The Roundtable: Mar-a-Lago & the Smoking Gun

Will the FBI's raid on the former president's mansion send him back to the White House?

A panel of experts joined Roundtable to discuss the Mar-a-Lago raid, gun policy, free speech and other current issues. In this segment they discuss the results of the ongoing investigation of Trump's handling of classified information.

Jon Najarian says that "if there is no real smoking gun here, you've basically reelected Trump, because, his supporters are extremely strong." 

He continues, "I count myself as both a libertarian who thinks most politicians suck. I think they're horrible at managing fiscal matters. I think they're horrible about the way they line their pockets. I'm not for stealing, which is what most politicians do— they trade on insider information."

And reforming the system seems difficult if not impossible. 

"It was supposed to be done away with," he says, "and yet even though president Obama was ready to put pen to paper, they carved out all of the things that had any teeth about people trading on bills that are about to be passed and so forth." 

"So Is it surprising that Americans don't trust government? No. And like I said, if there's not a smoking gun here, Trump's gonna be the next president."
