Charges would prohibit him from holding office.

The FBI raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate is specifically designed to stop him from running for president again in 2024, legal experts have concluded.
Trump’s Palm Beach property was raided by the feds last night as part of a supposed investigation into Trump taking classified documents when he left office.
The Biden Regime dubiously claimed it had no advance knowledge of the raid, which has overwhelmingly been characterized by Republicans as politically motivated.
According to legal experts, the raid is clearly intended to be part of an effort to charge Trump with mishandling White House records, which would stop him from being able to run for president in 2024.
“If Trump is convicted under this federal statute, he would be prohibited from holding any office including the office of the president,” said former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani.
“That would be huge,” he added.
Trump would face charges under US Code Title 18, Section 2071, which states, anyone who “willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record,” faces a fine and up to three years in prison.
The provision mandates that the person responsible “shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”
This would eliminate Trump from facing off again against Biden, who Democrats have all but abandoned and are seeking to replace given his now notorious cognitive issues.
Although Trump took 15 boxes of documents with him when he left office, these were returned in January this year. Agents were looking to see if Trump had held on to any other presidential documents, although the safe they broke into was reportedly empty.
However, legal observers claim the feds could build a case that Trump deliberately destroyed records. The fact there is no evidence for this seemingly doesn’t matter given how lawless the Department of Justice has now become.
“His lawyers told him about the law requiring that he preserve White House documents, so he was on notice and that will bolster the case and help prove intent if prosecutors charge Trump,” said Rahmani.
Others have also pointed out that although the raid ostensibly has nothing to do with January 6, the feds, weaponized by the Democrats, could have been on a fishing expedition for information to bolster their founding myth, which is completely without evidence, that Trump “incited” or planned the January 6 riot.
“If evidence comes out from the raid that sheds light on Trump’s involvement in the Capitol Riot, then that will absolutely become part of the Jan. 6 investigation,” Rahmani noted.
