TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody called on the FBI to unseal the search warrant and affidavit related to the search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home Monday.
“I would urge this to be unsealed. The affidavit that supports it be unsealed, that the FBI issue a statement immediately about what supported this, what types of charges or crimes they expected the evidence to show that they found,” Moody explained in a Fox News interview.
“This is really astonishing, Laura, and I think for the integrity of this institution, there needs to be immediate transparency.”
As a former federal prosecutor, Moody said when she has done anything of significance where people may doubt because of a political party, there needed to be transparency.
“And I tell you what, the charges, if there are any of the allegations, this better be a rock solid case to wreck whatever respect there is right now for the FBI,” Moody said.
The Attorney General said if there was any suspect of classified information, one would expect there to be subpoenas.
“Requesting documents has been done in these similar cases,” she explained. “Not 30 FBI agents rushing in on a search warrant. It is certainly unusual.”
Moody pointed out that people were not rushing into Hillary Clinton’s home when there were allegations that she had classified information in her emails.
“You expect that the FBI will treat everyone the same, every case the same so that the American public can have faith in this institution,” she said.
Gov. Ron DeSantis called the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago house a “weaponization of federal agencies.”
“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,” DeSantis said.
Fox News reports that the raid is related to materials Trump allegedly brought to his private residence after his presidency concluded.
Trump confirmed in a statement that his house was “under siege” by a large group of FBI agents.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” Trump said.
