House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) promised on Monday to launch a full investigation into Attorney General Merrick Garland and the FBI’s raid on former President Trump’s Florida home, Mar-A-Lago.
McCarthy tweeted, “I’ve seen enough. The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization. When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned. Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar,” he warned.
Indeed, , Should Republicans take back the House at the 2022 congressional midterms, they will acquire the ability to launch subpoenas into the raid. The House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Reform Committee can focus on the events and decision-making process that led to the search warrant against Trump.
The House Judiciary Republicans wrote, “This is what happens in third world countries. Not the United States. Doesn’t the FBI have better things to do than harass the former PRESIDENT?”
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel wrote, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Countless times we have examples of Democrats flaunting the law and abusing power with no recourse, including Hunter Biden. Democrats continually weaponize the bureaucracy against Republicans. This raid is outrageous.”
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar- A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump wrote in a statement. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
