ER Editor: This is all very curious. There was no GOOD reason, i.e. valid, for performing this raid on his Mar-a-Lago home. At least, one has not been given so far. See this Zerohedge report, “Enough!” – House GOP Pledges Investigation Of DoJ With November Win After FBI Raids Trump’s Mar-A-Lago.
Now we find out that the authorizing judge on the search warrant has Epstein connections: Judge Who Signed Mar-A-Lago Search Warrant Exposed As Associate of Jeffrey Epstein
Below, Moon of Alabama explains why this is political ineptness and desperation on the part of the Democrats at its finest. Or is there something else going on? Something which triggers other surprising events.
Trump Raid Is Sabotaging The Democrats’ Campaign
MOON OF ALABAMA
Over the weekend, the Democrats finally passed their rather mediocre $430 billion Inflation Reduction Act, which will not reduce inflation and is mostly about climate related measures and drugs. They hope to profit from it in the November midterm election:
Vulnerable incumbent Democratic senators like Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada are already planning events promoting the landmark legislation they passed over the weekend. Democratic ad makers are busily preparing a barrage of commercials about it across key battlegrounds. And the White House is set to deploy Cabinet members on a nationwide sales pitch. The sweeping legislation, covering climate change and prescription drug prices, which came together in the Senate after more than a year of painfully public fits and starts, has kicked off a frenetic 91-day sprint to sell the package by November — and win over an electorate that has grown skeptical of Democratic rule.
But on the very same day the the Justice Department and the FBI handed republicans a huge new rallying point that will significantly increase their election turnout:
Hoards of angry Donald Trump supporters descended on his Mar-a-Lago home last night shortly after it emerged that the FBI had searched the ex-president’s estate as part of an investigation into whether he took classified records from the White House to the Florida residence. Trump, disclosing the search in a lengthy statement, claimed that agents had opened up a safe at his home and described their work as an ‘unannounced raid’ that he called ‘prosecutorial misconduct.’
He accused the FBI of a double standard, claiming the bureau ‘allowed’ Hillary Clinton to ‘acid wash’ 33,000 emails from her time as Secretary of State.
Those in his camp said the raid was a clear attempt to thwart a potential 2024 Presidential run.
Trump has not formally announced any campaign but speculation that he will run again is rife. It was compounded by his appearance at C-Pac this weekend.
The raid is guaranteed to be covered in multiple news rounds. It will give Trump new momentum for announcing his campaign:
As Trump weighs running for the presidency for a third time, the implications of the FBI’s foray into Mar-a-Lago for his political fortunes are considerable. Will it boost his status as a martyr, prompting the GOP to rally around him? Or is it the first real sign of myriad legal difficulties, ranging from wire fraud to election tampering in Georgia to the January 6 attack, that could fatally entangle him?
Is this a ‘bombshell’? Are the walls closing in (vid) on Trump? Is this the long awaited ‘tipping point’ that marks the ‘beginning of the end’ for Trump?
Of course not.
All attempts to get Trump over fake Russiagate claims or other issues have failed. Some ‘classified’ documents probably found in the possession of the person who, as president, had the power to declassify them will not change anything.
The raid and the accusations will only increase Trump’s and his followers determination to win:
The short-term upside for Trump, in any case, is clear. He is now once more the center of political attention at a moment when President Joe Biden was scoring a bunch of victories this past week. Trump, a master showman, will milk the FBI search for all the publicity he can squeeze from it.
The raid was probably the best Trump could have hoped for:
Mr. Trump made clear in his statement that he sees potential political value in the search, something some of his advisers echoed, depending on what any investigation produces. His political team began sending fund-raising solicitations about the search late on Monday evening.
Even those conservatives who do not like Trump will see the raid as an illegitimate attempt by democrats to prevent another Trump run for the presidency. It is something many will opposed on principal independent of who is targeted.
The White House claims to not have been notified of the raid. Many people will doubt that.
If Attorney General Merrick B. Garland did not inform the White House, he should be fired for political sabotage of the Democrats’ campaign. Launching highly political action without informing the boss is a no-no for the Justice Department.
If the White House was informed, its hatred for Trump must have pushed it into a very stupid mistake. Allowing the raid at this point of time was the worst thing that could happen to the Democrats.
There is also this conspirish [sic] issue:
U.S. Ministry of Truth @USMiniTru – 12:57 UTC · Aug 9, 2022 It’s perfectly unsuspicious that the lawyer who defended Jeffrey Epstein is the judge who signed the sealed warrant for the FBI raid on Trump’s home.
