Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) joins the growing chorus of prominent GOP leaders to call for an immediate investigation into the raid at former President Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago.
Stefanik issued a statement.
“The FBI’s raid on President Trump’s Florida home is a dark day in American history. The political weaponization of the FBI and Department of Justice is an actual threat to democracy,” Stefanik said. “There is a reason that Americans no longer trust these agencies.”
“This is the same corrupt agency that illegally fabricated FISA warrants, knowingly deceived Americans about Russian ‘collusion’ for years, and weaponized itself to perpetuate this hoax with their all-too-eager mainstream media accomplices,” she said.
“This is the same agency that protected Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and continues to lie to protect Hunter Biden,” Stefanik said. “This is the same agency that refuses to provide accountability and transparency into the deadly limo crash in Schoharie County in my district.”
“There must be an immediate investigation and accountability into Joe Biden and his Administration’s weaponizing this department against their political opponents – the likely 2024 Republican candidate for President of the United States,” Stefanik concluded.
