Biden administration WAS involved in authorizing Mar-a-Lago raid, report from Trump aide’s legal group claims: Emails suggest FBI accessed ex-President’s records with White House’s help
- America First Legal claims Biden White House and his DOJ ‘abused their power’
- Related to conservative group’s claims White House was involved in the FBI raid ‘I called it the morning of the Mar-a-Lago raid. Biden knew everything!!!’ Trump’s middle son Eric Trump tweeted in response to the new report
A legal group run by former Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller is claiming that their independent probe found the Biden administration was involved in giving authorization for the FBI to raid Mar-a-Lago last year.
America First Legal says results of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request found the bureau initially obtained access to Trump’s records through a ‘special access request’ from Biden’s White House.
‘I called it the morning of the Mar-a-Lago raid. Biden knew everything!!!’ Trump’s middle son Eric Trump tweeted in response to the new report.
The latest revelations from the conservative world contradict claims from the Biden administration that they found out about the August 8, 2022 raid on social media.
New claims from America First Legal, run by longtime Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller, says that a FOIA request response proves that President Joe Biden’s White House was involved in authorizing the FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s home last year

America First Legal, self-dubbed as a ‘long-awaited answer to the ACLU,’ is calling on the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to turn over materials related to Biden’s involvement in the raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
In August 2022, the FBI conducted a raid on Trump’s residence in Palm Beach, Florida to obtain documents and materials he took from the White House when they were required to be handed over to the National Archives for preservation.
Many of the documents had classified markings on them.
Attorney General Merrick Garland held a press conference days after the raid confirming he had personally approved the law enforcement action.
America First Legal claims that Biden was also specifically involved in allowing the raid to be carried out and slammed it as a ‘politically motivated’ move.
These claims are only further justified after such classified documents were also found at the homes of both former Vice President Mike Pence and President Joe Biden – but no FBI raids were conducted on their residences.

America First Legal senior counselor Reed Rubinstein said in a statement Monday: ‘The evidence further suggests that Biden officials in the Executive Office of the President and the Department of Justice unlawfully abused their power and then lied about it to the American people.’
‘This government, it seems, acknowledges no limits on its power to harass, intimidate, and silence its political opponents,’ said Rubinstein, who serves as the director of oversight and investigations at the conservative legal center.
Stephen Miller, a longtime senior aid to Trump, is president of America First Legal, which focuses on issues like ‘politicalization’ of the Justice Department, First Amendment issues, immigration and cracking down on the teaching of Critical Race Theory.
