Fox News Host Laura Ingraham demanded accountability for Democrats after Republicans take back Congress in the upcoming midterm elections, following the raid conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigations on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida Monday night.
“I think that, again, this is a time for people who love our country, love our representative democracy, respect our Constitution, to take a breath, realize we’ve been through worse than this before, and we will get through this again,” Ingraham began.
“But when we get power back, it’s time to hold everyone accountable: the military leadership, the civilian leadership, the civil service, those in Congress who’ve abused their power,” she explained, adding, “All of them have to be held accountable. All of them. It can’t be this nice guy routine where we just, ‘Oh, let’s be friends.'”
In response to the raid, Congressional Republicans have demanded answers from the FBI and have announced they will conduct hearings, following their election to the majority in November.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) tweeted: “I’ve seen enough. The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization.”
“When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned,” he promised, adding, “Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar.”
In response to the raid, Trump released a statement Monday night saying: “These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections. Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries,” Trump explained.
“Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States,” the former president and potential 2024 candidate added.
Emphasizing the unprecedented nature of the raid was another Fox host, Mark Levin, who appeared for an interview on “The Sean Hannity Show” to say, “This is the worst attack on this republic in modern history. Period.”
“And it’s not just an attack on Donald Trump. It’s an attack on everybody who supports him.” Levin added. “It’s an attack on anybody who dares to raise serious questions about Washington, D.C., and the establishment in both parties.”
