Ex-Trump Aide Sics MAGA Lackeys on Alleged FBI Agents' Families

Just hours after a list began circulating among right-wing media of FBI agents who signed off on the search warrant for Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago property, a former Trump aide tried to sic MAGA fans on the family members of the purported agents.

Garrett Ziegler, who recently went on a sexist tear against former White House colleagues, took to Telegram to post the personal information of men he identified as agents.

"This is one of the two feds who signed the 'Receipt for Property' form, which detailed-at a very high level-the fishing expedition that the FBI performed at Mar-a-Lago," Ziegler said on both Truth Social and Telegram.

The former Trump administration staffer further listed out the FBI agents' date of birth, work emails and linked to alleged family members' social media accounts.

"Hope he doesn't get a good night's sleep for the rest of 2022," Ziegler wrote on Truth Social, responding to another Truth Social user's photos of one of the alleged FBI officials who signed off on the inventory receipts on the warrant.

The inventory receipt section of the warrant was additionally signed by Trump lawyer Christina Bobb and listed out what the FBI had taken from Trump's home.

The FBI didn't return The Daily Beast's request for comment.

Shortly after Ziegler had posted what he believed to be the first FBI agent's information to Truth Social, it was taken down.

"[Truth Social] Just took down the post for ZERO reason," he said. "Didn't violate 18 USC 119 or anything else." (A Truth Social spokesperson didn't return The Daily Beast's request for comment.)

Speaking on the encrypted messaging app Telegram, Ziegler doubled down on his posting of information he claims to be that of the agents.

"We have to have faces," he said. "There are people ruining America, and they have names, and emails, and addresses."

Multiple attempts to reach Ziegler for comment were unsuccessful on Friday night.

The targeting by a former Trump administration aide follows CNN reporting that the FBI now faces "unprecedented" newfound threats against their agency.

"We work closely with our law enforcement partners to assess and respond to such threats, which are reprehensible and dangerous," the FBI told CNN in a statement. "As always, we would like to remind members of the public that if they observe anything suspicious to report it to law enforcement immediately."

It all comes as right-wing media has encouraged a protest to occur in front of the FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. Sunday, and continued calls for a civil war ring out from right-wing users on social media.
