The Make America Great Again (MAGA) Inc. has questioned the timing of Donald Trump’s indictment, which occurred on the same day that House members were shown a controversial Joe Biden “bribery” memo.
They tweeted that it was no coincidence that President Trump was indicted on the same day this news broke.
“Joe Biden allegedly paid $5M by Burisma executive as part of a bribery scheme, according to FBI document.”
According to Trump’s announcement on Thursday, Jack Smith, the special counsel investigating how Trump handled classified information, has informed the former president’s attorneys that he faces charges.
Smith has failed to substantiate the allegation.
According to reports, Trump will be indicted on seven federal counts for allegedly removing classified documents from the White House when he left office.
The decision to inform Trump of the allegations was made on the same day that the House Oversight Committee was given access to an FBI report regarding a bribery allegation against Vice President Joe Biden.
According to Florida congressman Byron Donalds, the timing raises concerns.
Thursday, House Oversight Committee member Donalds, 44, was shown the FBI’s “bribery” records.
He tweeted: “On the day members of Congress learn from an FBI document linking then VP Joe Biden to receiving $5 MILLION from Burisma in a pay-for-play scheme, Biden’s DOJ announces another phony indictment of the leading candidate for the GOP Presidential nomination, Biden’s likely opponent, and the former POTUS.”
“This mob-like justice system is turning Lady Justice on its head and is the most significant threat to our democracy.”
“Stand with President Trump.”
Georgia Republican and member of the House Oversight Committee Marjorie Taylor Greene echoed Donalds’ outrage.
“Just today, I read the FD-1023 form from the FBI’s most trusted credible informant,” she tweeted.
“A detailed description of then Vice President Joe Biden getting paid $5 million to get Ukrainian Prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired for investigating Burisma. Hunter got paid too.”
“Joe Biden has classified documents everywhere. Literally on the garage floor next to the garage door that opens and closes, but the corrupt and complicit FBI and DOJ do nothing.”
“It’s shameful. Pathetic really. Ultimately the biggest hypocrisy in modern day history.”
“A complete and total failure to the American people. A stain on our nation that the FBI and DOJ are so corrupt and they don’t even hide it anymore.”
Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee exerted pressure on the FBI to release documents allegedly demonstrating Biden’s participation in a bribery conspiracy while serving as vice president. The FBI ‘caved’ to their demands.
The agreement ended an impasse that began on May 3 after FBI Director Christopher Wray received a subpoena to turn over the document.
The committee was granted permission to begin examining the file on Thursday, but only in a SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) and behind closed doors.
Wray initially refused to share the unverified information with anyone, with the exception of the committee chair, James Comer, and the leading Democrat, Jamie Raskin.
When Comer emerged from scrutinizing the document and indicated it was unsettling, Raskin claimed it was unimportant.
