(FixThisNation.com) – The FBI has disclosed that there are no records that relate to former President Donald Trump’s assertions that he had previously “sent in the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys” to stop the “ballot theft” taking place in Florida during the 2018 election.
Trump had made this assertion in November, but according to an FBI letter from March 6 that was sent to NBC News, the FBI had searched through their Central Records System and had not found any records relating to a reporter’s Freedom of Information Act request for all records that related to Trump’s assertion. The FOIA request was filed only a day after Trump first made his claims on Nov. 10. At the time Trump had spoken about how he was responsible for now-Gov. Ron DeSantis’ successful gubernatorial election after he had the FBI intervene and stop the election fraud that was allegedly occurring in Broward County.
Trump’s statement came during a time when DeSantis was receiving a lot of attention from the GOP for his extremely successful reelection campaign and the success of his endorsed candidates in Florida. At the time Trump had taken to Truth Social to write that while votes “were being stolen by the corrupt election process in Broward County” he had contacted the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys in order to stop the ballot theft. He added that he had been responsible for stopping the Election from being stolen at the time.
Trump’s claims are not supported by any evidence, but they do raise questions about whether the former President may have tried to use federal agents in order to potentially intervene with the election results.
