Do the American people not have the right to know what the FBI was doing hauling boxes out of a former president’s house?
As the Wall Street Journal notes, going after a former president over such a matter as a document dispute, and doing it in this way, is a dangerous thing:
The Justice Department is unleashing political furies it can’t control and may not understand, and the risks for the department and the country are as great as they are for Mr. Trump.
The FBI search on Mr. Trump suggests that Mr. Garland may be committed to pursuing and indicting Mr. Trump. If so, he is taking the country on a perilous road. There is much ruin in a nation, but no one should want to test the limits of that ruin in America.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy tried to get White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to say something, anything about the search. She would not.
And look how annoyed she is to actually get tough questions.

The more we learn, the more this stinks.
Take a look at this article, and note the date on it: May 5. Over three months ago.
So, those quote-unquote “classified documents,” that they used as a pretext to go full Stasi on Mar-a-Lago? THEY WEREN’T EVEN CLASSIFIED.
As for the magistrate judge who signed off on the warrant? Yeah, donated a total of $2,000 to Obama’s campaign.
And there are also ethical questions being raised about how that particular judge previously went into private practice right after leaving DOJ, and quickly joined the defense team of someone who was being actively prosecuted by the DOJ: in effect, switching sides during an active case.
That may or may not be legal, but it definitely looks sleazy. Especially when you consider that the defendant in the case in question–and I am absolutely not making this up–was Jeffrey Epstein.
So, it looks like they lied to a compliant (and sleazy) judge, in order to get a warrant, so that they could conduct a fishing expedition on a political opponent.
All this, because they know that if he runs in ’24, he’ll win, and then they’ll likely end up spending decades in prison.
Or, even worse: they might actually have to go find honest work, possibly for the first time in their pathetic lives.
This is almost like the IRS being uses as Brown Shirts.
When Noreiga was dictator of Panama he had a group called Dignity Bigade. Pepole called them the Ding Bats. They operatied in a similar fashion as the Brown Shirts. The locals took every effort to avoid them.
McConnell and McCarthy are promising greater “oversight” of the Biden regime, in other words….nothing will happen. If the Feds can do this to President Trump, and those jailed after January 6, imagine what they can do to the rest of us!
