For the Rule of Law to Reign, the FBI Must Be Destroyed:
The FBI searched Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate as part of an investigation into whether he took classified records from the White House to his Florida residence, people familiar with the matter said last week (August 8th), a move that represents a dramatic and unprecedented escalation of law enforcement scrutiny of the former president.
The Justice Department has been investigating the potential mishandling of classified information since the National Archives and Records Administration said it had received from Mar-a-Lago 15 boxes of White House records, including documents containing classified information, earlier this year.
The National Archives said Trump should have turned over that material upon leaving office, and it asked the Justice Department to investigate.
The raid by over 30 plain clothes agents from the Southern District of Florida and the FBI’s Washington Field Office extended through the Trump family’s entire 3,000-square-foot private quarters, as well as to a separate office and safe, and a locked basement storage room in which 15 cardboard boxes of material from the White House were stored.
Feds arrived at 9 a.m. and didn’t leave until 6:30 p.m.
In his speech on August 11th, Attorney General Merrick Garland said he “personally approved” the decision to seek a search warrant for Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago (www.foxnews.com/politics/doj-asks-court-unseal-mar-a-lago-raid-warrant-ag-merrick-garland-personally-signed-off-trump-search)
ABOUT CENTER FOR SECURITY POLICY:
For 34 years, the Center for Security Policy has pioneered the organization, management and direction of public policy coalitions to promote U.S. national security. Even more importantly, the Center’s mission has been to secure the adoption of the products of such efforts by skillfully enlisting support from executive branch officials, key legislators, other public policy organizations and opinion-shapers in the media and the public at large. The Center has been nationally and internationally recognized as a resource for timely, informed and penetrating analyses of foreign and defense policy matters.
RECENT CENTER MESSAGING:
Question: Did the dozens of FBI agents who rummaged through former President Trump’s Florida home do something more there than remove large quantities of sensitive documents?
White House official-turned talk show host Sebastian Gorka told Steve Bannon’s “War Room Pandemic” show last week that a recently retired twenty-three year veteran of the Bureau asserted: “Given the amount of equipment they rolled into Mar-a-Lago and the fact they spent nine hours there, he believes the Bureau planted surveillance equipment, bugs, inside the President’s residence.”
The FBI raiders’ request that surveillance cameras inside Mar-a-Lago be turned off was reportedly not honored by the Secret Service. If so, an investigation into this suspicion should quickly confirm or deny whether Team Biden’s efforts to get something, anything, on President Trump surpassed even the notorious Watergate break-in that drove a previous president, Richard Nixon, from office.
