White House SCRAMBLES As FBI Raid Backfires BIG TIME
(TruthandLiberty.com) – On Monday evening, former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social to share that the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago home. The nation’s top law enforcement agency initiated the unprecedented move after the National Archives demanded Trump return the presidential records he allegedly took when leaving the White House in January 2021. Many pundits with government experience said an escalation to this point likely involved officials as high on the chain as President Joe Biden. Still, the administration distanced itself from the Justice Department’s action.
On Tuesday, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters no one in the White House was briefed or given advance notice of the FBI’s search. She said Biden learned about what happened through the media, like everyone else in America. The press secretary emphasized the administration provided the Department of Justice (DOJ) autonomy to do its job without political interference and refused further comment on the matter.

CBS News confirmed the highest levels of the DOJ approved the raid. Attorney General Merrick Garland has remained silent, and the media doesn’t expect he will comment about the developing situation or the search. Two sources reportedly noted the FBI seized boxes and documents from Trump’s residence, and agents didn’t take any electronic devices into custody.
