Ashley Biden’s Diary Was Stolen , by 2 Florida Residents.
NBC News reports that on Aug.
25, Aimee Harris and Robert Kurlander pleaded guilty to stealing the president's daughter's diary.
The theft occurred at a home in Delray Beach.
The thieves also admitted to selling the diary to Project Veritas for $40,000.
NBC News reports Harris was temporarily living at the home where the diary and other items were found.
Tax records and a cellphone were reportedly among some of the other belongings.
The pair reportedly first tried to give the stolen items to the Trump campaign, but it refused the offer and advised turning the items over to the FBI.
Project Veritas accepted the items for $40,000 and deemed the transaction "ethical and legal.".
A journalist’s lawful receipt of material later alleged to be stolen is routine, commonplace, and protected by the First Amendment, Project Veritas, via statement.
Ultimately, Project Veritas decided not to publish the diary and turned it over to law enforcement.
At the end of the day, we made the ethical decision that because, in part, we could not determine if the diary was real, if the diary in fact belonged to Ashley Biden, or if the contents of the diary occurred, we could not publish the diary and any part thereof, James O'Keefe, Project Veritas CEO, via statement
