It seems that Biden’s Trump raid is not playing well even with Biden’s deranged groupies…
According to unidentified sources speaking to mainstream media sites on Monday evening, the White House was ignorant of any federal law enforcement activity going on while the FBI raided President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.
In multiple reports, the White House claims it only learned of the FBI’s stunning raid on former President Trump’s home in Florida on Twitter, at the same time the media did.
Senior White House officials learned about the FBI’s raid on Trump’s “Southern White House” like the rest of us and had no prior knowledge, claims one of those infamous “source familiar” persons who speak without any accountability.
On Tuesday, when asked whether Biden or any White House officials were aware of the raid or had been briefed, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said they were not.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that President Biden was not informed that the FBI intended to search former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence before the action was carried out on Monday.
“What I can tell you definitively and for sure, he was not aware of this,” Jean-Pierre said of Biden. “Nobody at the White House was. Nobody was given a heads up and we did not know about what happened yesterday.”

However, the New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin described the White House’s discovery of the raid, as “improbable as it may seem that the Department of Justice would execute a search warrant on a former president and political opponent of the administration without Biden’s knowledge.”
“Senior White House officials found out about the FBI’s Mar a Lago raid on Twitter, had no notice, per source familiar,” Martin tweeted.

Given the domestic political climate and the signal that it sends to the rest of the world, Jean-Pierre dodged a question about whether the White House is concerned about the raid.
“The Justice Department conducts investigations independently and we leave any law enforcement matters to them,” she said. “It would not be appropriate for us to comment on any ongoing investigations. I can say that President Biden has been unequivocal since the campaign: he believes in the rule of law, in the independence of the Justice Department investigations, that those investigations should be free from political influence and he has held that commitment as president.”
During the press conference, she also engaged in a contentious exchange with Fox News’ Peter Doocy, who questioned whether the administration was “weaponizing” the Justice Department and the FBI against political rivals.
The press secretary replied, “The president believes in the rule of law. The president believes in the independence in the Department of Justice —“
Doocy then interrupted to say it was a yes or no question, to which Jean-Pierre replied: “No, it’s a yes or no for you. I’m answering the question, you may not like it but I’m answering the question.”

It should be obvious that many Americans won’t find that assertion or explanation persuasive. When the primary federal law enforcement agency—the embodiment of presidential power—decided to conduct a raid on the former president’s house, how was the White House to learn about it before people started tweeting about it?
That suggests that either the White House is lying or that the FBI was keeping the White House in the dark about the Palm Beach raid and scavenger hunt, neither of which is a very positive representation of the FBI and Biden administration.
And if it’s really true that no one in the White House was aware of the raid, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Department of Justice, and specifically the FBI, would be culpable and held accountable for deliberately executing the search warrant behind Biden’s back…but then the biggest question is who is in charge of monitoring the FBI and holding it accountable for any further actions?
Well, I’ll consider it when Biden fires Merrick Garland and Christopher Wray, until then it’s Bidens all the way down.
And whether the Biden administration, Garland, and Department of Justice are lying for using federal law enforcement to target political adversaries is anyone’s guess, because for sure there will undoubtedly be requests in the coming days for the FBI, DOJ, and White House to provide more information regarding the raid’s origins, participants, and purpose.
