Ex-FBI Agent: Biden’s DOJ Pushed FBI to Raid Mar-a-Lago

The Justice Department may have pressured the FBI to raid Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate at the instruction of the Biden administration, a former bureau special agent said.

Maureen O’Connell, an FBI specialist in forensics, gangs and cartel-level narcotics from 1991 and 2016, said the DOJ was “trying to push” the FBI “to do this warrant.”

“They were trying to push the bureau to really, really hit this situation hard,” she said in an interview Thursday with Fox News anchor Bret Baier.

“And my guess would be that the bureau was the one going against the DOJ in this particular situation, because when you consider which entity has more to lose — the FBI clearly has much more to lose from this situation,” she said.

O’Connell said there were “spirited conversations going on for a couple of weeks, and … it seems to me the DOJ is the heavy in this situation.”
