Former NYPD commissioner fears Trump could assassinated

Many conservatives were outraged this week to learn FBI agents had raided former President Donald Trump’s home at his Mar-a-Lago residence.

One former law enforcement official went so far as to suggest the move could be a prelude to Trump’s assassination. 

Murder?

As the Daily Caller reported, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik offered the startling in a tweet on Tuesday.

Kerik was reacting to an earlier tweet in which former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell accused President Joe Biden of having “weaponized the US government for his political purposes.”

He went on to accuse Trump’s successor of setting “a terrible precedent” and compared his actions to those taken by “Third World dictators.

Kerik took Grenell’s logic further, saying that “just like in other Third World countries, if today’s raid by Biden’s FBI does not stop Donald Trump from running for president in 2024, their next move will be Assassination.”

Critics have fantasized

The Daily Caller noted that some Trump critics have spent years openly fantasizing about the former president’s murder, and they include author Zoe Sharp.

In 2018, The New York Times Book Review published a short story Sharp wrote titled “How it Ends,” which was one of five stories by a variety of authors that the paper ran as part of a series called “Five Novelists Imagine Trump’s Next Chapter.”

Sharp’s story featured a scenario in which the president is assassinated by a Russian agent who received help from the Secret Service.

“He closed his eyes and waited to pay the cost. It did not come. He opened his eyes. The Secret Service agent stood before him, presenting his Glock, butt first. Here, the agent said politely. ‘Use mine,'” Sharp wrote.
