(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The partisan Attorney General Merrick Garland who leads the Justice Department and works under the behest of the Biden administration’s political agenda could potentially charge the former president with more than just classified documents. Garland may reportedly file two rounds of charges against Trump.
Alleged evidence discovered in the Justice Department’s investigation into the former president’s role in the 2020 election and the January 6 Capitol riot could reportedly give the attorney general the opportunity to criminally charge Trump, along with the classified documents that the FBI allegedly found in their August 8 raid of his estate in Mar-a-Lago.
18 U.S. Code § 2071 reportedly disqualifies individuals who “willfully and unlawfully” remove official records from all U.S. offices. Presidents are only allowed to take official documents “of a purely private or nonpublic character” from the White House under the Presidential Records Act of 1978.
Barack Obama allegedly set the path for the FBI to raid Trump when he reversed a 2001 guidance by George W. Bush that stated that an incumbent president could not override a former president’s claim to executive privilege over documents. This piece of information allegedly suggests that President Biden knew of the raid beforehand, contrary to the official narrative of the White House.
The FBI raided the former president after Trump was in contact with the National Archives, the federal agency that archives official documents. He reportedly gave documents that they requested over to them and, according to the former president’s legal team, he was completely compliant. The raid, approved by the attorney general, followed a whistleblower allegedly coming to the FBI to inform them that Trump had classified documents at his residence, a matter that the former president claims was never unknown to the National Archives and which was being resolved.
The FBI then raided his estate and demanded that the cameras in the home be turned off, according to his lawyers. They searched the residence for nine hours but mostly stayed confined to a couple rooms. After the Justice Department was required to release the affidavit, they did so with redactions covering nearly all of the documents.
