In an unprecedented, unjustified, and authoritarian action, what some are calling the “worst attack on this republic” in recent history, Biden’s FBI raided Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago, FL home Monday. The justification (if such it can be called) is supposedly that Trump had “classified” National Archives documents in Mar-A-Lago—except Trump was already willing to work with the National Archives if necessary, and Trump employees have said there were only declassified documents. This tyrannical nonsense was not only an attack on Trump, but also on his supporters—on all the Americans who do not support the illegitimate Biden regime.
I want to say right up front, citing Sean Hannity and Mark Levin on Fox News, who in turn cited Donald Trump’s son Eric as a source, that Donald Trump was working with the National Archives to try and get them anything that they might need. There was absolutely no need to raid Trump’s home, much less to break into his safe (which the FBI reportedly did).
Levin noted the significance of the fact that midterm elections are approaching, and Trump will likely run for president again in 2024. In fact, as horrible as this FBI raid was, I’d assert that it’s only a part of the real “worst attack on this republic” in recent years, the stolen 2020 election.
The 2020 election was stolen from Trump, for Biden. The Democrats simply cannot afford to allow a red wave this year or a Donald Trump victory in 2024. They have committed too many crimes and done too many shady deals to allow anyone into power who would investigate them. Levin explained that this FBI action was within the jurisdiction of the DC district attorney, who is also overseeing the January 6 so-called investigation. And we know how much of a joke and witch hunt that is. Levin said the DC attorney would not have done anything without the sign-off of Attorney General Garland (who, as Levin also noted, persecutes political opponents while failing to fulfill his actual job requirements). Levin highlighted how “well-orchestrated” this raid was, even though “there is no justification” for it, meaning it has been going on “for weeks.” Hannity and Levin both noted the recent allegations that Trump was throwing documents in toilets, and Levin indicated that this might have been the pretext for the FBI raid.
But there were plenty of Democrats and anti-Trumpers who took to Twitter to celebrate the outrageous FBI raid. Here are just a few—and keep in mind the above information as you read the justifications from these people with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Washington Post deputy politics editor for campaigns Sean Sullivan tweeted a Post article defending the FBI raid, commenting, “NEW: Top Republicans echo ex-president Donald Trump’s evidence-free claims to discredit FBI search. Many aghast at the situation had supported FBI probes of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server in 2016.” Except Hillary Clinton was actually covering up crimes. Trump is not.
You can always rely on Occupy Democrats to say something insane, “BREAKING NEWS: Dozens of FBI agents raid Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence to conduct an unannounced search warrant — even going as far as opening and searching his safe. RT TO THANK THE FBI FOR HOLDING TRUMP ACCOUNTABLE!” On that same tweet thread, Occupy Democrats added, “If you’re thrilled that dozens of FBI agents just raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence to conduct an unannounced search warrant — even going as far as opening and searching his safe, please RT and follow us for more breaking political news!” One of the replies to the tweet showed Trump’s name on a tombstone.
Comedian/actor/podcaster Michael Rapaport tweeted a video of himself hysterically rejoicing over the raid and making fun of a Fox News reporter. At the end, Rapaport screams, “They raided his crib! Good! HAHAHAHAAAA!” The podcaster also tweeted, “ MAR-A-LAGO RAIDED & I AM ELATED,” and “YES WE WANT THE PERP WALK! LOCK HIM UP! LOCK HIM UP!” as part of a long tweet chain. And before you wonder, as I did, if Rapaport could be serious, he has a history of outrageously insane hatred for Trump.
Palmer Report chuckled, “Right now Trump wants to race back to Mar-a-Lago to find out what all the FBI took, but he’s afraid to leave Trump Tower for fear the FBI will also raid it once he leaves. He’s totally screwed and it’s hilarious.” Some real objective journalism right there.
Democratic Coalition co-founder and executive director Scott Dworkin tweeted, “If Trump didn’t want to be raided by the FBI, he shouldn’t have committed crimes.” Authoress Meena Harris mocked Trump, “Trump on FBI search: ‘Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.’ Yes we know booboo.” I wonder if Harris and Dworkin are worried about Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s many scandals, including questionable ties to China, or about Hillary Clinton’s compromising emails?
Former RNC chairman and MSNBC political analyst Michael Steele tweeted, “Trump failed to return classified docs requested by the National Archives. A federal judge issued a search warrant for probable cause of a crime. This is not some rando move by the FBI so you shitforbrains Republicans calling for ‘defunding the FBI’ for once try to be less stupid.” Steele was responding to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s call to defund the FBI. MSNBC executive producer Kyle Griffin said NBC confirmed the raid was about supposedly “classified” documents belonging to National Archives.
This is deceptive. Even Guardian reported Hugo Lowell admitted in the midst of his support for the raid that any documents Trump has at Mar-A-Lago are declassified. Evidence from NY Post’s Miranda Devine and a Laws in Texas article showed that the judge who signed the FBI search warrant used to work for Jeffrey Epstein. The National Pulse confirmed the Epstein connection and added, “The National Pulse can also reveal that Judge Reinhart has donated to the campaigns of former President Barack Obama and to the establishment opponents of Donald J. Trump during the 2016 election, including Jeb Bush.”
MSNBC and NBC legal analyst Joyce Vance sneered, “We don’t know yet what crimes the FBI had sufficient evidence of to convince a federal judge there was probable cause to search Trump’s residence, but the execution of a search warrant isn’t a raid. It’s a judicially overseen process.” Because the Jan. 6 trials have clearly shown that the Biden regime confines itself to “probable cause,” right? Like sentencing a man who didn’t even enter the Capitol on Jan. 6 to over 7 years in jail? Or when the FBI raided former Trump DOJ official Jeffrey Clark’s home, seizing all electronic devices and forcing him to stand outside in his pajamas (one of multiple FBI raids of Republicans’ houses)?
Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Daily Wire pointed out the hypocrisy of leftists, noting that for people who actually committed crimes, like Hillary Clinton, their homes were never raided during investigations. The idea that a former President who has never been successfully convicted of anything because he didn’t commit any crimes can have his private home raided by a slew of armed FBI agents like this is unprecedented because it is totally unjust and ideologically driven.
As Mark Levin told Hannity, “There is no justification for sending 30 frickin’ FBI agents to the former president’s compound in Mar-A-Lago … and conducting themselves this way.” Levin added, “The FBI is corrupt. . .This is the worst attack on this republic in modern history. Period. And it’s not just an attack on Donald Trump, it’s an attack on everybody who supports him, it’s an attack on anybody who dares to raise serious questions about Washington, D.C. and the establishment in both parties.”
The only “crime” Donald Trump committed was that he uncovered the globalist, leftist corruption and plan to do the “great reset” of the free world. And the institutional Uniparty in the US will not stop persecuting Trump until they believe he is no longer a threat to their ideology.
