Remember that bizarre news story about Joe Biden showering with his daughter?
Turns out, it looks like it was true.
Two Florida residents have pleaded guilty to stealing the diary of Ashley Biden, President Joe Biden's youngest daughter, and then selling it to right-wing activist group Project Veritas, the Justice Department announced Thursday.
Aimee Harris, 40, and Robert Kurlander, 58, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property involving the theft of personal belongings of an immediate family member of a then-former government official for taking several items belonging to Ashley Biden in September 2020. The charge carries a maximum of five years in prison.
Kurlander has also agreed to cooperate with the government.
Though Ashley Biden, 41, is not named in the court documents, a source familiar with the case confirmed they were her belongings.
"Harris and Kurlander stole personal property from an immediate family member of a candidate for national political office," U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said in a statement. "They sold the property to an organization in New York for $40,000 and even returned to take more of the victim’s property when asked to do so."
So if the diary is real, that means the content of the diary is probably also real:
According to the diary, Ashley wrote that her father and our president took showers with her when she was young girl, fueling her sex-addiction.
Inside a January 2019 diary entry, she wrote “I remember having sex with friends @ a young age; showers w/ my dad.”
When the journal was reported missing, Project Veritas founder James O’ Keefe’s home was raided by police officials, claiming that he had stolen Ashley’s diary.
On Thursday, the journalism organization released a statement about the case saying “a journalist’s lawful receipt of material later alleged to be stolen is routine, commonplace and protected by the First Amendment.”
