The story surrounding the FBI’s raid of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home has completely dominated the news industry of late, and its evolution has been prodded along by a number of theories and characters along the way.
Of course, none of the personalities involved have loomed larger than The Don himself, who this week added to the drama of the situation by imploring agents within the FBI to take matters into their own hands.
Though he was careful not to use the word, former President Donald Trump appeared to call for the rank and file of the FBI to revolt against its leadership over the seizure of classified documents from his Mar-a-Lago home — and his possible criminal indictment.
Trump’s statement was terse, to say the least:
[…] in a TruthSocial post from Sunday Trump sought to undermine FBI leadership by seeking to stoke distrust and anger inside the agency.
“When are the great Agents, and others, in the FBI going to say ‘we aren’t going to take it anymore,” much as they did when James Comey read off a list of all of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s crimes, only to say that no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute.,” Trump said.
“The wonderful people of the FBI went absolutely “nuts,” so Comey had to backtrack and do a FAKE INVESTIGATION in order to keep them at bay,” he continued. “The end result, we won in 2016 (and did MUCH better in 2020!). But now the ‘Left’ has lost their minds!!!”
The statement comes not long after South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham suggested that an indictment of Donald Trump would lead to rioting in the streets of America, further escalating the rhetoric that surrounds the event.
