Although President Joe Biden supposedly won the 2020 Presidential election, beating former President Donald Trump, the Democrats have yet to stop the constant attacks on his time in the White House and the GOP. Currently, America is facing rising inflations, a Southern border crisis, and soaring gas prices. But again, the only focus coming from the Democrats pertains to Trump and his legacy. On Monday, headlines broke that the FBI raided the Mar-a-Lago residence of Trump.
According to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, the former President was not present when the raid happened in Florida as he was staying at the Trump Tower in New York City. While there are several details still developing, a reporter from the Associated Press noted that the raid happened due to accusations that Trump took classified information from the White House without permission.
Donald Trump might not have been there, but that didn’t stop him from releasing a statement about the raid, comparing it to Watergate. “These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”
The former President added, “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,” he added, “especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections. Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.”
Again, the Democrats are known for their constant attacks and criticism of the Trump administration. At one time, CNN was full of Trump-bashing segments. But according to Representative Ted Lieu, a Democrat from California, the raid had nothing to do with politics. “Trump shows a profound ignorance of the law. Democrats did not break into his home. This is not prosecutorial misconduct because prosecutors don’t approve warrants.” The Democrat admitted, “This search occurred because a federal judge found probable cause that evidence of a crime would be at Mar-a-Lago.”
While Trump and many Republicans view this as a direct attack on Trump, it should be noted that the director of the FBI, Christopher Wray, received the position in 2017 thanks to Donald Trump.
