GOP Leadership in the House has responded forcefully to the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago, with GOP leader Kevin McCarthy directly calling out Attorney General Merrick Garland, and the Republicans on the Judiciary Committee tearing into the FBI for the raid.

McCarthy’s statement was straight to the point.

McCarthy’s tweet came hours after former President Donald Trump emailed supporters announcing the FBI was raiding his home in Mar-a-Lago. Trump was not at the resort at the time of the raid. It also comes after Garland in recent weeks indicated he was serious about moving forward on investigating the former president in relation to the riot at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee had strong words for and about the FBI after the raid became public. There is currently no indication that anyone on the Judiciary Committee or at the White House was made aware of the raid before it happened and was announced by Trump.

Individual members of the committee also had comments to add.

The Republicans are currently expected to take the House of Representatives in the November midterm election.

The raid appears to stem from classified documents that were removed from the White House and taken to Mar-a-Lago. The National Archives have been working for months to get those documents back to no avail. There does not seem to be any link between the raid and the Jan. 6 investigation put on by a separate House committee and one from the Justice Department.
