(RepublicanWire.org) – Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) asserted Tuesday that if the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Monday raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was merely about “inconsequential archives,” then “it will be viewed as a political tactic” and thwart any credibility of the January 6 Committee.
“DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of January 6 investigation,” tweeted Cuomo.
Cuomo wasn’t the only democrat to criticize the raid. Former Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang also condemned the FBI raid.
Ted Cruz Tweeted in response to Yang, “Dems panicking. Realizing that abusing DOJ/FBI is going to back fire.”
Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon told Fox News that “the FBI right now is the Gestapo.”
“We’re at war,” Bannon said. “We’re at a political and ideological war, and they’ve obviously weaponized the Justice Department.”
“This had to go up the chain of command through Merrick Garland,” Bannon added. “This is about pure power politics.”
“They’re absolutely petrified that Trump is going to announce in the next couple of weeks and win the Republican nomination, win the White House,” he explained.
