Two Republicans are NOT letting hard questions about that Mar-A-Lago raid go unanswered. Was the whole thing a coordinated setup orchestrated by elected Democrats?
In more rational times such a question would be somewhere between unthinkable and ridiculous. But we live in a day and age where the White House coordinated with schools to label concerned parents who showed up at School Board meetings ‘domestic terrorists’.
The DOJ was weaponized against parents for explicitly partisan purposes. Is it really so hard to believe that a Bureaucratic State that has been caught with its hand in the cookie jar innumerable times would have found this particular dirty trick to destroy Trump somehow beyond the pale compared to all the others?
Rep James Comer (ranking member in oversight) and Rep Jim Jordan (ranking member in judiciary) have cosigned a letter to Ms. Debra Steidel Wall, Acting Archivist of the US, National Archives And Records Administration (NARA).
With the DOJ hitting Mar-A-Lago with a police raid to seize documents at the center of a conflict between NARA and Trump, questions were raised about what, exactly, prompted the escalation of the conflict to such unprecedented levels.
There are some serious questions about the timeline that have the appearance of coordination between NARA and some elected Democrats with a political agenda.
Specifically, House Democrats inquired of NARA about whether they had yet made any criminal referral to the DOJ about the disputed documents. On that very same day, NARA did exactly as House Democrats had suggested, and made a criminal referral to the DOJ.
Furthermore, NARA has been refusing to respond to inquiries by Republicans about what role NARA has played in the Mar-A-Lago raid.
It was Feb 9th that Carolyn Maloney (Democrat) asked if NARA had been in contact with the DOJ about 15 specific boxes of interest. That just ‘happened’ to be the same day that a referral to the DOJ was the first domino to fall in what was to become DOJ action against President Trump culminating in a police raid on his home.
Their letter states plainly that this same-day referral raises serious concerns that NARA made the criminal referral due to direct pressure from the Democrats.
The letter goes on to say…
“In an October 7, 2022 letter responding to a previous Committee Republicans’ October 4, 2022 letter letter requesting documents about NARA’s interactions with Congressional Democrats, you wrote that NARA takes it’s role as a non-partisan agency very seriously, but at the same time you failed to provide the documents and other documentation requested. In order to understand whether and to what extent Congressional Democrats influenced and coordinated with NARA, please provide the documents previously requested in the October 4 2022 committee letter. Additionally, please provide the following documents, covering the time period between Jan 20, 2020 to present, no later than October 28, 2022.
They give some contact details and then pull rank by reminding them of the specific legislation that empowers them to exercise oversight over NARA.
If the Mar-A-Lago raid can be traced back to the political manipulation of elected Democrats? We’ve got a whole new level of open corruption playing out. Political corruption is nothing new, but it used to be the kind of thing that happened in the shadows, not in plain sight.
