The FBI raided the Mar a Lago home of Donald Trump this morning. democrats are frothing in excitement over the news, but none seem to have a grasp on the facts. The raid is said to have to do with classified documents allegedly removed from the White House. The warrant was approved by Merrick Garland, who managed to find time to do this when he’s been so busy threatening school child mothers.
Here’s where this goes off into the weeds:
The two sources, both briefed on the raid, said the agents who executed the search were from the Washington Field Office, the same office that whistleblowers recently complained to Sen. Charles Grassley was involved in political meddling into investigations involving Trump and Hunter Biden.
That same DC Field Office has been accused of abuse of power by whistleblowers.
The documents sought in the raid were already marked declassified because Trump declassified them.
Kash Patel, a former top Trump administration official, told Breitbart News on Wednesday that a report claiming classified materials were found at Mar-a-Lago is misleading and that the documents were actually already declassified by then-President Donald Trump, but the classification markings had not been updated.
On Hannity John Solomon posited a scenario-
- The very same thing happened in 2015 when Hillary Clinton took classified materials with her when she left the obama regime but it’s being handled very, very differently
The raid, if accurately described by the sources, stands in stark contrast to how the FBI dealt with similar allegations of mishandled classified emails by Hillary Clinton. In that case, the FBI worked through her lawyer, David Kendall, and even allowed Kendall to hold onto alleged classified materials inside a specialized safe in his office rather than conduct a raid.
But then, we know that a two-tiered justice system has been established in this country- one for the left and a much harsher one for the right.
- There is great curiosity as to why a Grand Jury subpoena wasn’t presented instead of a raid
- One week ago Judicial Watch sued to have these very documents released:
The conservative watchdog Judicial Watch has sued the Justice Department to compel the release of “smoking gun” documents former President Donald Trump declassified and ordered release that detail misconduct in the FBI’s discredited Russia collusion investigation.
The suit was filed one week ago and announced today. Quite the coincidence.
- The raid was conducted by the very office that whistleblowers said were involved in political tampering, according to Chuck Grassley. Solomon said the agent in charge opened an investigation into Trump without predicate and closed downan investigation into Hunter Biden.
This might seem a good time for the Director of the FBI to take a powder, which he did.
- Solomon said that the Assistant Special Agent in Charge from the DC Field Office was removed by Wray but the FBI still went on to conduct the raid.
- The President is the ultimate decider on what is declassified or not, so Trump could not possess classified material if he already declassified it.
Alan Dershowitz tonight:
“The raid is supposed to be a last resort,” he said. “But this administration has used the weaponization of the justice system against its political enemies. It has arrested people, denied them bail, put them in handcuffs – used all kinds of techniques that are not usually applied to American citizens. I just hope this raid has the justification. If it doesn’t have the justification, the materials seized in it will be suppressed.”
“This is improper, and this is misconduct,” Dershowitz added. “We have to find out what the facts are. But we have to make sure the shoe fits on the other foot – that we want to make sure what is being one here is something that Democrats would not oppose if it were being done to Democratic operatives, as well.”
The White House claims it had no advance warning- which is utterly unbelievable. Twitter is awash is all kinds of wild speculation based on nothing but hatred, which is amusing as they haven’t the first damned idea what they’re talking about.
A pre-dawn raid on the home of a former President ninety days before midterm elections- a likely candidate for President in 2024. This is blatant abuse of power by a corrupt FBI, a corrupt DOJ and the corrupt Biden regime. The FBI already has falsified FISA warrants. Does anyone believe it took 18 months to get to this point? And now we’re getting another 87,000 IRS agents? It doesn’t get any worse.
I think there’s something in documents that Biden’s Fourth Reich desperately wants not to see the light of day- proof of FBI misconduct. The Biden regime is the most corrupt in the history of this country.
This is likely going to blow up in the faces of the left. Worse for them, they may have just locked something up, but not Donald Trump.
They may have locked up his reelection.
