US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday delivered remarks on the unprecedented raid on President Donald Trump’s Florida home.
This is the first time Garland has addressed the FBI raid on Trump’s residence.
Nearly 3 dozen federal agents descended on Mar-a-Lago on Monday and rummaged through Trump’s belongings without the former president’s lawyers present.
Garland basically admitted the feds have nothing on President Trump. He could not identify ANYTHING the president did that was illegal.
Merrick Garland also admitted he personally approved the raid on Trump’s home.
“I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant,” Garland said.

President Trump received a subpoena for documents in the spring before Brandon’s FBI raided Mar-a-Lago this week.
According to John Solomon at Just the News, Trump received a grand jury subpoena for classified documents and fully cooperated with federal agents who showed up to his Florida residence on June 3rd.
John Solomon reported that Trump was cooperative with the federal agents and even added an extra lock to secure the documents in his private storage locker at his Mar-a-Lago residence.
Trump corroborated this report in a post to his Truth Social page.
“In early June, the DOJ and FBI asked my legal representatives to put an extra lock on the door leading to the place where boxes were stored in Mar-a-Lago – We agreed. They were shown the secured area, and the boxes themselves. Then on Monday, without notification or warning, an army of agents broke into Mar-a-Lago, went to the same storage area, and ripped open the lock that they had asked to be installed. A surprise attack, POLITICS, and all the while our Country is going to HELL!” Trump posted to Truth Social.
Trump voluntarily gave the federal agents the requested documents.
Two months later, Brandon’s jackbooted thugs showed up to Trump’s residence with machine guns and raided the property – ALL WITH MERRICK GARLAND’S APPROVAL.
Trump fired off another post to his Truth Social page following Merrick Garland’s remarks.
“My attorneys and representatives were cooperating fully, and very good relationships had been established. The government could have had whatever they wanted, if we had it. They asked us to put an additional lock on a certain area – DONE! Everything was fine, better than that of most previous Presidents, and then, out of nowhere and with no warning, Mar-a-Lago was raided, at 6:30 in the morning, by VERY large numbers of agents, and even “safecrackers.” They got way ahead of themselves. Crazy!” – Trump said Thursday afternoon.
