The people are playing dangerous political games.

The FBI is accused of targeting Trump because it dislikes him.

How quickly they forget that Trump fired his own FBI chief, who refused to pledge loyalty to him, and wouldn't let Trump use the agency to go after his political rivals.

Do they not remember how Trump referred to Hillary Clinton as a jailbird?

Did they not know that Trump wanted a mob of followers to march into the U.S. Capitol to try to overturn the results of the 2020 election?

Did they forget about the investigations into his private businesses?

This is just another distraction attempt

They haven't.

The FBI raid at Trump's Florida home is nothing more than a ruse to keep a grip on his followers and distract everyone else from Trump's lies and deception.

The FBI raid is being played by Garland.

After months of trying to get documents, the FBI got a search warrant to get them.

Garland spoke at a Thur press conference. It is standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search.

Garland kept the search under wraps until Trump told the world about it, revealing only enough information to paint himself as the victim rather than the person who took the documents.

Trump said that he would not oppose the unsealing of the warrant.

Trump must tell the truth (not that he will)

There is a copy of the warrant and a list of what FBI agents took from Trump's house. All that information should be made public by him.

According to media reports, agents may have been looking for things.

It is necessary for Trump to know if that is true or not. The public has a right to know the truth.

The former president is either incapable of that or is trying to undermine trust in America's legal institutions. His people are still very fond of him.

The people are playing dangerous political games.
