WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. August Pfluger (TX-11) released a statement Tuesday following the FBI raid of former President Trump’s home in Mar-A-Lago:
“America’s trust in our Justice Department has reached its lowest point in history. If this raid deals with President Trump’s handling of documents, then every American needs to wake up and understand the magnitude of this event - a continuation of the biggest political scandal in U.S history where Democrats, the media, and others in the government have been plotting against President Trump at every turn. Raiding the home of a former president is the type of action that authoritarian governments take to dispose of political threats.
“The lack of information over the last 12 hours from the DOJ is also deeply concerning. The leaders of the DOJ and FBI must be public, transparent, and accountable. Congress is in session on Friday. AG Garland and FBI Director Wray must come before the Judiciary Committee. The American people deserve to know everything.
“If the Department of Justice can do this to a former President, they can do it to you.”
