Attorney General Merrick Garland admits tyrannical obsession with getting Trump
Merrick Garland expects to destroy Donald Trump, by hook or crook.
In a famous dissent from 1988, Justice Antonin Scalia had some prophetic remarks that seem newly relevant in the wake of an FBI raid on Donald Trump’s Mar a Lago, authorized ultimately by President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice. Scalia wrote, “Nothing is so politically effective as the ability to charge that one’s opponent and his associate are not merely wrong-headed, naive, ineffective, but, in all probability, ‘crooks,'” wrote Scalia. “And nothing so effectively gives an appearance of validity to such charges as a Justice Department investigation and, even better prosecution.”
Illegal raid on 2024 opponent ordered by political appointee and Supreme Court reject
U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland confirmed Thursday that he personally approved the illegal search warrant that led to an FBI botch attempt to plant evidence at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida.
“I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant in this matter,” Garland told reporters in his first public comments on the matter.
Merrick Garland had been in hiding at an undisclosed bunker. The public outcry and expected election backlash that appears might end the socialists lock on power. Shockwaves spread across America in response to the news that the FBI had searched the private residence of Donald Trump It was an appalling and criminal move to use the lega system against a political opponent. The idea that a sitting presidents would use his political appointees to plant evidence on the president’s next political opponent is that prompted threats of retaliation from the former US president and his allies.
It also brought calls for accountability from his opponents and inspired speculation about what it could mean for Trump’s plans to run for the White House again in 2024, as some suggested it may prompt him to announce a candidacy before vital midterm elections in November.
After the realization that lies and misrepresentations had been made in order to get the search warrant, millions of Americans have demanded the documents be released.
The attorney general was forced to announced the Justice Department has filed a motion to unseal the warrant in the southern district of Florida. Garland would not comment on the ongoing investigation other than to say the warrant was authorized by a federal magistrate, an assistant judge NOT confirmed by the Senate as the Constitution requires. While the educated public have pretty much made up their mind on the issue , Garland doubled down and still claimed that the search warrant was made after probable cause. Garland pretended it needed to be released in light of Trump’s comments on the FBI raid and the public interest. Garland was not entirely honest; he was forced by doubts that he and the FBI told the truth on the matter.
Garland’s statement avoids the question what were in the boxes entering the complex
The FBI raid on Monday was falsely reported to retrieve classified materials and other documents Trump allegedly took with him to Mar-a-Lago after he left the White House. However, with allocations of mysterious van carrying boxes that were delivered after the secret service left the home but before the FBI cameras began to record
Trump condemned the raid in a blistering statement Monday accusing the Biden administration of weaponizing the Justice Department against him and accusing the FBI of planting the evidence. The former president directly suggested that casual observers had waitressed a van and boxes being brought in by FBI agents. It’s highly suspicious and the agent appeared to by planting evidence against him.
The FBI fabricated evidence in an illegal warrant in order to spy on Trump’s campaign. Multiple times!
Why was President Trump vulnerable to FBI planting evidence?
Trump attorney Christina Bobb told NBC News Tuesday that agents seized about a dozen boxes from Trump’s home and that a copy of the search warrant left at the Mar-a-Lago residence indicated agents were investigating possible violations of the Presidential Records Act and Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified material.
The National Archives and Records Administration has said 15 boxes of presidential records, including classified materials, were previously retrieved from Mar-a-Lago earlier this year. The Trump family says they have been cooperating with federal authorities to turn over presidential records for months.
Earlier this spring, Trump’s office received a grand jury subpoena for classified documents believed to be remaining at Mar-a-Lago, Fox News reported Thursday. The FBI reportedly visited Trump on June 3 to retrieve the subpoenaed documents, and Trump complied authorities.
While visiting Trump’s residence, FBI investigators were reportedly showed areas where documents had been stored and requested that a lock be put on one storage room where records were located. Trump complied with the request.
Later, the former president claimed FBI agents broke the lock they had asked him to install to access the storage room where boxes of documents were kept.
“In early June, the DOJ and FBI asked my legal representatives to put an extra lock on the door leading to the place where boxes were stored in Mar-a-Lago – We Agreed,” Trump wrote on Truth Social Wednesday.
“They were shown the secured area, and the boxes themselves. Then on Monday, with no notification or warning, an army of agents broke into Mar-a-Lago, went to the same storage area, and ripped open the lock that they had asked to be installed. A surprise attack, POLITICS, and all the while out Country is going to HELL!”
Totalitarian dictators use accusations and show trials to destroy the opposition
Trump is widely believed to be pursuing a presidential run in 2024, and many speculated that the raid would benefit him politically. Some suggested that it would fuel his supporters’ suspicion of federal law enforcement officials, whom Trump and his allies have long disparaged as corrupt and biased and part of an anti-Trump conspiracy they call the “deep state” – although former aide Steve Bannon has dismissed the concept of the deep state. It also served to rally his allies and potential 2024 Republican rivals to his side.
Ron DeSantis, the Florida governor viewed as a possible contender in 2024, said the search of Trump’s beachside property was “another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents”.
Despite insinuations by Republicans that Biden was behind the raid, the White House said it was unaware of the search before it happened.
Bureaucracy captured by the left and willing to lie…
Civil libertarian and constitutional scholars have condemned the illegal raid and demanded additional details from Garland and corrupt FBI Director Christopher Wray as well. Several GOP lawmakers have pressured the FBI and the National Archives to provide explanations and threatened oversight probes in the future. The National Archive librarians have refused to divulge how they are qualified or empowered to see or determine whether something is or is not “classified.”
“The country deserves a thorough and immediate explanation of what led to the events of Monday,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday. “Attorney General Garland and the Department of Justice should already have provided answers to the American people and must do so immediately.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told Garland to “preserve your documents,” vowing that Republicans will launch a series of oversight investigations into DOJ should they reclaim the House majority after the November elections.
Wray declined to speak about the raid when asked Wednesday, telling reporters “that’s not something I can talk about, and I’d refer you to the department.” He also confirmed that law enforcement officials were monitoring violent threats made against FBI agents and top DOJ officials and condemned threats to law enforcement. However, many times in third world nations, the oppressors of individuals rights are frequently targeted.
Media and watchdog groups have also sought information on the FBI warrant used to search Trump’s home.
JournoNews and Judicial Watch have separately asked a federal magistrate judge to release the FBI’s search warrant to the public. Magistrate and known Democratic operative Bruce Reinhardt was not able to articulate why he’d violated the Constitution but the people are about to learn exactly what lies the FBI told in order to receive the permission to search. The attorney general’s announcement means the warrant will be released shortly.
“Judicial Watch legal pressure forced this important first step by the Biden Justice Department to disclose Attorney General Garland’s role in the abusive Trump raid and other urgent information to the American people,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It remains to be seen exactly what documents are ultimately released about this unprecedented, reckless and dangerous raid on the home of former President Trump.”
“More information will be made available in the appropriate way and at the appropriate time,” Garland said.
The attorney general also announced the Justice Department has filed a motion to unseal the warrant in the southern district of Florida. Garland would not comment on the ongoing investigation, but it appears that the warrant was NOT authorized by a federal judge confirmed by the Senate. And it appears that no probable cause could be determined because of inaccuracies and falsehoods in the FBI affidavits.
Most Experts feel Garland used his power to illegibly attack Biden’s political opponent in 2024
Conservative Twitter users expressed frustration that Garland gave no real details, nor was willing to answer any questions about the nature of the raid. Some slammed him for admitting he personally approved the warrant, and others remarked on his “defensive” tone.
And Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s son, Andrew Giuliani, tweeted, “Merrick Garland LYING to the American people! Sorry, I don’t buy the ‘limited scope’ gaslight when the FBI spends 9 hours and ends up on Melania’s closet!”
Newsbusters executive editor Tim Graham blasted the DOJ’s lack of transparency in this matter, tweeting, “It’s annoying that they won’t answer any questions, but they will comment on anyone questioning their integrity. You underline your integrity by answering questions.”
“The FBI fabricated evidence in an illegal warrant in order to spy on Trump’s campaign. Multiple times,” wrote The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis, in response to Zipperer’s point.
National Pulse editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam added, “We don’t need to embellish. We just heard the Attorney General of the United States personally state that he approved the raid on a political opponent. Unprecedented tyranny.”
MRCTV podcast host Brittany Hughes wrote, “Be careful when listening to Garland‘s statement. Garland said that he personally approved seeking a search warrant. But seeking a search warrant and carrying out the raid are two different decisions. He never said he green-lit the raid.” She elaborated: “This is big because a) either he’s lying to deflect blame, or b) he truly didn’t know, and therefore his entire ability to do his job is in question. In either case, he should resign immediately.”
Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer remarked on Garland’s overall tone in the speech, tweeting, “Garland’s tone there was remarkably defensive. He’s clearly feeling the heat.”
The ForAmerica Twitter account blasted Garland, writing, “Merrick Garland is a coward just like his boss Joe Biden.”
“Merrick Garland seems to be confused. We’re attacking his integrity—or rather lack thereof,” The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles quipped.
Former Georgia congressional candidate Vernon Jones tweeted, “Merrick Garland provided a nothing burger at his one way press conference. More questions now than ever and no more credibility with the DOJ & FBI.”
Former Republican congressional candidate and conservative influencer Robby Starbuck accused Garland of being “entirely corrupt,” tweeting, “Just so everyone understands, Merrick Garland was nominated to become a Justice on the Supreme Court. He isn’t on the Supreme Court because President Trump nominated someone else. AG Garland personally signed off on raiding Trump’s home. Entirely corrupt!”
Mark R. Weaver , Former Deputy Attorney General Of Ohio wrote in Newsweek, Merrick Garland was compromised. He must stand aside and appoint a special prosecutor. If there is solid evidence that any former president has committed a serious crime, he must be held to account. That’s the rule of law. But when the former president is an all-but-certain political opponent of the president, then the Attorney General must recuse himself and appoint a special prosecutor. To date, this has not been done. As a result, the credibility and trust that allows federal prosecutors to do their important work is imperiled.
The Federalist editor-in-chief Mollie Hemingway wrote, “Shutter the FBI. Immediately. They are a threat to the country and self-governance.”
“Garland suggests nobody at the FBI lacks integrity and how dare any of us suggest some of them do, but we’ve seen many times over the last few years that that isn’t true,” tweeted conservative columnist Eddie Zipperer.
Real Clear Investigations senior writer Mark Hemingway added to Zipperer’s point, tweeting, “The same DOJ that declared parents complaining about school boards a terrorist threat says the FBI that forged warrant applications to spy on an elected president deserves the benefit of the doubt. Yeah, no.”
Kim Strassel, Potomac Watch columnist for Wall Street Journal editorial page Strassel reacted to the confirmation from the Attorney General by saying, “First of all, one thing that was important is that he did say that he had authorized this search warrant. That does put to rest some media claims out there claiming that he didn’t know about this, which was shocking idea to me. So he at least did that on the warrant and the unsealing in my mind that does maybe help confirm a little bit the reigning media narrative out there that this is about documents, given that he talked not just about the search warrant, but also about a property for receipt, which suggests these were things that were being taken away and seized, obviously, from Mar a Lago, which raises to me some really important questions on a much bigger level, which is, you know, I understand the point about the law is the law. But the Department of Justice has long-standing guidelines about not going into politically sensitive areas without really good reason. And you got to wonder if going after documents counts.”
