TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Republicans slammed the Department of Justice and the Biden Administration after the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago house Monday night.

“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,” DeSantis said. “Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”

Fox News reports that the raid is related to materials Trump allegedly brought to his private residence after his presidency concluded.

Trump said his house was “under siege” by a large group of FBI agents in a statement.

“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate. 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.” Trump said.

“Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe!” Trump exclaimed.

Senator Rick Scott called the raid “incredibly concerning” and called for an immediate explanation from the FBI.

Senator Marco Rubio posted a video explaining how the raid reminds him of actions taken in Nicaragua.

“You can try to diminish it, but that’s exactly what happened tonight. Thirty FBI agents raided Mar-a-Lago not looking for a fugitive, not looking to save someone’s life who’s in danger inside that building, not looking to track down some serial killer,” Rubio said. “No, 30 FBI agents in a high profile raid over a documents dispute.”
