Rep. Crawford Statement on FBI Raid of Former President Trump’s Home

8/9/2022

Washington — Representative Rick Crawford (AR-01) issued the following statement on news that the FBI conducted a raid on the home of former president Donald Trump:

“The unprecedented FBI raid on a former president’s home, by a Justice Department now under the control of a president of the other party, less than two months before the first states begin early voting in this year’s Congressional elections, puts our nation on dangerous ground.

“The Russia Collusion Hoax, and the slow-walking of the investigation into shady Biden family business deals involving China and Ukraine, have already eroded Americans’ former rock-solid faith in the Justice Department and our nation’s core principle of equal justice before the law. This latest apparent abuse of power seems likely to compound that crisis.

“The Biden White House, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and FBI leadership have a lot of questions to answer for what looks like an egregious and dangerous politicization of our nation’s law enforcement apparatus. The new Congress will begin seeking answers to those questions in January.”
