FBI Called in After Person Close to Trump Makes Disturbing Confession That Could Cause Problems

Former White House aide Johnny McEntee is the latest ally of former President Donald Trump to land in controversy and social media scrutiny.

He has stirred controversy after a TikTok video surfaced showing him boasting about distributing fake money to homeless individuals.

In the video, he says that he does to have them arrested when they attempt to use the money in question, a confession now landing him in trouble.

McEntee also claims that he keeps fake Hollywood money in his car to give to homeless people who ask him for money, feeling virtuous in his act.

He justifies his actions by suggesting that the ensuing arrests will make the community better.

“So I always keep this fake Hollywood money in my car, so when a homeless person asks for money, and I give them like a $5 bill, I feel good about myself, they feel good,” says McEntee, also a senior advisor to Project 2025, in the video.

“And then when they go to use it, they get arrested, so I’m actually helping to clean up the community and get them off the street.”

However, his comments have sparked outrage and condemnation from legal experts and commentators alike.

Law professor Orin Kerr, in a post on Sunday, May 12, criticized McEntee’s stance, highlighting the unethical nature of causing innocent people to be arrested.

“Causing innocent people to be arrested is good, according to Trump aide,” he said.

Similarly, another law professor, Jennifer Taub, emphasized that ignorance of the law is not a valid defense.

Reed Galen, a former campaign manager and co-founder of the Lincoln Project, suggested that McEntee’s behavior is indicative of a larger pattern within the Trump administration, where disregard for legality is commonplace.

He has called upon the Secret Service to take charge and look into the matter, remarks that have prompted social media users to call for an investigation by tagging the Secret Service and FBI.

“Spoke to a friend recently who’s worked as a civil servant for years and dealt with Trump people,” Galen said.

“He said, ‘Here’s the thing: They literally don’t care if something is illegal. Oh, that’s illegal? It’ll be fine.'” Galen said.
