THE RAID

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 11, 2022

           REACTION TO THE FBI RAID ON DONALD TRUMP’S FLORIDA HOME HAS BEEN FIERCE. REPUBLICANS HAVE MOSTLY UNITED BEHIND THE FORMER PRESIDENT, INCLUDING POTENTIAL RIVALS FOR THE 2024 PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION. THESE INCLUDE FLORIDA GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS AND FLORIDA SENATOR MARCO RUBIO.

         THE IMAGE OF HEAVLY ARMED FBI AGENTS STANDING OUTSIDE TRUMP’S HOUSE WITH NOBODY HOME EXCEPT A FEW HOUSEHOLD EMPLOYEES SHOULD FRIGHTEN ALL OF US.

         MATTERS OF PRESIDENTIAL PAPERS ARE USUALLY NEGOTIATED, AS TRUMP HAD BEEN DOING. THE FEDERAL JUDGE WHO AUTHORIZED THE RAID WAS A BIG DONOR TO BARACK OBAMA, ACCORDING TO FOX NEWS, THOUGH HE HAD BEEN APPOINTED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP.

         JUDGE BRUCE REINHART, WHILE IN PRIVATE PRACTICE, REPRESENTED JEFFREY EPSTEIN AND SOME OF HIS ASSOCIATES, INCLUDING ONE OF EPSTEIN’S ALLEGED SEX SLAVES.

         ATTORNEY GENERAL MERRICK GARLAND CLAIMS “NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW”? REALLY. HUNTER BIDEN IS (SO FAR). HILLARY CLINTON KEPT CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS IN HER HOME AND SENT SOME TO AN AIDE. HER HOUSE WASN’T RAIDED. LAWBREAKERS STREAM ACROSS OUR SOUTHERN BORDER.

         THIS RAID DOESN’T PASS THE “SMELL TEST.” I’M CAL THOMAS.

    The raid was ill-conceived and likely approved by Biden, although for now, he denies it. My understanding is it concerned purported archives, and Trump had been cooperating. Did it require an armed raid on the former president? Of course not; it was meant to send a message.

    Generally, President Trump received his free publicity from the media. Add the FBI. My thought is the raid backfires in a big way. If he’s not safe from the left, neither is anyone else. And that is what many are going to take away from this.

    Not only does it not pass the “smell test” it absolutely stinks.
    I think they have absolutely underestimated the response from the American People.

    I agree with these events do not pass the smell test. No one in government has been as persecuted as the 45th President, Donald J. Trump. I feel that the wrath on the FBI only serves the left wing media to lash back at the conservative right regarding “defunding”. I am personally against any defunding, especially when the department is just a pawn of the current party in power. How revealing is THAT! Exactly as a third world country would shepherd their federal police force! Garland was not being truthful when he exclaimed that “No one is above the law”. From the Clintons through the Bidens, if you align with the party in power and the mainstream media – you are above the law!
