The FBI raided former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home to destroy his 2024 campaign, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has claimed.

“The raid is unprecedented because it’s never happened in American history. And it shouldn’t have happened,” Greene told The Epoch Times and NTD as part of a special report on the FBI raid, airing on Friday, Aug. 12 on Epoch TV at 9pm.

The documents in Trump’s possession weren’t important to the current administration or the FBI so Trump did “nothing wrong,” Greene added.

The FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in search of documents on Aug. 8, sending shock waves through American politics. Agents didn’t let Trump’s lawyers watch the search.

Trump said a raid like this one “could only take place in broken, Third World countries.”

He also called it “prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the justice system, and an attack by radical left Democrats who desperately don’t want [him] to run for president in 2024, especially based on recent polls.”

The FBI raid follows a pattern reaching all the way back to 2016, when the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower, Greene said.

“They have been coming after President Trump over and over and over again, with many different things.”

She claimed “And all of them have been lies and false accusations.”

In the past week, the FBI also confiscated the cell phone of Trump ally Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Greene noted. She said that these actions are part of a plan to stop Trump’s 2024 campaign before it starts.

“They see the support that he has all over the country. His rallies terrify them, because so many thousands and thousands of people always show up at every single rally,” Greene said. “And they … see the writing on the wall.”

Trump’s Return

Trump candidates will win in the midterms, and Trump will win in 2024, Greene said.

“And this time, he’s going to finish the job that he started in his first term.”

When the former president returns to office, he will know “who his enemies are and the enemies of the American people in Washington, DC,” Greene said.

Greene said that Trump and his allies in Congress plan to focus on getting unelected bureaucrats out of government.

“We’re gutting them out of these institutions, because they are the most dangerous people. They are the ‘enemy within’ inside our government. They have to be removed,” she said.

The FBI raid on Trump has shocked voters in her district, Greene said. Voters also fear the expansion of the IRS by 87,000 more agents, she added.

After the FBI raid, Trump supporters have given the former president record-breaking donations.

Greene closed her comments by saying that Democrats are more concerned about stopping Trump than fixing real problems with crime, the border, and the economy.

“I think that shows everyone exactly who they are,” she said. “They aren’t for the American people. They’re America last, and all they care about is defeating all of us.”
