DOJ Conducts ‘Pre-Dawn Raid’ at Home of Former Trump DOJ Official – Opinion

My colleague Bonchie also shared the story about how the Biden administration was using federal law enforcement officers as a weapon. They served search warrants Wednesday against two top members of Nevada’s Republican Party including Michael McDonald.

His words were:

The weaponization of the FBI continues after what some would describe as Joe Biden’s personal police force seized the phone of a Nevada GOP leader on Wednesday. That report comes via 8 News Now, a local station in the state.

According to their sources, Michael McDonald was the Republican Chairman in Nevada. They seized his phone in relation to an “investigation” into the so-called “fake electors” scheme propagated after the 2020 election.

It also added that it reported on the news.

…[a]A second warrant of search was issued to James DeGraffenreid (state party secretary), who signed the document. However, FBI agents were unable to locate him Wednesday according sources.

It appears that wasn’t the end of the DOJ’s investigative work on Wednesday against Republicans.

Multiple sources who have direct knowledge say that federal agents entered the Virginia residence of Jeffrey Clark, a former Trump Justice Department official.

While it wasn’t clear what federal agencies carried out the search of the Lorton home, a neighbor saw the officials enter and depart the Lorton house after they arrived at the Lorton residence on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C., said they “can confirm there was law enforcement activity in that area yesterday,” but declined to comment on specific individuals or the nature of that activity.

What could have been the reason for this? Here’s what was on the “docket” for the House January 6 Committee Thursday:

On Thursday, the House panel investigating the Jan. 6 attack was expected to hear testimony from multiple former Justice Department officials with knowledge of Clark’s proposal of a plan to pressure states to invalidate Biden’s electoral victories after the 2020 election.

ABC News reached out the Clarke attorney, but was instead met by Russ Vought via a statement.

But Russ Vought, a former Trump White House official and the president of the Center for Renewing America, where Clark is now a senior fellow, said in a statement that “more than a dozen DOJ law enforcement officials searched Jeff Clark’s house in a pre-dawn raid, put him in the streets in his pajamas, and took his electronic devices.”

Vought’s statement continued:”The new era of criminalizing politics is worsening in the U.S. People, this is not America. It is time to end the weaponization of government. I will be clear. We stand by Jeff and so must all patriots in this country.”
