A prominent Republican group from New York has suspended a member of their Board of Advisors pending an investigation into whether he is the mastermind behind the ousting of James O’Keefe from Project Veritas.
New York Young Republican Club announced they have suspended Matthew Tyrmand, a member of the Project Veritas Board of Directors. According to NYYRC:
Yesterday, James O’Keefe announced that the Project Veritas Board had terminated his responsibilities. O’Keefe established Project Veritas, which he has grown into one of the nation’s greatest hard-hitting investigative media sources.
After conducting a series of interviews, the Board of Governors of the New York Young Republican Club has learned that Matthew Tyrmand, a member of our Board of Advisors, may have engineered O’Keefe’s ouster on tenuous claims of financial malfeasance.
O’Keefe is a close friend of the Club, and Tyrmand serves as a member of the Club’s Board of Advisors. Pending the outcome of an internal investigation, to be conducted by our Board of Governors, Matthew Tyrmand will be suspended from his role. We believe in free speech and transparency of operations, and the credible reports we have received require full investigation to ensure that our Members’ interests are represented appropriately.
The Club will continue to be transparent with the public as more information can be released over time.
Conservative show hosts Steve Bannon and Charlie Kirk discussed the ousting of O’Keefe with Bannon saying the board members were no longer allowed on his show. He mentioned Tyrmand by name. Watch:
As I noted on Twitter and on today’s episode of The JD Rucker Show, it seems conspicuous that all of this started happening almost immediately after the bombshells dropped by Project Veritas regarding Pfizer. Could this all be a way to take out arguably the most important investigative journalism organizations among conservatives?
James O'Keefe wasn't taken down by the board. He wasn't taken down by disgruntled employees. He wasn't taken down for buying black vehicles.
James O'Keefe was taken down because he is Project Veritas and Project Veritas exposed Pfizer.
The powers-that-be don't like exposure.

As this saga unfolds, it seems clear that Project Veritas may be done. They’ve lost tons of support and are the being scolded across the board by conservative media. Perhaps this was the plan the whole time.
