A document released by the US District Court for Florida’s Southern District indicates that the August 5 FBI search warrant to raid former president Donald Trump’s house was actually initiated in court by an FBI agent, whose name has been withheld from the public. The application for the warrant was signed by an FBI Special Agent who, “under the penalty of perjury” had ”reason to believe” there was “willful retention of national defense information,” “Concealment or removal of government records,” and “Obstruction of federal investigation.” It would appear that the same agent signed the affidavit that was the genesis of the FBI raid.
Furthermore, the request to withhold from the public all the documents associated with the motion, affidavit, and the search warrant was made by United States Attorney Juan Antonio Gonzalez and a redacted “Assistant United States Attorney.” That motion to seal the documents states that “The United States submits that there is good cause because the integrity of the ongoing investigation might be compromised, and evidence might be destroyed. The United States further requests that, pursuant to this Court’s procedures for Highly Sensitive Documents, all documents associated with this investigation not be filed on the Court’s electronic docket because filing these materials on the electronic docket poses a risk to safety given the sensitive nature of the material contained herein.”
There have been many conspiracy theories around what the FBI did, who was on the inside helping the FBI, whether documents were planted, and so forth. These are just distractions from the main issue. The FBI, according to this document, originated the infamous affidavit for the search, petitioned for the search warrant and conducted the raid. This is no different than when President Obama and the Hillary Clinton campaign used fabricated documents to obtain secret authorization from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to spy on Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The documents raise no certainty that any law was broken nor whether any illegal documents were being held by Trump.
This government action is against a private citizen who the political party in power and its accomplices want to see destroyed. It’s a show of the absolute power of government despite Constitutional guarantees of due process and protection of privacy. These documents insinuate wrong doing and generated another news cycle of headlines that Trump was hiding something illegal. Ephesians 6:12 says, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” The next verse offers an action: “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” It’s high time to do all and to stand against this evil because it can happen to you, too.
