Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke out against the FBI’s raid on President Donald Trump’s Florida home, saying the invasion “is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents.”
“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,” DeSantis wrote Monday night on Twitter.
“Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic,” the governor added, speaking on Democrat’s efforts to expand the IRS with 87,000 new agents, according to Just the News.
The governor’s comments surfaced following Trump’s statement on Monday evening that his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida, had been raided and occupied by the FBI, as RSBN reported.
Through his Save America PAC, President Trump wrote:
“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.”
President Trump was reportedly in New York City at the moment FBI agents stormed into his Florida home, according to Fox News. The reason for the unprecedented raid has not been made public, yet Trump vowed he would “continue to fight for the Great American People!”
