In a stunning revelation, new documents have been released that reveal the Biden White House directly coordinated with the FBI to set up the raid on former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
The documents, which were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by a conservative watchdog group, show that the White House was intimately involved in the planning and execution of the raid.
According to the documents, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain was in direct communication with FBI Director Christopher Wray in the days leading up to the raid. Klain reportedly instructed Wray to expedite the raid and ensure that it was carried out with maximum force.
The documents also show that the White House provided the FBI with detailed information about Giuliani’s whereabouts and schedule, allowing agents to time the raid for maximum impact.
The raid, which took place in late April of last year, was part of a wider investigation into Giuliani’s role in the Ukraine scandal that led to Trump’s impeachment. Giuliani was accused of pressuring Ukrainian officials to investigate Joe Biden, then a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Giuliani has denied any wrongdoing and has accused the Biden administration of using the raid as a political tool to discredit him and his former client.
The revelations are likely to fuel already simmering tensions between the Biden and Trump camps. Trump himself has repeatedly accused the Biden administration of political persecution and has called for an investigation into the raid on Giuliani’s home and office.
Meanwhile, Democrats have defended the raid as a necessary step in the ongoing investigation into Trump’s alleged abuses of power.
The White House has yet to comment on the new documents, but they are sure to raise serious questions about the role of the Biden administration in the investigation into Trump and his associates.
Many are calling for a full investigation into the matter, and some Republicans have even suggested that the revelations could lead to calls for impeachment.
For now, however, it remains to be seen how the Biden administration will respond to the latest bombshell in what is sure to be a long and contentious investigation.
