Sean Davis, a co-founder of The Federalist, slammed Newsweek on Twitter after Garland’s remarks, retweeting another user who posted a link and screenshot from the article with the comment, “According to Newsweek, the Mar-a-Lago search was not approved by Garland; Wray approved it, but Garland was not asked to do so. That strikes me as kinda remarkable.

More proof, not that you needed any, that the corporate media is full of liars and morons,” Davis ha scritto.

“Ci sono voluti 3 days to go from: ‘He knew nothing!’ to ‘Praise be that Garland personally approved raiding the home of the man who blocked him from being on SCOTUS!'” Lui continuò.

So Garland just contradicted this report,” Chris Pandolfo, curation editor for Blaze media, twittato.

Former Obama NSC spokesman turnedPod Save Americahost Tommy Vietor, twittato, “So the Newsweek ‘scoopthat Garland had no advanced knowledge of the FBI raid is utter bullshit (no surprise there).”

WSJ EDITORIAL BOARD SAYS FBI’S RAID OF TRUMP’S MAR-A-LAGO RESIDENCE IS ‘DANGEROUS’

scatole di documenti della Casa Bianca sono state recuperate dal resort di Trump a Mar-a-Lago, a New York Times reporter who often covers Trump, acknowledged that Garland’s presserthrows cold water on a Newsweek story.

Donald Trump has been the target of various investigations, political and legal, since first declaring his candidacy for president in 2015. Nel 2017, at the start of his administration, then FBI Director James Comey presented Trump with the now discredited Steele Dossier, which was paid for by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign through law firm Perkins Coie. The debunked allegations in the dossier led to the prolonged Russia-collusion probe, which dogged the first half of the Trump administration.
