The raid on a former president’s home is unprecedented and answers have yet to be given on if there are more serious reasons for the move by the FBI and Justice Department during an election year. While some GOP members were swift in their condemnation of the raid, leadership took their time in even giving their thoughts on the situation.
“I love having you on, Lindsey. You and I have debated about things. I have seen you spitting mad over Ukraine. You don’t seem as mad as you were about this than you have been mad about Ukraine. I don’t understand why people aren’t lighting their hair on fire. I don’t understand why people aren’t out in the street,” Watters said.
“This isn’t like, ‘Oh, well, you know, let’s just see what’s in the warrant.’ They have been doing this. This is the third election. This is the third election. We know they doctor evidence. We know they plant evidence. We know they hide evidence. We know they lie. We know they leak. This is not anything new,” he continued.
“Yeah, no, I got you. I understand exactly what you are saying. I want to come on your show and tell you things that I know aren’t going to happen,” Graham replied. “I can’t make them stop. I can’t urge them and stop the process of normal business in the Senate until we know more. We’re going to have an election in November. You want to stop these people? Fire them. If you want to get a president of the United States that knows what the hell they are doing, pick somebody other than Biden. You are dead right.”
Bruce Reinhart, the federal judge who reportedly approved the FBI’s search warrant to raid Mar-A-Lago, has been vocal in the past on his Facebook about his extreme dislike towards Trump.
