Marjorie Taylor Greene Alleges Biden Sought Trump's Assassination During FBI Raid

Outrage erupted following allegations from Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene that President Joe Biden had plans to assassinate Donald Trump during the 2022 FBI raid at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

According to Daily Mail, Greene's claims surfaced after an unsealed court filing detailed the FBI's preparedness to use deadly force during the raid. Rep. Greene reacted vehemently, suggesting that President Biden, his Department of Justice, and the FBI were ready to kill Trump. She expressed her thoughts on social media platform X, alleging that the DOJ and FBI had intentions to assassinate the former president.

FBI's Preparedness Sparks Reaction

The FBI's readiness to employ deadly force during the Mar-a-Lago raid was disclosed in a court filing unsealed on Tuesday. This revelation garnered vehement reactions from both Marjorie Taylor Greene and Donald Trump.

Trump, responding to the news on Truth Social, condemned the raid as illegal and unconstitutional. He further accused Biden of posing a threat to democracy. According to Trump, the raid not only violated legal norms but also displayed Biden's unfitness for office.

The FBI defended its actions, asserting that the agency followed standard protocol. “The FBI followed standard protocol in this search as we do for all search warrants,” the statement read, emphasizing that deadly force was only a last resort under specific guidelines.

Trump Responds With Fundraising Efforts

On August 8, 2022, during the Mar-a-Lago raid, Trump was at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. The raid, lasting nearly ten hours, seized hundreds of classified documents from Trump’s estate.

Trump capitalized on the FBI's disclosure by sending a fundraising email using alarming language about the authorization to shoot him. This tactic highlighted his continued narrative of victimization and persecution.

Meanwhile, Greene questioned the extent of the permissions behind the FBI raid. "Were they going to shoot [Secret Service] and then Pres Trump, Melania, and Barron too???" Greene queried, emphasizing her concerns regarding potential threats to Trump’s family during the raid.

Political Repercussions and Criticism

Rep. Greene criticized Republican Speaker of the House Mike Johnson for funding the DOJ and FBI despite the controversy. She described his actions as "unforgivable" and claimed he handed control to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Greene's attempt to oust Speaker Johnson was thwarted by Democratic opposition. She voiced her disappointment, stressing that Johnson's funding actions had limited their ability to hold these agencies accountable.

Further, Greene suggested impeachment for FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland. She underscored that leadership should be held responsible for what she perceived as excessive and unjust measures.

Ongoing Legal Developments

Judge Howell criticized Trump for failing to account for the classified materials found in his residence. Classified documents were also discovered in a leased storage unit and other areas within Mar-a-Lago. Earlier this month, Judge Aileen Cannon postponed the trial concerning these classified documents indefinitely due to unresolved pre-trial issues. This delay underscores the ongoing and complex nature of Trump’s legal battles.

In conclusion, Marjorie Taylor Greene has accused the Biden administration of plotting to assassinate Donald Trump during the FBI's Mar-a-Lago raid. The unsealed court filing revealing the FBI's preparedness for deadly force catalyzed strong reactions from both Greene and Trump. The FBI continues to defend its actions as standard protocol, while Trump faces numerous legal challenges related to the mishandling of classified documents.
