On Thursday afternoon, Attorney General Merrick Garland held a very short press conference during which he admitted that he approved the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home.
He also claimed that the law is being applied evenly, but millions of Americans do not believe that.
People haven’t believed it for months, but the FBI Trump raid was the last straw for many.

AG Merrick Garland Says He ‘Personally Approved’ Trump Search Warrant; Claims Rule of Law Is Being Applied ‘Evenly’
Attorney General Merrick Garland said on Thursday that he “personally approved” the decision to seek a warrant for the FBI raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
“The department does not take such a decision lightly. Where possible, it is standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search and to narrowly scope any search that is undertaken,” Garland said in a statement delivered from the Department of Justice in Washington, DC.
“The search warrant was authorized by a federal court upon the required finding of probable cause,” he told reporters.
“Copies of both the warrant and the FBI property receipt were provided on the day of the search to the former President’s counsel who was on site during the search,” he stated.
Trump’s son Eric, and his lawyer Christina Bobb on Wednesday claimed that the agents refused to hand over the warrant.

Merrick Garland personally approved a search warrant to take down Joe Biden’s top political opponent.
This is a politically-motivated witch hunt.

Garland should resign, and so should anyone else who was involved in this.
