The FBI claimed it raided President Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago last week looking for classified documents relating to nuclear weapons, according to the Washington Post.
Don’t believe this misdirection.
The DOJ and FBI under Attorney General Merrick Garland thought they could pull off an assault on president Trump first suggested by Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias: claim he concealed a classified document and charge him with mishandling it under federal law. Title 18 of U.S. Code 2071 states that:
Whoever, having custody of any such record…willfully and unlawfully conceals the same…shall be fined or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.
Mind you, this is the same FBI that played “Russia collusion!” on repeat, attempting to disqualify Trump from running in 2016.
But this time, Garland underestimated the fury of the American people, who are righteously outraged that partisan leftists are weaponizing the FBI against a former president and likely Republican nominee. Everyday Americans who share Trump’s political beliefs realize that if this can happen to Trump, it can happen to them too. The only difference is, when it happens to them, it won’t be front-page news.
The FBI is now backpedaling, claiming its agents were looking for nuke documents, a convenient (and implausible) excuse that the FBI will never have to prove because it can’t reveal classified information to the public.
If it smells fishy, it’s because the FBI is rotten to the core.
It’s time to abolish the FBI. The raid on Mar-a-Lago revealed the agency to be a political hatchet man for the Left disguised as law enforcement. People have rightly lost their trust that it will operate as a neutral enforcer of law. Now, half the country is looking over its shoulder wondering whether a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag will bring federal agents to their door in pre-dawn hours.
Farm out the vital functions of the FBI and raze the rest. RIP to the FBI, an organization that died the way it was founded in the J. Edgar Hoover era—as a political tool for the elite and powerful, weaponized to spy on their enemies.
Some might say this is too harsh, that the FBI must’ve had a high bar to conduct a search on Mar-a-Lago.
Does the name Crossfire Hurricane ring a bell? The FBI used Russian propaganda compiled by a foreign spy, purchased by Hillary Clinton, and laundered through the DOJ to justify spying on Donald Trump’s first presidential campaign. The FBI acquired four separate FISA court warrants to justify the spying. The FBI’s attorney knowingly falsified information to obscure the fact that Page had worked with the FBI to counter Russian spies, so that the FBI could portray Page as a Russian asset himself.
The Office of the Inspector General ultimately found 17 significant inaccuracies in the FBI’s warrants to entrap and defame Trump with allegations of Russian collusion they knew were unsourced and untrue. High-level FBI agents sent text messages conspiring how to weaponize their power to take down Donald Trump because of his politics.
In between “Russia collusion!” and the Mar-a-Lago raid, the FBI convened its counterterrorism team to discuss which terrorism label to affix to parents who object to critical race theory being taught in their children’s classrooms. Project Veritas exposed an internal FBI training document identifying “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, the Betsy Ross flag, support for the second amendment, and quoting U.S. history as signs someone might be a “militia violent extremist.” The New York Post reported that FBI agents threatened the owner of the computer repair shop where Hunter Biden abandoned his laptop.
As for the “equal application of justice,” where is the raid on Hunter Biden? Are the emails in which Hunter admits to selling access to “the big guy” and receiving money from shady individuals tied to hostile foreign governments not enough? Hillary Clinton, patroness of the Steele dossier, likewise has yet to be raided by the FBI, despite destroying evidence of the 33,000 emails including highly classified information she criminally housed on her insecure email server. The pedophiles associated with Jeffrey Epstein also remain on the loose, as do the politicians who covered for them.
Yet the FBI’s leaders chose to raid Mar-a-Lago. Why? Because they hate Trump. Because they can.
It’s time to abolish the FBI for its banana-republic style targeting of the Left’s political opponents.
This is different. This is monumental. The FBI is now a threat to our nation.
