Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy has promised to investigate the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, specifically with an eye towards Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Kevin McCarthy had better be serious about this. Millions of Americans were shocked and outraged about the unprecedented raid.
Republicans in general, had better realize that we are now operating in a different political environment. Democrats have crossed a line and must be punished for it.
House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) promised on Monday to launch a full-throated investigation into Attorney General Merrick Garland and the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s home.
Trump announced in a statement that the FBI had raided Trump’s Florida home, Mar-A-Lago. In response to the raid, McCarthy said that Republicans will investigate every aspect of what led to the FBI raid against the former president.
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.

Other Republicans commented about the raid on Twitter:
Let’s be clear: This is a brazen weaponization of the FBI by Biden’s DOJ against his political opponent—while giving their political allies free passes.
It’s exactly why the IRS shouldn’t get an army of 87,000 more agents.
House Republicans will hold them accountable next year.

The @FBI raid on President Trump was approved by Director Wray, who also claimed that the illegal FISA warrants used to spy on Trump were constitutional.
Today’s raid is outrageous and unjust, but predictable.

Bill and Hillary Clinton took $28,000 worth of furnishings from the White House.
Obama violated the Presidential Records Act.
Why did the FBI not raid their houses?
This is a political witch hunt to take down President Trump.

The FBI is raiding President Trump’s home in Maralago!
This is the rogue behavior of communist countries, NOT the United States of America!!!
These are the type of things that happen in countries during civil war.
The political persecution MUST STOP!!! pic.twitter.com/i4DYygLsvj
