Arizona Republican State Representative Mark Finchem has dropped the hammer over Joe Biden’s FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, warning that the move “just united the entire world behind President Trump.”
Finchem, a GOP Secretary of State nominee, warned the Democrats that the move has opened America’s eyes to “their tyranny.”
“The DOJ didn’t just unite the Republican party, they united all Americans against their tyranny,” he added before ripping AG Merrick Garland.

Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis fired back at the Biden administration for raiding Trump’s Palm Beach residence.
Gov. DeSantis accused the Biden “Regime” of the “weaponization of federal agencies.”
“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,” DeSantis said.
“Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”
As Slay News reported, liberal law professor Jonathan Turley also slammed Hillary Clinton’s top 2016 campaign lawyer Marc Elias, who suggested the Mar-a-Lago raid could keep President Trump off the ballot in 2024.
While gloating about the raid on Trump’s Florida home, Elias claimed it could prevent him from being re-elected.
Elias cited U.S. Code to highlight that Trump could be barred from seeking public office again.
However, legal challenges could make efforts to prevent Trump from running again under this code difficult.
For Democrats to attempt to use the U.S. Code to bar Trump from running, they would have to take on their eternal foe – the U.S. Constitution.
“There are constitutional ways to impeach a president or to bar a former president from future office,” Turley wrote.
“The mishandling of official records is not one of them.
“There is ample reason to doubt that the presidency would be deemed barred by statute in this fashion.
“The basis and even the motivation of this raid will become clear in time, including whether there is evidence of willful and unlawful conduct by the former president.
“However, whatever this raid produces, this ‘enchilada’ will likely be hard for most judges to swallow as a way to keeping Trump off the ballot in 2024.”
