President Joe Biden said that he had no prior knowledge of the federal agents who executed a search on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence earlier this month.
‘I didn’t have any advanced notice. None. Zero. Not one single bit,’ Biden said
Biden made the declaration in response to a question from Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, who asked during a televised press conference: “How much advance notice did you have of the FBI’s plan to search Mar-a-Lago?” Biden responded: “I didn’t have any advance notice. None. Zero. Not one single bit.”
The White House has again and again denied any prior expertise of plans for the 8 August search of the ex-president’s domestic, at some point of which FBI retailers retrieved 11 containers of files, which include information bearing markings denoting them as classified “top secret” or as “sensitive compartmented data” one of the highest tiers of class that is commonly reserved for nuclear secrets and techniques or intelligence sources and methods.
Since taking office, Mr. Biden has made a point of keeping an arms-length separation between the Department of Justice’s function in conducting criminal investigations and prosecutions, and his role as head of the government department of the American government.
Even though Joe Biden and the White House have said multiple times that they had no part in the search of Donald Trump’s home or the investigation into whether he broke the law by keeping classified documents after he became an ex-president, Republicans, and people who support Trump say without any proof that Merrick Garland and the Department of Justice are just getting revenge for Biden.
