(PresidentialInsider.com)- The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) raid on Mar-a-Lago was allegedly motivated by politics, according to a tweet from The Washington Post that was later removed.
According to the article’s original title, Garland swore to depoliticize justice. Then the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago,” the Post tweeted, which has since been removed.
The article delved into the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland’s (AG) claimed political reasons regarding the search and characterized the FBI raid as “very uncommon.”
“FBI’s search of Mar-a-Lago lands Merrick Garland in a political firestorm,” was the headline changed by The Post. The publication removed the tweet with the original headline.
They wrote: Clarification: A previous tweet of this story had a headline that has changed after publishing. We’ve deleted the tweet.
The initial headline received a wave of backlash from liberal-leaning figures and supporters of the raid.
-This is reprehensible. The Washington Post should issue an apology and a retraction.
Does @washpost have an ombudsman? -Claude Taylor, a former official in the Clinton administration.
The DOJ has been accused of staging the raid on former President Donald Trump’s private house by a number of politicians and media people, including some Democrats.
The DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives, or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of the January 6 investigations. – Former Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Tuesday.
According to CNN legal analysts Andrew McCabe and Paul Callan, the search for such papers “does not warrant” a raid. They hypothesized that there may be further evidence in the case that has not yet been made public.
In a statement released Monday announcing the raid, Trump charged the FBI and DOJ with engaging in “prosecutorial malpractice” to harm him politically.
Many Democrats are concerned that this event has martyred Trump, and it will have the opposite effect if damaging him was their goal.
The left is consistently reaping the results of unintended consequences. The long view is not their forté.
