STARNES: Redacted Affidavit Just More Evidence FBI Needs to Be Dismantled
National radio host Todd Starnes slammed the Biden Justice Department after its redacted affidavit was unsealed Friday.
More than half of the 38-page document is mostly or fully blacked out, giving little transparency into why former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was raided on Aug. 8.
“You’re going to find nothing jaw-dropping here, except the fact that the FBI redacted just about everything,” Starnes said on the “Todd Starnes Show” moments after the document was unsealed to the public.
“I wonder how many black magic markers they went through marking these documents,” Starnes said.
The FBI even redacted the reason why they wanted to redact things.
As The Federalist’s CEO, Sean Davis, pointed out in the document, the DOJ “told a federal court that the FBI had to raid Trump’s house because a CBS news article saw trucks at Mar-a-Lago when Trump was president.”
Guest host Jeff Katz said he couldn’t believe that was in the affidavit: “It just smells to high heaven.”
“Yes,” Starnes responded. “I hope the American people see through this, but again, it’s very disturbing, especially when you throw in the interview that Mark Zuckerberg just did with Joe Rogan yesterday where he admitted…the FBI actually intimidated Facebook into blocking, or at least suppressing most of the coverage about [Hunter Biden’s] laptop.”
Starnes concluded of the affidavit: “Just more evidence we need to defund and dismantle the FBI. If they come knocking at your door, don’t answer. Call your lawyer. Don’t talk to them.”
Former President Donald Trump blasted the FBI’s raid on his South Florida estate and called the United States a “lawless country.”
