Ron DeSantis SOUNDS OFF on Biden After FBI Raid
(RepublicanDaily.org) – News headlines have been ablaze with one story above all others this week; the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago, Florida. On Monday, August 8, the 45th POTUS released a statement revealing agents had come to the property and conducted a search, even opening his safe. Trump was highly critical of the Bureau’s actions, alleging he had cooperated fully with their requests and that the raid was therefore unnecessary. Other Republicans expressed their anger over the development too, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R).
As news of the development broke across social media, DeSantis took to Twitter to slam the Biden Administration’s handling of the situation. Highlighting the “kid gloves” treatment Democrat-affiliated figures receive in comparison with Conservatives, as well as the newly expanded enforcement authority of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the governor denounced the United States as a “Banana Republic.”
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. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.

This showing of firm support from the popular Florida conservative has surprised some. There has recently been growing speculation that he might challenge Trump for the Republican nomination for the next presidential election.
DeSantis’ short statement on the matter echoed the themes of Trump’s statement. The former president accused the Biden Administration of corruption, comparing the FBI’s actions to those ordered by despotic leaders in less developed countries.
