Secret Service vs Armed FBI

If Trump would have been home during the raid, what would have been the reaction by the Secret Service agents to armed men approaching the person they have sworn to protect?

Would they have attempted to stop armed personnel from approaching Trump ?

Would the FBI have ignored them?

What would have happened?

They were told to stand down and they did. That is what I got from what was said about that.

I'll assume that you really know nothing would happen, other than the search proceeding pursuant to the warrant.

Yes but Trump was not there. The question is would they have tried to protect him from armed interlopers?

What would have happened if old school blackwater security contractors were guarding mar-a-lago?

I am saying they would not stop the Federal Agents. To me that is scary shite.

Why would they have intervened? They don't serve Trump.

The fact that you think federal law enforcement is going to stop federal law enforcement from doing what federal law enforcement can do to screw Trump is cute.

The FBI was not coming to harm or arrest Trump. Why would they do anything if the president was not threatened?
But, the real answer is that the FBI had a warrant. They can serve that and act on it anywhere in the US, even the president's home. Scary, huh?

They were given a heads up supposedly. Not sure how long in advance.

Would imagine SS has the duty to keep him safe. The SS were given a copy of the warrant IIRC and they let the goons in to sniff Melania’s laundry

Looking at them in the photos it shows they came to the former presidents residence with weapons, as the left likes to refer to as, weapons of war. You tell me brother.

So you are saying they would allow armed people approach the person they have sworn to protect?

You may be right, but what is the purpose of taking an oath to protect? I remember Bongino saying he would protect Obama at all costs even though he didn't like him much.

Trump should never, under any circumstances trust the Secret Service, FBI, DEA, ATF or any other Federal law enforcement. The SS agents would not lift a finger to protect him if he were in danger.

No. The execution of the warrant had already been coordinated between the FBI and the director of the Secret Service. SS knew they were coming.

As law enforcement officers, the SS would have allowed the FBI to execute its warrant, regardless of whether Trump was present.

Yes. But as I have said before, Trump was not there

Even if it had been an arrest warrant, the SS would (and should) have allowed the FBI to execute it.

A former POTUS is not immune from arrest or from a properly-executed arrest warrant.

And as part of this coordination, shouldn't the SS insist on no weapons? There was no reason for weapons.

Nothing would have changed. The Secret Service work for the Deep State first and foremost

Please link.

I have not seen ONE photo of an armed FBI agent at Mar-a-Lago on Monday. I have seen armed SS guarding the premises, and I have seen armed local cops on crowd control, but I have not seen a photo of ONE armed FBI agent.

I am NOT saying that such photos do not exist. I would love to see one, if so.
