President Biden strongly denied having any involvement in the FBI’s raid at Mar-a-Lago.
But newly released memos show otherwise.
Just The News reports that the Biden Administration worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archives to instigate the investigation of former President Trump.
Long before it professed no prior knowledge of the raid on Donald Trump’s estate, the Biden White House worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archives to instigate the criminal probe into alleged mishandling of documents, allowing the FBI to review evidence retrieved from Mar-a-Lago this spring and eliminating the 45th president’s claims to executive privilege, according to contemporaneous government documents reviewed by Just the News.
The memos show then-White House Deputy Counsel Jonathan Su was engaged in conversations with the FBI, DOJ and National Archives as early as April, shortly after 15 boxes of classified and other materials were voluntarily returned to the federal historical agency from Trump’s Florida home.
By May, Su conveyed to the Archives that President Joe Biden would not object to waiving his predecessor’s claims to executive privilege, a decision that opened the door for DOJ to get a grand jury to issue a subpoena compelling Trump to turn over any remaining materials he possessed from his presidency.
The machinations are summarized in several memos and emails exchanged between the various agencies in spring 2022, months before the FBI took the added unprecedented step of raiding Trump’s Florida compound with a court-issued search warrant.
The most complete summary was contained in a lengthy letter dated May 10 that acting National Archivist Debra Steidel Wall sent Trump’s lawyers summarizing the White House’s involvement.
In other words, the Biden Administration knowingly lied to the American people — as did the FBI.
But this is standard operating procedure when it comes to the Justice Department’s relationship with Trump.
With great confidence we can now say that the Biden Administration used the office of the presidency to target political enemies.
This is far worse than the allegations made against President Nixon during Watergate.
But even worse than that is the knowledge that the FBI has been weaponized to target and in some cases plant evidence to take down perceived enemies of the Deep State.
Those responsible should face the full wrath of the justice system — and that includes the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
