Mitch McConnell Refuses To Talk About FBI Raid Of Trump

( Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has flipflopped numerous times when it comes to President Trump and “America First” policies. Most recently, he issued only his silence on the FBI raids of the former president while at a Kentucky press conference, according to Fox News.

“I’m here to talk about the flood and recovery from the flood,” when asked about the raid.

The FBI executed a search warrant approved by Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland. The National Archives reported earlier this year that Trump has retained classified documents after leaving office. After a quiet investigation by the Justice Department, a raid was approved at Trump’s estate in Mar-a-Lago. The Presidential Records Act of 1978 gives Congress the power to govern records of the president.

The Senate GOP has been slower than those in the House to respond to the incident. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Minority Whip Steve Scalise criticized the FBI for the raid, but McConnell and his top deputy Minority Whip John Thune have not issued a comment.

Trump’s safe was also broken into, but there was nothing in it, according to a source familiar with Fox News.

Senator Rand Paul told Fox & Friends that an investigation into the conduct of the Justice Department might have to wait until November when Republicans take back Congress. Should an investigation find that Garland misused his powers to try to get at a political opponent, then he may be impeached.

A former Clinton White House advisor, Barbara Heineback, told Sky News host Andrew Bolt that the FBI gave Hillary Clinton several days to delete her email when it became public that she used a private email server to communicate classified information, rather than State Department email accounts on a federal server. The former secretary of state was never prosecuted for violating federal law.

You couldn’t even get mainstream to talk about it—though same thing with Hunter—it is so one sided,” Heineback said.
