Harrison Floyd, a former director of Black Voices for Trump in 2020, experienced a tense encounter with FBI agents, as revealed in newly obtained bodycam footage from Maryland police officers. The incident, aired on “The Ingraham Angle,” showed Floyd, visibly agitated, recounting to Montgomery County police how he was approached by men in suits who pursued him without displaying credentials.
Floyd, a Marine Corps veteran and MMA expert, described his reaction when one of the men brandished a pistol. His attorney, Chris Kachouroff, later clarified that initial reports of Floyd body-slamming an agent were incorrect and had been mistakenly included in case documentation.
The confrontation occurred when Floyd returned home with his daughter and was approached by the agents. He called the police, reporting the incident and expressing his desire to press charges against the unidentified men. The police report listed Floyd as the victim.
Kachouroff criticized the agents for not properly identifying themselves, a standard practice for plainclothes detectives. He argued that if Floyd had physically engaged with the agents as alleged, the authorities would have responded immediately.
Approximately 10 hours after Floyd’s call to the police, he was arrested. Kachouroff suggested that the FBI found it embarrassing that the state police made the arrest instead of them. Maryland officials later informed Kachouroff that Floyd’s state-level case was being dismissed, but he could face federal indictment.
The subpoena against Floyd required him to turn over contacts with Trump, the Trump White House, and attorneys working for Trump, as well as documents related to contact with election workers who sued former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Floyd had been charged in Atlanta under the Georgia RICO statute along with other Trump-connected figures but has not yet been indicted by Special Counsel Jack Smith. The Maryland incident occurred on February 23, 2023, and raised questions about the conduct of the FBI agents involved.
