    Holly ****. Something's happening.

    Trump says his Mar-a-Lago home is “currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Bloomberg News reports.

    Trump Says Mar-a-Lago Home Raided by FBI Agents
    Former president says unannounced raid at Florida resort residence not necessary or appropriate
    By Alex Leary and Sadie Gurman
    Aug. 8, 2022 7:16 pm ET

    Former President Donald Trump said Monday evening that FBI agents were conducting a raid at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla.

    “Nothing like this has ever happened to a president of the United States before,” he said in a statement. “After working and cooperating with the relevant government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”

    Details of the operation weren’t immediately available.

    Aides to Mr. Trump didn’t immediately respond to a request for more information.

    The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Spokespeople for the FBI and Justice Department didn’t immediately respond to calls for comment.

    (More to come.)

    Literally laughed out loud.

    Can't do the time? Don't do the crime.

    If Trump had any testicles, he'd have gone full Branch Davidian.

    You don't do that to a former and future president unless you intend to indict.

    It'll be interesting to see how this plays since the Republicans who voted for impeachment are still being hunted out as pariahs in their own party.

    they’ll turn their deity Trump into a martyr that the deep state and liberal elites are trying to silence

    some of the mindless drone foot soldiers will start their usual nonsense about a civil war and “it’s time for patriots to fight”…the usual nonsensical bullsh*t

    That, or maybe Trump declared war on the other 250.5 million Americans four years ago, and the FBI is ending it.

    He's had ~20 months to dispose of any evidence, but if anyone is dumb enough to hang on to an anchor in the pool it is that guy.

    Don't think he'll ever see handcuffs. I hope I'm wrong.
