Trump supporters rally outside Mar-a-Lago after news of FBI raid

Neither the 白色的房子 nor Joe Biden were briefed in advance about the 联邦调查局 search at former president 唐纳德·特朗普’s Florida home 海湖庄园, said press secretary 卡琳·让-皮埃尔 星期二.

“The president was not briefed, was not aware of it, 不. No one at the White House was given a heads-up,” she said in the first remarks from the White House on the raid.

Mr Biden learned about the search at Mr Trump’s private property through public reports, 她说, adding that the administration “learned about this just like the American people did.”

Mr Trump accused his successor at the White House, in an unevidenced claim, that Mr Biden “knew” that his plush estate was going to be raided by the FBI.

“Biden knew all about this, just like he knew all about Hunter’s ‘deals,’” Mr Trump posted on his Truth Social website on Tuesday night, the day after federal agents executed a search warrant at his sprawling estate in Palm Beach while he was in New York.

Giuliani caught lying about inability to fly in attempt to delay grand jury appearance

Former Trump attorney Rudolph Giuliani was caught lying to Georgia prosecutors in an attempt to get out of travelling to Atlanta to appear before a grand jury that is investigating former president 唐纳德·特朗普’s attempt to pressure Georgia officials into overturning Joe Biden’s 2020 election win there.

上个月, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ office issued a subpoena for Mr Giuliani to appear before a special grand jury she convened earlier this year. The panel is probing whether Mr Trump or his associates broke Georgia law by pressuring Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Governor Brian Kemp to “find” enough non-existent votes to reverse the ex-president’s loss to Mr Biden.

Mr Giuliani was set to appear before the grand jury on 9 八月, but in court documents, the ex-New York City mayor’s lawyers argued that a recent cardiac procedure left him unable to travel on the advice of his physicians.

How GOP plans to weaponise FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid for midterms

There may not be a lot that is clear about the Florida raid — how many FBI agents carried it out, what materials were recovered and who signed off the order to carry out the raids at Mar-a-Lago.

But it is immediately clear that Republicans will seek to use it to their advantage.

Nobody was more dramatic in their description of what had happened than Donald Trump himself.

“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,” he claimed. “It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponisation of the justice system.”

In the first sign of Mr Trump’s supporters seizing on the issue, they have vowed to try and put pressure on both Joe Biden and attorney general Merrick Garland if they win control of the House in November.

House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, who wants to take Nancy Pelosi’s job as speaker, vowed Republicans would establish their own hearings.

投票支持弹劾的共和党人向特朗普支持的挑战者让步

共和党人 congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, who voted for Donald Trump’s impeachment, has conceded a hard-fought primary battle to a challenger endorsed by the former president.

“Ever since I was first elected to this seat I have done my very best to serve my home region and our country,” Ms Herrera Beutler said in a statement released to the media on Tuesday.

The 43-year-old said: “Though my campaign came up short this time, I’m proud of all we’ve accomplished together for the place where I was raised and still call home.”

She was one of 10 Republicans in the House who backed impeaching Mr Trump for his role in the Jan 6 骚乱, and establishing a committee to investigate what happened that day and the events leading up to them.

GOP backs Trump’s 2024 election pitch after FBI raid

A call for support made by Donald Trump in a campaign-style video on social media where he said “the best is yet to come” is now seeing resounding backing from many Republicans, who cannot wait for the former president’s expected third run for the White House.

“One thing I can tell you. I believed he was going to run before. I’m stronger in my belief now,” said South Carolina’s senator Lindsey Graham from Columbia, who said that he spoke with Mr Trump and is certain another campaign is coming.

Indiana GOP representative Jim Banks said that “the sooner he kicks off his campaign, the better”.

班克斯先生, who is also the chair of the Republican Study Committee, was among about a dozen Republican lawmakers who spent several hours on Tuesday evening with Mr Trump at his summer home in Bedminster, 新泽西州.

The meal with the former president included steak, scallops, mashed potatoes, salad and a Trump cookie.

In the get-together, Mr Banks said that the group talked about the upcoming midterm elections and the 2024 presidential race.
