No, no it doesn't.

Nothing about investigative journalism or the resharing of public domain information breaks TOS.

It's actually potentially quite fortunate that ELD did this, because abusing the copyright claims system is a bannable offense on YouTube, and it should be really quite easy to demonstrate this. Plus, his account is now going to come under quite a heavy scrutiny from teams that investigate such things. He may have shot himself quite thoroughly in the foot.

As for TOS violations - a user who has already been banned for extreme TOS violations, attempting to scam the public, and using bots to create a new channel... now those DO break TOS violations.
