An Inside Division investigation claimed that Lafayette Park wasn’t violently cleared so Trump may stage a photo-op. They had been going to clear the park anyway.
When federal law enforcement officials violently cleared protesters from the town’s Lafayette Park in June 2020, they did it so a contractor may set up fencing — to not let President Donald Trump maintain a photograph alternative at a close-by church, an investigation by the Inside Division’s inspector basic has discovered.
That discovering, revealed Wednesday, is prone to shock many critics of Trump, who’ve lengthy asserted that the president or his lawyer basic ordered the operation to pave the way in which for an act of political theater. That can also be the central allegation of a federal lawsuit by Black Lives Matter in opposition to the Justice Division.
Nobody should purchase this excuse from the Inside Division investigator. They need the American folks to imagine that it was all a giant coincidence and that the Justice Division had no concept that Trump could be staging the photo-op.
None of this is sensible when one considers that the Inside Division is suggesting that the park was going to be cleared anyway to place up fencing and it simply so occurred that Donald Trump who had been railing and threatening violence in opposition to the protesters additionally determined to stroll by way of the park to stage a photo-op.
