WH implies Trump home raid is not political persecution

United States Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated during a press briefing on Tuesday that the White House had no knowledge about former US President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence being raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and that President Joe Biden learned about it from public reports and had no prior notice.

Jean-Pierre said that the Justice Department operates independently and implied that the raid was not political persecution. She added that the Justice Department was free from political influence, despite Trump being a potential rival to Biden during the 2024 presidential election.

The press secretary concluded that the Justice Department's loyalty lies with no political party, but to "the law, the Constitution, and the people."
