WASHINGTON (FLV) – At a speedy press conference, President Joe Biden’s Attorney General, Merrick Garland, said that he “personally approved” the decision to seek a search warrant against Former President Donald Trump.

“The Department does not take such a decision lightly,” he said. “Where possible, it is standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search and to narrowly scope any search that is undertaken.”

Garland cited a “substantial public interest” in regards to the FBI raid as his reason for the remarks.

The federal government received criticism for raiding Trump, who is a potential 2024 nominee for President and a member of the opposing political party of Biden.

“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said. “Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”

Fox News reports that the raid is related to materials Trump allegedly brought to his private residence after his presidency concluded.

Trump said his house was “under siege” by a large group of FBI agents in a statement.

“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate. It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections.” Trump said.

Judge Bruce Reinhart, the federal magistrate widely reported to have signed off on a FBI search warrant on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, has an anti-Trump Facebook post dated Jan. 14, 2017, just before he took office.

“I generally ignore the President-elect’s tweets, but not this one,” Reinhart said. The magistrate is likely referencing a Tweet from Trump where he blasted then-Democrat Rep. from Georgia John Lewis for having a “falling apart” district.

“Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!” the then-president-elect said.

Reinhart praised Robert Reich, a staunch anti-Trump activist: “Thank you, Robert Reich, for saying what many of us feel, ‘John Lewis is the conscience of America. Donald Trump doesn’t have the moral stature to kiss John Lewis’s feet.’”

The magistrate went on to direct words from Joseph Welch towards Trump: “At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” In the event that Reinhart’s Facebook is taken down, click here for a link to an internet archive of the post.

The Miami Herald reported that on January 2, 2008, Reinhart began helping represent Epstein’s employees in a case related to sex trafficking.

FEC documents show Reinhart donating to Democrat Barack Obama campaign in 2008. They also show him donating to Trump opponent Jeb Bush in 2016.
