PRESIDENT Donald Trump has asked Attorney General William Barr to personally intervene in the George Floyd investigation, citing concerns of ‘national security’ and public outcry, Your Content can exclusively report.
“This goes all the way up to Washington,” said the individual briefed on the investigation into George Floyd’s death, who spoke to Your Content on condition of anonymity.
“Barr, at Trump’s recommendation, has asked the US Attorney’s Office’s to orchestrate an elite team in Minneapolis, placing them on standby and ordering them to expedite the investigation as a matter of national security.”
As Your Content readers know, the Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd Precinct building is engulfed in flames as protests continue in Minneapolis and St. Paul on Thursday night.
“The President seems adamant on ending the threat against law enforcement for good by bringing everyone responsible to justice.”
The source said officials at the federal level are fed up with the racial discourse and ‘brotherhood of secrecy’ that initially slowed the investigation down.
“One officer is behaving very oddly. Anyone who invokes the Fifth Amendment is likely to get charged. Several officers have been playing the Minneapolis Police Department for years.”
Your Content exclusively reported that President Trump had been briefed on the massive fire at the police department Thursday night, hinting he’d be sending ‘the cavalry’ in to assist.
“There’s been one delay after another – and the hammer is about to fall. The president is playing this somewhat close to the vest.”
“Washington said the officers’ savagery must be met with a commensurate response. A memo circulated noted: ‘Ferguson. History repeats itself and history is on our side in this fight!’”
“Barr was told to ‘take charge, take action and indict immediately,’” the insider continued. “Arrests are coming. It’s a matter of time. And the clock never ticked faster.”
“There will be at least two arrests within the next 96 hours,” the insider said. “There is a 100 percent chance that two of the officers will be charged in that time-frame.”
President Trump took to Twitter Thursday night but was quickly censored.
“I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right,” President Trump declared.
“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”
The deadly protests in the Twin Cities were sparked by the death of 46-year-old George Floyd, a black man who died Monday after a white police officer kneeled on his neck for several minutes as he was being arrested over alleged forgery.
