California Democratic nominee Ted Lieu tried to figure out why the raid took place based on analysis.
Trump shows profound ignorance of the law. Democrats didn’t break into his house. This is not prosecution misconduct, as prosecutors do not approve arrest warrants. This search took place because a federal judge found probable cause to be evidence of a crime in Mar-a-Lago.
