Democrats continue to weaponize the FBI and DOJ against President Trump. As wrong as it is, the most recent scheme to destroy the popular president shouldn’t come as a surprise. However, the latest effort to erase President Trump from the political spectrum may backfire.
Since 2015, when President Trump announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination; the left has concocted plots to undermine him. Every single one to date has been exposed as a sham. The Russia collusion investigation was a hoax.
Both liberal-driven attempts to impeach President Trump were bogus. Even after they cheated him out of a second term, President Trump has been targeted by the radical far-left Democrat Party. They envision another run at the White House by him as a dangerous threat.
President Trump is a threat to the entrenched bureaucrats who have a stranglehold on Washington, D.C. The list of swamp rats is resigned to only Democrats. There’s even a healthy load of crooked Republicans who say one thing, but then turn around and do the opposite.
The most recent attempt to smear President Trump was a preposterous raid of his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. This raid was an unannounced attack. It was neither necessary nor warranted. The warrant itself was little more than a wide-open invitation to conduct a fishing expedition.
As with the crooked Russia collusion hoax and subsequent Mueller investigation, liberals used the Department of Justice to trigger their scheme. A bogus list of supposedly “highly sensitive classified documents” was the bait.
An Obama-supporting liberal judge in Miami was used to sign off on a search warrant. The FBI then orchestrated a predawn raid of President Trump’s home. It was senseless and politically motivated. Dozens of former FBI agents and federal prosecutors have weighed in on the raid.
The vast majority agree on one thing. There are far more questions than there are answers to why this raid had to happen, and why it happened when it did. Most believe sincerely that the DOJ and Attorney General Merrick Garland are not being forthright with the American people.
When have they ever been, when dealing with President Trump? Merrick Garland made a public spectacle of himself when he defended the raid. He didn’t answer questions. Garland’s canned response was noticeably forced and clearly dishonest. Merrick Garland is dishonest.
As this suspicious assault on President Trump unfolds, Garland could end up being a scapegoat for the left. John Bolton hasn’t always been an open supporter of President Trump. At times, Bolton has taken potshots at the former president.
Bolton is clearly disgruntled over being canned for his inept job performance while serving as President Trump’s National Security Advisor. Many conservatives do not agree with Bolton’s often radical foreign policy ideas. He’s a warmonger.
But in talking to CNN about the Mar-a-Lago raid, Bolton actually made a few flattering comments about his former boss. Bolton sat down for an interview with CNN’s host John Berman on New Day.
Bolton began by telling Berman that he believed, “I think it says there are very significant problems here for President Trump and many of his advisors, post-presidency.” Bolton couldn’t say what exactly those problems were.
However, he also clearly indicated the biggest issue could be for Merrick Garland. Bolton said, “But I think we’ve got to distinguish between the legal battle that’s going on and the political battle.” Without explaining how the legal battle will unfold, Bolton talked about the political side.
He thinks that the DOJ is about to be “overwhelmed.” At that point in the interview, Bolton cautioned the DOJ that, “If we were in a coliseum with two gladiators, one of them Donald Trump, the other Merrick Garland, we’d be about to witness the slaughter of the lambs.”
Bolton, like most legal experts, went on to say that he too felt that the DOJ “is not doing enough” to justify the search warrant. He said, “They’ve got to do more to explain what they’re up to.” To millions of Americans, what the FBI and DOJ are up to is obvious.
Once again, they’re being weaponized against a political enemy. They haven’t won any of their previous attempts to destroy President Trump. By all indications, they will not win this time either. The liberal left has tried to discredit the former president in every way imaginable.
They have failed every time. Each time they try one of their crooked schemes, they reinvigorate the vigilance of President Trump’s loyal base. The left cannot allow him to run again for president. But this could be the final straw. Does President Trump have a trick up his sleeve?
Could this all be bait to get the corrupt DOJ and FBI to react? If so, this will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. President Trump insists that the Washington, D.C. ruling class is corrupt. This most recent effort to destroy him might finally prove it.
