John Solomon reported Monday on leaked memos that revealed the Biden White House helped instigate the criminal investigation into Trump’s handling of documents.
They eliminated Trump’s executive privilege claims — which allowed for the DOJ to issue a subpoena against Trump.
That subpoena ultimately led to the raid.
The Biden White House worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archives to facilitate the investigation into Trump’s handling of documents, according to memos reviewed by investigative reporter John Solomon.
Joe Biden’s spokeswoman has repeatedly claimed Joe Biden had no knowledge of the raid and that he found out about it in the media.
According to the memos, the Biden White House instigated the criminal investigation by eliminating Trump’s claims to executive privilege.
Then-White House Deputy Counsel Jonathan Su had conversations with the FBI, DOJ, and National Archives in April.
The memos show then-White House Deputy Counsel Jonathan Su was engaged in conversations with the FBI, DOJ and National Archives as early as April, shortly after 15 boxes of classified and other materials were voluntarily returned to the federal historical agency from Trump’s Florida home.
By May, Su conveyed to the Archives that President Joe Biden would not object to waiving his predecessor’s claims to executive claims, a decision that opened the door for DOJ to get a grand jury to issue a subpoena compelling Trump to turn over any remaining materials he possessed from his presidency.
The machinations are summarized in several memos and emails exchanged between the various agencies in spring 2022, months before the FBI took the added unprecedented step of raiding Trump’s Florida compound with a court-issued search warrant.
Donald Trump responded on Truth Social today. Trump called the poly a “a political NO, NO!”
He blasted the Biden administration for saying they knew nothing about it.
The White House stated strongly that they were NOT INVOLVED, and knew absolutely nothing about, the political Witch Hunt going on with me, & that they didn’t know anything at all about the Break-In of Mar-a-Lago. This was strongly reiterated again & again. WRONG! Remember, these are the people who spied on my campaign, denied it, & got caught. Through the great reporting of John Solomon (Fake Pulitzer Prize?), documents reveal they knew everything, in fact led the charge – a political NO, NO!
