These takes are hilarious. The only thing “third world” about this story is that the President tried to install himself as ruler in chief and not trust the democratic institutions. Take as much money from the rubes on his way out.

The raid is to find and secure evidence of numerous potential crimes. What are the police/FBI supposed to do?

I mean if he's done nothing wrong, he should just comply with the cops, right?

The DOJ can't really say anything while this investigation is going on. Trump and the GOP know this and are going to use this time to stoke misinformation and point out how this is a political witch hunt and the the FBI and DOJ should be defunded.

I find it ironic that this raid on Trumps Mara La go resident comes on the anniversary of Richard Nixon giving his resignation speech.

I heard the DOJ grew tired of negotiations with Trump. Someone, maybe an insider tipped of the DOJ that Trump had documents of a highly sensitive nature that wasn't turned over.

You could power Canada with the energy of Trump supporters flipping from back the blue to defund the police.

I donít know if itís a blockbuster really -I mean I hope it is but the arm chair lawyer I am with zero legal experience says itís an open and shut case Trump can run.

Now if he ends up in prison- pretty hard to run from there but even the most hopeful of us most admit itís seems unlikely

US politicians are hilariously open about how they yield to their rich donors.

So riled over IRS agents being hired to cut down on tax cheats and Sinema the other day demanding the interest carrying loophole remain for her to pass the Inflation/climate bill.

Yeah, that tweet is very transparently, "hey Trumpers! If your guy gets DQ'd and you need someone new to back, just remember I was on your side all along!"

LOL @ Yang. He's on the wrong side of everything.

There's no way some "local bureau" of the FBI is going to raid a former president's residence without signoff at the very highest level at DoJ

This also passed the senate on this weekend.. likely to pass the house. Big win for Democrats and Biden to accomplish something along with the CHIPs act being signed today.
