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.
