The White House was likely briefed before the FBI’s shocking raid on former President Trump’s private residence at Mar-A-Lago.
As The Daily Caller reports:
The top levels of the Biden administration, including the White House and officials leading the Department of Justice (DOJ), were likely aware of the Mar-a-Lago raid and may have even moved the warrant forward, two retired FBI agents told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The retired FBI agents said that the White House likely received a briefing before the FBI conducted the raid. However, a White House spokesperson told the DCNF they “did not have notice of the reported action,” referring the DCNF to the DOJ, which declined to comment.
“So an event like yesterday’s is orchestrated, and particularly because it’s done against the former president. It’s orchestrated at the highest levels,” retired FBI Agent Robert Chacon, who focused on criminal, counterterrorism and forensic matters, told the DCNF.
“So that means the FBI director, it means the attorney general or his Deputy Attorney General was personally involved in this. There’s just no way I can believe that this warrant wouldn’t have been secured or that action wouldn’t have been taken without approval from the highest levels,” he added.
The retired special agent also speculated that the White House counsel may also have been briefed before the raid.
