Today, Madison Businessman and former Republican Senate Candidate, Eric Hovde, issued a very direct statement regarding the FBI raid of the Mara Lago home of former President Donald J. Trump. It’s nice to see Conservative leaders across the state making their voices heard loud and clear:
‘The Justice Department and FBI’s raid of former President Trump’s home is unprecedented in American history.
To see the FBI using assault weapons and ransacking a former President’s home should be completely unacceptable to every American regardless of one’s political leanings. The abuse of federal law enforcement to intimidate political opponents and try to prevent a former President from running for office again is a dangerous trend to our democracy.
These are the tactics used in banana republics and should not be allowed to take place in America. If the DOJ and FBI do not provide a concrete and legitimate reason for this raid and the need to have weapons present, then Attorney General Garland and FBI Director Wray should immediately resign or be impeached!’
