As we continue to learn more details regarding the FBI’s unprecedented raid of Mar-a-Lago, some disturbing revelations are beginning to surface.
Of particular note are insinuations that there may have been an “informant” working from inside Mar-a-Lago, revealing to the FBI the location of documents that had not previously been handed over to the National Archives. Now, one of Donald Trump’s former advisers is suggesting that such an informant would have to be extremely close to the former President.
Mick Mulvaney, the former Trump administration acting chief of staff, said on Thursday that the reported informant who tipped off authorities about where Donald Trump was storing classified documents at Mar-a-Lago would have to be “very close” to the former president.Advertisement - story continues below
“This would be someone who was handling things on day to day, who knew where documents were, so it would be somebody very close inside the president, my guess is there’s probably six or eight people who had that kind of information,” Mulvaney said on CNN.
Then, in an attempt to drive the point home:
“I didn’t know there was a safe at Mar-a-Lago and I was the chief of staff for 15 months,” he said.
The raid of Mar-a-Lago has sent shockwaves through the political community, with many Republicans growing irate at the idea that the current administration’s DOJ would be involved in the investigation of President Joe Biden’s likely 2024 opponent.
