Jack Smith PANICS After Trump Repeatedly Talks About ‘Deadly Force’ Authorization During Mar-A-Lago Raid


Special Counsel Jack Smith on Friday requested a gag order to be imposed on former President Donald Trump relating to the classified documents case. Smith is seeking to bar Trump from discussing the fact that FBI agents who raided his Mar-A-Lago estate in 2022 were authorized to use deadly force.

In Friday’s court filings, Smith asked U.S. Judge Aileen Cannon to modify the conditions of Trump’s pre-trial release to “make clear that he may not make statements that pose a significant, imminent, and foreseeable danger to law enforcement agents participating in the investigation and prosecution of this case.”

Smith accused Trump of making “false and inflammatory” statements about how the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) executed its unprecedented raid in 2022. Agents executing the raid — which was personally approved by Attorney General Merrick Garland — were authorized to use deadly force on Trump, his family, Mar-Lago guests and even the former president’s Secret Service detail if deemed necessary.

Defenders of the raid have argued that the use of force policy is simply “boilerplate” language that applies to every FBI operation.

“Those statements create a grossly misleading impression about the intentions and conduct of federal law enforcement agents—falsely suggesting that they were complicit in a plot to assassinate him—and expose those agents, some of whom will be witnesses at trial, to the risk of threats, violence, and harassment,” Smith’s office wrote in the filing.

Former President Trump addressed the bombshell revelation in a Truth Social post, claiming that FBI agents were attempting to assassinate him.

“WOW! I just came out of the Biden Witch Hunt Trial in Manhattan, the ‘Icebox,’ and was shown Reports that Crooked Joe Biden’s DOJ, in their Illegal and UnConstitutional Raid of Mar-a-Lago, AUTHORIZED THE FBI TO USE DEADLY (LETHAL) FORCE. NOW WE KNOW, FOR SURE, THAT JOE BIDEN IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO DEMOCRACY. HE IS MENTALLY UNFIT TO HOLD OFFICE — 25TH AMENDMENT,” Trump wrote.

In seeking the gag order Smith argued that the former president is “”well aware, the FBI took extraordinary care to execute the search warrant unobtrusively and without needless confrontation: they scheduled the search of Mar-a-Lago for a time when he and his family would be away; they planned to coordinate with Trump’s attorney, Secret Service agents, and Mar-a-Lago staff before and during the execution of the warrant; and they planned for contingencies—which, in fact, never came to pass—about with whom to communicate if Trump were to arrive on the scene.”

If granted, Trump would be barred from discussing the details of the Mar-A-Lago raid. The presidential frontrunner is currently under a gag order in the New York v. Trump case, which prevents him from discussing compromising Judge Juan Merchan’s compromising political connections.

Trump has been fined thousands of dollars for pointing to the fact that Judge Merchan donated to President Biden, while his daughter has raised millions of dollars for Democrat candidates as an employee of a left-wing consulting firm.
