The political world was stunned this Wednesday when the Washington Post broke the story that late last month, the FBI raided the Alexandria, Virginia home of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

FBI agents departed the home with “various records,” and them ever obtaining the warrant in the first place suggests that FBI officials “argued to a federal judge they had reason to believe Manafort could not be trusted to turn over all records in response to a grand jury subpoena,” in the description of the Washington Post.

Looking back at what else happened on July 26, when the FBI raided Manafort’s home, casts the actions of the president since then in a new light. Trump, judging off his Twitter feed, knew about the raid — and was unhappy about it.

In the early morning hours of July 26, just a short while after the raid itself had taken place, Trump tweeted angrily about the then-Acting Director of the FBI.

He wrote:

‘Why didn’t A.G. Sessions replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got big dollars ($700,000) for his wife’s political run from Hillary Clinton and her representatives. Drain the Swamp!’

Trump’s allegations against McCabe are false, but it now makes more sense why he even made them in the first place. What this indicates on a very basic level is that Trump still does not have the respect for the nation’s intelligence agencies that is necessary for a president of the United States.
