On Wednesday, O’Keefe Media Group released part one of their series titled “Exposing the CIA.” In this installment, a project manager working in cyber operations, Amjad Fseisi, revealed to OMG’s undercover journalist that the Director of the CIA deliberately withheld information from President Trump.

Fseisi also revealed that the CIA conducted surveillance on Trump’s presidency and continues to monitor him to this day.

According to Fseisi, there was a collective decision among agencies to withhold information from Trump, as he stated, “So the agencies kind of, like, all got together and said, we’re not gonna tell Trump…Director of the CIA would keep [information from Trump…”

Furthermore, Fseisi labeled Trump as a “Russian asset,” claiming, “He’s owned by the f*cking Russians,” during his conversation with the undercover journalist.

Per James O’Keefe:

Amjad reveals to OMG’s Undercover American Swiper that intel agencies not only kept intelligence information from a sitting United States President and Commander-In-Chief, they also used FISA to spy on President Trump and his team and are still monitoring President Trump according to Amjad who says, “We monitor everything.” Amjad adds “we also have people that monitor his ex-wife. He likes to use burner phones” – information only an insider with access to highly sensitive information would state.

“We steal it [information]” and “We hack other countries just like that,” Amjad, who states he currently works on the CIA’s China Mission Center, explains how intel agencies obtain information. He also describes a broken intelligence system where “We don’t share information across agencies” because the CIA is “very reluctant” to share information with the “careless” NSA.

O’Keefe Media Group’s bombshell undercover footage supports earlier reports by investigative journalists Michael Shellenberger, Matt Taibbi, and Alex Gutentag that revealed how the American intelligence community illegally ran a spy operation against then-candidate Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016 and illegally acquired intelligence that was later used to justify the Federal Bureau of Investigation (@FBI) official probe, “Crossfire Hurricane,” which in turn led to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that ultimately did not find evidence of Russia collusion by the 2016 Trump campaign.

Contractors like Fseisi hold the duty to withhold sharing confidential or national security information. In denying his statements, Fseisi may have realized he could be held liable for violating internal agency provisions and federal laws like the Executive Agency ethics provisions, which restrict what he may share with others outside of his contracted-to agency. Additionally, any government worker or agency head who withheld information from a superior (i.e. President Trump) may violate: (a) obstruction of justice by deception (18 USC 1512); (b) conspiracy to obstruct (18 USC 371); and false statements (18 USC 1001). Agency regulations may also provide offenses related to insubordination, reflecting poorly on the agency in public, or misrepresentation or dishonesty.

When James O’Keefe caught up with Amjad Fseisi on the streets of Washington, D.C., Fseisi could not tell O’Keefe whether he had top secret clearance, denied making statements clearly caught on camera, and would not even confirm it was him on the video saying only “It looks like me.” When asked directly if he works at the CIA, Fseisi said, “I can’t tell you that.”


The CIA official was fired following the release of O’Keefe’s undercover video.

“These claims about CIA are absolutely false and ridiculous. CIA is a resolutely apolitical institution that provides intelligence support to policymakers including the President of the United States, irrespective of who occupies the office. We are a foreign intelligence focused Agency and do not monitor the former President. The individual making these allegations is a former contractor who does not represent CIA.”

In the video which was taken last week, the CIA official waves his intelligence community green badge. Green Badges are specifically hired for those contracted by the agency. Kash Patel, former Deputy Director of National Intelligence, said “An individual possessing a contractor Green badge is only allowed to lawfully possess it while official employed as a contractor to the intelligence community. Upon any termination, credentials are returned to the home agency and destroyed immediately.”

Conservative Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is taking action on the concerning report by James O’Keefe’s OMG Media Group. Gaetz has formally called on the Weaponization Subcommittee to launch an immediate investigation into the matter.

In a tweet, Gaetz shared a copy of the letter he sent to Rep. Jim Jordan, the Chair of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. Gaetz emphasized the urgency of the situation, stating that the recently released undercover video contains evidence suggesting that American intelligence agencies withheld intelligence from President Donald Trump both before and during his presidency. Additionally, Gaetz highlighted concerns regarding the use of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) authorities to spy on President Trump.
