I just came out of the Biden Witch Hunt trial in Manhattan, the “Icebox,” and was shown reports that Crooked Joe Biden's DOJ, during their illegal and unconstitutional raid on Mar-a-Lago, AUTHORIZED the FBI TO USE LETHAL (LETHAL) FORCE,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social. “NOW WE KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT JOE BIDEN IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO DEMOCRACY.”
