DeSantis: Biden Regime Has Now Crossed Over Into a Banana Republic

Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida torpedoed President Joe Biden’s “regime” for weaponizing the Department of Justice to raid former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in a move akin to the shameless corruption characteristic of despotic third-world countries.

“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,” DeSantis tweeted on Monday.

“Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries?” he added, referring to Democrat-backed legislation to more than double the size of the federal tax collection agency.

“Banana Republic,” DeSantis said.

On Monday evening, FBI agents raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Washington Post reported that what it called a “highly unusual” search was part of an investigation into whether Trump had taken classified documents with him from the White House to Mar-a-Lago after his presidency ended.

In a statement Monday, the 45th president said the FBI raid was “prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024.”

Trump lamented: “They even broke into my safe!”

In comparing the DOJ’s move to those commonly deployed in “broken, Third World countries,” Trump pointed out that “Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress.”

“Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House,” he added.

Republican Sens. Rick Scott and Marco Rubio of Florida also compared the raid to the despotic tactics employed in banana republic dictatorships.

“The FBI’s raid of Mar-a-Lago is incredibly concerning, especially given the Biden admin’s history of going after parents & other political opponents,” Scott tweeted. “This is 3rd World country stuff.”

Rubio unloaded in a furious tweetstorm, noting that abusing “government power to persecute political opponents is something we have seen many times from 3rd world Marxist dictatorships. But never before in America.”

The senator opined that the left will undoubtedly weaponize the Internal Revenue Service to launch even more partisan attacks on their political opponents.

As a reminder, the IRS apologized for targeting conservative groups during Barack Obama’s presidency.

Rubio then warned Democrats not to get too smug because “one day, what goes around is going to come around.”

There are no words to adequately describe the abject devolution of the presidency and the nation under Biden’s disastrous reign.

He and the Democratic Party have so drastically shifted the Overton window that we’re no longer shocked by the alarming policies and chilling actions they take every day.

From normalizing riots to incentivizing horrifying crime waves to promoting mass illegal immigration, nothing is too extreme for today’s destructive left.

“The FBI Is Corrupt”: Mark Levin Goes Nuclear Over Trump Raid, Slams ‘Silent’ GOP Leadership

"The FBI Is Corrupt": Mark Levin Goes Nuclear Over Trump Raid, Slams ‘Silent’ GOP Leadership

Fox News host Mark Levin went nuclear on Monday night in response to the FBI raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence on Monday, reportedly in connection with documents that the former president took home after leaving office in 2021.

"This was well orchestrated, so this has been going on for weeks," Levin told host Sean Hannity. "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 guess: ‘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."

Levin also noted that photos shared by New York Times columnist Maggie Haberman purporting to show official documents with Trump’s handwriting on them in White House toilets.

(Except… it isn’t Trump’s handwriting)

"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," Levin continued, adding "The FBI is corrupt."

Levin called it "the worst attack on this republic in modern history," before slamming GOP leadership. (h/t Mediaite)

"This is the worst attack on this republic in modern history. Period," he said. "And it’s not just an attack on Donald Trump. It’s an attack on everybody who supports him. It’s an attack on anybody who dares to raise serious questions about Washington, D.C., and the establishment in both parties. I haven’t heard a damn thing from the Republican leadership in the Senate! Have you? Not one of those guys has put out a statement. Because they’re weak. That’s why."
