“Biden,” Greene wrote in the post. [Department of Justice (DOJ)] “The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the FBI are planning to assassinate President Trump and they’ve given it the green light,” she said. post Trump said on Truth Social:[President] The Biden Justice Department authorized the FBI to use lethal force in the illegal and unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid.”

In a fundraising email sent the day after his Truth Social post, the former president claimed Biden was “prepared and ready to get rid of me,” misrepresenting standard wording in documents prepared as law enforcement prepared to search Mar-a-Lago for classified records.

The former president’s comments referred to a policy statement written by law enforcement agencies in court documents outlining search procedures, which authorizes the use of lethal force “only when necessary,” including when someone poses “imminent danger of death or serious injury to the police officer or other persons.”

“This search, as with all search warrants, followed standard procedures, including standard policy statements limiting the use of lethal force,” the FBI said in a statement.

“No one has instructed us to take any additional steps and no deviations from standards have been made in this case,” the agency said.

The fight reached the courts last week when Special Counsel Jack Smith’s office filed legal papers seeking a gag order against Trump following the comments. That request was denied this week by Judge Eileen Cannon.

“Do we really believe, as De Niro said, that Donald Trump wants to destroy New York City, destroy America and destroy the world?” Loeb said.

Rove also said that to win the next election, it would be beneficial for Trump to talk about and focus on issues like immigration and inflation, rather than “irrelevant things just to rile up the public,” adding that “the public is already primed and ready for each candidate.”
