While at the Mar-a-Lago New Year’s Eve celebration, President Trump was asked about the weaponization of the FBI and DOJ against him.
War Room reporter Jayne Zirkle asked Trump if he would commit to going after them during his second term.
“I think it’s a disgrace what’s happened with the FBI and with the weaponization of justice. There’s never been anything like this and it’s disgraceful. And thank you for that question,” Trump said.

The corrupt FBI and DOJ took their weaponization against President Trump to another level in 2022.
The FBI first raided Mar-a-Lago in what Trump called a ‘politically motivated’ search.

Garland named former federal prosecutor Jack Smith as special counsel three days after Trump announced his 2024 presidential run.
“One investigation that Smith will handle is currently looking into whether any person, including Trump, unlawfully interfered with the transfer of presidential power following the 2020 election, or the certification of the Electoral College vote in President Joe Biden’s favor on Jan. 6, 2021,” CNBC reported.
“The other DOJ probe is focused on whether Trump broke the law and obstructed justice in connection with his removal of hundreds of documents from the White House, which were shipped to his residence at Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida.”

As previously reported by CNBC:
U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday named former federal prosecutor Jack Smith as special counsel for two ongoing criminal investigations by the Department of Justice of former President Donald Trump.
Smith’s appointment came three days after Trump, a Republican, announced plans to run for president in 2024.
Trump’s move directly led to Garland’s decision to appoint a special counsel, who will recommend whether criminal charges should be lodged against the ex-president. The attorney general was appointed by Biden, a Democrat who defeated Trump in his 2020 re-election bid. Biden could again face Trump again in the 2024 election, although the president has not yet made a final decision on becoming a candidate.
