The latest offering from Project Veritas has citizen journalist extraordinaire and best selling author, James O’Keefe confronting former US Attorney Jim Letten at Tulane University, where he is now employed as a dean at the law school.
Letten resigned in disgrace when his office was found attempting to manipulate open trials by disparaging the reputation of defendants on online public forums
There is reason to believe the US Department Of Justice pressured Letten’s office back in 2010 to prosecute O’Keefe. After the incident in Sen. Landrieu’s office, in which videographers sought to ascertain whether constituent phone calls were being answered, Letten recused from the case, only to pass it to associates within the office that even included Sen. Landreiu’s brother.
When confronted, Letten only came out of his office after contacting various members of law enforcement. He then proceeded to swear at our reporters, created fictional crimes, made false statements in front of police, and even committed a minor assault. He acted with complete impunity, as the police officers patiently waited in silence until the conclusion of his tirade, only to then detain our reporters under another fictional pretense.
Letten, who is the Asst. Dean at Tulane University unleashed a torrent of verbal abuse at O’Keefe, calling him a “nasty little cowardly spud”, “asshole”, a “snail”, a horse’s ass”, and “extremist nut job”. His entire crew he called, “hobbits” and “scum”.
Watch the video and see if you can detect who the nasty (verbally abusive), cowardly (wouldn’t come out until police had arrived) asshole is here.
Letten must feel pretty confident in his job at Tulane to behave in such an outrageously belligerent manner with a journalist.
