Conservatives were understandably upset since they care about the rule of law and the politicization of the FBI. Political pundit and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino ripped the action, calling it “third-world bulls**t” and said it was a “clarion call” for everyone to get off their seats and vote the Democrats out of office. Trump family members, Lara and Eric Trump also blasted the raid, with Eric noting that they even cracked open the safe that was in the home, but there was nothing in it. Lara called it a “weaponization” of the FBI.
But now there’s an alarm being raised by the person you might truly think would be the last person to object to a raid on Donald Trump — former N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo — once the man some Democrats proposed to put up against Donald Trump in the race for the presidency before his scandals drove him out of office.
“DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of January 6 investigations,” Cuomo declared.
Now that’s surprising. When even Cuomo gets it, you know how bad it is. Of course, the Jan. 6 “investigation” had already blown all their credibility with the biased actions that they have taken against Trump. That’s just a political action to try to smear him and prevent him from running again.
It wasn’t just Cuomo, former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang was also concerned about the signal this was sending. MORE
I’m no Trump fan. I want him as far away from the White House as possible. But a fundamental part of his appeal has been that it’s him against a corrupt government establishment. This raid strengthens that case for millions of Americans who will see this as unjust persecution.5:53 AM · Aug 9, 2022
