Federal agents raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home looking for what is believed to be classified documents taken from the White House. Politicians from both sides of the aisle speculated about the raid, with Democrats claiming it was justified and most Republicans claiming it was politically motivated. Hesitant at first, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell finally weighed in, saying, “The country deserves a thorough and immediate explanation of what led to the events of Monday. Attorney General Garland and the Department of Justice should already have provided answers to the American people and must do so immediately.” The first FBI raid of a former president’s home is an event that demands answers, not speculations, and hopefully, those answers come soon.
