Dr. William Muck discussed the political impact of the Mar A Lago raid

The FBI conducted a search at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Sources confirmed to NewsNation that the execution of the search warrant was linked to an investigation into whether or not the former president mishandled presidential records related to the discovery of boxes full of White House records that were taken to Mar-a-Lago after Trump left office.

Dr. William Muck, professor and chair of the political science department at North Central College, interviewed with WGN-TV and WGN-AM, where he addressed the political impact of the Mar A Lago raid.

“The president is facing a precarious legal situation,” said Muck. “He's facing this investigation regarding the presidential records act; he still has that investigation in Georgia as well as the January 6th investigation. So, he's got to flip the narrative. He's got to make this, as you said, a political witch hunt. And as I’m watching this—both short-term and long-term—I'm curious to see how republicans are responding. Trump is going to put a lot of pressure on them to say that you need to buy-in to the fact that this is all one big witch hunt, and then you've got to put me above the law. What we've seen over the last month or so, is some republicans are slightly pulling away from him.”
