No one understands what the Monday FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago was really all about. Democrat Joe Biden’s administration and his apparent private security – the FBI and DOJ- have refused to say what they were doing or why they were raiding a private home.
However, information is coming out quickly now from people who know some details, who were on the scene, and the evidence they are revealing is quite telling about the purpose of the raid.
The FBI raid on President Donald J. Trump has quickly come under scrutiny by many people around the United States; the pressure to be transparent has gotten to the point where the corrupt Attorney General, Merrik Garland, had to finally come out of hiding to make a statement on Thursday, something he obviously did not want to do, according to his embarrassing and make demeanor.
Garland explained on Thursday that it was he who ‘signed off’ on the raid- and the PR on his stupid move is so oppressive to the Democrat regime in DC that they are obviously scrambling to do some damage control.
But they are not going to be able to fix this mess.
As suspected, there is some evidence that the raid may have been part of a plan to further spy on Trump, his family, his associates, and his potential campaign for President in 2024.
Jack Phillips reported for the Epoch Times about spying tactics being plated at Trump’s home during the raid:
A person close to the Trump family suggested the FBI may have planted “listening devices” during a raid targeting former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence earlier this week.
Lawyers for the former president previously said that FBI agents would not allow Trump’s team to observe or supervise their search of Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach.
One lawyer, Lindsey Halligan, told Fox News on Thursday that agents are believed to have searched Trump’s bedroom, office, and storage room.
Because the FBI allegedly “didn’t allow anybody to supervise what they were doing, and they specifically requested to turn off the security cameras,” Kimberly Guilfoyle, Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancée and an advisor to the former president’s 2020 campaign, told Newsmax.
“Why? Because they didn’t want to be caught with what they were doing. How do you know there weren’t listening devices planted or evidence planted there?
“It’s something that has to be investigated and checked out, and we want to see the affidavit and what was their probable cause to be able to go in there and break into the president’s home,” she added. For her claim, Guilfoyle did not provide evidence.
Trump’s son Eric Trump told the Daily Mail on Wednesday that security cameras remained on when the agents carried out their search, accusing the agents of refusing to hand over a warrant and kicking lawyers off the premises.
Agents, he said, told Trump’s team to turn off the cameras but they remained on, and those agents went to places “they shouldn’t have been.”
The outlet went on in detail:
The FBI and Department of Justice have not responded to requests for comment. The judge who approved the FBI warrant, Bruce Reinhart, ordered the Justice Department on Wednesday to respond to requests to unseal the warrant in the case.
The White House said President Joe Biden was not aware of the FBI search before it was announced earlier this week. Top Republicans have called on the Department of Justice to release documents pertaining to the raid or to have Attorney General Merrick Garland speak about the matter.
Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray have remained silent on the Mar-a-Lago search. But on Wednesday, Wray complained to reporters in a press conference about alleged violent threats levied against federal law enforcement agents in the wake of the raid.
The former president on Wednesday took to his Truth Social app and speculated on whether the FBI planted evidence. Members of Trump’s team said he wasn’t there while the raid occurred.
“The FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting.’”
These reports match what has been discussed by Trump’s lawyer, Christian Bobb. Bobb was on the scene on Monday at Lar-A-Lago and first-hand reports about the behavior of the FBI are scandalous.
Bobb appeared on Real America’s Voice to talk more about what she saw that day:
“Bobb says that while staff initially complied w/ the FBI request to turn off the CCTV cameras in Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s lawyers stepped in and the cameras were turned back on.”
“The cameras were only off for a very short period of time.”@christina_bobb, says that while staff initially complied w/ the FBI request to turn off the CCTV cameras in Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s lawyers stepped in and the cameras were turned back on.@RealDrGina #PrimeTime pic.twitter.com/NXxUvtowqm

BOBB: “It’s kind of funny. I think the folks in New York with President Trump and his family probably had a better view than I did because they had the CCTV on, and they were able to watch the raid.
I was, you know, I was stuck in the parking lot there to collect paper and answer questions, but they were actually able to see the whole thing.
So they actually have a better idea of what took place inside the home.
Initially, the FBI said you need to turn off all the cameras, and then, of course, the staff complied and said, oh the FBI is making us turn off all the cameras and then the lawyers jumped in and said, NO you actually don’t have to turn them off.
So shortly after they turned them back on. So the cameras were only off for a very short period of time.”
So it will be interesting to see what Trump has on the film about what the FBI did.
