Here’s Lil’ Marco’s dumb, hysterical reaction to the feds busting into Trump’s safe:
Biden is playing with fire by using a document dispute to get the @TheJusticeDept to persecute a likely future election opponent
Because one day what goes around is going to come around

Ron DeSantis dishonestly invokes a subject he knows well, Banana Republicanism:
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. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.

Keep in mind that Republicans are just as much in the dark as the rest of us about exactly what the FBI was looking for. The “lock her up” party’s emerging narrative is that this was a “records dispute” — practically an overdue library book! — so leave Trump aloooooooone.
I have a feeling that’s not going to work out for them. Open thread.
