“Sickening and Outrageous” – Meuser Reacts to FBI Authorization to Use Deadly Force During Mar-a-Lago Raid

Should the FBI have followed “standard protocol” in respect to the raid on Mar-a-Lago?

US Rep. Dan Meuser is not holding back after learning that the FBI was reportedly authorized to use deadly force when it raided the Mar-a-Lago home of former President Donald Trump back in August 2022.

The FBI executed a search warrant on Trump’s Florida resort home looking for “classified information, NDI, and US Government records” during that raid. Trump’s classified documents criminal case is pending a federal court date.

However, it’s now being reported that details of the search warrant reportedly reveal FBI agents were cleared to use deadly force, if necessary, in obtaining the documents and other records as part of the search warrant.

In comments to Newsmax’s Bianca de la Garza earlier this week (video below), Meuser, who represents Schuylkill County in Congress, said he still believes this pending trial and the ongoing so-called “hush money” trial currently ongoing in New York are examples of the continuing weaponization of the country’s judicial system and law enforcement.

“They’re trying to assassinate the President’s character and make him lose,” Meuser said. “The only reason this trial continues to take place is because he’s President Biden’s opposition in the Presidential race.”

Meuser is stunned that the search warrant did authorize the FBI to use deadly force during its raid.

“To leave language like that, directing agents in the field to go in and use deadly force, if necessary, I find it to be sickening and outrageous,” Meuser said.

He called for more action and an investigation.

Meuser said, “This has got to come under scrutiny. What is going on at the FBI? What is going on at the DOJ for them to have language like that that could cause the FBI to fire on and potentially kill the former President of the United States?”

Standard Protocol?

The FBI has since responded to its use of that language in the search warrant on Mar-a-Lago in 2022. In a statement, the agency said: “The FBI followed standard protocol in this search as we do for all search warrants, which includes a standard policy statement limiting the use of deadly force.”

Since this story broke earlier this week, however, the legacy news media appears to be running cover for the Biden administration and not questioning the inclusion of that language, considering the circumstances that Meuser points out in his objection to it.

“It’s a former President of the United States who has Secret Service agents who are obviously armed. No, this is continued weaponization of our DOJ, of our judiciary system, and most of the media are letting him get away with it,” Meuser said on Newsmax. “This is just wrong. The America people need to be aware that we can’t have this.”
