House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told President Joe Biden‘s attorney general Merrick Garland in a statement to preserve all documents and clear his calendar for when Republicans regain the majority in the House of Representatives because Garland will be investigated following the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago.
McCarthy posted the statement to Twitter Monday night following the raid which said, "I’ve seen enough. The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization. When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned."
He added, "Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar."
According to Fox News, the White House claimed it did not have any notice of the raid and referred all additional questions to the Department of Justice. According to the outlet, the standard protocol would have made Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray fully aware of the raid before it occurred.
In May, federal prosecutors began a grand jury investigation to discover if classified material that ended up at Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago was mishandled.
According to The New York Times, Trump delayed returning 15 boxes of material to the National Archives which included documents that were marked as "classified national security information."
Typically, these types of investigations are usually for federal authorities to determine if any classified material was compromised so that intelligence officials can take steps to protect sources and methods.
