The Persecution of Donald Trump

Posted on | August 9, 2022 | Comments Off on The Persecution of Donald Trump

Democrats impeached him twice, but that wasn’t enough:

Former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-A-Lago, was raided by FBI agents, Trump announced in a statement on Monday.
“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 said. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
Trump noted his previous cooperation with law enforcement and called the FBI raid of his home “prosecutorial misconduct.” Trump also said it is an example of “the weaponization of the Justice System who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024.” . . .
Eric Trump said on FNC’s Hannity Show tonight, “That’s what this is about today. To have 30 FBI agents, actually, more than that descend on Mar-a-Lago, give absolutely, you know, no notice, go through the gates, start ransacking an office, ransacking a closet. You know, they broke into a safe. He didn’t even have anything in the safe. I mean, give me a break. And this is coming from, what, the national archives? Yet Hunter Biden, he’s did firearms crimes, illegal drugs, you know, shady deals with everybody around the world. By the way, it’s all on his laptop for the whole world to see, in his own writing, in his own words. Where are these FBI agents? Where is everybody? Why is it that the arrows only fly at Donald Trump and his family? Why is it that the political persecution only goes one way in this country?”

Professor William Jacobson is almost certainly correct: “This is a provocation. They are trying to get a reaction that allows a further crackdown. Don’t take the bait.” Democrats desperately want to turn the November midterms into a referendum on Trump, and this raid is part of that political strategy. Joy Pullman observes: “We’re watching federal agencies use their powers not to catch criminals but to criminalize peaceful political views and actions. We’re witnessing a growing campaign to lock people up for their opposition to the ruling political party, which is not only profoundly un-American but profoundly dangerous societally.” And in the name of “deficit reduction,” Democrats just passed a bill that gives the Internal Revenue Service $80 billion to hire 87,000 new IRS agents. Because nothing reduces inflation like hiring tens of thousands of new government agents to harass taxpayers.

As one Trusted Insider said of Biden, “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”

You might recognize the source of that quote.
