On Monday night, the FBI executed a search warrant on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

A day after the raid, it was revealed that the search warrant was not related to any other investigation in to President Trump, including the ongoing investigation that the January 6th Committee is carrying out in the aftermath of the ‘Stop the Steal’ rally.

Senior officials at the Department of Justice have admitted that the raid backfired ‘spectacularly’ after high-ranking Republican officials and some Democratic politicians accused Merrick Garland of politicizing the Department of Justice.

On Thursday, Garland attempted to do damage control at a press conference.

During the press conference, he admitted that he ‘personally approved’ the decision to raid President Trump’s home.

Garland also defended the FBI’s integrity, saying that he would not “stand by silently” while their integrity is “unfairly attacked”.

Twitter users swiftly reacted to the press conference.

The Senior Editor at The Federalist, David Harsanyi, said that the general public has a good reason to distrust Garland’s integrity after he directed the FBI to investigate parents who were concerend about covid lockdowns and mask mandates in public schools.

Another user made a remark about Garland’s refusal to take questions, saying that “garland will not take any questions but you can learn more when his staff leaks to the new york times and cnn”

President Trump also responded to Garland’s press conference, saying that his attorney’s were ‘cooperating fully’ with the Department of Justice prior to the raid.

 

In Never Trumper land, liberal hysteric Jennifer Rubin tweeted yesterday that Merrick Garland does not ‘owe us any explanation’ over the Mar-a-Lago raid conducted on Monday, defending the DOJ’s initial decision to not unseal the search warrant.

Less than a day later, after Garland revealed in his press conference that he would file a motion to unseal the warrant, Rubin called his decision ‘brilliant’.
