The world is now aware that more than three dozen FBI officers conducted a multi-hour search of Trump’s Florida estate on Monday.
The FBI prohibited Trump’s attorneys from approaching the places that were searched.
“Everyone was requested to leave the premises because they wanted to be left alone without any witnesses to see what they were doing, stealing, or, ideally, ‘planting.'”
Why did they urge so STRONGLY that there be no one watching them? Wednesday, Trump posted on Truth Social.
Former President Trump posted this morning,” NOW THEY RAID MY HOME, ban my lawyers and, without any witnesses allowed, break the lock that they asked us to install on the storage area that we showed them early on, which held papers that they could have had months ago for the asking, and without the ridiculous political grandstanding of a “break-in” to a very storied, important, and high visibility place, just before the Midterm Elections. the whole world was watching as the FBI rummaged through the house, including the former First Lady’s closets (and clothing!) alone and unchecked. They even demanded that the security cameras be turned off (we refused) but there was no way of knowing if what they took was legitimate, or was there a plant?”
According to the search warrant acquired by Breitbart News, US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart approved the search warrant on August 5, 2022, but the FBI did not perform the raid until August 8.
Why was there a wait between signing the warrant and initiating the search if the case was urgent?
Regarding the secret information, former President Trump has frequently maintained that, as President with declassification authority, he declassified the records before leaving office.
Paul Sperry, an investigative journalist, tweeted on August 9:
“Uh, does DOJ understand that NARA is only temporary custodian of a president’s old White House archives until all those records are transferred back t president once his presidential library is built? That’s right, all the classified papers are returned to the former president.”
Last Thursday, the Washington Post reported a ‘leak’ from alleged government insiders claiming that the FBI searched Trump’s Florida estate for sensitive documents pertaining to nuclear weapons.
Furthermore, the FBI raid was so urgent that the US government waited more than a year and a half after Trump left office to look for ‘nuclear weapons’ data.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
If these matters were so urgent (they were not) then why did the FBI wait several days/months until they descended on Trump’s home?
Questions are being asked and some answers are coming to light.
For instance, whne publishing the search warrant, Breitbart also published the names of the FBI agents who signed off on the raid. CONTINUE READING…
