Theft of Ashley Biden’s Diary: Two People Plead Guilty to Stealing and Selling Biden’s Assets to Project Veritas

Aimee Harris and Robert Kurlander pleaded guilty to stealing Biden’s assets and selling them to the conservative media group for $40,000, court documents show.

In September 2020, Harris moved into a house in Delray Beach, Florida, where current President Joe Biden’s daughter had recently lived and temporarily stored personal effects. Harris enlisted Kurlander’s help in selling Biden’s valuables to the highest bidder, according to criminal intel.

The couple attended a Donald Trump fundraiser on September 6, 2020, hoping to hold a sale for the then-president’s campaign.

According to documents filed Thursday, Kurlander texted Harris after the event saying, “[Trump] the campaign cannot use it. They want it to go to the FBI. There’s no way [Trump] can use this. We must do otherwise…”

A few days later, they sent photos of some of Biden’s belongings to Project Veritas. The organization paid for airfare, hotel and car service for the couple to transport the property from Florida to New York, according to court documents.

Kurlander acknowledged the crime in a text to Harris, saying Project Veritas is in a “sketchy business,” according to court documents.

“They are in a sketchy business and here they are taking what is literally a stolen diary and information and trying to make a story that will ruin [Ashley Biden’s] life and try to effect the election. [Ashley Biden] can easily think that all his stuff is there and not care. . we have to tread even more carefully and we have to do this stuff and if anything worthwhile has to be handed over and MUST be out of this house,” the text message read.

Harris took more of Biden’s property from the house after they met in New York at the request of Project Veritas, according to court documents. A Project Veritas employee then traveled to Florida to pick up the extra items and shipped them back to New York, according to court documents.

No one from Project Veritas has been publicly charged in connection with the alleged scheme.

Harris and Kurlander pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property, which carries a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison, according to sentencing guidelines, but a judge will decide. ultimately their pain. They are not being held, pending sentencing later this year.

Harris “has accepted responsibility for what happened and she looks forward to moving on with her life,” her attorney Sanford Talkin told CNN.

CNN contacted an attorney for Kurlander but did not immediately respond.

In a Thursday statement about the guilty pleas, Project Veritas said gathering information from its employees was “ethical and lawful,” adding, “Lawful receipt by a journalist of subsequently alleged stolen material is routine. , common and protected by the First Amendment. .”

CNN has reached out to Biden’s representatives for comment.
