FBI raids Mar-A-Lago… Trump Issues Response
On Monday evening, the FBI executed a search warrant on former President Donald Trump’s estate in Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.
It is unclear at this time what the raid is about, what materials the FBI was seeking in the raid, or what kind of warrant they were executing.
As news of the FBI’s raid broke, President Trump issued a lengthy statement condemning the raid and comparing the FBI’s actions to that of a ‘third-world’ country.
“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections.
‘Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries.
‘Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before.” Trump said.
According to the NYTimes:
The search, according to two people familiar with the investigation, appeared to be focused on material that Mr. Trump had brought with him to Mar-a-Lago, his private club and residence, after he left the White House. Those boxes contained many pages of classified documents, according to a person familiar with their contents
Spokespeople for the FBI and the Justice Department did not return requests for comment Monday evening.
Biden's out of control DOJ is ripping this country apart with how they're openly targeting their political enemies.
This is what you see happen in 3rd World Banana Republics!!! https://t.co/tNIsinyutr

The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.

Hope y’all enjoyed living in a country that had freedom of speech, rule of law, and free elections. Because that country is dead and gone. https://t.co/lHbupu7PMB

Make no mistake, if you are not in line with the agenda of the progressive junta in the White House controlling our mentally incompetent president, the FBI is your enemy.

Political weaponization of the DOJ and FBI distracts from their mission to protect and serve. This same FBI, distracted by the Russian Hoax, failed to protect our very own community from multiple tips leaving 17 innocent victims dead. Shame on them. #FBIRaid #ThisBuddsforyou

A crowd of Trump supporters which emerged near Mar-a-Lago shortly after news broke of the FBI’s raid at the former president’s estate continues to grow into the night.

The FBI must be legally and formally dissolved.
What happened to President Trump is positively stunning and a mark of unchecked government power.
I no longer recognize the country I live in. Left or right, we must all come together to fight this evil.
