Fox News host Mark Levin went off on the FBI and the DOJ for the raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence; Levin says it’s “the worst attack on this republic in modern history, period.”
Watch the clip above. Excerpts from the interview below.
LEVIN: Everybody pretty much knows that Donald Trump is going to run in the Republican primary for president of the United States. And so you have a sitting president who wants to run against him and his attorney general acting like this.
Now, here’s how this worked. Everybody’s guessing. I’ll tell you what happened. This is in the jurisdiction of the US attorney in District of Columbia, who’s also overseeing the January 6 prosecution. Why? Because that’s where the National Archives is, in the District of Columbia. They didn’t send FBI agents from the Washington office down there. They would have used FBI agents in South Florida and they would have coordinated with the U.S. attorney’s office down there if the plaintiff had a book.
This was well orchestrated, so this has been going on for weeks. Now, you keep asking your guests, what’s the justification? There is no justification. What’s he going to say tomorrow? The attorney general. Here’s my guest. We’ve been negotiating with Trump and his lawyers since February when we found out they had this information, we were getting nowhere. And then we know or we heard that some documents were being destroyed. Maggie Haberman, The New York Slimes was on CNN. They’ve been running pictures of hers that she’s going to have in the book of documents being flushed down a toilet. That doesn’t mean a damn thing. It could be anything.
There is no justification for sending 30 friggin’ FBI agents to the former president’s compound in Mar-a-Lago in early morning and conducting themselves this way or in any other cases in which they’ve done exactly the same thing.
The FBI is corrupt. This guy, Garland, goes after parents. He goes after Republican state legislatures. He goes after states because he disagrees with her abortion positions. He doesn’t do a damn thing to protect the border, which is compelled by the Constitution. Nothing.
