But another conservative news site did publish the full 112-page diary, on Oct.
Project Veritas did not publish the diary, as founder James O'Keefe said in a video released Friday that the group could not confirm the authenticity of the diary, its belonging to Ashley Biden or that the contents of the diary were truthful.
O'Keefe said that he did not know who had leaked the raid to the New York Times.
The Times called the video 'deceptive' and full of 'misinformation.
The website claimed to have obtained the diary from a whistleblower who worked for a media organization that had declined to publish the story.
O'Keefe said that the tipsters said they were shopping it around to other outlets to see who would offer money for it.
Ashley Biden, 40, is the only daughter of Joe and Jill Biden O'Keefe said Project Veritas had been offered the diary by tipsters who said that the then-Democratic candidate's daughter left it in a room where she stayed and the tipsters stayed after she departed.
O'Keefe then claimed that once they got ahold of the journal, they attempted to return it to an attorney representing Ashley.
