Political storm in the United States after the raid on Donald Trump’s home

Never has a former White House tenant cared for justice in this way.

Does the federal police search have to do with the many boxes that Donald Trump took with him when he left the White House in January 2021? Is it related to the investigation into his responsibility for the assault on the Capitol? Is it rather the suspicions of financial fraud to which the Trump Organization in New York is subjected?

Contacted by AFP, the FBI declined to comment.

Donald Trump, who has pleaded not guilty in each of these cases and claims to be the target of a witch hunt, strongly denounced the federal police raid, which he did not attend, in a press release.

“Our nation is living dark days”lambasted, assuring that “This unannounced search of my home was neither necessary nor appropriate.”

“No one is above the law (…) not even a former president,” replied on tuesday NBC Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who, like most other tenors in her field, has been calling for years to hold the former real estate mogul to account.

This judicial escalation seems to have at the same time cemented Donald Trump’s control over the Republican Party, which has united around the former businessman, to the point of making him a martyr.

“Civil war”

As soon as the raid was announced, a group of Donald Trump supporters went to the former businessman’s luxurious residence to shout their anger.

Several of them waved ‘Biden is not my president’ flags, yet another reminder that more than a year and a half after Donald Trump’s electoral defeat, tens of millions of Americans remain firmly convinced that the 2020 presidential election was his. “Stolen”.

On social media, some Trumpists purely and simply called Tuesday the “divorce”in this country with divisions so deep they can seem irreconcilable.

“This is the kind of thing that happens in countries in civil war”scolded Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Georgia elect known for her excesses, even calling for the dismantling of the FBI. “The political persecution MUST STOP!!!”

Springboard for 2024?

denouncing a “intolerable instrumentalization for political ends” of the Department of Justice, the leader of the conservatives in the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, has promised an investigation into its operation when the Republicans return to power.

His camp could regain control of Congress in the November legislative elections, which promise to be dangerous for Joe Biden’s camp.

On the Conservatives’ favorite channel, foxnewsThe headlines were also very critical of the raid: “The increasingly radical tactics of the Department of Justice are a danger to the republic”, “Biden’s FBI ransacks the house of one of his possible opponents in the 2024 elections”it was written.

Donald Trump, who already has a war chest of more than 100 million dollars (an unprecedented amount for a former president) and could declare himself a candidate for a new term at any time, took the opportunity to launch an appeal for the generosity of his followers

“It wasn’t just my home that was attacked, it was the home of all the American patriots I fought for.” pleaded in an email to his activists, suggesting a donation of $5 to $5,000 to fight a “Witch hunt”.
