Rep. Ralph Norman Issues Statement on FBI’s Raid of President Trump’s Residence

Washington, D.C., August 8, 2022 | Austin Livingston (202-740-8937)
On Monday night, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) issued the following statement concerning the FBI's raid of former President Trump's residence:
"President Trump left office 584 days ago. Yet we’re to believe it’s just business as usual for the FBI to raid his private residence in search of some documents… 584 days after he departed the White House? What nonsense.
"There is every reason to question the motives behind this raid, especially when you consider the lack of attention to Hillary’s email server, the Carter Page warrants, the Russian “collusion” hoax, the utterly damning evidence on Hunter Biden’s laptop that still has not been properly pursued by investigators, etc.
"This raid on a former President’s home is unprecedented and has all the markings of a total abuse of political power. It looks like Deep State malfeasance at its worst, and every American ought to be alarmed and outraged over this.
"The House is heading back later this week for the Democrat’s Inflation Enhancement Act. FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland need to be in front of House committees by Friday, if not sooner."
