If the GOP takes back the Senate this fall, Sen. Grassley (R-IA) said he’ll look into the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid.
The Senate Judiciary Committee’s top Republican, Chuck Grassley, spoke with Breitbart News Saturday on Sirius XM about the FBI’s April 9 raid of former Pres. Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion. According to Grassley, there is an FBI “double standard” in relation to Trump that does not exist for other political figures such as Pres. Biden’s son Hunter Biden and Hillary Clinton.
“I’m taking it in a larger context… and there’s the fact that the FBI has had a double standard for a long time. You can go all the way back to Steele, you can go back to Carter Page, FISA warrants, and you can even go back to Clinton emails,” Grassley said during an interview with Fox News host Matt Boyle. “And it just seems to me that they have a political bias at the FBI.”
“And then I’ve just recently – you’ve heard me testify to the political bias of beginning a Trump investigation and stopping a Hunter Biden investigation. So it’s fair to ask if there’s still political bias in what we’re doing now, given that.”
“The fact is, Comey wrote his exoneration statement before he even interviewed her. We have Clinton wiping her server clean. There’s no evidence that President Trump erased records,” Grassley said on Saturday. “You have…Concerns about Clinton’s email server having been hacked and perhaps jeopardizing national security… And then there’s the issue of the president not being cooperative. We need to know those facts,” he added.
“This could potentially become the most significant scandal in Department history,” Boyle mentioned. “Do you think that if Republicans win control of Congress that there will be additional investigations into the DOJ’s lack of transparency from either body?”
“Well, a search of a former president’s home is clearly unusual. It might even be in violation of his constitutional rights… Consider how he said it back in June: if you want any more papers, let me know. Unless they can show that the President was not collaborating, I believe this remarkable step needs to be at least inquired about and, in some cases, legitimately opposed,” Grassley added.
