 Republican Representative Dan Crenshaw: Breaking into Trump's home was politically motivated, and it's hard to justify


Republican Representative Dan Crenshaw Breaking into Trump's home was politically motivated, and it's hard to justify



Crenshaw confirmed in an interview with CNN that the FBI's move was political



Republican Representative Dan Crutch said Sunday that the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, was difficult to justify for Republicans because of the unprecedented nature of the raid.


In an interview with CNN, Crenshaw added that the FBI's move was political.




He continued, "This is a very unprecedented measure as we are going after a former president who might run again. You cannot separate her legal side from her political side.



He asked: Why do you want to be an extremist? I think that's why you see so much opposition from Republicans. You see, everyone is against this because it doesn't seem fair.


Crenshaw said he had not seen any evidence that the Justice Department had asked Trump to return the documents. He lamented what he described as the long-term collapse of the Ministry of Justice.


Texas lawmakers criticized Republicans who demanded an end to FBI funding after the study, but added that 99 percent of Republicans are not. Crenshaw commented that these calls make us sound like radical Democrats. 99% of Republicans are not on this train.



  • He continued, "What we want is accountability and transparency, and our criticism of the FBI and the Department of Justice is completely justified and does not lead to a crazy person attacking the FBI... It is a clear mistake."
  • Trump and Republicans have described the storm as an example of government overreach, with some describing it as President Joe Biden's attempt to harm his potential opponent in 2024.
  • Trump's lawyers said Friday that Trump is considering a request that a private attorney review evidence the FBI seized from Mar-a-Lago.
