Dana White Reacts to Trump F.B.I. Raid

“It’s madness, man. The whole world is crazy right now,” the UFC president said at the press conference following the Dana White Contender Series 49 event. “I don’t know what to think, and I don’t know enough about it, and I haven’t talked to him. I’ve only seen bits and pieces on the news, so I don’t know exactly what’s going on. But I’ll probably call him in the next couple days.”
“I didn’t want to call him. I’m sure he’s got better f*cking things to do than for me to call and say, ‘Hey, what’s going on over there?’ But I will talk to him in the next couple of days.”
“I don’t even know what to say. I don’t even know what to think about any of that stuff because I don’t know enough about it,” White continued.
“Without getting political, without getting into all this f*cking bullsh*t, there’s 10 other people’s houses that probably should’ve been raided (by the FBI) before his that hasn’t happened. It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out.”
Trump is claiming that the justice system is being weaponized against him in an attempt to impede his chances of running for president in 2024.
Supposedly, because Trump took at least 15 boxes of official records with him to Florida (including documents clearly marked as classified), the F.B.I. opened an investigation leading to the raid yesterday. The F.B.I. raid of the Mar-A-Lago estate was a court-approved search.
The former President delayed returning 15 boxes of the material requested by officials with the National Archives for many months. Trump previously confirmed that he had agreed to return certain records to the Archives, calling it “an ordinary and routine process.”
The case was referred to the Justice Department by the archives early this year.
“It is NOT clear what prompted the search.”
Some sources are reporting that “it is not clear what prompted the search,” though people familiar with the investigation say it was related to the “possible mishandling” of classified documents.
Several boxes were taken away and no doors were kicked down. The search was finished by late afternoon.
Just ONE “official” violation of the law is enough to disqualify Trump from becoming president in 2024.
Any mishandling could be in violation of a law requiring Trump to preserve his records and phone calls of his official duties as president. If he were to be charged and found guilty of willfully hiding or destroying confidential and classified materials, some legal experts say he could be barred from being president again.
Trump claims political persecution after FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago
Former president Donald Trump is seeking to raise money for his political action committee after the FBI search of his residence.
A text message sent to supporters Tuesday morning announces that “MAR-A-LAGO was raided” and provides a link to donate to Save America, Trump’s PAC.
A landing page seeks to stoke more outrage, offering this message: “It’s time for EVERY PATRIOT to step up and stand against the Left’s reckless WITCH HUNTS and political persecution of President Trump!”
