The FBI has “raided” former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida. They executed a search warrant as part of an investigation into Trump’s alleged mishandling of official and/or classified documents from the White House. That particular investigation is one of two that Trump is going through now. The other inquiry is obviously related to January 6th. Trump released a statement about the raid, labeling it unnecessary and “prosecutorial misconduct”.
The former President’s statement also says that these “investigations” and “raids” make the United States akin to a third-world country. Other political leaders such as Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy have spoken out against it. An unexpected ally in Andrew Cuomo also defended Trump, although indirectly. He stated that there must be a legitimate reason given for the raid, lest it is seen as a simple political tactic.
Supporters of Donald Trump appeared at Mar-A-Lago shortly after the news of the raid swept the internet. The intention of this “raid” from the political establishment may be to weaken Trump’s chances in 2024. They may also want to damage this year’s midterm elections because people aligned with Trump via endorsement may be negatively impacted. But “they” may misunderstand and underestimate the integrity of the American people.
