  • The FBI raided former President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate on Monday.
  • Agents seized 11 sets of documents that officials said were deemed classified. 
  • Conservative pundit Scott Jennings said either Trump has to be charged or Attorney General Merrick Garland resigns. 

A former GOP advisor said "there's no going back now" after the FBI raided former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate. 

"I sort of felt this week like we're all at the cirucus. We're all under the big top. And this can only end in one of two ways: he's got to be indicted or Merrick Garland has to resign," conservative commentator Scott Jennings told CNN

Trump is reportedly being investigated for violating three laws, including the Espionage Act. The FBI recovered 11 sets of classified documents, including some marked as top secret during the raid. 

Jennings said there's no way the Attorney General could raid the former president's house, say they think he's violating three laws and then not press any charges. 

He added that he thinks the raid was justified. 

"If you think there are classified documents... if you've got top secret information, which we don't know what it is by the way, but if you got these documents and they're not supposed to be out in the open then absolutely," Jennings said.

He added: "But this can not end in any other way. I mean how could it possibly end with just 'well okay, we got them back and it's over now.' There's no going back now."
