Former President Donald Trump reportedly said Tuesday that President Joe Biden’s attorneys collaborated with the “Gestapo” at the Department of Justice to get favorable treatment for the incumbent president amid a mounting crisis involving sensitive information.
Under a mutual agreement struck with Biden’s personal counsel, the Department of Justice apparently declined to dispatch FBI officers to supervise the search of Biden’s residence.
Department officials apparently concluded that FBI oversight would overcomplicate the federal probe into sensitive information relating to Biden, and that it was unnecessary given Biden’s cooperation.
“Biden is being treated so much [sic] better than me, I’m shocked (not really!). Why aren’t they raiding his house, & how come his representatives and lawyers are allowed to work together with the Gestapo [sic] in looking for documents, when my lawyers & representatives were not allowed anywhere near the search. We weren’t even allowed to know what they took when they raided my home. ‘Please leave the premises,’ they said, & then lugged out everything they could, including my Passports & Med Recs.” Trump wrote on his Truth Social account on Tuesday.
One of Biden’s personal attorneys discovered an envelope containing ten classified papers going back to Biden’s term as vice president in the president’s private office at the Penn Biden Center, a D.C. think tank.
Following the finding, Biden’s legal team conducted a search of Biden’s Delaware properties, which included homes in Rehoboth Beach and Wilmington. On three different occasions, the Justice Department-approved search brought up more classified papers.
On December 20, Biden’s attorneys discovered a cache of classified federal papers in Biden’s garage. On January 11, attorneys discovered one more paper in Biden’s research, and five more documents a day later.
