The White House is once again relying on the collective stupidity of Americans in the hopes of obfuscating the truth about the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s private residence.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre keeps insisting that Joe Biden had no prior knowledge of the raid while also claiming he’s in control of his entire administration — so which is it?
The idea that Biden, the U.S. President, is unaware of the goings on in his own cabinet proves he’s either medically incapacitated or Jean-Pierre is flat-out lying.
Honestly, it could go either way. Joe Biden never appears particularly aware of his surroundings, nor does he seem mentally fit enough to make such high-level decisions about a former sitting president.
Joe Biden’s press secretary said no one at the White House was briefed or granted an advance notice of the FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, an unprecedented step that has drawn intense public scrutiny.
The search Monday night set off a political earthquake as federal agents stepped up their investigation of the former president in a raid that is believed to be connected to Trump’s possible mishandling of classified materials. Top Biden administration officials have pushed back on the suggestion that the case could be politically motivated, asserting a firm line between the administration’s political interests and the Justice Department.
“The president was not briefed, he was not aware of it. No one at the White House was given a heads-up,” Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Tuesday.

She said Biden “has been very clear” that the Justice Department operates independently from his administration.
Meanwhile, Jean-Pierre also refused to discuss any evidence Biden was aware of that would justify an FBI raid on his private residence.

The National Archives removed 15 boxes containing presidential records from Mar-a-Lago in early 2022, according to a February statement.
Asked whether Attorney General Merrick Garland had signed off on the warrant to search the former president’s home, whether Biden and his top prosecutor spoke following the raid, and if Biden believes the Justice Department acted accordingly, Jean-Pierre declined to say, referring questions to the Justice Department.
DOOCY: “Is this White House weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI against political opponents?”

Trump on Monday said the FBI “raided” his Mar-a-Lago property, stating that federal agents had breached his safe.
It’s now completely apparent (if it wasn’t already) that Joe Biden and/or his handlers have ordered the DOJ to unleash politically motivated attacks against the Former President and his allies. Jean-Pierre is co-signing these acts, as is every Democrat that applauds the raid. But don’t worry.
