House Judiciary GOP Puts Merrick Garland on Notice with Major Demand

On its surface, the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago doesn’t appear terribly neutral, and much of the nation knows it.

This was, quite literally, elements of a Democratic President’s administration raiding the home of his presumptive opponent in the next election – the sort of stuff that we normally see in third-world countries, carried out by crackpot tyrants.

And, to make matters worse, the DOJ has refused to release the all-important affidavit that led to the search warrant used in the raid, despite demands by former President Donald Trump to do so immediately.

Now, as this profound scandal continues to evolve, Attorney General Merrick Garland has been put on notice.

Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee formalized their promise to investigate the Department of Justice and FBI, should Republicans take the majority in November, by sending “preservation notices” to both entities on Monday.

The Republicans requested in the notices, addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray, an array of documents related to last week’s FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, and further requested that Garland and Wray preserve such documents for if and when Republicans have majority control and are able to conduct a formal investigation.

The White House received a similar notice.

A third nearly identical preservation notice was also sent to White House chief of staff Ron Klain.

The group was not about to pull any punches, either.

The Republicans began the three notices by describing the raid on Trump’s home as a “shocking escalation” of power directed against a political opponent.

“The FBI’s unprecedented raid of President Trump’s residence is a shocking escalation of the Biden Administration’s weaponization of law-enforcement resources against its political opponents,” the Republicans stated.

The text of these notices can be read below:
