Trump Lawyers Concoct a Theory That the FBI Is Sabotaging Trump

As news broke that the FBI had seized 10 boxes of evidence while executing its search warrant at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago residence, its attorneys floated the idea that something more sinister could happen.

Appearing Tuesday night on Fox News, Trump attorney Alina Habba expressed concern about the actions of FBI personnel, alleging the possibility of planted material.

“Quite honestly, I’m afraid they planted something, you know?” said the lawyer. “At this point, who knows? I don’t trust the government, and that’s a very scary thing as an American.

In a similar tone, Trump’s lawyer, Christina Bobb, challenged Real America’s Voice earlier in the day with “no [being] allowed to observe” the search while being present during Monday’s raid on Trump’s legal behalf.

“No, there’s no guarantee that something hasn’t been planted,” the attorney said. “I’m not saying that’s what they did.”

“It was a completely unnecessary power flex. It was a weird flex,” added Bobb. “It’s very honestly sad to see what they’ve done to our country.”

Asked by The Daily Beast on Tuesday if she thinks the FBI is playing tricks, Bobb said: “I have no reason at this point to believe anyone made anything up.”

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the National Archives had already seized 15 boxes of documents “and other items” from the station in January “that Mr. Trump should have turned over to the agency at the end of his term.”

Those boxes contained several documents that federal law requires be turned over once a president leaves office, as well as records that officials described as “classified national security information.”

A source told the newspaper that those documents included correspondence between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, among others. The discovery of these documents led to the involvement of the Department of Justice. In June, Justice Department lawyers returned to Mar-a-Lago, where they demanded more information about the sensitive documents taken from the White House. Investigators were led to a basement where boxes of documents were stored, but investigators “looked around and eventually left”, a source told the newspaper. Log.

A June 8 letter from the Justice Department ordered Trump’s legal team to secure the room where the documents were stored. The latest search was undertaken because the FBI believed more classified documents had been stored at the residence, the newspaper reported, but it is unclear how or if the latest search relates to the June visit.

The FBI raid may have caused headaches in Trump’s orbit, but it also gives MAGAworld allies more than enough material to victimize Trump, which a current adviser sees as a path for Trump to win a second term – or, as some advisers mistakenly claim, a third term.

“The Biden people love to talk about preserving ‘norms,’ and now they’re so desperate to ‘get’ Trump that they’re raiding his house and making him a martyr,” a Trump adviser told The Daily Beast. . “They’re going to mess around and get him re-elected on their own.”

Elsewhere on cable news Tuesday night, several Trump supporters questioned the legitimacy of law enforcement activities in the former president’s estate.

Fox News host Jesse Watters suggested the FBI was engaging in illegal activity.

“What the FBI is probably doing is planting evidence, which they did during the Russian hoax,” Watters claimed, referring pejoratively to the Russian interference investigation. in the 2016 election, a habit among Fox primetime hosts. “We also have a hunch they doctored evidence to get the warrant.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich also voiced unfounded fears about evidence tampering.

Referring to the “fake FBI,” Gingrich said on right-wing activist Charlie Kirk’s show, “You’ll notice they didn’t allow anyone on Trump’s side at Mar-a-Lago. So we have no idea whether they filed evidence or not.
