Congressman Matt Gaetz Issues Statement on FBI Raiding President Trump’s Attorney’s Office
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) today issued the following statement in response to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) raiding the office of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney:
“The Department of Justice is currently covering their own trail because they know they engaged in FISA abuses that they don't want to be prosecuted for. I find it extremely hypocritical for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to oversee an investigation into obstruction of justice regarding the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, when Rosenstein wrote the memo recommending Comey's firing himself. And it’s that hypocrisy that warrants changes to be made at the very top of the Department of Justice. I understand the President’s frustration, and believe there is a sufficient basis for firing Rod Rosenstein, as well as the Attorney General for not doing his job,” Rep. Gaetz said.
Earlier today, Rep. Gaetz appeared on the Fox News Channel’s Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner to discuss the issue. A clip of the video can be found below.
