On Monday evening, the FBI raided the home of President Trump.
Mar-a-Lago is currently “under siege, occupied,” as FBI agents carry out a search warrant.
It is currently unclear what the FBI is looking for specifically, though it is suspected that they are looking for “documents.”
The current speculation is that this is tied to the January 6th hearings, which many have criticized as a “sham.”
To make matters worse, there are cheers inside the Biden White House when they found out about the news.

It was President Trump himself who made the announcement that the FBI is raiding Mar-a-Lago.
The FBI has not denied the allegation, and several other people are confirming the massive raid.
According to NBC News:
Former President Donald Trump said in a statement Monday that his home at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, was “raided” by “a large group of FBI agents.”
Trump also claimed the presence of law enforcement was unannounced and the reason was politically motivated, though he did not provide specifics.
“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 in a lengthy email statement issued by his Save America political committee.
“After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” Trump said before bemoaning: “They even broke into my safe!”
A person familiar with the matter said the FBI is not disputing that it carried out the search.
At Justice Department headquarters, a spokesperson declined to comment to NBC News. An official at the FBI Washington Field Office declined to comment, and officials at the FBI field office in Miami did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The White House said it was not given a heads up.
The news comes after the January 6th hearings have failed to yield any interesting results.
The Democrats and their allies in the media were hoping that the January 6th hearings would have damaged Trump, but Trump has been as popular as ever among his base.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue to sink lower and lower.
After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?

The FBI must be legally and formally dissolved.
What happened to President Trump is positively stunning and a mark of unchecked government power.
I no longer recognize the country I live in. Left or right, we must all come together to fight this evil.

The FBI raids Trump’s house and the Democrats vote to add 87,000 new IRS agents to go after Americans.
Wake up, America.

It is currently believed that the FBI is still at Mar-a-Lago.
In fact, the entire premises may have been shut down.
Thank goodness President Trump started his own media company.
So he can still communicate with his followers after being banned on social media platforms.
President Trump released the following statement:
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.
Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.
It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections.
Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.
The political persecution of President Donald J. Trump has been going on for years, with the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more, it just never ends. It is political targeting at the highest level!
Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House.
I stood up to America’s bureaucratic corruption, I restored power to the people, and truly delivered for our Country, like we have never seen before. The establishment hated it. Now, as they watch my endorsed candidates win big victories, and see my dominance in all polls, they are trying to stop me, and the Republican Party, once more.
The lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt must be exposed and stopped.
I will continue to fight for the Great American People!
Can you imagine the outrage if President Trump’s FBI raided Barack Obama?
Or Hillary Clinton?
The media and their Democrat allies would be SHRIEKING at the top of their lungs.
Hopefully conservatives stand up for what’s right and realize what’s happening here.
It’s a persecution of President Trump and his America First agenda!

We must bring the national security state to heel or we won’t have a country anymore.
That has to be our top priority in 2023.
We start with the FBI & DOJ.

The FBI just proved that Donald Trump was right. He’s always been right.
No one will ever forget this.

Mar-a-Lago has been described as “under siege.”
It is clear that the FBI has been weaponized to target the political enemies of the Deep State establishment.
President Trump was able to begin the process of draining the swamp.
And it appears that the Deep State wants to prevent him from finishing the job!
According to Fox News:
Former President Trump on Monday said that his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida is “under siege” by a “large group” of FBI agents.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” Trump said. “It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections.”
“Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before,” Trump said, alleging that the FBI agents broke into his safe.
A source familiar told Fox News that the raid occurred early this morning. The source said agents brought a “safe cracker” and cracked a “relatively new” safe in Mar-a-Lago. The source told Fox News there was “nothing in it.”
Multiple sources tell Fox News the FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago is related to the materials Trump allegedly brought to his private residence after his presidency concluded. That matter was referred to the Justice Department by the National Archives and Records Administration, which said it found classified material in 15 boxes at the residence.
As news of the raid has spread, multiple people have taken to social media to call for a “rally” to show support for President Trump.

Can't wait for the next Trump rally!
It will be epic!

I’m on record as preferring an alternative to Trump in 2024. But this raid will make many people like me rally behind Trump — for all his flaws — to stop the abuses of power by federal law enforcement, intelligence services, military brass, and, most of all, Democrats in Congress
