We’ve been reporting on the politicization of the FBI under Joe Biden including in terms of the Hunter Biden case as well as domestic extremism matters.
But it just reached a whole new level — banana republic level — on Monday when President Donald Trump reported that a large group of FBI agents was raiding his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. Trump was not there, he was in New York.
“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,” Trump explained in a statement. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
“They even broke into my safe!” Trump wrote. “What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.”
This is extremely concerning when the Democrats have been going to all kinds of levels to try to prevent Trump from running again. Conservative pundit Dan Bongino was on Jesse Waters’s show just after the news broke. First, Jesse Waters went off on what a seriously dangerous thing this was, reading part of what Trump said in his statement.
