New FBI Shocker: FBI Was Authorized to Use Deadly Force in Mar-a-Lago Raid

New FBI Shocker: FBI Was Authorized to Use Deadly Force in Mar-a-Lago Raid

This Tuesday afternoon, May 21, 2024, that dedicated public servant and reporter, Julie Kelly, is going through documents which Judge Aileen Cannon has ordered unsealed in the Justice Department’s bogus Espionage Act case against former President Donald Trump. The headline Kelly released is that Attorney General Merrick Garland authorized the FBI raid agents to use “deadly force,” if necessary, in retrieving classified documents, national defense information, and information subject to the Presidential Records Act from the home of the 45th President of the United States.   Kelly asks, appropriately, “What country is this?

FBI Authorized Use of Deadly Force During Mar-a-Lago Raid
Newly unsealed documents in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s espionage case against Donald Trump demonstrate the FBI’s plans to use deadly force--even if the former president arrived at the scene.

The same document trove which Kelly is examining shows the FBI ransacking the bedrooms of former first lady Melania Trump, and the Trumps’ son, Barron Trump. Donald Trump was not present on the day of the raid in Florida, but the raid plan includes discussion of how to engage with him and his Secret Service protective crew should he show up. The raid planners also notified local hospitals of the possibility of casualties.

In case you doubt the intentions of Merrick Garland and his government gangsters, Judge Cannon’s unsealing of documents the government wanted hidden, has already revealed that the infamous photograph of alleged classified documents on the floor of Mar-a-Lago was totally fake. The FBI raid party brought the classified folders to the raid for purposes of setting up the photograph.

This conduct reminds me, painfully, of the FBI raid and aborted assassination plot against America’s 20th Century genius, Lyndon LaRouche, Jr. That plot also unfolded under the pretext of a gigantic FBI and state law enforcement search and seizure operation and raid conducted in Leesburg, Virginia, on October 6, 1986. There were armored personnel carriers, helicopters, and a force of 400 law enforcement agents, all deployed to recover financial documents from what LaRouche’s attorney, Ramsey Clark, accurately characterized as “book people.” 

As Loudoun County Sheriff’s Deputy Donald Moore confided to an FBI informant years later, the plan was to use the initial “shock and awe” raid to develop whatever probable cause could be found to raid LaRouche’s then residence just outside Leesburg, provoke a firefight with his security crew, and, ultimately, “take out LaRouche.” Friends of LaRouche sent a telegram to President Reagan urging that he intervene as reporters gathered along with Ninja clad cops outside LaRouche’s residence in the early morning hours of October 7, 1986. The TV broadcasts were blaring that a raid on the residence was imminent when suddenly the gathered force faded away. Later court proceedings revealed that the FBI lead agents had left the search on the evening of October 6th to travel to the U.S. Attorneys’ office in the Eastern District of Virginia in Alexandria. Their proposal was to obtain and execute a second search on LaRouche’s residence. The court testimony indicated that something or someone had worked through renowned AUSA Justin Williams, the former chief of the Eastern District’s Criminal Division, to abort the planned deadly raid.
