New bodycam footage obtained by “The Ingraham Angle” from police officers of the state of Maryland depicts a tense encounter involving Harrison Floyd, a former Trump campaign aide indicted in the Georgia election case.
Floyd, who was the Director of Black Voices for Trump, claimed he was accosted by FBI agents dispatched as part of special counsel Jack Smith’s separate federal probe.
On the show, substitute host Will Cain reported that Floyd alleged he was returning home with his daughter when men in suits, likened to characters from the show “Better Call Saul,” appeared and ran after him.
In the bodycam video, Floyd appeared winded and recounted to Montgomery County police that he yelled back at the men, “who the [expletive] do you think you are?” He claimed the men never displayed credentials.
Floyd, a former Marine Corps member and an MMA expert, considered how to respond when one of the men brandished a pistol. He was later accused of body-slamming one agent, a claim his attorney, Chris Kachouroff, said was a misreported allegation in the press that made its way into the case documentation.
“They should have retracted that, but at the end of the day, if you look at the police report, it’s odd, to say the least,” Kachouroff said.
Kachouroff further explained that Floyd called the police when these strangers approached his house. In the state police report, Floyd is listed as a victim. About 10 hours after Floyd called the police, he was arrested. Kachouroff, a former law enforcement officer, remarked that it would be likely for authorities to respond physically if Floyd had touched them as alleged.
In the bodycam footage, Floyd expressed his desire to press charges against the agents.
“I want to press [expletive] charges against whoever those two are who are coming after me with my [expletive] daughter,” Floyd is heard saying.
One officer responded, “I agree with you,” when Floyd mentioned that the way they served the subpoena is not the way it is done.
Kachouroff noted the oddity of the state police arresting Floyd for a state crime and then being told by Maryland officials that Floyd’s state-level case was being dismissed, only to be potentially indicted federally.
“Like I said, no police officer worth his salt — even an FBI agent — is going to do this type of shenanigan,” he added.
The subpoena against Floyd requires him to turn over contacts with Trump, the Trump White House and attorneys working for Trump as well as documents relevant to any potential contact with the election workers who successfully sued former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Floyd has been charged in Atlanta under the Georgia RICO statute but reportedly has yet to be indicted by Smith. The Maryland incident occurred on February 23, 2023. The case affidavit claimed one of the agents held out his bureau credentials at one point, but Floyd didn’t look at them.
