The FBI has continued to poke and probe at President Trump and his allies in recent weeks. That attack on MAGA Republicans began with the shocking raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence that many on the right compared to the sort of tactics expected of banana republics and tin-pot dictatorships, but has continued through now. Recently, for example, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell announced that the FBI had raided him and taken his phone when he stopped at a Hardee’s while on a hunting trip.
Well, while such tactics might have been intended to cow former President Trump and keep him silent, that does not appear to have worked. Rather, Trump has re-entered the political scene with a splash, raging against the FBI following the raid and calling out the Biden regime’s tactics.
Such is what Trump continued to do during a recent radio interview, saying that the American people wouldn’t stand for it were the Biden regime to try and indict him. In his words:
“I can’t imagine being indicted. I’ve done nothing wrong. I don’t think the people of the United States would stand for it… and as you know, if a thing like that happened, I would have no prohibition against running. You know that.
“There is no reason that they can [indict], other than if they’re just sick and deranged, which is always possible, because I did absolutely … nothing wrong… that’s not inciting, I’m just saying what my opinion is, I don’t think the people of this country would stand for it.”
That can be contrasted with what Vice President Kamala Harris, when asked about if Trump would be indicted and if such a move would be too divisive, said. She, speaking about the matter, said that the “people are going to demand justice” and that Biden’s DOJ has been “very, very careful,” saying:
Well, I wouldn’t dare tell the Department of Justice what to do. As a former prosecutor, I will tell you, I’ve — my — I am not in the business of telling a prosecutor what to do with their case because they know best the facts and the evidence as applied to the law. And so I’m not going to tell them what to do. And certainly the president and I and our administration, unlike the previous administration, have been very, very careful to make sure that there is no question about any kind of interference in terms of the decisions that the Department of Justice makes —
[..]I think that our country is a country that has gone through different periods of time where the unthinkable has happened, and where there has been a call for justice, and justice has been served. And I think that’s potentially going to always be the case in our country that people are going to demand justice and they rightly do.
We’ll see who is right in the coming months, as it appears that Biden’s DOJ might very well try and indict Trump and, if it does, the American people will almost certainly respond in one way or the other.
