FBI Authorized Deadly Force Against Donald Trump For Mar-A-Lago Raid!

Written by Samuel Thompson.

Newly unsealed documents in the case reveal that the FBI authorized the use of deadly force during its August 2022 raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach.

This startling information comes from a Trump motion to suppress evidence gathered during the FBI’s “unconstitutional” raid. Trump’s lawyers filed the motion in February, and Judge Aileen Cannon had it unsealed Tuesday. The motion highlighted the FBI’s “operations order” for the Mar-a-Lago raid, which contained a “Policy Statement” regarding the “Use Of Deadly Force.” This statement authorized FBI agents to use deadly force “when necessary.”

The policy even allowed the FBI to “engage” with Trump’s Secret Service guards, raising serious concerns about the potential for violence during the raid.

The Reaction to the Policy

“Recall who authorized the raid: Merrick Garland. The FBI risked the lives of Donald Trump, his family, his staff, and Mar-a-Lago guests for a publicity stunt to make it look like Trump stole national security files,” said reporter Julie Kelly, who first reported on the documents.

However, former FBI agent Kyle Seraphin downplayed the new information. He said the “policy statement” flagged by Trump’s lawyers is typical for executing search warrants. Still, the implications of such a policy being in place for a high-profile raid on a former president are concerning.

Meanwhile, Judge Cannon has paused the classified documents case until several pre-trial issues can be settled. Earlier this month, Cannon vacated a May 20 trial date and set deadlines for multiple pre-trial hearings. But the judge said it was too soon to set a new trial date, especially with issues pending regarding the Classified Information Procedures Act.

Trump’s Legal Battle Continues

Trump has pleaded not guilty to 40 felony counts that allege he kept sensitive military documents, shared them with people who didn’t have security clearance, and tried to dodge the government’s attempts to get them back. Trump has repeatedly said that the civil and criminal charges he faces are politically motivated prosecutions designed to keep him from returning to the White House.

Trump is gearing up for a rematch in November with President Joe Biden. As this case unfolds, it’s clear that the legal battles and political maneuvering surrounding Trump will continue to dominate headlines.

Our Take

The authorization of deadly force for the Mar-a-Lago raid is a grave concern. The FBI’s actions, sanctioned by Merrick Garland, put lives at risk unnecessarily. This raid, which many view as a publicity stunt, underscores the extent to which political motivations can drive law enforcement actions. Such measures should alarm the public, as they represent a significant overreach of power and a threat to personal safety and civil liberties.

The case against Trump continues to highlight the political divide in America. With Trump preparing for a potential rematch against Biden, it is essential to scrutinize the motivations and actions of those in power. Politically motivated prosecutions undermine the integrity of our justice system and erode public trust. The use of deadly force in this context is particularly egregious and should be condemned.

The American public deserves transparency and accountability from its leaders and law enforcement agencies. The raid on Mar-a-Lago, coupled with the authorization of deadly force, raises critical questions about the abuse of power and the politicization of our justice system. It is vital to hold those responsible accountable and ensure that such overreach does not happen again.
