Project Veritas is launching a new platform that welcomes underground information from whistleblowers while ensuring their confidentiality.

The non-profit said their new platform, dubbed “Veritas Leaks,” will be ready to hear from insiders in big tech, major media, and what’s known as the “Deep State“—a group of career politicians, also referred to as the “permanent government,” who are pushing an agenda that goes against the Constitution and U.S. law. Veritas is known for exposing corruption through undercover journalism.

Project Veritas Communications director Stephen Gordon told The Epoch Times the new project will help keep Americans informed of such high-level corruption.

“The ‘Deep State’ has indeed been hidden from public view—hence their nickname,” Gordon said via email on Aug 17. “One of our goals is to shine a media spotlight on them so the actions of our government are exposed to the people from whom they derive their power.”

To quell confidentiality fears, Veritas said there will be an entire team “dedicated” to protecting the identities and anonymity of sources. They said they will expose the “greatest threats” facing the United States including corruption, hypocrisy, and bias at the highest levels.

The company’s founder and president, James O’Keefe, went further in describing their protections.

“I will go to jail to protect a source’s identity,” O’Keefe said in a statement. “Security is our paramount concern. The goal is for our combined efforts to expose corruption to have a positive impact while protecting the identities of highly-placed informants.”

Gordon said there not many who are exposing the “people near to and within the federal government who are undermining our national policies, the law, and the Constitution of the United States.”

“Since the mainstream media won’t do it, it falls upon people like us to keep the American public informed,” he said.

The newly established team will directly work with insiders who contact Veritas and will ensure all transferred information is secure and safeguarded. The team will monitor incoming communications on a variety of encrypted messaging applications.
