BlazeTV host Mark Levin unloaded on the FBI Monday night, calling the raid on Donald Trump’s home in Palm Beach, Florida, “outrageous” and the “worst attack on this republic in modern history.”

Levin, a former chief of staff to U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, called in to “Hannity” on Fox News Monday to give his reaction to the then-breaking news that FBI agents executed a search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. Federal agents were reportedly searching for evidence that Trump violated federal records-keeping law by allegedly taking classified documents from the White House with him to Mar-a-Lago when he left office.

“First of all, I’m a former chief of staff to a United States attorney general. We would never ever have done this. Ever,” Levin told Sean Hannity. “Number two, it’s 90 days before midterm election. That’s outrageous.”

“Number three,” he continued, “everybody pretty much knows that Donald Trump is going to run in the Republican primary for president of the United States. And so you have a sitting president who wants to run against him and his attorney general acting like this.”

Drawing on his experience with the Department of Justice, Levin said that the U.S. attorney in the District of Columbia, Matthew Graves, had jurisdiction over the Trump presidential records case because the National Archives is located in D.C. Graves is also the U.S. attorney overseeing the Jan. 6 investigations.

Levin said Graves’ office likely coordinated with the U.S. attorney’s office in Florida and that FBI agents in South Florida would have been the ones who conducted the raid, “if they are playing it by the book.”

“[The U.S. attorney] wouldn’t have done anything without the sign-off of the attorney general of the United States. Period,” Levin emphasized. He also explained that the precision of the FBI raid suggests it had been planned for some period of time, possibly weeks.

For months, watchdog groups have accused former President Trump of violating the Presidential Records Act by improperly handling classified documents. The National Archives has said Trump tore up some documents he was supposed to preserve while in office and took other materials with him to Mar-a-Lago after leaving office.

Earlier this year, the National Archives and Records Administration recovered 15 boxes of presidential records from Trump’s residence in Florida, which allegedly included “classified national security information.” Trump said the records were given to the Archives upon request in accordance with federal law. But the agency referred the matter to the Justice Department.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has written a forthcoming book that accuses Trump of attempting to flush some records down the toilet, an act that would potentially be illegal.

Levin said the accusations in Haberman’s book and other reports of Trump’s alleged misconduct served as a “pretext” for the raid on Mar-a-Lago.

“There is no justification for sending 30 freaking FBI agents to the former president’s compound in Mar-a-Lago in early morning and conducting themselves this way or in any other cases in which they’ve done exactly the same thing,” Levin said.

“The FBI is corrupt. This guy [Attorney General Merrick Garland] goes after parents. He goes after Republican state legislatures, he goes after states he disagrees with their abortion positions, he doesn’t do a damn thing to protect the border, which is compelled by the Constitution. Nothing.”

“This is the worst attack on this republic in modern history. Period,” Levin continued. “And it’s not just an attack on Donald Trump. It’s an attack on everybody who supports him, it’s an attack on anybody who dares to raise serious questions about Washington, D.C., and the establishment in both parties.”

THE GREAT ONE GOES OFF: ‘The Worst Attack on This Republic in Modern History, Period.’

Watch the clip above. Excerpts from the interview below.

LEVINEverybody pretty much knows that Donald Trump is going to run in the Republican primary for president of the United States. And so you have a sitting president who wants to run against him and his attorney general acting like this.

Now, here’s how this worked. Everybody’s guessing. I’ll tell you what happened. This is in the jurisdiction of the US attorney in District of Columbia, who’s also overseeing the January 6 prosecution. Why? Because that’s where the National Archives is, in the District of Columbia. They didn’t send FBI agents from the Washington office down there. They would have used FBI agents in South Florida and they would have coordinated with the U.S. attorney’s office down there if the plaintiff had a book.

This was well orchestrated, so this has been going on for weeks. Now, you keep asking your guests, what’s the justification? There is no justification. What’s he going to say tomorrow? The attorney general. Here’s my guest. We’ve been negotiating with Trump and his lawyers since February when we found out they had this information, we were getting nowhere. And then we know or we heard that some documents were being destroyed. Maggie Haberman, The New York Slimes was on CNN. They’ve been running pictures of hers that she’s going to have in the book of documents being flushed down a toilet. That doesn’t mean a damn thing. It could be anything. 

There is no justification for sending 30 friggin’ FBI agents to the former president’s compound in Mar-a-Lago in early morning and conducting themselves this way or in any other cases in which they’ve done exactly the same thing.

The FBI is corrupt. This guy, Garland, goes after parents. He goes after Republican state legislatures. He goes after states because he disagrees with her abortion positions. He doesn’t do a damn thing to protect the border, which is compelled by the Constitution. Nothing.
