If you think you’re disgusted by the actions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) under the authorization of Florida federal magistrate, Jude Bruce Reinhart, then you might’ve missed the comments by conservative podcast and radio host Dan Bongino on Monday evening’s edition of “Jesse Watters Primetime.”

Bongino didn’t mince words when asked for his reaction to the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s private residence at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida earlier in the day on Monday.

Below is a transcript of the first half of Bongino's comments from Monday evening:

This is some third world bullshit right here,” Bongino said before explaining. “Let me say it again, third world bullshit! I mean every word of that, and I don’t care that it’s cable news. I was a federal agent, I raised my right hand, and I swore to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and I love this country. This is a freakin’ disgrace! A disgrace!

We don’t live in Cuba. We don’t live under [North Korean dictator] Kim Jong-un. We live in a Constitutional Republic, a representative democracy. You have a bunch of FBI agents raiding the home of a former president because they don’t like his politics?! Are you kidding me?!

You’ve spent this whole show, Jesse, and I’ve spent my entire time either on Fox or on my podcast exposing the left for claiming Russia interfered in an election as [failed Democratic presidential nominee] Hillary Clinton paid off a bunch of foreign agents, her team literally, to fabricate a story that occupied the nation for four years. What’s she doing right now? Getting a manicure in freakin’ Chappaqua! She’s not doing squat! Nothing! Hunter Biden is having sex on tape while doing crack, while doing crack, and what is he doing? He’s living in a Malibu mansion!

And yet the president, the former president, who whether you agree with him or not on his claims about the [2020] election — whether you agree or not — we still live in a country where you are allowed to challenge an election. There’s even a process, the ECA [Electoral Count Act]. It’s a process. How do I know it’s a process? Because some people are trying to reform it.

You may not like it, but now you send the FBI? Let me tell you something. I have paid due deference to the FBI for a long time, and a lot of listeners didn’t like it cause I worked with some very good people over there who have since retired. The management of the FBI has now shredded any single shred, sliver of credibility this agency had left. Nobody will take them seriously from this point on. It is over!

Bongino had more to say in his justifiably fiery rant, which you can view in its entirety at the top.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again — where do you turn and what do you do when your government turns its back on you?
