former president trump is railing against yesterday's unannounced fbi raid on his mar-a-lago calling out what he believes to be a part in part to prevent a 2024 white house run. releasing this statement saying "it is prosecutorial misconduct and an attack by radical left democrats who desperately don't want me to run for president in 2024, especially based on recent polls." sources say the fbi raid of the former president of palm beach home is related to potential mishandling of classified documents when he left office in january of 2021 pack of the national archives retrieved 15 boxes from mar-a-lago earlier this year that contained what it believed to be presidential records as officials are attacking the must be properly preserve. eric trump argues his father is being unfairly targeted for political purposes vehicle is on. on. sake of my father has worked so collaboratively with the poor man's vehicle in fact, the lawyers had been working another, was totally shocking vehicle he had such an amazing relationship with the people and all of a sudden with no notice,
20 cards and 30 agents? this is just more political persecution of donald j. trump. >> another source telling me that fbi agents looked in every single office and safe, grabbing documents and boxes without going through them on the property. are letting agents were not judicious about what they do. compass and a city at the time of the raid -- watch. >> there was no reason not to issue a subpoena. returnable tomorrow. so that there is no claim that trump could have destroyed anything. there should have been a subpoena, not a search warrant. if it is a search warrant, it has to have a high level of calls, demonstrating the evidence would have been destroyed. >> now, all eyes are on attorney general merrick garland to law enforcement sources told fox news confirmed new about the
blitz. >> merrick garland almost certainly signed off on this. it hard to imagine a decision of this magnitude would be made without his knowledge and approval. >> the white house tells me it did not receive any advance notice about the fbi is made at mar-a-lago. >> todd: great work, is always better to give at for the update. meantime, lawmakers demanding information on the fbi raid on mar-a-lago because i've are calling out the beer of art apparent double standard in its treatment of former president donald trump in comparison to hunter biden. >> money, nice. truth be told, many of the words that you like to hear emanating hill, while frankly, can be repeated on television talk to varying degrees, were talking about sentiments of disgust and outrage that frankly seem to be more or less fitting the bill for most republicans. >> i find it very hard to believe they didn't know about
this. merrick garland, chris wray, come to the house judiciary committee this friday and answer our questions about this action today, which had never happened in american history back of what was -- what are you looking for? when i talk to president trump and have him give the information you're after? >> jim jordan exercised in a way that i have never seen him. this is from kevin mccarty. is as attorney general garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar. i seen an uptick of the department of justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization pack of republicans take back the house, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts and leave no stone unturned. here's kayleigh mcenany. >> this is very scary. there is a trend, never before used statues used to go after? donald trump national security advisor, donald trump campaign
manager, none the former president of the united states himself. wow. there is a banana republic, i think it is an understatement because it really feels like we are there and beyond. >> meantime, there is from the state house down in the great state of florida. ron desantis saying the rate of speed well with another escalation in the weaponisation of federal agencies against the regime's political opponents were people like hunter biden get traded by to with kid gloves back on, the regiment getting another 87,000 irs agent struggle against its adverse errors? banana republic. however, democrats on capitol hill are, well, celebrating, suggesting that this raid and things like it are long overdue. that's what happens when you break the law. try to steal an election and insight are deadly deadly interaction. donald trump should be in jail. i'm glad to see the fbi taking steps toward accountability.
california. >> it's not for me are members of congress to say what should happen. it should be where the facts laid them, and they have been very methodical. they have not been quick to do anything, but it sure is that they are concerned that serious crimes were committed and are following evidence. >> lesson, guys, i followed 4 white house administrations and to say this is a political earthquake in washington is to understate the magnitude of what has happen. philip klein of the national review said if they do not actually have the goods, this will make a political system that is already under stress that much more unstable. that should be alarming to anybody. back to you. >> todd: as someone who has been an easy covering so many administration, like yourself, you know turnabout is fair play. if we expect what happens in the house to happen. kevin corke, thank you, sir.
lettering and a former fbi agent and navy seal, jonathan gilliam. jonathan, someone has devoted his career to the fbi, how disgusted are you this morning? >> well, let me just tell you one thing before i go on with this is that what kevin just sat there at the end, and listening to the republican patent that i was hearing there, if it's business as usual for the republicans, that land that is only going to one direction. that and the democrats favor couple. that better doesn't mean anything. just like living in the fbi and serving an author doesn't mean anything for going on that oath or if if you're serving one agency that does the political bidding of the left. that's exactly what happened. i'm disgusted by a guy to several fbi and former fbi agents today, and some of them have talked to local authorities, and the local authorities literally set them, "i'm not sure beside yourself, i
trust you, but i'm not sure if i can even trust to work with the fbi anymore." that is phenomenal for local authorities to distrust the fbi, because that just tells you what the rest of the american public is on the reality of what's going on you. everyone i talked to in in washington, d.c., says that everything that they do, 90% of what they do, has to do with the january 6 hearing. not terrorism, not real problems in the united states, eighth january 60. that at the concentrating their efforts on. in this case, my sources in the secret service or any of those people who are out there that are thinking that this was just a show, let me tell you that even the secret service only knew 30 minutes before they were coming there. at first, i would think why didn't attorneys talk? the conduct of practice are. maybe company and they were coming there, but even the secret service didn't. for me, is a former fbi agent, i sit back and i look at my resume and my own resume has taken a
tremendous rate from this. once again, the fbi and the doj being weaponized and many of those agencies doing the bidding willingly because i would not have done this had i still been in. >> carley: it's not like what you're talking about is the fallout from this could be unprecedented, even within law enforcement agencies because it really does feel like something, right now, is missing from this story. like the punishment of the fbi raid doesn't mean the "crime" when you're talking about the national archives because there are any justifiable reason we could learn in the coming days for the fbi raid? >> not when you look at the president. commie himself, the former director of the fbi took his classified personal notes and gave them to a professor at columbia university who then lead to them to media, in which that case it was used to get a warrant. we have petraeus, a general who took his own personal notes and give them to a woman he was sleeping with so she could write a book about him.
this has happened over and over again. for this case, for them to go and look for personal notes is really, it is unjustifiable. i'll tell you something. there is evidence for what is occurring. if you look at the way that the trump fake dossier, the way that entire thing played up, you are saying that over and over again, where they go and they blow something up in the media, then they use a federal agency to go in and actually do an act. they take that information, they combine it, put it back out in media, which msnbc and cnn are already saying things about crimes. than the use that to go get further warrants and in the blow that up on congress to try and discredit this president. it keeps happening over and over. >> carley: on the flip side, cover up other stories like allegedly, within the fbi, covering up the hunter biden laptops scandal involving russian disinformation. >> along those lines, absolutely
know that you can listen to you have people like sandy berger, a former national security advisor was fun to have taken classified documents home hidden in his socks and he was not prosecuted. you also have record cases like james comey was accused of taking fbi material when he left the fbi. the history has been not to prosecute those cases. >> todd: jonathan, how many raids did you conduct on behalf of the glorified librarian that the national archive when you were an fbi agent? >> it was all the time. now, to be honest with you, that happened about as much as white supremacy arrest. it never occurs. those cases are unheard of at white supremacy, except in present pretty much because this is the thing is you. i was questioning where there is authority would come from for the fbi to get involved to the national archives can actually
reach out to the fbi and the doj to do this, but you have to understand something to the fbi cannot tell the doj what they want to go after. they can recommend it, but the doj has to approve it. on the flip side, the doj can tell the fbi we want you to go after this and that is very important for people to see the trickle-down effect. i wanted to thing. when we look at christopher wray, we see exactly the one mistake, and i'm a bit trump supporter, i think he did a great job as president, but you have to be very careful in loyalty and appointing these people that are in washington, d.c., people who orbit washington, d.c. christopher wray, james comey, moller, all these people work for the doj before they came to the fbi, and that is dangerous because they should have taken the director from the fbi who grew up in the fbi and appointed him. when you take a doj lawyer and you put him in charge of the fbi, his loyalty is going to be to the doj, and that's what
occurred. >> carley: is a way they go from here? the fbi is now reportedly in possession of these boxes of documents record happens next also, what does this mean? does this mean that the former president is under criminal investigation was in a speaker at a very good question. they've been screaming criminal investigation all throughout the january sixth proceedings. my question is that they go there, really, for national archives are they going their hunting for other information that they can further use to criminally go after the former president? this is the reality. i can predict for you this is what is going to happen because they will use this information, as i've said before, to go to the mainstream media and push the south. then they will go to judges, get more warrants, i think we are just seeing the beginning of a widespread push to get information from donald trump gecko and the people that are around him to intimidate them >> todd: speed of trump's lawyers need to be in court in less than four hours to make
sure not one page of those documents is looked at and tell privilege and other privilege and other things are argued to make sure that nothing gets reviewed until the lawyers sign up on it. jonathan gilliam, when i'm in charge, you're going to be the fbi director. meantime, federal judge ruling that the biden administration -- the policy also known as the mic and protection protocol requires migrants who claim asylum in the u.s. to wait for the legal hearing and make a copy of the department of homeland security and nothing out of the ruling that migrants were no longer be subject to the policy. less than 6,000 migrants have been returned to mexico under the policy by the biden administration. border crossing shattering records in 2022 is more american:president biden to secure our border. stephen miller, new york city's mayor continues to slam the governor of texas as migrant busses armload in sanctuary cities.
good morning. >> good morning. jawdropping numbers of illegal immigrants crossing into our southern border, and it's set a new record actually with well over 1.8 million in less than a year. they keep coming by the thousands every day. even as the biden administration continues to deny there's a problem secretary of homeland security claiming just last month, our border is under control. >> the border is secure. the border, we are working to make the border more secure. that has been a historic challenge. >> experts say the border is anything but secure, and it's creating a humanitarian and national security crisis took a former ice director tom homan think biden's open borders agenda has now but become synonymous with death in america last. the floodgates are wide open. american security and sovereignty are being disastrously mishandle. a recent warmack shows 38%
wanted to see the flow of migrant control tokyo that is up 10% since 2020. meanwhile, texas governor greg abbott in newark mayor eric adams continue to trade blows over the buzzing of migrants to the city. >> this humanitarian part of being an american and i think that there is nothing more entire american than what he is displaying right now. >> and governor abbott reminding adams there is a way to solve the problem, saying "if the mayor wants a solution to the present, he said:president biden to take immediate action to secure the border." something the president and is willing to do. a bit plan to continue to send those busloads of migrants to new york and d.c. until the administration puts measures that were working to secure the border back in place. >> carley: thank you. let's bring in peter lumaj, senate candidate was also illegal immigrant who was born and raised in communist albania. peter, good morning to you. what you may to make make of
this fight between texas and new york city and why do things go from here? >> this administration is promoting chaos and lawlessness of the border. they are enticing illegals to come to the united states for the benefit that we offer to the back. if you live in connecticut and your illegal, you can attend you can't as an in-state student and pay in situation, yet if someone lives in the year, they would pay out-of-state tuition. if you want to get a driver's license in connecticut, for example, in your illegal, you have to do is just sign a statement, whereas if my son wants to get a driver's license and was born in waco, i would have to produce the social security card, the passport, birth certificate, proof of address, you name it. we are encouraging people who are violating our laws and punishing american citizens because this is not the right way to handle immigration
program for illegal immigration i benefited from the loss of this country to come to the united states but added it legally with my family pick i have no problems of history might immigration and do it legally. promoting the chaos and lawlessness that this current administration is doing is not serving anyone of us well and is jeopardizing the safety of our citizens and it must be stopped. >> todd: immigration should be a major concern as voters in four states had to the polls today, including in connecticut where he is on the g.o.p. ballot in the state than it. what you think you are the best choice for connecticut republicans are more broadly, what you think think this is the year that connecticut has at least one red seat in either congress or the senate? >> this midterm election is one of the most significant elections since reagan, not on the lincoln. we are fighting for the soul of this country. what's happening right now, there is a confrontation between two irreconcilable political entities with his state is a man is what is happening last night
with president trump raid. the fbi actually raided his residence. we have to defeat statism. the scope and weight of the government in the united states is beyond the constitutional limit because of the founding fathers wanted us to have a government with enumerator towers and right now, i think the government doesn't have the enumerator powers because they have become part of every aspect of our iceberg i think it would be a bill that they does pathway go up to 87,000 irs agents that we are going to hire. that is the greater force than the united kingdom because i were to go over ordinary folks like you and i. >> carley: that's something that former president talked about a lot when he says that the powers that be are just targeting him, there are also targeting the american people as well pack a lot of people are very concerned about that is money. thank you so much for joining us this money because >> todd: thank you so much, so. >> carley: and all of this

280,000 cases diagnosed every year, like it is mentioned, we still have nearly 50,000 women who lose their life every single year from breast cancer. the key is to make sure that we have early detection. that's why it's so important to see a doctor regularly for your routine physical >> sometimes they can pick up early breast cancer, a lump on physical exams and you can pick it up with, again, a blood test your yearly mammogram, which for most people should begin at age 40. >> carley: her family, while releasing the statement that i just read, also said her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the olivia newton-john foundation fund dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. how effective is that in the fight against cancer? >> so, we know that olivia newton-john, she underwent chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and i think it's incredible to look outside the box, to look at herbal medicine,

some of the most important reaction, from the company themselves. eric trump was on hand at easing his father actually had a very good working relationship with the national archives on which document should be overturned, it is important to note that the president wasn't at mar-a-lago that i. over the trump tower in your cities of the documents were not at risk of being destroyed. if that was the concern of this. >> todd: to that point, jonathan turley said why wouldn't a subpoena have sufficed in this situation? it is an excellent question. we don't have an answer to pick up focusing on the fbi for a moment, we just heard christopher wray says the bureau has limited resources to do what they need to do. yet, they somehow find the resources to go after parents, to go after donald trump on behalf of the national archives, but no opportunity, no resources to go after supreme court harassers and of course, hunter biden. the big takeaway that i have
here, where is the fear on the part of christopher wray? where is the fear on the part of merrick garland? that when the republicans take over the house in a matter of weeks, that they are going to be brought to the house for your ex. they should be shaking in their boots, fearful of what is going to have been. yet, the demonstrated no fear whatsoever. they're just going with business as usual or their business as usual, which is articulating and exercising their democratic agenda. >> carley: at the doj, of course, should be a trusted, nonpolitical organization, but if you look at recent history, you have liberal fbi agents promoting the compressor hooks because you have liberal fbi agents allegedly covering up the hunter biden laptop, calling a disinformation, and then that leaking to the media. you also have the doj calling parents domestic terrorists, that area refusing to go after protesters outside the homes of supreme court justices, even after an assassination attempt to. now, it is ask yourself, are we on a turning point here and
where do we go from here if the doj, which like i said, should be nonpolitical, turned into, essentially, a branch of the democratic party? rnc chairman ronna mcdaniel thing democrats continually weaponize the bureaucracy against republicans. this weight is outrageous. governor christie enamels are saying the fbi raid on donald trump's home is in unprecedented attack. >> todd: there's also this notion of, look, if the government can come after the president of the united states and donald trump, what are they going to do to you, the little person. here is a former house speaker newt gingrich on that. >> 30 fbi agents can take over the house of a former president of the united states and probable candidate for president, what can they do to you? and when you look at the cats who are trying to add 85,000 irs
agents to the already existing 77,000, that will mean 162,000 irs agents. compared, for example, to 25,000 people who we have on the border or trying to control the body. the purpose of it as simple. they want to control your vehicle speed >> todd: there's always get back to what does this mean for the elections going forward. this just mobilized 74 million trump borders do not sit out the midterms. it re-energize them. any potential polling bump that you see that democrats got from abortion over the last couple of weeks, wiped out because this just ticked off a lot of republicans, and a lot of people who voted for tarp. they're going to make their voices at. >> carley: the question is question is whether a legal justification for this rate or was it purely political? we had a former u.s. attorney was on msnbc. is at this issue with the national archives could carry a

or teachers unions don't fight for kids is apparent, but holly, they aren't even fighting for the teachers that pay them, who are the benefiting? >> that is exactly what they are benefiting, and promoting. at the end of the day, these teachers, they need other avenues to be able to exercise their skill and craft. it here in georgia, we can get something passed like an expensive school choice piece of legislation, not only would that give our students are to make an opportunity to get away from the vice grip that these overeating school boards and the built-in agenda is in our school system, it will also -- it would incentivize the private sector and give our teachers opportunity to be able to go elsewhere, outside the public's oldest and be able to teach in the classroom without having to be forced to teach these woke agenda ideals. >> todd: all you want is for your kid to be able to complete. not doing that here in our country back thank you very
