During Sirius XM’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast Tuesday, the host opened her show with a rant against Attorney General Merrick Garland and the reported claim that the FBI raid was to find “classified documents” that Trump allegedly took from the White House. She said this is about January 6, and if you believe it’s not, then “your head is in the sky.” It can be heard from the top of the show here where it also airs on Spotify.
“Some 30 plus agents descending on Mar-a-Lago before sunrise reportedly seeking classified documents that he [Trump] allegedly took from the White House when he left office back in 2021,” Kelly explained in her opening segment. “And in a word, my response to that is: bulls***. Bulls***. There is no way that’s what they were searching for. There’s no way. I watched all the coverage last night … this is about January 6th.”
“This is about January 6 and the never-ending desire to get Donald Trump on something,” she added. “They don’t want him to run for election again. They want him behind bars. They want him disqualified under the Presidential Records Act or whatever they can possibly find. They don’t care.”
“They’re mad he did not get convicted on the first or the second impeachment,” the former Fox News host continued. “They’re mad that he did not get pursued criminally by the New York [District Attorney]. They are mad that Russia-Gate fell apart. And they are mad that he’s leading in the polls. He’s crushing [FL. Gov. Ron] DeSantis. His candidates of choice all made it into office, virtually all of them last week.”
The host said the “Democrats play dirty” and slammed Merrick Garland, who she said “is very clearly willing to go along with that. He’s been moving in the concentric circles toward Donald Trump over the past several weeks.”
Kelly then listed all the people in Trump’s circle who have been subpoenaed, and noted “we’ve seen close Trump advisors in handcuffs.”
“This is really getting alarming,” the podcast host admitted. “And the American public deserves answers. Did Attorney General Merrick Garland personally sign off on this? Hello, yes, he did. There is zero chance that he didn’t.”
Kelly admitted we don’t “know for sure,” but repeated the line that there’s “zero chance he didn’t.”
She also blasted the White House’s initial reponse that they learned about the raid from Twitter: “Sure they did.”
“Sure, okay,” Kelly stated. “Just like they had no idea that that letter from the school boards was coming out asking the DOJ to label parents domestic terrorists. The White House had no idea. Oh, really? They orchestrated the whole thing. We found that out later thanks to some records requests by some well-meaning citizens.”
The former NBC News host then called for the proof of “FBI’s justification for this raid,” noting that “it’s 90 days before a mid-term election; show the American public what did the former president allegedly do.”
She also questioned how it is that Trump gets raided, but “Hunter Biden doesn’t get raided, and Jim Biden doesn’t get raided, and Hillary Clinton never get raided.”
She closed out her opening segment by slamming the “politicization of our law enforcement agencies,” calling it “deeply disturbing” regardless of whether you hate Trump or not.
