A Donald Trump administration member alleged Tuesday that administration officials are determined to prevent a second Trump term as president.
Kash Patel, chief of staff to the Defense Secretary under Trump, said in a Newsmax interview the Justice Department has targeted Trump. They are allegedly pulling out all the stops to frustrate Trump’s ambition to return to the Oval Office.
The Epoch Times further reported:
”They want President Trump to not announce his candidacy for president, and that’s the end goal,” Patel, a National Security Council official under Trump, said in a Tuesday interview with Newsmax. ”Whether [it’s] through some form of impeachment or some criminal charge or a fake news disinformation campaign by the radical left-wing mafia, then that’s just as good to them.”
If Trump “wasn’t shut down by Russiagate, Jan. 6, [impeachment] one, impeachment two, Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton email scandal, Ukraine phone calls, then this certainly isn’t going to stop him,” Patel remarked of the raid, adding that he believes new documents released this week reveal that high-ranking officials within the Biden administration knew about the raid beforehand.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and other administration officials say President Joe Biden had no knowledge of the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago until Trump’s announcement of the raid on Aug. 8.
While Patel did not elaborate, he noted that “when I was a national security prosecutor working on high-level cases, we always informed the White House counsel’s office.”
”And lo and behold … we now see their own memorandum with the White House communicating to the Department of Justice about this investigation, about executive privilege, about waivers of attorney-client privilege, and Joe Biden weighing in personally,” Patel told Newsmax, citing a newly disclosed memo about the matter.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart gave the DOJ until Thursday to respond to his decision to unseal portions of the probable cause affidavit underlying the warrant authorizing FBI agents to search the former president’s Florida home.
