The Biden White House claimed on Tuesday that they did not know about the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home before it happened.
This is ridiculous on multiple levels. First, the people making this claim don’t deserve the benefit of the doubt anymore. They have lied to to the public too many times.
Second, does anyone believe that the Biden administration didn’t coordinate with the Department of Justice and even sign off on this? Really?
Finally, White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre tried to make it sound like the Department of Justice is completely separate from the White House. It isn’t. The DOJ falls under the discretion of the president.
PJ Media reports:
The White House Response to the Mar-a-Lago Raid Was a Disaster
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre answered press questions for the first time since the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago on Monday, and… well… it did not go well.
First, Jean-Pierre played dumb (or dumber than usual) in response to a question about when Joe Biden “found out” about the raid.
“Can you tell us anything more?” a reporter asked. “Was he watching the news? Was he scrolling Twitter? Did someone in his staff flag it for him?”
She gave a nervous, stammered response. “I can tell you this: he was not uh, aware of, of, of, uhh of… of… of the uh… what is it, the Mar-a-Lago raid? I don’t know what you guys are calling it—uh, uh… before it happened.”
Not very convincing, was it? But her worst moment was when Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy addressed the raid in a series of questions, eventually asking the money question: “Is this White House weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI against political opponents?”

Karine Jean-Pierre is a bad liar.
No one believes the Biden administration is innocent here.
