Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) told Fox News host Laura Ingraham that the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-A-Lago had the unintended effect of unifying Republican support, and that he expected there would be a massive turnout in November to elect Republicans who would work against further encroachments.
“I think if anything, the raid unifies Republicans in the outrage,” he said. “And we’re all hearing it from constituents in our districts. I’m hearing it from every Republican colleague in the House that I’ve talked to today. And I’ve talked to dozens of them today about what happened last night.”
“It unifies us in our outrage to fight back,” Banks continued. “And if anything, it paves the way for Donald Trump to unify the party once again and run for president."
"What they’ve done to tear America apart, to weaponize the Department of Justice in such an un-American way, to go after the political – the chief and primary political opponent of the current president of the United States is something we’ve never seen before in American history,” he went on.
It would be a very interesting turn of events indeed if this action meant to further attack and destroy Trump ends up helping him in the end.
