45th President Donald Trump reacted Monday on Truth Social wondering if the “fake witch hunt” is ending following an article from the Washington Times, who reported that former FBI Washington Field Office Assistant Special Agent in Charge Tim Thibault was escorted out of the bureau on Friday, amid whistleblower allegations that he showed political bias in his handling of politically sensitive investigations.
The Washington Times reported eyewitness accounts that “Mr. Thibault was seen exiting the bureau’s elevator last Friday escorted by two or three ‘headquarters-looking types.'” The article appears to have been updated and now states that Thibault “abruptly resigned” but that he was “forced to leave his post” and cites two unnamed former FBI officials, Ben Whedon at Just the News noted.
Whistleblowers alleged that Thibault concealed the partisan nature of evidence from FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland to secure their approval to open an investigation into former President Donald Trump in 2020 unrelated to the raid, according to information made public by Sen. Charles Grassley, Whedon also reported.
The public release of the affidavit that accompanied the search warrant revealed the warrant application relied heavily on information from news articles, including a CBS Miami piece titled “Moving Trucks Spotted At Mar-a-Lago” and a Breitbart News article in which former Trump adviser Kash Patel discussed the classified status of documents the bureau previously removed from the estate on behalf of the National Archives, Whedon further pointed out.
“The Agent In Charge of the FBI investigation got his information from CBS Fake News, which turned out to be, as usual, WRONG. Nobody said that to ‘MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN’ was going to be easy!” President Trump wrote on Truth Social Monday evening in regards to the affidavit.
“The fired agent who was just escorted out of the FBI headquarters is the person who got the FBI to do a Raid on a home, Mar-a-Lago, that has ‘stirred’ the World and created anger and hostility toward the FBI and DOJ the likes of which have perhaps never been seen in our Country before,” Trump expressed.
He continued, “The ‘Special Agent’ In Charge of the unprecedented and unnecessary Raid and Break In of Mar-a-Lago, who concealed the partisan nature of evidence to secure the FBI’s approval to open an investigation into the 45th President in the first place, was also involved in the hiding and suppressing from the Public and the Media, the ‘Laptop from Hell,’ the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, and so much more!”
“Wow, I assume this ends the Fake Witch Hunt? The ‘Special Agent’ In Charge has been removed from his post based on his concealing the partisan nature of evidence presented to secure the FBI’s corrupt investigation into the 45th President of the United States, me, which culminated in their unprecedented and unnecessary Raid and Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago,” Trump wrote.
“Thank you to the FBI for taking this important step toward sanity!” Trump concluded, attaching Ben Whedon’s report with his statement on Truth Social.
