In a series of posts on the social media site GETTR, RealClearInvestigations journalist Paul Sperry reported that, according to his sources, some of the same people who saddled the former president with the phony 'Russian collusion' allegation and investigation took part in last week's unprecedented raid of his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Fla.
"DEVELOPING: Sources say the FBI agents and officials who were involved in the raid on former President Trump’s home work in the same CounterIntelligence Division of the FBI that investigated Trump in the Russiagate hoax and are actively under criminal investigation by Special Counsel John Durham for potentially abusing their power investigating Trump in the Russian fraud and therefore have a potential conflict of interest and should have been RECUSED from participating in this supposed 'espionage' investigation at Mar-a-Lago," Sperry wrote in his post.
He then posted: "BREAKING: Court records reveal that one of the FBI agents who signed the Mar-a-Lago search warrant also has been assigned to 'the investigation of criminal activity in and around the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2001.'"
Sperry, who was WorldNetDaily's first investigative reporter and who uncovered one scandal after another during then-President Bill Clinton's administration, went on to mock the Justice Department's stated reason for the Trump raid: Alleged violations of the Espionage Act:
Democrats are suddenly concerned about the security of nuclear secrets? Really? Recall how Dems and MSM didn't give a rip about "national security" when President Clinton: -- declassified tens of thousands of pages of secrets about our nuclear weapons program; -- transferred dual-use missile and other technology to China; and, -- kicked open the doors to Los Alamos and our other nuclear weapons labs to Chinese scientists. Beijing subsequently stole the designs to every nuclear warhead in the US arsenal, including MIRVs, according to the Cox Report, and now China can independently target Honolulu, Los Angeles and San Francisco with a single ICBM.
As for The Mar-a-Lago raid, Sperry said it smacked of the deep state's ongoing effort to 'get' Trump.
"This is Russiagate 2.0. They were busted trying to frame Trump as a traitor previously, and now they're launching a new witch hunt in a desperate attempt to suspend disbelief about their guilt in the last witch hunt. This new frame-up also serves as a way to dirty him up heading into 2024, seeing how their Jan. 6 pre-impeachment effort has failed," he wrote in a separate GETTR post.
Others are not only outraged by the raid but also concerned about it because they see the country heading in an authoritarian direction under the current regime.
That includes former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who filled in for Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday evening and discussed the raid that was essentially ordered by “the uni-party” in D.C.
“Now, whatever your views are on Donald Trump, there is no denying that the unprecedented raid on his Palm Beach home earlier this week has set our country on a dangerous new course, and there’s no turning back. The FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago changed the country that we grew up in," she said.
“We grew up believing that, ‘Hey our government will apply the law equally to all Americans, whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat.’ We’re seeing more and more that, that country no longer exists,” Gabbard explained further.
“Law enforcement at the highest levels of government, whether it’s the DOJ, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and now even the IRS have been weaponized to target the political opponents of the uni-party, the permanent Washington and the Biden regime,” Gabbard said.
Americans of both parties have completely lost control of our government, and that is very much in evidence as this raid proves once and for all. Unless we take it back, the coming authoritarianism won't be good for anyone.
