Merrick Garland: I Gave the Order for the Pre-Dawn, Guns-Drawn Raid of Mar-a-Lago
Attorney General Merrick Garland made a statement Thursday about the search warrant on the pre-dawn, guns-drawn raid into former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resident.
Garland cited “probable cause” for the warrant, which he said was given to Trump’s attorneys.
“I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant in this matter,” Garland said.

The Justice Department moved to unseal the search warrant and itemized receipt of what was taken from Trump’s South Florida residence.
He denounced “unfounded attacks” against the DOJ and praised the FBI agents as “dedicated, patriotic public servants.”
Garland left without taking any questions from the press.

The raid had as many as 30 FBI agents raided the president’s Florida residence.
“There’s absolutely no way that President Biden did not know about this,” national radio host Todd Starnes said.
Trump raised the question Wednesday of the Feds “planting” some type of evidence during the nine-hour-plus raid.
The FBI could arrest Trump on national television to ensure he doesn’t run in 2024, Starnes predicted on Wednesday.
The “Todd Starnes Show” host commented on how the Biden administration has weaponized the DOJ against its political opponents.
“Mark my words here,” Starnes said. “There will be a moment when President Trump is giving one of his big speeches somewhere and the FBI will storm the stage. They will arrest the president on national television and drag him away. That’s how all of this will end up.”
This is a developing story.
