'Joe Biden Is A Serious Threat To Democracy': Trump Calls For The 25th Amendment To Be Invoked After Unsealed Docs Reveal FBI Deadly Force Authorization

Following the release of unsealed documents that showed that the FBI was authorized to use deadly force during the Mar-a-Lago raid in late 2022 to obtain classified documents leftover from the Trump presidency, the presumptive GOP nominee took to Truth Social to demand that Biden's cabinet invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the 81-year-old Democrat from office.

The unsealed documents revealed that law enforcement officers engaged in the raid were authorized to use "deadly force when necessary" and that FBI agents were going to "confront" the US Secret Service agents protecting former First Lady Melania Trump. Agents were also authorized to go door to door to determine who was at the resort as a guest. During the raid, the bureau also ransacked and photographed Melania Trump's and Barron Trump's bedrooms.

"According to an 'Operations Order' produced in discovery, the FBI believed its objective for the Mar-a-Lago raid was to seize 'classified information, NDI [national defense information], and US Government records as described in [the] search warrant,'" Trump's lawyers wrote. Additional documents also showed that a medic was on standby in case of any injuries sustained during the raid, and a local trauma center was identified.

"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," Trump wrote. "HE IS MENTALLY UNFIT TO HOLD OFFICE — 25TH AMENDMENT!"

Following the raid on Mar-a-Lago in 2022, Attorney General Merrick Garland said that he "personally approved the decision" to issue a search warrant of Trump's home. The morning raid of the property was carried out by FBI agents in unmarked shirts who brought "standard issue weapons, ammo, handcuffs, and medium and large sized bolt cutters."

The use of deadly force authorization has led to some conservative commentators arguing that the raid was an attempted assassination attempt by Biden's DOJ, with Steve Bannon arguing, "Use of deadly force against a former POTUS who just had an election stolen from him...the attempted assassination of President Donald J Trump. Is it not?" 

Others argued that the use of deadly force shows how "criminal" the Biden administration is, with Arizona Senate candidate Kari Lake (R-AZ) writing, "The sicko Biden FBI were ready to use deadly force during the Mar-a-Lago BS raid. That tells you everything you need to know about this criminal Biden admin."

President Trump is currently facing 37 charges in the classified documents case, which is currently stuck in pre-trial proceedings in Florida. The case is unlikely to make it to trial by the November election after Judge Aileen Cannon indefinitely postponed the trial, citing the need to address multiple pre-trial issues. The trial, which was initially set for May 20, is now in a state of uncertainty as Judge Cannon did not provide a new trial date.
