FBI Turned Off Security Cameras During Mar-a-Lago Raid – Legal Experts Weigh In

Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team filed a response to President Trump’s motion to dismiss the classified documents case based on spoliation of evidence seized by agents during the 2022 raid of Mar-a-Lago.

According to the new motion filed, the FBI turned off security cameras at Mar-a-Lago out of “concern for agent safety.”

Biden’s FBI raided Mar-a-Lago in August 2022 and seized boxes of records from Trump’s Florida estate.

Machine-gun-toting agents descended on Mar-a-Lago in August 2022 and by November Biden’s DOJ appointed a special counsel to investigate the documents stored at the Florida residence.

“At approximately 9:55 am, the CCTV servers were turned off to prevent recording, at the request of the FBI, out of concern for agent safety,” Jack Smith’s prosecutors wrote. “At approximately 10:20 am, recording resumed at the request of Trump attorneys.”

Former Gorsuch clerk Mike Davis said this is a huge problem for Jack Smith’s top prosecutor Jay Bratt.

Jordan Sekulow and the team at ACLJ weighed in on the FBI’s decision to turn off Trump’s security cameras during the raid.

“During the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago, agents reportedly stopped the security cameras on the property, raising concerns about transparency and procedural conduct. The decision to disable the cameras has sparked controversy and speculation over what occurred during the search. This action is likely to become a focal point in the ongoing legal and political debates surrounding the Jack Smith Special Counsel Trump Trial,” the ACLJ said on Tuesday.

    FBI know that violation the constitution rights of TRUMP! He a PRIVATE CITIZEN AND THEY HAD NO RIGHTS TURNING OFF SECURITY CAMERA. THEY WERE TRYING TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM BEING SEEN WITH PLANTED CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS IN TRUMP HOME! There was no REASON TO SEARCH TRUMP HOME. HE HAD CLEARANCE TO DE-CLASSFIED DOCUMENTS. WHICH JOE BIDEN DID NOT HAVE AUTHORITY TO HAVE ANY CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS AT HIS HOME! OR EVEN AS A SENATE! WHERE WERE THE CHARGE AGAINST BIDEN FOR STEALING CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS AS A SENATE? MAN SHOULD NEVER BEEN PRESIDENT. BUT DYING IN A PRISON CELLS!

    This was the beginning of the unannounced, pre-dawn Gestapo goon squad raids. Now, you hear about them weekly.

    Welcome to Germany, 1935…

    “Security cameras shut off for their safety”? An utterly ridiculous statement. Then why have them at all? Why has (almost) every police department bought them, (w/ matching Federal funds)? We read this after reading that the police who arrested the pro golfer will be ‘disciplined’ because he DIDN’T have his camera on. Make up your mind(s) (ASSHOLES)!
