358. Trump Raided By The FBI

August 12, 2022

Donald Trump’s residence was raided by the FBI this week. We are still not exactly clear as to the reasoning behind the raid. Also, the Inflation Reduction Act looks like it is real close to becoming law.

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Justin Haskins, and Chris Talgo present episode 358 of the In The Tank Podcast. Donald Trump’s residence was raided by the FBI this week. We are still not exactly clear as to the reasoning behind the raid. Also, the Inflation Reduction Act looks like it is real close to becoming law, which along with raising taxes, pushing further down the path of unreliable energy, and doing absolutely nothing to reduce inflation, will increase the power of the IRS.
