Former President Donald Trump has appealed to the FBI with the same pledge he made to Americans during his 2016 campaign.
He would like the nation’s top federal law enforcement agency to help “Make America Great Again.”
Trump made his appeal on his Truth Social platform as he addressed the FBI’s actions in the past, including those of former Director James Comey — whom he fired — as well as the phony ‘Russiagate’ probe and his Democratic challenger, Hillary Clinton, whose campaign was blamed for fabricating the false narrative in the first place. Trump has also blasted the bureau for raiding his Palm Beach estate earlier this month, Newsmax reports.
“When are the great agents, and others, in the FBI going to say ‘we aren’t going to take it anymore,’ much as they did when James Comey read off a list of all of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s crimes, only to say that no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute,” the former president stated. “The wonderful people of the FBI went absolutely ‘nuts,’ so Comey had to backtrack and do a FAKE INVESTIGATION in order to keep them at bay. The end result, we won in 2016 (and did MUCH better in 2020!). But now the ‘left’ has lost their minds!!!”
“FBI, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump noted.
In another post afterward, the former president addressed recent reports claiming FBI whistleblowers have told some GOP lawmakers the bureau’s brass warned rank-and-file agents to slow-walk or ignore revelations found on Hunter Biden’s scandalous laptop.
“So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn’t, ‘Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election,'” he wrote.
“This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!” he added.
Trump’s posts come as a vital hearing in his case is coming up this week, with U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon in Florida signaling over the weekend that she has a “preliminary intent” to agree to his request to appoint a special master to oversee the FBI’s review of evidence and materials seized in the raid.
Cannon, in an order issued Saturday, said she wants responses by Trump and the Department of Justice to be filed before the hearing, scheduled for Thursday at 1 p.m. at the Paul G. Rogers U.S. Courthouse in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The DOJ must respond to Trump’s demand by Tuesday for the master, or a third-party attorney who would be responsible for filtering out privileged material that may have been seized in the search, and Trump must reply to the DOJ’s response Wednesday.
Over the weekend, the 45th president accused the Justice Department and FBI of “practicing election interference at the highest and most dishonest level our country has ever seen before” to include the 2022 midterms and the upcoming 2024 presidential election.
“They allowed spying on my campaign (and did nothing!), told Facebook and the media that the Laptop from Hell was ‘Russian disinformation’ (it wasn’t!), and now they don’t want anyone to read the words and meaning of the very important Presidential Records Act, under which I did nothing wrong, BUT THEY DID – RAID!” Trump posted.
