Most of the most prominent members of the Republican party, like Senator Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Governor DeSantis, and Noem, have all spoken out against the raid carried out against former President Donald Trump.
However, one person hasn’t commented on the FBI raid, and it’s very telling.
Former Vice President Mike Pence hasn’t said one word about the raid as of the writing of this post.
Even Senator Mike Lee, who had his battles with Trump when he was president, is demanding answers after the raid.
In a lengthy thread, Lee is asking some grave questions that need to be answered:
Second, why break into the safe rather than seize it, take it into custody, and then seek a warrant to open it?
Fifth, perhaps there’s something here we don’t know—something that, once known, will clarify the reasons for the raid. If there is, FBI needs to bring forward the justification for this unprecedented action—as soon as possible. But if there isn’t, we’ve got problems at the FBI.
Seventh, if this turns out to be the product of the growing political weaponization of federal law enforcement agencies, shouldn’t this incident cause all Americans to be even more outraged by the Democrats’ plan to hire an additional 87,000 agents?
Ninth, what should we make of the fact that this is occurring while FBI and DOJ have taken no discernible action regarding (for example) flagrant violations of the law by (a) Hunter Biden, or (b) pro-abortion extremists threatening Supreme Court justices at their homes?
Twelfth, shouldn’t all Americans be suspicious of the FBI based on its use of warrantless “backdoor searches” under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (about which Christopher Wray expressed very little concern when I questioned him at last week’s hearing)?
Initially, liberals were giddy; however, reality hit them 12 hours later.
“This, I’m hoping, goes beyond simply not complying with some archiving laws, or DOJ just handed Donald Trump the Republican nominee and potentially the presidency,” said Alyssa Farah Griffin on CNN.
During the segment, you could hear the concern in the panel’s voices hoping that the raid was more than just a violation of an archive law. But even when CNN is sort of right, they are wrong.
Thanks to this raid, you will witness the largest voter participation from one party during a midterm election in the country’s history. In November, the midterms aren’t going to be a red wave or a red tsunami, it’s going to be a red flood like the one in the Bible. You are about to see terrible GOP candidates like Dr. Oz become competitive because Republican voters understand it’s better to deal with Oz and give the GOP the majority than let the Democrats continue abusing their power.

It took Mike Pence almost all day before he released a statement.
“I share the deep concern of millions of Americans over the unprecedented search of the personal residence of President Trump. No former President of the United States has ever been subject to a raid of their personal residence in American history,” Pence said in response to the FBI raid.
Other than one statement, Pence has been very quiet.
