“That’s what happens when you break the law, try to steal an election, and incite a deadly insurrection,” Jayapal tweeted.
“Donald Trump should be in jail. I’m glad to see the FBI taking steps towards accountability,” she added.

The radical response contrasted the views of many Americans who saw the raid as a political witchhunt and government overreach.
The battle over the raid at Mar-a-Lago will likely continue as the nation is divided over the government’s attacks on the former president that seek to blame him for the events of Jan. 6 and keep him from making a comeback bid for the White House in 2024.
