Ex-Trump Aide Sics MAGA Lackeys on Alleged FBI Agents' Families

https://www.thedailybeast.com/ex-trump-aide-sics-maga-lackeys-on-alleged-fbi-agents-families

Just hours after a list began circulating among right-wing media of FBI agents who signed off on the search warrant for Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property, a former Trump aide tried to sic MAGA fans on the family members of the purported agents.

Garrett Ziegler, who recently went on a sexist tear against former White House colleagues, took to Truth Social to post the personal information of men he identified as agents.

“This is one of the two feds who signed the ‘Receipt for Property’ form, which detailed—at a very high level—the fishing expedition that the FBI performed at Mar-a-Lago,” Ziegler said on both Truth Social and Telegram.

The former Trump administration staffer further listed out the FBI agents’ date of birth, work emails and linked to alleged family members’ social media accounts.


Total scum. If any of those agents are injured or killed, he needs to go to prison for a very long time.

One of Trump's lawyers: Don't run for President Donald, and it all goes away

Jesus, she must think we are all stupid.

Trump’s attorney says she has advised him that if he just says he won’t run for president, all these investigations and charges will go away and be dropped.


Her name is Alina Habba.

Alina has experience in many areas of litigation including, but not limited to, corporate litigation and formation, commercial real estate (transactional and litigation), family law, the financial services industry and construction-related matters. Alina is licensed to practice in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, and the United States District Court for the Districts of the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.


Notice her LACK of criminal defense experience. Granted, she said "not limited to" but criminal defense is a major area of the law.
