FBI Planned to “Assassinate” Donald Trump, According to Marjorie Taylor Greene

(NewsReady.com) – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is known for speaking her mind inside and outside Congress. She has also made no secret of her disdain for the Department of Justice and FBI. Recently, she accused the federal law enforcement agency of planning to kill the former president.

On Tuesday, May 21, Greene responded to a post from a conservative on X, formerly Twitter, who posted a screenshot of unsealed filings in the document case against former President Donald Trump. There was a highlighted portion that said the order related to the search warrant authorized the agents to “use deadly force when necessary.” Greene declared that there were grounds to impeach Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Greene demanded to know if the FBI was going to shoot Trump and his family.

The 45th president issued a statement about the new information on Truth Social and said he was shown reports that the Department of Justice “AUTHORIZED THE FBI TO USE DEADLY (LETHAL) FORCE” when they raided Mar-a-Lago in 2022 looking for classified documents.

Greene then responded to Trump in a follow-up on X. She accused the Biden Administration, FBI, and DOJ of “planning to assassinate Pres Trump and gave the green light.”

The moderators at X quickly flagged the congresswoman’s post and pointed out that the language Greene, Trump, and others were freaking out about is standard policy for search warrants. The Department of Justice follows standards set by the Supreme Court in Graham v. Connor, which authorizes agents to only use force if no alternative exists and only use the level of force a police officer would use if on the scene. Deadly force is permissible when an officer is trying to stop a deadly threat.

The FBI took the rare step of responding to allegations against the agency. In a statement Tuesday night, the agency said it “followed standard protocol” in the search of Trump’s home, as they always do. That “includes a standard policy statement limiting the use of deadly force.” The agency said nobody changed any policies or authorized additional force in the Trump search.
