer be called Veritas — Project Veritas…”
He added, “I’ll make sure you know how to find me…I hope to see some of you soon.”

“@JamesOKeefeIII, my friend and former boss at @Project_Veritas, just read his resignation letter to his former team and board members at their Mamaroneck, N.Y. headquarters. James will make his own way—as he always has before. @OANN,” Neil McCabe, OANN national political correspondent tweeted.
There was a push to keep O’Keefe by supporters online in recent weeks as he was under investigation about his management style, including allegations berating employees and eating a sandwich that belonged to a pregnant woman.
Donors to the organization reportedly sent a cease and desist letter to the board demanding they reinstate O’Keefe as CEO of Project Veritas.
Earlier this month, Project Veritas released a statement without mentioning O’Keefe by name.
“The board of directors and management are constantly evaluating what the best path forward is for the organization. The board and management are continuing this internal evaluation to ensure our long-term success. Project Veritas will never stop, and we will never let our supporters down,” the board stated in a post to their Twitter account.
O’Keefe started the organization in 2010 with the mission “to investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society.”
