US ‘Corrupt at a Level Not Seen Before’: Trump’s Home Raided by FBI

Trump

Former President Donald Trump said Monday evening his home had been raided by a “large group of FBI agents.”

“Nothing like this has ever happened to a president of the United States before,” Trump said in a statement. “After working and cooperating with the relevant government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”

Trump’s estate, Mar-a-Lago, is located in Palm Beach, Florida. Florida’s governor, Republican Ron DeSantis, tweeted that the raid was an “another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves.”

“Such an assault could only take place in broken, third-world countries,” Trump added. “Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee?”

The New York Times, citing unnamed sources, reported that the raid was done because of concerns Trump had classified material at his home. Trump reportedly had brought boxes to Mar-a-Lago containing “many pages of classified documents, according to a person familiar with their contents.”

In his statement, the former president argued that his 2016 political rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had been treated differently. “Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 e-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress,” Trump said. “Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable.”

In a 2016 debate with Trump, Clinton said the deleted emails “were personal emails and not official.”

Kevin McCarthy, the top House Republican, said in a statement that the Justice Department had “reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization.”

The California Republican added, “When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts and leave no stone unturned.”

Other Republican lawmakers also reacted on Twitter:

“The raid on Mar-a-Lago represents yet another example of the federal government weaponizing law enforcement to punish political enemies, silence critics, and send a message to those whom it views as enemies,” Heritage Foundation president Kevin Roberts said in a statement. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.) “The Biden administration and the D.C. swamp are making it very clear that they will use all the power of the state to intimidate anyone who stands in their way.”

“If they think they can treat a former president this way, imagine what they think they can do to the average American,” Roberts added. “Such actions could only be justified based on overwhelming evidence of wrongdoing. The FBI needs to immediately explain its reckless actions and [President Joe] Biden needs to answer the question of whether he ordered this raid.”

YES WITH 87 THOUSAND THUGS IRS To ARREST ALL of us. IT’S BEYOND TIME to SAVE AMERICA THIS Is The WORST. THEY are EVIL, WE are AT WAR

The FBI has been corrupt for decades. Today they don’t care because they know the media is in their favor. Waco, 52 men, women and children were killed. Ruby Ridge and the incident in Idaho are great examples of FBI unhinged.

Another blunder by this administration. Do you think President Trump packed these boxes and rented a moving van ? Give me a F~~~~~~ break. I pray for the day that the house , and senate are overrun with red conservatives ( MAGA conservatives) . Hopefully then we’ll see some justice. A real FBI. A real DOJ . A real Republic . A day where the Clinton, and Biden families face a court of law. A day where we find out the truth about Epstein, and the ledger of guests attending pedophilia island . A day where Antifa, and BLM face charges for all the destruction they caused to our American cities. God help us . November can’t come fast enough .

I share your dream but it will never happen. I think we are past the point of no return, and with the way they can freely rig elections it is going to stay as it is and probably get worse. I think that from an “actual votes cast” perspective there will be a “red wave” in November but from the actual votes that will be counted, there will not. Just like what happened the last time.

There is zero information to justify what the FBI has done in going after Trump. It is not Constitutional to use the FBI to rummage thru an individual’s private work and documents in hope that you can find something to use to attack him with. To do this required a warrant. Has the public now been able to see the document and the handling process of that document???? NO ,… and if there is any way to conceal it, the DemocRats will do that. One would have thought that the phony impeachment processs against Trump when he was POTUS would have taught the DemocRats not to go after a person hoping they can ruin his reputation. The DemocRats did a more effective job rigging the last POTUS election, but the public pretty well knows that at this juncture. So they DemocRats are now trying to go after him by getting enough info to guide another public attack on Trump. It really worries me that so many people aren’t realizing what the DemocRats are doing to try to block him against the DemocRat opponent in the next POTUS election (assuming Trump will be a candidate in it).

The demonRat Communists must keep Trump from becoming President. Their reign of terror will end if he does.
So…they must find, or make up, a felony charge and conviction that will prevent him running.
That’s what is going to keep happening until they can make it work.

Right on, Becky. The DemocRats know that the public is pretty much aware and convinced that the Trump/Biden election was rigged … and now the public is feeling the consequences of it with great dislike. And I see some little signs that segments of the new media realize they were “had” in being convinced to support Biden.

Hal, you also must realize what happened to so many of the Jan.6 protesters. They are still in prison and have no legal recourse. “They” are in control, WE THE PEOPLE are not. Time for all of US to wake up!

Which of course the left in this country has no respect for on any level. Yet, the American people continue to tolerate the increasingly open and hostile actions against the Constitution and its laws on a near daily basis. The Founding Fathers would be so disappointed with what the American people have allowed this country to become in the last 50 years.

“The FBI needs to immediately explain its reckless actions and [President Joe] Biden needs to answer the question of whether he ordered this raid.” is not enough…we need justice…we need accountability, we need law enforcement to step forward and put people in jail…It is my opinion that this type action by big government is leading America into a civil war! Law-makers must step forward and do their jobs…

This should be a teachable moment as Obama used to say. The left has thrown everything they can think of at President Trump since 2015 and he not only has survived them, but he ridicules them all along the way. Now the left is just resorting to pure, naked force and intimidation to try and achieve their objective. I expect AG Garland will issue an arrest warrant for President Trump sometime before the midterms to send a clear message to the Demorat voter base in hopes to minimize expected loses. The charge will of course be some esoteric nonsense that won’t hold up in a court of law, but the intent is NOT to actually go to trial but merely “dirty Trump up” as the folks in the legal profession like to say. They just need something to ensure he can’t run in 2024. Then the left will turn its attention to Ron DeSantis to do essentially the same thing. The Dems are simply in the process of clearing the field of anyone who they view as a credible threat to whoever ends up being the Democrat canidate for POTUS in 2024.

What the American people should take away from all this, if they are actually paying attention and have a functional brain, is if the federal government can be weaponized to so openly go after a former President who has never done anything criminally wrong in such an overt fashion, what sort of chance do you think the average Jane or Joe has when that same weaponized government is turned on you and me? Answer: Zero! These are the same corrupt tactics found in left wing dictatorships all around the world. Open your eyes people!

The media has been an integral part of the left for decades. When I say left, I mean the Democrats, their propagenda arm the MSM, the faculty of most, if not all, public education institutions in the country and literally dozens of sociallist organizations that operate in plain sight within the United States as think tanks, so-called foundations, and political activitist groups.

In general, and in the main, the news media has historically been pro-DemocRat for many, many, many decades. The news media has long ago, in general, faded away from politically equitable and unbiased reporting. I think this is in part due to fear or nasty reprisal against them by the DemocRat Party if they don’t cow tow to them at least a little. And another factor is nasty news is more interesting reading … thus more reader sales. Sadly, the news media over the many decades has become a bit of a prisoner to what gives them the best income … and integrity and honesty don’t always do that. Basicly, I don’t hold the news media overall with the same status I did many years ago. Yes, there are stalwarts that continue to give ALL the news … such as AMAC, FOX News, etc. And of course we still think of Rush Limbaugh of talk radio.

You can bet the socialist/democrats are awake at night thinking up new ways to win the mid terms. Destroying the “other guy” is obviously not their only tactic. I fear that if President Trump is re-elected, the socialist/democrats would not hesitate to eliminate him at the first chance. Strong talk? Yes, but true.

Is this the straw that breaks the camel’s back? Judging from the comments, the majority of us on this site have had it up to here with the Democrats. Ignoring their own egregious behaviors, their all-consuming lust for power and control has sunk to new lows never before seen in America. Maybe we should revert back to using tar and feathers – no, that’s too good for these slime bags – they should be exiled to a remote island in the Antarctic, dumped in a pit guarded by man-eating leopard seals (they’re real – look them up). knowledgenuts.com/antarcticas-man-killing-seals/

Seriously folks, our country is in grave danger if this rogue government is not curtailed. Feeble Joe needs someone shouting in his earpiece telling him what to say, whose hand to shake, and when it’s time to take a bathroom break. Pelosi and Schumer have been a bad nightmare waiting to happen for decades. And, Cackling Kamala adds nothing to the equation. Now comes the FBI to relinquish us of the ‘terror’ represented by Donald Trump. Really, Democrats? How about cleaning up your own house before you raid ours? At the very least, send Nancy a broom so that she can fly home to eat ice cream.

This corruption has been going on for years. Start with Bill/Hillary Clinton Arkansas dealings, Benghazi with Hillary, Hillary’s computer in her basement bathroom, fake dossier, Bill/Hillary’s long list of dead bodies, Biden with his horrible foreign policies for the last seems like 50 years, Obama’s gun running with the ATF (yes, it went all the way up to him for his decision making) that ended up with Brian Terry dead, the FBI with Page, Strzok, McCabe, Comey, Baker, Orr & wife, etc., on and on and on. Oh, but these people keep saying over & over “No one is above the law”. Soooo, why are these people above the law & not a one of these have been sent to prison? This is the corruption that has been going on for years….and will continue with these slick Democrats.

So close. Everything that is happening is pointing to the tribulation period. It’s a seven year period predicted in the bible when satan who the bible says in several places, rules the world will rule. God allows this because such a small percent of people want God in their lives. Satan misled people from the beginning of our race, and many continue to follow him. You are on God’s side or satan’s. If you don’t believe satan exists, but are not loving God and trying to obey Him, you are with satan. During the seven year period he will try to imitate Christ, and people who are here but don’t know scripture will fall for it. The church will be removed before things get really bad. The antichrist will rule for three and a half years seeming good when he cancels a peace treaty with Israel. He will then have a statue of himself placed in the temple and demand to be worshiped. At that point awful problems will develop, plagues, scorching heat, etc. God loves everyone and will save anyone, who sincerely asks the Lord who shed his blood on the cross for our sins, to save them.
