Ex-Staffer Slams James O’Keefe: He Crossed A Line With Vile ‘Kill Cops’ Stunt

In a Jan. 9 email addressed to Valdes, O’Keefe, and other top Project Veritas employees, the undercover operative, Mohammed Alhomsi, apparently declined to carry out the assignment. The email cited both legal concerns and concerns about the language of the script in turning down the project. That email was among those provided to TPM by Valdes’s attorney.

“I will not be able to say anything that’s not the truth to the best of my knowledge. Especially when it comes to the way I was treated as a Muslim in the United States,” Alhomsi wrote, according to a copy of the email. “And I will not say words that will jeopardize my entity, especially when they involve an illegal act of murdering police.”

Valdes then reminded Alhomsi that the assignment wasn’t different from previous projects where the operative had put on a ruse. But he didn’t press the issue further, writing that “we respect your position and don’t want you to be uncomfortable.”

“It struck a nerve with me as well,” Valdes told TPM. “I have two brothers that are retired NYPD. Myself, I served as a volunteer police officer in Essex County, N.J. I understood it, and I was told, ‘Just make it happen.’ I refused.”

For that, Valdes said, he was called into O’Keefe’s office a half hour later and fired from the organization. As the New York Post first reported, Valdes is now planning to sue Project Veritas and O’Keefe for wrongful termination.
