Americans are reeling from the news that the FBI raided Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Largo home. The liberal media is spinning this as much as they can, adding it to the left’s unending accusations against the 45th president.
But we are learning more and more about what happened. And it hardly paints a good picture for the bureau.
From Fox News:
The FBI’s decision to execute a search warrant at former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Monday is “unprecedented” – especially for a non-sitting commander-in-chief and one who has indicated he might run again, a former special-agent-in-charge told Fox News Digital on Monday.
Former special agent Michael Tabman revealed the FBI has “never” raided former presidents’ homes. Many conservatives are outraged, especially by the news that the Feds cracked into Trump’s personal safe.
Eric Trump said Monday on FNC’s “Hannity” that former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, FL being raided by the FBI was “political persecution,” adding agents broke into a safe that “he didn’t even have anything in.”
The images coming out of this event aren’t making the FBI look good.
The image, snapped by local media WPTV, show what appears to be a plain-clothed Secret Service agent with his weapon — an automatic machine gun — as he paraded outside the property.
A machine gun, really? I thought they were just collecting some documents. Did they really need that kind of weaponry?
Others are bringing up legal concerns, aiming questions as Biden’s AG Merrick Garland.
According to [constitutional scholar Jonathan] Turley, the potential appearance of politicization would have warranted an impartial investigation, which could have been done with a special counsel.
All kinds of questions are swirling around the unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump’s home.
What we know right now is that the FBI was looking for White House documents Trump allegedly took with him to Mar-a-Largo. It is unclear if he actually had them in his possession.
Eric Trump revealed the FBI broke into Trump’s personal safety, finding nothing inside.
Legal experts blasted the FBI, saying that AG Garland should have appointed a non-biased special counsel to look into this investigation.
Instead, this will look like an attempt by a Democrat administration to go after a political opponent, who might run against him in 2024.
Isn’t that what Democrats impeached Trump over in 2019?
Photos from the event show FBI agents, armed with semi-automatic rifles, outside the Mar-a-Largo estate. Really? Did they expect a shoot-out over documents?
Some might wonder why the FBI didn’t cooperate with Trump, considering his status as a former United States president. Instead, they raided his home (while he wasn’t there) in what some think was overkill.
Republicans, and many Americans, are in no way happy. Some, like Kevin McCarthy, are promising investigations against Garland.
Others have suggested breaking up the FBI, out of fear it’s become too big and powerful. And some commentators wonder if there was an informant within Mar-a-Largo that inspired this raid.
Details will continue to come in over the coming days. This is probably far from over.
