Chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC) Ronna Romney McDaniel wrote an opinion piece for Fox News on Wednesday, outlining her views on the recent raid carried out against former President Donald Trump at his Florida home in Mar-A-Lago — adding that if it can be done to him, it can be done to anyone.
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely, and we’re watching it play out in real-time,” McDaniel began. “On August 8, the Biden Justice Department’s unannounced raid of former President Donald Trump’s home crossed a line that has left many Americans wondering what’s happened to our country. Using third-world tactics like this against a former president is unacceptable in a vacuum.”
“By weaponizing the Justice Department to punish and intimidate their political opponents, the Biden administration and Democrats have shown just how far they’re willing to go to maintain their failed grip on power,” she added.
“Remember the Russia Hoax, when tens of millions of taxpayer dollars and endless hours of breathless media coverage gave us the Mueller Report?” McDaniel questioned, adding, “That years-long smear campaign concluded there was no collusion… Democrats and bureaucrats doubled down with a sham impeachment that saw Trump acquitted by the Senate. Time and time again, Washington elites have tried to take Trump down. Why? Because he effectively spoke up for the American people.”
McDaniel went on to criticize the federal government’s priorities, as Americans face an 8.5 percent inflation rate, the economy has fallen into a recession, crime is up across the country, and pro-life pregnancy centers have been attacked following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
She specifically attacked Democrats on the crisis happening at the Southern Border, which has seen millions of migrants pouring over the Rio Grande since Biden’s inauguration. Despite this, McDaniel stated Democrats are, “more focused on passing a bill that will raise taxes, have no impact on inflation, and hire an army of 87,000 new IRS agents.”
The RNC committeewoman then drew a comparison between the raid on Trump’s home to the lack of action on former Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who “destroyed over 30,000 classified emails, covered it up, and got away with barely a slap on the wrist.”
“In May, the Biden administration tried to set up a ‘Ministry of Truth’ to police what Americans read online,” McDaniel explained. “Last week, Senate Democrats passed a bill hiring a Rose Bowl Stadium’s worth of new IRS government agents to financially target everyday citizens. And on Monday, the Biden Justice Department unleashed the FBI on a leading political opponent just 92 days ahead of the massively important midterm elections.”
What is truly driving these infringements on Americans’ lives, she claimed, is a deep lust for power.
“Democrats are drunk on the power of one-party rule and growing increasingly aggressive in their attempts to punish those who push back against the far-left,” the article read.
“This raid on President Trump should be a wake-up call for every American,” she concluded. “It emphasizes how crucial the midterm elections will be: we can only stop this unprecedented madness if we elect Republicans in November to halt this wild overreach and hold the Department of Justice accountable. If the Democrat establishment can do this to a former president, what can they do to you?”
