Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has filed articles of impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Joe Biden’s appointed attorney general has admitted he personally approved the decision to weaponize the FBI in a raid on President Donald Trump’s private home in Mar-a-Lago.
“I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant,” Garland admitted, proving that knowledge of the raid went to the highest levels of the Biden administration.
Garland failed to identify anything Trump did that was illegal. Earlier in the spring, Trump received a grand jury subpoena for classified documents and he fully cooperated with federal agents.

The articles of impeachment argue that Garland’s actions against Trump are “a blatant attempt to persecute a political opponent.”
Garland’s “effort to unseal the search warrant for the home of former President Donald J. Trump constitutes an attempt to intimidate, harass, and potentially disqualify a political challenger to President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.”
Although the articles of impeachment against Garland are unlikely to pass in Congress given the Democratic majority, this indicates that the FBI raid is quickly causing major blowback for Democrats.
Agents arrived to Mar-a-Lago on June 3rd and Trump was cooperative. Federal agents requested that an extra lock be added to secure the documents at his private storage locker at Mar-a-Lago.
Trump complied with the request. “In early June, the DOJ and FBI asked my legal representatives to put an extra lock on the door leading to the place where boxes were stored in Mar-a-Lago – We agreed,” Trump said.
“They were shown the secured area, and the boxes themselves. Then on Monday, without notification or warning, an army of agents broke into Mar-a-Lago, went to the same storage area, and ripped open the lock that they had asked to be installed.”
“A surprise attack, POLITICS, and all the while our Country is going to HELL!” Trump explained.
Following Garland’s remarks, Trump responded, “My attorneys and representatives were cooperating fully, and very good relationships had been established.”
“The government could have had whatever they wanted, if we had it. They asked us to put an additional lock on a certain area – DONE!” he continued.
“Everything was fine, better than that of most previous Presidents, and then, out of nowhere and with no warning, Mar-a-Lago was raided, at 6:30 in the morning, by VERY large numbers of agents, and even “safecrackers.” They got way ahead of themselves. Crazy!” – Trump said.
