Mar-a-Lago raid was designed to intimidate, says Stuart Varney

Stuart Varney, host of Varney Co., discusses the impact of the FBI raid on Trump's Mar-a-Lago home on the Republican primaries, arguing that the raid was designed to intimidate, and failed during his My Take, Wednesday.

STUART VARNEY: If the Mar-a-Lago raid was designed to intimidate, it failed.

Three races tell the story.

In Wisconsin, Trump backed Tim Michels beat Mike Pence-backed Jessica Kleefisch by five points.

In Connecticut, Trump supported Leora Levy, who won a 10 point victory. The votes that put her so far ahead came from Connecticut's small towns!

That is increasingly the Trump country. She beat Themis Klarides, who was the Republican establishment candidate.

In Washington State, Trump endorsed Joe Kent, who beat six-term Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, who had voted to impeach Trump.

The candidates he endorsed won their races on the day of an unprecedented and widely condemned raid on Trump's house.

Andrew Yang, who has no love for the former president, tweeted that the raid made it easier for Trump to claim he was the target of unjust persecution. And that is the point, isn't it? The left has weaponized the state, using it to persecute their political opponents.

If that raid doesn't turn up damning and conclusive evidence of criminal wrongdoing, there's going to be hell to pay.
