Republicans were furious when the FBI raided Donald Trump’s home.
The FBI went too far this time.
And Ron DeSantis destroyed the FBI with one fact about the raid against Donald Trump.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
The FBI raided Donald Trump’s estate in Mar-a-Lago using the pretext of Trump supposedly violating the Presidential Records Act by keeping documents after he left office to initiate a siege to terrorize Joe Biden’s chief political rival.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed the raid saying it was evidence of a corrupt regime taking a page out of a banana republic playbook by trying to jail political opposition.
The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.

Governor DeSantis was not the only Republican outraged by the FBI and Department of Justice serving as political pawns for Joe Biden.
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem slammed the raid as “un-American.”
“The FBI raid on President Trump’s home is an unprecedented political weaponization of the Justice Department. They’ve been after President Trump as a candidate, as President, and now as a former President. Using the criminal justice system in this manner is un-American,” Noem posted on Twitter.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy warned Attorney General Merrick Garland that a Republican majority planned to thoroughly investigate the Department of Justice next year.

But there is the distinct possibility that this latest FBI witch hunt against Donald Trump will fizzle out just like the Russian collusion hoax did.
George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley warned that early reporting suggests the FBI did not come away with the smoking gun many hoped.
Turley wrote on Twitter:
Mike Emanuel just reported that sources indicate that the safe was opened by a safe cracker but was found empty. That only highlights questions of any evidence of direct involvement by Trump and any intention effort at concealment.
That is why, again, we cannot assume that criminal charges are inevitable after such a raid. On MSNBC, a host said that the “orange jumpsuit may be coming.” That is rather premature given history of prosecutions in this area and the absence of confirmed evidence.
Joe Biden plunged America into an unprecedented crisis with this crusade to jail his chief political rival.
