The raid performed by the FBI is unprecedented in the history of the United States and being such an unusual circumstance there is many people who doubt foreknowledge of the raid didn’t reach the highest levels of government. Fox News reporter Peter Doocy raised this very question towards President Biden who responded. “I didn’t have any advance notice. None. Zero. Not one single bit.” Biden vehemently answered Doocy while making a zero with a hand gesture. Source: Daily Wire
Since the raid the DOJ has released the redacted version of the affidavit for the public. The heavily redacted affidavit has since been jokingly likened to a Rorshach inkblot test. source The document leaves much to be desired as to why the former President’s home was raided by the FBI. It would be logical to assume that there must be something extremely important the FBI knew about to break away from precedent and execute such a move. Unfortunately, the affidavit in its redacted form answers none of that and has led many to question if this was necessary at all.
One of the people questioning the necessity of the FBI’s raid is former President Trump himself (no surprise there). Trump has filed a civil lawsuit asking U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon of the Southern District of Florida to appoint a Special Master to oversee the FBI as they go through the items that were obtained during the raid of his residence. He is asking for any documents not related to the warrant to be returned. Judge Cannon was nominated in 2020 by President Trump.
