Country music legend Travis Tritt publicly backed former President Donald Trump after the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago estate. Tritt claimed the criminal justice system was being “politically weaponized.” Tritt said:
“The FBI raiding the home of DonaldTrump is a bridge too far. Our entire criminal justice system has been politically weaponized and we must put a stop to it. Vote against every single Democrat and RINO at every level of government in November.”
Eric Trump found a silver lining after the raid. He said: “DonaldJTrump.com is shattering all fundraising records and I’m told has raised more money in the past 24 hours than ever before in recent history! The American people are pissed!”
The FBI raided Mar a Lago when Trump was gone, according to Newsweek, because they wanted to avoid media attention causing a Justice Department official to remark: “What a spectacular backfire.”
Newsweek spoke to two government officials, a senior intelligence official and a Justice Department official, for their story.
“I know that there is much speculation out there that this is political persecution, but it is really the best and the worst of the bureaucracy in action,” the DOJ official said.
“They wanted to punctuate the fact that this was a routine law enforcement action, stripped of any political overtones, and yet they got exactly the opposite.”
“They were seeking to avoid any media circus,” said a second source, a senior intelligence official who was briefed on the operation.
“So even though everything made sense bureaucratically and the FBI feared that the documents might be destroyed, they also created the very firestorm they sought to avoid, in ignoring the fallout.”
It really is a case of the Bureau misreading the impact,” a DOJ official said.
