(JustPatriots.com)- Just the News reported on Monday that, despite claiming that it had absolutely nothing to do with it, it appears the Biden White House did play a role in the Justice Department’s criminal probe into former President Trump that resulted in the FBI raid.
Just the News obtained memos and letters that reveal the White House’s involvement in the ongoing discussions between the Trump camp and the FBI, DOJ, and National Archives.
In one memo in May, then-White House Deputy Counsel Jonathan Su informed the National Archives that President Biden wouldn’t object to waiving Trump’s claims to executive privilege.
This memo was written shortly after the Trump camp had already returned 15 boxes of documents from Mar-a-Lago to the National Archives.
According to Just the News, this decision by President Biden not to object to waiving Trump’s executive privilege claim is what “opened the door for the DOJ to get a grand jury to issue a subpoena” forcing Trump to return all other documents still in his possession.
Throughout the spring, memos and emails were flying like bats between the various agencies and the White House before the Justice Department decided to take the “unprecedented step” of raiding Mar-a-Lago.
In another letter obtained by Just the News, the acting National Archivist Debra Steidel Wall informed Trump’s legal team on May 10 of the White House Counsel’s Office’s involvement in the ongoing controversy.
Steidel Wall notes in her letter that the White House Counsel informed her that “President Biden defers to my determination” over whether or not she decides to uphold Trump’s “purported ‘protective assertion of executive privilege.’” She adds that she had decided not to honor Trump’s privilege claim.
Given the White House’s involvement in the ongoing battle between the National Archives and Trump that led to the August 8 raid on Mar-a-Lago, how can the White House repeatedly claim that it had “no advanced knowledge” of what the Justice Department and FBI planned to do?
