GOP Holds Garland And FBI Accountable
Republican Senator Rick Scott recently appeared on Fox News to discuss the recent raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
Scott explained that the Republican Party has full intentions to get to the bottom of Attorney General Merrick Garland’s reasoning for why he signed off on the FBI raid to begin with.
In transcript provided by Fox, Scott said, “I’ll tell you what. If Christopher Wray and Attorney General Garland, if they want to have a reputation when they finish these jobs… both of them have said, alright, because I’ve talked to both of them.”
Scott then said, “They believe in Congress’ right of oversight. If they believe in Congress’ right of oversight, they should be able to give us all the information. If they want to give it to me in a classified setting, they can do that.”
Adding, “But the American public needs to have a much better understanding of why they did this, what information did they have, why the judge made the decision. There’s a lot of unanswered questions here, and they’re hurting themselves, and they’re hurting this great country.”
