Governor Kim Reynolds and the five Republicans in Iowa’s congressional delegation are calling on federal officials to release details about the FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home. Senator Joni Ernst is skeptical.
Ernst says the American people deserve answers.
Ernst says Republicans are skeptical, in part, because the Department of Justice and FBI have been sitting on the sidelines when they should have investigated threats to Supreme Court Justices.
Governor Kim Reynolds tweeted that the Biden Administration is taking our nation down a dangerous path. Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Ottumwa says it’s time for Washington to focus on the crimes happening at the border and in U.S. cities and not waste taxpayer dollars investigating political rivals. Ernst says it appears the search may be related boxes of presidential records and classified material Trump took to Florida that should have been turned over to the National Archives.
Senator Chuck Grassley says Americans have a right to be skeptical about the search of a former president’s home. Grassley says without transparency, the FBI and Department of Justice risk damaging their credibility. Republican Congressman Randy Feenstra of Hull says the FBI must immediately provide a full accounting of facts. Republican Congresswoman Ashley Hinson of Marion says if voters elect a GOP majority in the House this November, Republicans will provide rigorous oversight of the Biden Administration and ensure they are serving the American people, not targeting them. Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi say no one is above the law, even presidents, and the investigation should be allowed to run its course.
