Many are questioning why President Biden has chosen to remain silent as a wave of controversy over the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) unprecedented raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, has the nation frustrated and becoming even more divided.
Monday marks two weeks since FBI agents raided the private estate in Palm Beach, Florida, discovering classified and “top secret” information among boxes of documents.
Biden has yet to comment on the raid, which was the first of its kind in history involving a former sitting president.
Republicans have accused Biden of weaponizing the Department of Justice against his predecessor, who appears likely to run against the president again in 2024.
A breaking story by Just The News goes a long way in explaining why sleepy Joe decided to take multiple vacations over the past 3 weeks.
Biden’s White House was intimately involved in the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) criminal probe into former President Donald Trump, according to government documents reviewed by Just The News.
Several correspondences between Trump’s attorneys and members of the Biden administration revealed that the federal government appeared poised to waive Trump’s claims of executive privilege over documents that Trump kept at Mar-a-Lago until earlier this year.
As Just The News reported:
The memos show then-White House Deputy Counsel Jonathan Su was engaged in conversations with the FBI, DOJ and National Archives as early as April, shortly after 15 boxes of classified and other materials were voluntarily returned to the federal historical agency from Trump’s Florida home.
By May, Su conveyed to the Archives that President Joe Biden would not object to waiving his predecessor’s claims to executive privilege, a decision that opened the door for DOJ to get a grand jury to issue a subpoena compelling Trump to turn over any remaining materials he possessed from his presidency.
A May 10 letter from acting National Archivist Debra Steidel Wall to Trump’s legal team confirmed the White House’s involvement in the DOJ probe against Trump.
“On April 11, 2022, the White House Counsel’s Office — affirming a request from the Department of Justice supported by an FBI letterhead memorandum — formally transmitted a request that NARA provides the FBI access to the 15 boxes for its review within seven days, with the possibility that the FBI might request copies of specific documents following its review of the boxes,” Wall wrote.
The letter continued:
The Counsel to the President has informed me that, in light of the particular circumstances presented here, President Biden defers to my determination, in consultation with the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel, regarding whether or not I should uphold the former President’s purported “protective assertion of executive privilege.”…I have therefore decided not to honor the former President’s “protective” claim of privilege.
These documents reviewed by Just The News are the strongest pieces of evidence showing the Biden White House’s involvement in the DOJ probe, although the White House previously claimed to have “no advanced knowledge” of the recent FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago.
“Does ANYBODY really believe that the White House didn’t know about this?” Trump posted on Truth Social. “WITCH HUNT!”
However, Just the News does not report that the White House had specific knowledge of the search warrant or the raid, but that their participation, through waiving executive privilege, was crucial to the investigation.
Instead of honoring Trump’s executive privilege claims, Wall relied on a Supreme Court precedent that “strongly suggests that a former President may not successfully assert executive privilege ‘against the very Executive Branch in whose name the privilege is invoked.’”
Well, there you have it, folks.
The current Executive Branch is completely throwing the previous Chief Executive Officer under the sold-out Department of Justice’s corruption bus.
This practice of trying to completely destroy political opponents has been perpetrated by dictators in “Banana Republics”, throughout world history, but had previously never been seen before in United States history.
The Great Reset globalists, using Barack Obama appear to be directing Biden to act like Venezuela’s corrupt president and failing dictator, Nicolás Maduro.
The administration’s actions are permanently changing the Washington DC political landscape in our nation’s capital.
The question is will the GOP choose to finally take the gloves off, or will they continue to get steamrolled by the Marxist movement that is crushing them daily?
