More than 3 dozen federal agents and at least 3 DOJ attorneys from Merrick Garland’s corrupt “Justice Department” descended on Trump’s Florida residence, Mar-a-Lago. According to the Associated Press, FBI agents were looking for classified documents that Trump may have taken from the White House while he was president, however it is obvious to most that this FBI raid was a desperate attempt to stop Trump from running for president again.
Lara Trump argued the FBI’s raid of the former president’s home was an attempt to derail his 2024 bid for the presidency which “he’s going to announce any day.”
“This is about weaponizing the justice system, as it has been so many times in the past against somebody who you politically do not like,” she admonished in an appearance on the Fox News Channel. “They detest Donald Trump, not just on the Democrat side, but the general establishment, because he’s not one of them, because he doesn’t play their game. They are terrified. He’s going to announce any day that he’s running for president in 2024. And this is a very convenient way to just throw a little more mud on Donald Trump as though they haven’t already done enough.
“Think about this. If this is what they’re able to do to the former president of the United States, think about what they could do to you, to anybody in America. The bottom line here is that these documents that have been in question have been, everybody’s been cooperating,” she continued. “Everybody from my father-in-law’s team has been cooperating with the FBI with any authority that asks for anything up until now and there was no need to make such a big scene, to do something this insane, quite frankly, to a former president. But I think everybody clearly knows, Will, what is going on here. This is about weaponizing the justice system, as it has been so many times in the past against somebody who you politically do not like.”
According to Paul Sperry, with a tweet that got him banned from the platform for a 2nd time, the FBI agents spent 9 hours looking for details President Trump took with him on the Crossfire Hurricane FBI spying scandal.
Investigators reportedly met back in June w Trump & his lawyers in Mar-a-Lago storage rm to survey docs & things seemed copasetic but then FBI raids weeks later. Speculation on Hill FBI had PERSONAL stake & searching for classified docs related to its #Spygate scandal.
Sperry also tweeted a list of “conflicted” DOJ officials who were “briefed on the Mar-a-Lago raid”, and noted that “CNN is admonishing reporters not to call the FBI raid of Trump’s home a “raid,” but instead to term it as a “judge-approved search.” He also tweeted: “Funny, don’t remember the FBI raiding Chappaqua or Whitehaven to find the 33,000 potentially classified documents Hillary Clinton deleted,” adding “And she was just a former secretary of state, not a former president.”
President Trump shared on Friday that:
President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, much of them classified. How many of them pertained to nuclear? Word is, lots!”
We know Obama kept classified documents when he left the White House because the NSC wouldn’t fulfill a request to turn over Susan Rice’s unmasking documents that were moved to Obama’s library. The fact that they could not be easily obtained indicates they were classified.
President Trump was not in Florida at the time of the raid, but released a statement:
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” President Trump said in a statement. “After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”
“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections. Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States,” he added.
Sean Langille: A source familiar tells Brooke Singman that FBI agents went to Mar-a-Lago and looked in every single office, safe, and grabbed documents and boxes without going through them on the property. The source said they took boxes and documents to go through later, once they left Mar-a-lago
The FBI “was not being judicious” about what they took. They were there to manufacture a crime.
According to Eric Trump, the safe breached by the FBI was empty.

Judge Bruce E. Reinhart, who used to work for Jeffrey Epstein, from the Southern District of Florida reportedly signed off on the warrant to raid President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago. Reinhart was elevated to magistrate judge in 2018 after 10 years in private practice. Months after his appointment, the Miami Herald reported that he had represented several of Epstein’s employees in connection with the sex trafficking investigation against the financier. According to the paper, Reinhart resigned from the South Florida US Attorney’s Office effective on New Year’s Day 2008 and went to work for Epstein’s workers the following day.
Eric Trump said that the FBI refused to give Trump’s lawyer, Christina Bobb, a copy of the search warrant but “showed it to her from about 10 feet away,” DailyMail.com reported. He also said he would be “thrilled” to find out if there was a valid reason for the search. Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch immediately requested a copy of the warrant to raid President Trump’s home.

According to Trump attorney Christina Bobb, who was onsite at Trump’s residence Mar-a-Lago during the raid:
“It was very, I would say, thin. And as you can tell from public records, the affidavit, the supporting documentation of what the probable cause was to obtain the warrant has been sealed,” Bobb continued… …“So we’re not allowed to see that. We have to go to court to request the judge to release that which, you know, may or may not happen. So we don’t know what the probable cause is, why they were allowed to search, but they did,” she reported.
“It doesn’t really make any sense. And the same thing with any potential classified information, which I don’t believe there was any down there. We had done a search of it before and didn’t find anything noteworthy yet. I’m sure that they’re claiming that there was something terribly egregious, that a grave matter of national security. But we’ll find out,” Bobb said.
She added that she did not believe the FBI would go to any trouble to plant evidence, that instead, the bureau would “just make stuff up.”
According to John Solomon at Just the News, Trump received a grand jury subpoena for classified documents on June 3rd and fully cooperated with federal agents. John Solomon reported that Trump was cooperative with the federal agents and even added an extra padlock to secure the documents in his private storage locker at his Mar-a-Lago residence.
“In early June, the DOJ and FBI asked my legal representatives to put an extra lock on the door leading to the place where boxes were stored in Mar-a-Lago – We agreed. They were shown the secured area, and the boxes themselves. Then on Monday, without notification or warning, an army of agents broke into Mar-a-Lago, went to the same storage area, and ripped open the lock that they had asked to be installed. A surprise attack, POLITICS, and all the while our Country is going to HELL!” Trump posted to Truth Social.
In an interview with DailyMail.com, Eric Trump said that because staff refused to turn off the surveillance cameras at the request of the FBI, the Mar-a-Lago cameras captured agents raiding areas that they weren’t authorized to – like Melania’s closet.
A plain-clothed Secret Service agent with his weapon — an automatic machine gun — paraded outside Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. The dirty FBI forced Trump attorneys to sit outside in the 91 degree heat and would not allow them to observe them as they ransacked the historic home.
Bernard Kerik went on Newsmax that night and gave this dire warning: Assassination is next if the FBI cannot stop him as the Democrats and their hatchetmen have done everything they can to stop this man.
‘This is an abomination. You have the sitting President of the United States, Joe Biden, throught his Justice Department, through his FBI, conducting a raid on the person who’s presumed to be his opponent in the next election and also the 45th President of the United States…”
“It is risible that this would be purportedly done in the name of document preservation when Hillary Clinton used an off-book server for YEARS to conduct classified state business…that has never been investigated.”
Hillary Clinton is famous for repeatedly flaunting the law, deleting evidence, and abusing the legal system and getting away with it. Following the FBI raid Hillary Clinton flaunted her lawlessness and introduced new Swag merchandise for her supporters that same evening. The hat reads, “But her emails,” in reference to the 30,000 emails she illegally deleted from her server and got away with. Historically, communists always delight in flaunting their power.
Miller says on what must be done is a full-scale change in the US House of Representatives.
that they will have unquestioned ability to not only subpeona but to impeach any and every official who was involved in wrong doing both current and past.”
Just hours after Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida was raided by the FBI, the former president posted his eerie new ad on his social media platform late Monday night warning America is in decline and “a failing nation.”
Following the news of the raid the leftist pundits wailed in delight. They cheer the collapse of the republic and the birth of the new regime. Power is their only concern. See Mornings with Maria video at TGP and other gloating HERE.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Countless times we have examples of Democrats flouting the law and abusing power with no recourse, including Hunter Biden. Democrats continually weaponize the bureaucracy against Republicans. This raid is outrageous.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also warned Garland to ”clear your calendar” as Republicans vowed to investigate the Justice Department and the FBI over the Trump raid if the party wins back the chamber in November. McCarthy, like Lindsey Graham’s promises to get to the bottom of the impeachment hoax, will do nothing. They are establishment RINO’s.
- “Leader” McConnell did not post ANY comment on Twitter regarding the raid.
- Senate Democrats did not post a response to the raid on Twitter.
- House Republicans reposted Kevin McCarthy’s empty promise.
Hillary Clinton attorney and fervent protector of election fraud, Marc Elias shared on Twitter the corrupt Deep State’s goal in raiding President Trump’s house. Elias believes a hidden law applies to President Trump that will be used to prevent him from running for President.
The media is missing the really, really big reason why the raid today is a potential blockbuster in American politics.👇 pic.twitter.com/3BdI9NA9Az

Elias thinks the application of the BS law to President Trump will be fully litigated and that is a good thing for Democrats because it will give the corrupt media a vehicle to hammer President Trump with and will cost President Trump to defend.
No, I was more measured. I acknowledged that there would undoubtably be a constitutional challenge to the application of this law to a president. One can speculate how it would turn out, but it is unprecedented and would be fully litigated. As I said, it would be a “blockbuster.” https://t.co/88MXAwt766

Elias then tweeted that he believes the raid on the President’s house is another vehicle to harass President Trump.
A anonymous legal expert is quoted about the likely political impact on the outcome of the 2024 election.
Here is my on the record legal expert opinion: “If Trump runs, he will lose. Period.” https://t.co/zi96XW0EVm

Unlike previous FBI hits on people linked to Trump, such as Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon, the establishment media was kept in the dark. They did not get a heads up. How did we learn about the raid? Trump announced it via his social media page around 1830 hours est on Monday. Very strange.
Think about this. Not a single soul in the Trump universe who knew about the raid at Mar A Lago breathed a word about this unholy assault. Not one. And, surprisingly, the FBI kept its mouth shut. There is something more to this.
The outrage generated by the FBI’s unlawful and unwarranted assault on the residence of Donald Trump may have been because President Trump baited them. What do I mean? President Trump managed to convince the FBI that he had sensitive information about Cross Fire Hurricane hidden in his cellar that could destroy the FBI. The criminal Wray no longer cares about the rule of law. Protecting the FBI is his number one priority. Rather than wait and risk exposure by Trump, Wray, with the support of Garland and Biden, gave the greenlight to attack Trump’s Florida residence.
Why did Mr. Trump wait so patiently throughout the day before telling the world that the FBI was behaving like the Soviet KGB or the East German Stasi? I think it was a conscious, informed decision. Donald Trump is exposing the FBI for the criminal thugs they are. Corrupt and lawless. Read more…
There are five reasons the FBI will lose in their effort to justify stealing the President’s documents from his iconic home, Mar-a-Lago.
1. Attorney Mike Davis, who worked with Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch, shares that the President has the right to declassify any documents he wants.
2. Also, Davis notes that the President has the right to take whatever documents he wishes and to claim they are his.
Davis calls the FBI’s actions unprecedented, unnecessary, and unlawful. He also points out that the judge that signed off on the raid is biased. He recused himself from another Trump case. He’s also involved with Jeffrey Epstein.
3. The FBI claims that national security is at risk if classified documents were released to the public.
This is not the case. Attorney Jonathan Turley points out that the DOJ said the same about releasing the warrant to raid Mar-a-Lago but when released, no such harm occurred. He rightly notes that millions of Americans are very upset about the raid and have no trust in the DOJ. AG Garland does nothing to appease these millions of Americans.
Aas pointed out by the Conservative Treehouse, since the President declassified the documents, there was no risk of loss with the way he was handling the documents.
The framework of the appeal appears to be built on a false premise. The DOJ argument is contingent upon the government not having the original documents, and the claim is made *AS IF* there is only one copy. Even if this appeal is within the framework of a valid issue for an appellate court review (not a guarantee), when you apply commonsense the motion fails on its face.The original documents are always retained by the originating agency. No one, not even the President, sees original intelligence documents from within any agency creating the product. Everything, including what President Trump would have seen while in office, and including any “read and return” version of the intelligence product, is a copy that stems from the originals. As a result, the executive branch (DOJ) has access to the originals regardless of what copies they may have retrieved from Mar-a-Lago.
5. The FBI insinuates that the President committed a crime by making up a crime that is not a crime.
Attorney Davis notes in the video in the article above that the DOJ is claiming that there is a right to obtain the documents that President Trump kept based on the law. But the Presidential Records Act lacks any criminal enforcement mechanism. This Act is the crux of the actions taken by President Trump. As Davis shares, the President can declassify the records he wants to declassify. He also can take any documents with him that he chooses after leaving office. This is what President Trump did. The DOJ had no legal right to invade President Trump’s home and steal the documents he kept there, especially after he was complying with them up to that date.
