Honestly i am not sure if this was the right thing to do, but it isn't clear yet why his home was raided. Based on some of the suggestions that were made... (classified US documents?), this hasn't something to do with jan 6th. I think this was a mistake and will backfire on the Democrats. It's basically an attack on democracy from the left with the goal to eliminate a presidential candidate for 2024, unless there are seriously good reasons to do this, but i'm not convinced of that based on the information we know.

Eitherway, this is a gift to the GOP, they will enjoy spinning this in their favour and it is a further blow to the trust of essential democratic institutions during times where those are already under threat.

It was not a "raid".

Absolutely, itís the best thing to happen in US politics since the 1/6 fiasco. Trump needs to be taken down enough to cause lasting damage in a Republican primary but with enough clout to take enough infrastructure away to salvage 2024 as much as possible against the Republicans.

You're right that much is speculating as of now. We will see what the future brings and what the context behind all of this exactly was.

I just hope they know what they're doing.

Wikipedia describes it as a raid, but last time i checked the article was nominated for deletion. I don't know the exact reasons (but probably the wiki page has also been used for political purposes).

EDIT:
French wiki describes it as a raid

English wiki has changed name but

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:FBI_search_of_Mar-a-Lago#Requested_move_9_August_2022

Naming is under discussion.

You're just parroting far-right conspiracy theories here.

If the media leaks are correct and the search is related to the potential mishandling of classified documents or violations of the Presidential Records Act, then this looks like a case of prosecutorial overkill.  It's far from clear why that couldn't have been handled cooperatively, or at most with a subpoena.  Trump had already voluntarily returned 15 boxes of documents to the National Archives back in January.

ThisÖis actually a reasonable take? How are you more reasonable on this than even some red avatars?

I haven't been following this very closely so far. I generally tend to assume based on past experience that Trump is guilty of, you know, whatever, but in this case it's just that, an assumption.

You're just parroting far-right conspiracy theories here.

The fact that you accuse me of parroting far-right conspiracy theories while nothing i've said is remotely close. The fact that we don't know why they raided mar-a-lago is simply the truth based on actual observations?

That this will be used by the GOP to spin, isn't a conspiracy theory either.

And stop trying to frame literally everyone who says something slightly different as far-right. That's not helpful, and probably at the same level of toxicity than actual conspiracy theorists theirselves.

I haven't been following this very closely so far. I generally tend to assume based on past experience that Trump is guilty of, you know, whatever, but in this case it's just that, an assumption.

I agree with that. I assume that too, but so far we have no proof or evidence. We don't know why the FBI was there.

Time will probably give us the answers. I just hope... they won't regret these actions in the future.

I should've added a "we don't know" option tbf.

Absolutely, the evidence was apparently there and subsequently approved by a judge.

People need to stop feeding the narrative whether it was the right thing to do for Biden or the Democrats. This was conducted by a law enforcement agency under regular guidelines and there is zero evidence for any political interference. It wasn't upon Biden, Harris, Pelosi or whoever in the Democratic Party to decide that. If anyone is responsible, it's Donald Trump himself because he apparently broke the law. He, his cultist supporters and other apologists need to stop blaming Biden or Democrats of rank and file for his problems. He brought this upon himself and it wouldn't have happened if he played by the rules.
