The FBI just made the earthshaking move of raiding the home of a former President. At least he wasn’t there to endure the indignity. This is a breaking story without much to go on in the way of detail but we’ll keep you updated as this one unwinds. It promises to be a bumpy ride for the bureau.
FBI raided Trump residence
The media wouldn’t be saying a single word about this if former President Donald Trump hadn’t issued a formal statement. He had to do it by email because, as everyone knows, he’s too controversial for Twitter.
The FBI invaded his Florida castle on Monday, August 8. As he noted, his property at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, was “raided” by “a large group of FBI agents.”
According to the former president, “the presence of law enforcement was unannounced and the reason was politically motivated.” He didn’t go into any of the gruesome details.

What he did tap out was, “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.”
“After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.” Trump has been bending over backwards to comply with all the legal nonsense the Justice Department has been putting him through.
He knows that none of the agents who hit his home are ones who turned whistleblower and filled Senator Charles Grassley in on why the FBI only prosecutes conservatives.
Trump wasn’t there
When the FBI started poking around his private space in Mar-a-Lago, Trump and his family were at the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey. They go there for the summer.
The Justice Department isn’t saying a single word about the raid. That’s not surprising since their alleged Director, Christopher Wray, just got busted for lying to the Senate.
The other day, Charles Grassley and some other ranking Senators had Wray on the witness stand under oath. He was there to testify about why only conservatives seem to get probed by the FBI or prosecuted by the DOJ.
Holy shit great find @mirandadevine "The luxury FBI Gulfstream Wray uses was recorded on Flightradar24 making the one hour and 12 minute flight later that afternoon to bucolic Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks, which happens to be a favorite summer destination since his childhood."

Parents are called terrorists for questioning the school curriculum while Hunter Biden and his hookers get away scot free. Selling access to the Vice President used to be a crime in America. Not to Christopher Wray. He isn’t saying that Hunter didn’t commit any crimes, just that he’s not done checking to make sure.
When things got really tense and uncomfortable at the grilling, Wray informed the Senators that as much as he’d like to stick around and take his lecture, he had a plane to catch, so had to go. Senator Grassley wanted him to have the FBI pilot stand by but that didn’t work for Wray.
On Monday, just about the time agents were harassing the former president, the public learned where Chris Wray was jetting off to in such a hurry. “Gotta go,” Chris said. Now. Yeah, right now. The fish are biting. It turns out that he was headed to his own private lake in the woods. The senators will ask him why they lied to him as soon as he comes back.
