Last week, Biden irrationally decried “MAGA Republicans” as a menace to the nation.
Political pundits referred to Biden’s speech, as well as the background color and images, as “Satanic” and “Hitlerian.”
“As I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise,” Biden declared.
So tonight, I’ve returned to the spot where it all began to speak as honestly as I can to the country about the risks we face, the ability we possess to combat these threats, and the magnificent future that awaits us if we so choose.
“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,” Biden said to the roaring audience of Socialist-Democrats.
Now, we discover a potential cause for Biden’s anger.
Last month’s FBI raid on the Trump residence at Mar-a-Lago fell short, according to a former senior spy.
John Ratcliffe, who Trump appointed as Director of National Intelligence (DNI), said on Fox News last week that the FBI “didn’t find what they were looking” for, based on his assessment.
Ratcliffe, who served the fourth congressional district of Texas from 2015 to 2020, said Fox, “I was a former federal prosecutor and United States attorney. Allow me to explain what this is about. Good prosecutors with strong cases are honest. They are not required to play games. His remarks made reference to DOJ officials. They are not required to market for judges or disclose intelligence that may or may not exist.
In opposing the appointment of a special master to analyze purportedly secret materials, the Justice Department “tells you that the government didn’t find what they were looking for,” Ratcliffe said.
“There weren’t nuclear secrets” on Trump’s property, he continued, “and they’re trying to justify what they’ve done. They’re not playing it straight before the American people. I think that that’s going to play out.”
The Epoch Times reports that Ratcliffe did not disclose details about his assertions.

In addition, the outlet noted:
Since the Aug. 8 raid on Mar-a-Lago, neither the DOJ nor the FBI has revealed what materials agents were trying to find. A heavily redacted affidavit used to obtain the search warrant last week provided few details, but it said prosecutors believed there were allegedly classified documents being kept in Trump’s Florida residence.
