An article by Agence France-Press included Yini Zhang, who commented about an Instagram post that inaccurately indicates President Joe Biden admitted the search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was unlawful quotes.  She said there are two ways to interpret this behavior: “a desire to influence public opinion and a drive to harvest followers.” “When the account claimed that someone else could show proof that the FBI raid was unlawful, the gullible (willingly or not) minds can latch onto this claim to affirm their existing view (that Trump is the victim of the FBI's political persecution),” she said.
