Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has one word for what the FBI's recent raid on Donald J. Trump's estate in Florida means for normal Americans: Danger.
He's familiar with these types of cases that feature a high-profile player that is being questioned on what they knew and how they knew it: he served on the Benghazi Committee that didn't need to raid Hillary's home to prove she possessed classified info.
Executing a warrant against ex-POTUS is dangerous. The apparent political weaponization of DOJ/FBI is shameful. AG must explain why 250 yrs of practice was upended w/ this raid. I served on Benghazi Com where we proved Hilliary possessed classified info. We didn’t raid her home

Donald Trump made the announcement that the Feds were raiding his home on Monday by comparing how he has been treated to the privileges Hillary Clinton has been given:
"Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House. I stood up to America’s bureaucratic corruption, I restored power to the people, and truly delivered for our Country, like we have never seen before. The establishment hated it. Now, as they watch my endorsed candidates win big victories, and see my dominance in all polls, they are trying to stop me, and the Republican Party, once more."
The New York Times said that the raid "appeared to be focused on material that Mr. Trump had brought with him to Mar-a-Lago, his private club and residence, when he left the White House."
