The Daily Beast reports:
Blackwater founder Erik Prince arranged for political activist James O’Keefe’s conservative group Project Veritas to receive more than one round of “training in intelligence and elicitation techniques,” The Intercept reports.
In 2016, the self-styled “guerrilla journalist” group reportedly got lessons from a retired military intelligence operative. The training lasted several weeks and ended with the operative, Euripides Rubio Jr., reportedly quitting because the group “wasn’t capable of learning.”
O’Keefe appeared on JMG in late 2017 when he flamed out in an attempt to sting the Washington Post with a fake Roy Moore accuser. In a book published last year, O’Keefe claimed that Trump repeatedly asked him to “get inside” Columbia University and steal Obama’s student records.
