LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): I'm Laura Ingraham. This is the Ingraham angle from what feels like a banana republic tonight. The deep state's revenge. That is the focus of tonight's angle.


INGRAHAM: Yes. Wiley Coyote thinks he finally caught the roadrunner. Well, the search warrant served on Mar-a-Lago this morning had Donald Trump's name on it.

But the real target of this investigation isn't Trump. The real target of this investigation is you or anyone who dares to call out and take on the rank corruption of the D.C. establishment.

This is the deep state's revenge. They're trying to show all of us that we'll be destroyed if we fight them. If we question the repeated failures of the Pentagon leadership. If we make serious – I'm talking about serious moves to disrupt the status quo here in Washington. You know, the status quo that protects the powerful as long as they play the game. Now for decades. They got away with selling us out by letting in 20 million illegals flooding across our border. They sold us out by sending our manufacturing jobs to China. They sold us out by wasting trillions on stupid wars in the Middle East. And now they're selling us out by wasting billions, billions more in Ukraine. A year after thirteen of our service members were murdered in Afghanistan due to our own generals' incompetence. And think about this tonight.

Still, no one has been fired. You think Trump would have ever put away with any put up with any of this? And if he got back into power, they know he would hold all the right people accountable for what they've done.

If the DOJ had a real serious case against Trump that was threatening the republic, they would have charged him months ago. But the word had obviously gone out from the White House that he needed to be punished and he needed to be tormented in any way possible before the midterms. And of course, you can always count on the press, right, to never question the powers that be when the powers that be are Democrat.
