If there is one thing that we know for sure, it’s that Donald Trump isn’t afraid to rock the political boat, especially if his actions will impact those who’ve wronged him in the past.
That is why the former President appeared to be endorse the possibility that a Republican administration might find cause to raid the homes of Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Barack Obama and others, similarly to how he himself was targeted just days ago.
Former President Donald Trump and his allies are ramping up warnings that Trump might seek payback for the FBI’s search of his Mar-a-Lago club if he recaptures the presidency.
On Wednesday, Trump posted a link to an article headlined “The Payback for Mar-a-Lago Will Be Brutal” on his Truth Social account.
There was no denying what Trump was getting at…
The article, an op-ed penned by the Wall Street Journal’s conservative editorial board member Kimberley Strassel, argues that the FBI search of Trump’s Palm Beach club Mar-a-Lago could set off “a toxic cycle of reprisal and escalation” once Republicans get back into power. Strassel suggested that a future Republican-controlled Department of Justice may decide to start raiding the homes of prominent Democrats, including President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Barack Obama, and former Attorney General Eric Holder.
The raid on Mar-a-Lago has been a sore spot for Trump in recent days, with the former President demanding that the affidavit used to procure the search warrant be released to the public in full, in order to prove that he’s being targeted unfairly.
