Prosecutors with the Department of Justice are seeking a prison sentence for Aimee Harris, involved in the theft and subsequent sale of a diary belonging to Ashley Biden, the president’s daughter, to media outlet Project Veritas.

The sentencing recommendation for Harris has been revised by prosecutors to four to ten months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release. This adjustment comes after Harris postponed her sentencing hearing twelve times, often providing reasons deemed inadequate by the prosecution. The excuses ranged from childcare issues, which were later found to be baseless, to unverified illness claims.

In their letter to Judge Laura Swain, federal prosecutors argued that Harris has repeatedly used tactics to delay the proceedings. This includes misleading the court with false information to justify unjust delays, not showing up when required, and not following court orders to share or provide specific information. Harris, along with her accomplice Robert Kurlander, have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property.

In the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, Harris and Kurlander managed to steal the diary containing personal reflections, as well as tax records, a cellphone, and family photographs from Biden’s Florida residence. The duo later sold these items to Project Veritas, receiving $20,000 each in exchange.

Project Veritas, a New York-based organization known for its undercover operations, acquired the diary and additional items but ultimately refrained from publishing its contents due to “verification concerns.” This incident led to federal raids on properties associated with the media outlet and its founder, James O’Keefe, in November. Despite the lack of publication by Project Veritas, the diary’s contents were later made public by another website.
