Elon Musk reveals former Twitter employee who colluded with DHS to censor James O'Keefe now works for Google

Department of Homeland Security official Brian Scully admitted to working alongside Twitter to censor the journalist during a deposition.

Journalist James O'Keefe of O'Keefe Media Group revealed on Saturday that Twitter censored his reporting at the direction of the Department of Homeland Security before Elon Musk took over the social media platform in 2022. 

Elon Musk ultimately revealed that the responsible Twitter employee has since left the company. 

O'Keefe uploaded a video to his Twitter account which revealed Department of Homeland Security official Brian Scully admitting to working alongside Twitter to censor the journalist during a deposition.

"More Twitter Files: Here is Brian Scully, DHS official being asked about the “debunking” teams at Counter Foreign Interference Task force, trying to stop the spread of O’KEEFE video journalism," O'Keefe wrote. "In the deposition, Brian Scully confirms he was emailing TWITTER back and forth in efforts to debunk our videos."

"Twitter responds, 'Thank you so much, we've applied a label to the tweet,'" said O'Keefe.

The guerilla journalist, who was recently ousted from Project Veritas, released a series of documents that allegedly shows communications between DHS and Twitter discussing "debunking" O'Keefe's reporting, although the emails are redacted in the document.

"This is the email between Scully, and apparently those at Twitter (their emails were redacted). Maybe @elonmusk can let me know who at Twitter was emailing DHS about journalists?" O'Keefe said, calling on Elon Musk to oust the employees.

According to the document, Scully and alleged officials with Twitter discussed "debunking," otherwise known as slapping content with a "fact-check," on O'Keefe's reporting of USPS whistleblowers alleging fraudulent activity surrounding mail-in ballots during the 2020 presidential election.

"Hi Brian, have you seen // heard of any debunks of the Project Veritas USPS videos?" one email sent to Scully said.

Scully responded, "Which video? There appears to be more than one. I'm looking at USPS employee in NV, but have been told there's also a "whistleblower" in MI.

"I just checked with our teams so you don't have to spin your wheels. Doesn't look like a debunk exists yet," an alleged Twitter employee replied.

O'Keefe, who recently founded OMG Media Group, called on Twitter owner Elon Musk to help identify the Twitter employee(s) censoring content at the request of the federal government.

"Hey @elonmusk - care to identify the Twitter employee who went back and forth in emails with the 'Counter Foreign Interference Task force' at DHS about videos I produced? Twitter exec responded to DHS: 'Thank you so much, we've applied a label to the tweet'" O'Keefe wrote to Musk in a Tweet.

The Space X and Tesla CEO responded to O'Keefe and said, "That person reported to Jim Baker and left Twitter for Google in 2021."

During last year's release of the notorious "Twitter Files," journalist Matt Taibbi revealed that federal government agencies, such as the FBI, acted as a "subsidiary" for Twitter before Elon Musk purchased the platform for $44 billion.
