Trey Gowdy hit Merrick Garland with a reality check that Democrats don’t want to hear
The FBI raiding Donald Trump’s home on behalf of the Democrat Party is one of the worst catastrophes in American history.
It set off a political firestorm that has yet to be contained.
And Trey Gowdy hit Merrick Garland with a reality check that Democrats don’t want to hear.
The Department of Justice is hiding the truth about the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s home from the American people.
On Monday, the Justice Department filed a motion in court to prevent the release of the underlying affidavit the FBI used to obtain a search warrant to raid Donald Trump’s property.
The affidavit would allow the public to see the witnesses cited and evidence presented that justified this raid.
On Fox New Channel’s “Special Report,” former Congressman and former federal prosecutor Trey Gowdy told host Brett Baier that the Biden administration concealing the affidavit from the public was fueling mistrust and anger.
Gowdy also said the FBI’s misconduct and lies over the years in the Russian collusion hoax and other matters targeting Donald Trump eroded any credibility the Bureau had with Republicans.
“I need more facts. You know, that’s the curse of being a lawyer, Bret, is you want more facts. So with the predicate, the probable cause for the search last week, I’d like to see the affidavit. That’s one source of the anger. The other source of the anger, though, quite frankly, Brett, is six years of a belief on behalf of many Republicans that the blindfold has slipped and that Lady Justice is actually paying attention to who’s in front of her. And that’s not going to be fixed with releasing the affidavit. Oh, absolutely. Which is why they all have these big old black pens where you can redact informant information, grand jury information and ongoing other investigative information. I mean, look, we get redacted stuff all the time, Brett. So tell us what you can tell us,” Gowdy stated.
Gowdy’s comments echoed a post on Truth Social by Donald Trump where he slammed the Justice Department for refusing to release the affidavit after the FBI staged a politically motivated raid on Mar-a-Lago.
“There is no way to justify the unannounced RAID of Mar-a-Lago, the home of the 45th President of the United States (who got more votes, by far, than any sitting President in the history of our Country!), by a very large number of gun toting FBI Agents, and the Department of “Justice” but, in the interest of TRANSPARENCY, I call for the immediate release of the completely Unredacted Affidavit pertaining to this horrible and shocking BREAK-IN. Also, the Judge on this case should recuse!” Trump exclaimed.
Many Americans suspect the real reason the Department of Justice does not want to show the public the affidavit is because it would expose the fact that this raid is part of a politically motivated witch hunt against Donald Trump where the FBI is not actually investigating a specific criminal charge.
In reality, what the FBI and Department of Justice are doing is investigating Donald Trump and then deciding what crime to charge him with.
That is not how the American justice system is supposed to work.
