‘Deadly Force’ Authorization in Mar-a-Lago Raid Unjustified: Investigative Journalist

Newly released documents reveal that FBI and DOJ agents were prepared for potential U.S. Secret Service resistance during the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. The documents included a statement on the use of deadly force, which quoted government policy in stating that “law enforcement officers of the Department of Justice (DOJ) may use deadly force only when necessary, that is, when the officer has a reasonable belief that the subject of such force poses an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury to the officer or to another person.”

The FBI said its agents followed standard protocol, including “a standard policy statement limiting the use of deadly force.” NTD spoke with Jeff Carlson, investigative journalist and co-host of the EpochTV show “Truth Over News,” about the latest revelation in President Trump’s classified documents case.
