We’ve been reporting on the politicization of the FBI under Joe Biden including in terms of the Hunter Biden case as well as domestic extremism matters.
But it just reached a whole new level — banana republic level — on Monday when President Donald Trump reported that a large group of FBI agents was raiding his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. Trump was not there, he was in New York.
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump explained in a statement. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
“They even broke into my safe!” Trump wrote. “What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.”
This is extremely concerning when the Democrats have been going to all kinds of levels to try to prevent Trump from running again. Conservative pundit Dan Bongino was on Jesse Waters’s show just after the news broke. First, Jesse Waters went off on what a seriously dangerous thing this was, reading part of what Trump said in his statement.
Jesse Waters: "I think there is going to be some more action you are going to see out on the streets from the base after they see this break tonight… They've had it with what this corrupt government and what the FBI has done."

Then Bongino let loose with a lot of the same thoughts that the rest of us were having right now over this FBI action. “This is some third-world bulls**t, right here,” Bongino said.

He wasn’t holding back. He said Hillary Clinton had paid foreign agents and promoted a false Russia collusion fiction that occupied the country for four years.
“What’s she doing right now,” Bongino said. “Getting a manicure in freaking Chappaqua!”
He then pointed out how Hunter Biden had sex and done crack on video, yet he’s hanging out at his mansion in Malibu. The management of the FBI has now shredded any sliver of credibility they had left, Bongino declared. “No one will take them seriously from this point on,” he said. He added that you cannot tell him we “still live in a constitutional republic and not the freaking third world” when there’s no action against Hillary Clinton, people lying under oath repeatedly, and Hunter Biden but now you have this kind of action.
“Where are the federal agents? They’re not in Malibu. They’re not in Chappaqua. They’re in Mar-a-Lago…This is some third-world garbage.”
Bongino then said, there wasn’t a question anymore, everyone has to get out and vote. “Republicans may not be the solution to your problems,” he said. “But Democrats are certainly the cause of all your problems right now. If there was ever a clarion call to remove your ass from the seat and go vote in 2022, this is it.”
There has to be a massive housecleaning. “Please, God, I’m begging you to vote in 2022 or you may not recognize this place afterward.”
It’s hard to say it better than that.
