As the FBI descended upon President Donald J. Trump’s home Monday night, Trump attorney Christina Bobb was there to witness the whole charade.
On Tuesday, she shared the details of the experience in an interview with RSBN, debunking claims that the president had taken classified information from the White House.
“This is nothing more than political theater,” the former reporter said of the unannounced raid. “The radical left is so threatened by President Trump they’ll do anything to prevent him from taking the Oval Office again.”
With President Trump spending the summer in New Jersey, Bobb advised that few staff members were present for the raid on his Palm Beach residence. As she lives in the area, however, she was asked to be there as one of his legal representatives during the search.
While it has been alleged that the reason behind the raid was that the FBI claimed Trump had taken classified documents with him when he left the White House, according to Bobb, the president committed no crime.
“No president has ever been prosecuted for something they removed from the White House on their way out of office,” she noted. “This is completely unprecedented.”
Adding that she believed the documents Trump possessed contained nothing substantive, the lawyer contended that, even if they did, prosecutors would have trouble proving in court that the president was aware of what was in the boxes as he did not pack or transport them himself.
Further, Bobb said she believed that the agents were not necessarily looking for classified documents but any reason they could find to prosecute Trump, holding that the Justice Department was trying to hide its true motives by citing vague national security interests as the reason for all the secrecy.
“They’re trying to shield what they’re doing and prevent the American public from really understanding it, and it’s disgusting,” she said.
And Bobb is hardly the only person to express disgust over Monday’s events. In the days since the raid, many have voiced the concern that the Biden Justice Department might be engaging in political persecution — and not all of them are Trump supporters.
“I’m no Trump fan,” former Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang tweeted Tuesday. “I want him as far away from the White House as possible. But a fundamental part of his appeal has been that it’s him against a corrupt government establishment. This raid strengthens that case for millions of Americans who will see this as unjust persecution.”
And, Bobb added, when such persecution begins, it is usually a sign that those in power are losing it.
“It tends to indicate that a nation is in decline when a new leader prosecutes their predecessor,” Bobb noted. “So it’s not a good look for us as a nation right now, but I don’t think the Biden administration or the crazy Democrats that are in control right now care about what we look like. They only care about power, and they’re willing to do anything to get it.”
