Following the FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R-SD) reacted to the raid.


Governor DeSantis tweeted:

“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.”

DeSantis calls out the FBI. He calls out the federal agency’s hypocrisy regarding Trump and Hunter Biden. Some conservatives want DeSantis to take action regarding the raid.

Senator Marco Rubio tweeted:


“Using government power to persecute political opponents is something we have seen many times from 3rd world Marxist dictatorships. But never before in America.”

As Cuban flags fly alongside the American flag in front of Mar-a-Lago, Marco Rubio compared the FBI’s actions to a third-world “Marxist dictatorship.” Many people have compared the FBI’s action to something that would place in a third-world country.

Governor Kristi Noem tweeted:

“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.”


If the FBI wants any credibility, it can’t be partisan and biased like they are now. To those celebrating the FBI raiding Mar-a-Lago, the reaction would be the opposite if it were Hillary Clinton’s, Hunter Biden’s, or Nancy Pelosi’s home being raided. It is utter hypocrisy from the Democrats.

Hunter Biden’s laptop showed that the “big guy” Joe Biden was involved in Hunter’s business dealings with China. Not to mention Hunter received millions of dollars from Ukraine, but the FBI did not even bat an eye. If their goal is to crack down on corruption, Hunter is one of the top places to start. But it seems evident that the FBI and DOJ want to shut down conservatives and any person who has a different ideology than they do. The rule of law applies to every single American, regardless of political beliefs or party affiliation.
