45th President Donald J. Trump reacted Friday to the massive redacting of the federal affidavit which allegedly justified the August 8th FBI raid on his Mar-a Lago home, calling the move “total public-relations subterfuge” and evidence of a “WITCH HUNT!!!”
Nearly an hour after the heavily blacked-out document was made public, the 45th Commander-in-Chief proclaimed on his Truth Social site, “Affidavit heavily redacted!!!”
“Affidavit heavily redacted!!! Nothing mentioned on ‘Nuclear,’ a total public relations subterfuge by the FBI & DOJ, or our close working relationship regarding document turnover – WE GAVE THEM MUCH,” Trump wrote on Truth Social, referring to a report from the Washington Post, who claimed sensitive files about nuclear weapons were among those being sought.
Trump previously had called the Washington Post’s report a hoax and a continuation of the Trump-Russia collusion narrative that was peddled by legacy news outlets. “Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more. Same sleazy people involved,” Trump fired back on Truth Social August 12.
“Judge Bruce Reinhart should NEVER have allowed the Break-In of my home,” Trump said of the magistrate judge who signed off on the release of the heavily blacked-out affidavit.
“He recused himself two months ago from one of my cases based on his animosity and hatred of your favorite President, me,” he said, referring to a case involving Hillary Clinton. “What changed? Why hasn’t he recused himself on this case?”
The 45th President also posted a clip from a Friday interview with Lou Dobbs on “The Great American Show” podcast, in which Trump insisted he “did nothing wrong.”
“We were essentially attacked — we were broken into. They opened up safes, they brought safe crackers, and they brought many, many FBI agents in — all right before the midterms,” he said of the FBI raid. “This is a political attack on our country, and it’s a disgrace. And the people understand it. … They took things that they never should have that are privileged. … And it just never ends. It’s the same people, the same leaks. They leak to the same places. The same people doing the leaking. It’s a disgrace. Our country is a wreck.”
