    President Trump announces FBI has RAIDED Mar-a-Lago



    45th President Donald Trump released a statement on Monday saying that the FBI has raided his Florida home. Trump, who spoke at CPAC on Saturday in Dallas, and in Kenosha, Wisc. on Friday, said that his home is "currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents."


    "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," he began. "Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before."

    Do they want to push Trump voters to violence? It seems so...

      Why don't we wait for the facts before making judgments. If he did commit a crime, he doesn't get a free pass just because his followers might be upset. That's essentially the heckler's veto applied to the law.

        Bull Crap, this is political, and millions of people will see it that way. Was anything like this done to any former president? One who may run against the present sitting president?

          If you really think that it's implausible that Trump would have committed a crime, then you're hopelessly naive.

          People thought it was political when Clinton was prosecuted. And Nixon. Nonetheless, both were. If we believe in liberty and justice for all, then we cannot support a system that declines to prosecute on the basis of political popularity. You are essentially arguing that one man should be above the law.

            Agreed. Let's see the actual facts first.

              So something must have been done to another former president in order for said thing to now be done to this one? What a standard.

              He doesn't get a pass for being a former president, nor for something not happening in the past (which would then mean whatever happened in the past should not happen if there was not another example in the past, etc., ad nauseum)

                What makes you think we will get the facts? The FBI and DOJ will just say they can't comment on an ongoing investigation. Keeping a black cloud over his political future.

                    Nixon after Watergate perhaps? Nixon doesn't come close though to the level of widespread criminality that Trump is reasonably suspected of.

                    One who may run against the present sitting president?
                    There's certainly strong speculation that Trump will announce a presidential run primarily for the sake of blocking the investigations of him... apparently it's strong FBI policy that they don't interfere during election races (which makes James Comey's statement about reopening Clinton's email investigation 2 weeks before the election all the more egregious). So Trump may feel he has to run for office so that his criminality doesn't catch up with him.

                    Interestingly more evidence for his criminality came out today in the form of photos of documents flushed down the toilet. After Watergate, strong laws regarding the preservation of presidential documents were passed in order to prevent Presidents disposing of incriminating documents. Trump was alleged to have seriously violated this law by multiple people who say he destroyed documents in a variety of ways, including flushing them down toilets. This raid by the FBI is probably related to some other crime Trump committed though, and is probably not related to the just-released photos of pieces of documents with his sharpie-writing on them at the bottom of a toilet.

                      Well one good reason that comes to mind from a different scandal today, is that the FBI is still headed by a Trump-appointee, and one who apparently happily scuttled all FBI investigation of Brett Kavanaugh because Trump wanted him to. So to the extent the FBI is untrustworthy and needs overhaul, they appear to need that because they were unduly on Trump's side.

                            Sorry but you're pushing the sort of standard that actual dictators would just love, all in the name of Trump. It's frightening to see.
