CNN said it is involving "law enforcement" after James O'Keefe, the founder of the right-wing group Project Veritas, crashed a morning editorial call with CNN President Jeff Zucker and said Project Veritas would be releasing tapes from previously recorded phone calls.

"Legal experts say this may be a felony. We've referred it to law enforcement," the CNN PR account tweeted on Tuesday in response to a video of the call O'Keefe posted on Twitter.

In the video, O'Keefe can be seen unmuting himself on a phone and telling Zucker, "We've been listening to your CNN calls for basically two months and recording everything. Just wanted to ask you some questions, if you have a minute. Do you still feel you are the most trusted name in news? Because I have to say from what I've been hearing on these phone calls, I don't know about that. I mean, we've got a lot of recordings that indicate you're not really that independent of a journalist."
