Trump Allies Claim FBI Attempted Assassination During Mar-a-Lago Search

In a startling series of allegations, congressional allies of former President Donald Trump have claimed that the FBI attempted to assassinate Trump during a 2022 search of his Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach, Florida. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., took to X (formerly Twitter) to assert that the Justice Department and the FBI had plans to "assassinate" Trump. Similarly, Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., posted on X suggesting that President Joe Biden "ordered the hit on Trump at Mar-a-Lago."

On the day of the FBI search, Trump was not present at Mar-a-Lago. In response to the accusations, Trump wrote on Truth Social, stating that reports indicated Biden's DOJ had authorized the FBI to use deadly force during the Mar-a-Lago raid. Trump has frequently accused Biden of weaponizing the justice system against him and referred to newly unsealed court filings related to documents found at Mar-a-Lago after the FBI's search in 2022.

The FBI, however, has maintained that it followed standard procedure during the search, with a policy statement limiting the use of deadly force. No additional steps beyond the standard protocol were ordered. The Justice Department's policy allows law enforcement officers to use force only when no other safe alternatives exist, and deadly force is permitted only when an officer reasonably believes there is an imminent danger of death or serious injury.

The accusations emerged shortly after the court documents related to the Mar-a-Lago search were unsealed. Representatives for Greene and Gosar did not elaborate on their posts, and a Trump campaign spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

In related news, Lara Trump has been actively rebranding the Republican National Committee (RNC) in the image of her father-in-law, Donald Trump. Alongside Chairman Michael Whatley, Lara Trump took the reins of the RNC in March, merging the GOP and the Trump campaign into a single operation. This strategic alignment is aimed at ensuring Republican victories in upcoming elections, as stated by Trump campaign spokesman Brian Hughes.

Despite criticisms that the focus on the presidential election could detract from state and local races, Lara Trump dismissed these concerns, stating that the restructuring supports candidates at all levels. Lara Trump has taken a very public role, including television interviews and appearances on right-wing media, to bolster the party's efforts.

The RNC has seen a significant improvement in fundraising under Lara Trump's leadership, raising $76 million in April and $65.6 million in March, compared to $10.6 million in February. This increase reflects changes in donation limits after Trump became the presumptive nominee in March. The financial support is crucial as Trump continues to spend campaign donations on legal fees, facing federal and state criminal charges related to the 2020 election and classified documents retention.

Lara Trump is also advocating for Republicans to adopt mail-in voting, despite skepticism from Trump and his supporters. Her goal remains clear: to ensure Donald Trump becomes the 47th president of the United States. With her pugilistic politics and brash management style, Lara Trump is reshaping the RNC in a manner reminiscent of her father-in-law's approach.

Conservative Bias:

It's absolutely outrageous! Once again, the radical left has weaponized the federal government to the point of attempting an assassination on former President Trump. These baseless claims by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Rep. Paul Gosar reveal the depths to which Biden's DOJ will sink to eliminate political opponents. The FBI, supposedly neutral, is nothing but a puppet for the liberal agenda, willing to use deadly force against a former president. The left's obsession with destroying Trump knows no bounds, and now, they are even willing to rewrite history and manipulate the justice system to achieve their sinister goals. But fear not, because Lara Trump is stepping up, reshaping the RNC with the same vigor and determination as her father-in-law. Despite the left's relentless attacks, the Trump family is ensuring that the GOP remains strong and focused on victory. The massive fundraising success under Lara's leadership is a testament to the unwavering support for Trump and his vision for America. The left can continue their smear campaigns and legal witch hunts, but the American people are rallying behind Trump, ready to make him the 47th president of the United States. The liberal elites and their media cronies can try all they want, but they will never silence the voice of true patriots.

Liberal Bias:

The sheer audacity of the far-right is on full display as they concoct yet another baseless conspiracy theory to distract from their own failures and corruption. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Rep. Paul Gosar's absurd claims that the FBI attempted to assassinate Trump during a lawful search are nothing more than a desperate attempt to incite fear and division. This is the same FBI that has repeatedly shown restraint and adherence to protocol, even in the face of unprecedented obstruction from Trump and his cronies. Meanwhile, Lara Trump is busy turning the RNC into a personal fiefdom for her father-in-law, prioritizing his legal defense over genuine political strategy. The RNC's fundraising surge is not a sign of support but a reflection of the GOP's descent into a cult of personality, where loyalty to Trump trumps all else. Lara's push for mail-in voting is a hypocritical reversal, revealing the GOP's willingness to adopt any tactic if it serves their power-hungry agenda. The Trump family's stranglehold on the Republican Party is a dangerous development, threatening the integrity of our democratic processes. As Trump faces multiple criminal charges, the GOP's focus should be on rebuilding trust and integrity, not doubling down on the divisive and destructive tactics that have brought our nation to the brink. The American people deserve leaders who prioritize the country over personal vendettas and legal escapades.
