Former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard criticized the FBI's raid on Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence, saying it "changed the country that we grew up in."

"Now, whatever your views are on Donald Trump, there is no denying that the unprecedented raid on his Palm Beach home earlier this week has set our country on a dangerous new course, and there's no turning back. The FBI's raid on Mar-a-Lago changed the country that we grew up in," Gabbard said Friday in an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Trump was the first person to announce the FBI's raid on his residence Monday, saying, "These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is under siege, raided and occupied by a large group of FBI agents."

A federal judge unsealed the search warrant Friday. A list of items taken from Mar-a-Lago shows the FBI recovered eleven sets of classified documents, including some top-secret documents, roughly 20 boxes of items, binders of photos, a handwritten note, the executive grant of clemency for Roger Stone, and information about French president Emanuel Macron.

"We grew up believing that, 'Hey, our government will apply the law equally to all Americans, whether you're a Republican or a Democrat.' We're seeing more and more that, that country no longer exists. Law enforcement at the highest levels of government, whether it's the DOJ, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and now even the IRS have been weaponized to target the political opponents of the uni-party, the permanent Washington and the Biden regime," Gabbard continued.

Attorney General Merrick Garland responded to the criticism of the FBI following the raid, saying, "Let me address recent unfounded attacks on the professionalism of the FBI and Justice Department agents and prosecutors. I will not stand by silently when their integrity is unfairly attacked."

"Attorney General Merrick Garland has already issued a stark warning to anyone who dares to disagree with these tactics that are all hallmarks of a dictatorship," Gabbard said.

"So, you are not allowed to disagree with the FBI. That is the new message. The security state will label you an extremist for daring to challenge or disagree with the regime's weaponization of law enforcement," she added.
