‘What did he do?’ Joe Rogan says FBI’s goal in Mar-a-Lago raid was to ‘knock Trump out of 2024 elections’

Joe Rogan discussed the FBI’s unprecedented raid on the Mar-a-Lago home of former President Donald Trump during an interview with Seth Dillon, the CEO of The Babylon Bee, suggesting the bureau’s goal was to “knock Trump out of the 2024 elections.”

Dillon made the observation that in the eyes of many, the former president has “been given a ton of fuel, like they just poured rocket fuel in his engine,” citing the fundraising Trump has already done off of the raid.

“I mean, like legally, like, what did they find? And is he actually in trouble? Because I think the goal was to try to knock him out of the 2024 elections, right by trying him for crimes. What did he do?” Rogan asked.

“I don’t know,” Dillon replied. “Is it really about like confidential information that he shouldn’t have had in his home? Like, that was so important they couldn’t just ask for it. They had to go in there and get it?”

Suggesting that the problem would be having such information, Rogan said, “Because if you have it in an unsecure location, meaning unsecure, in terms of the government’s protection, it’s not locked up in archives, it’s not in a place that’s very difficult to access, you have control personally over the access to something that’s top secret. If that’s the case, then that’s a problem. Because that safe can be opened, people can get in there, people can get the code, they can copy it, they can send it to China.”

“Do you think that’s a genuine concern? Or is it — they want to find something, anything that they can use to prevent him from running again?” Dillon countered.

“I think both things are valid. I think, if they’re just doing that, and they’re using the FBI in a way that they would never use it against Hillary Clinton, and they’re going after him in a way they would never go after Ghislaine Maxwell’s client list — then we have a real conversation,” Rogan said.

“I don’t know what the files were — I have zero idea whether or not they were okay for him to have or declassified? I don’t know,” he continued. “But I think the argument would be if you’re not supposed — if there’s a f*cking whole chain of command about classified documents, this is the law on classified documents, and you decide to violate that law because you think you can … if that is what happened, then someone needs to be held accountable for that.”

Yet, Rogan appeared skeptical over that possibility.

“You’re not above the law, and you can’t decide that you’re not going to follow the law because you know better. And I don’t know if that’s the case,” he added.

“I think where people lose — where they stop or they don’t care about that is because they’re like, ‘Okay, you know, if you’re going to be selectively enforcing laws like that, and just turn a blind eye to Hillary deleting emails that have been subpoenaed and all of that in all and a blind eye to Hunter Biden trying to act like this is not a story until you’re forced to admit that it is’ — it’s the double standard that makes everybody say this is persecution,” Dillon said.
