The fact that the search of the Trump family’s Mar-a-Lago residence took place just a few months before the midterm elections is notable.
Almost all of the Republican candidates for office have received the former president Trump’s support.
Trump has been campaigning and backing candidates across the nation, and in the primaries, the number of people he endorsed who received a spot on the ballot outweighed those who did not by a significant margin.
Democrats are concerned about these and other events going up to the midterm elections.
Disparaging the former president might undoubtedly affect those candidates’ chances of winning their respective contests in the mid-term elections.
Here are a few of the most recent criticisms on Trump:
The FBI and DOJ are looking into whether the former president took a number of supposedly sensitive documents from the White House after he left office in violation of the Espionage Act.
The records are a part of a collection that is being assembled for Trump’s presidential library, and the president has frequently claimed in public that he personally declassified them before leaving the White House.
Federal prosecutors are looking into how Trump’s efforts to change the outcome of the 2020 election may have contributed to the attack on the Capitol on January 6. Trump is also under investigation for his attempts to do so.
Former President Trump has never faced any charges in the years following the events of January 6th.
Prosecutors in Georgia have also started an inquiry into possible election interference by the former president after Trump called Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and instructed him to “find” the votes required to win.
At the time and thereafter, there have been concerns that Republican votes cast were “lost” and Democratic votes were “added,” making the former president’s remarks understandable.
The FBI and the DOJ have received repeated criticism from the former president Trump for how they handled almost everything related to the unprecedented persecution of him and his administration.
Week prior, Trump published:
“Not only did the FBI steal my passports in the FBI Raid and Break-In of my home [trump demanded the FBI return his passports, which they had to do and did], but it has just been learned through court filings that they also improperly took my complete and highly confidential medical file and history, with all the bells and whistles (at least they’ll see that I’m very healthy, an absolutely perfect physical specimen!), plus personal Tax Records (illegal to take), and lawyer/client/privileged information, a definite NO, NO. Days of the Soviet Union!”
On September 9th, Trump also published:
“So now the FBI and Biden Department of ‘Justice’ leakers are going to spend Millions of Dollars, & vast amounts of Time and Energy, to appeal the Order on the ‘Raid of Mar-a-Lago Document Hoax’ by a brilliant and courageous Judge whose words of wisdom rang true throughout out Nation, instead of fighting the record-setting corruption and crime that is taking place right before their very eyes. they SPIED on my campaign, lied to FISA COURT, told Facebook ‘quiet’, preside over the worst CRIME WAVE ever!”
Regarding the opposition to the appointment of a special master, Trump stated:
“They leak, lie, plant fake evidence, allow the spying on my campaign, deceive the FISA Court, RAID and Break-In to my home, lose documents, and then they ask me, as the 45th President of the United States, to trust them. Look at the IG reports of Comey, McCabe, and others. Things are safer in the middle of Central Park!”
And now, according to the Washington Examiner, the federal prosecutors have made another mistake:
In addition to not having been charged so far for any of the alleged crimes, it now seems that Former President Donald Trump may avoid legal trouble before the midterm elections as federal prosecutors have missed an unofficial deadline to announce charges 60 days before Election Day.
