Republican nominee for the 5th Congressional District and Maury County Mayor Andy Ogles critcized the “Department of Justice weaponization of the FBI to advance a partisan political agenda solely aimed to ‘get Trump'” in a campaign press statement issued on Tuesday that decried the FBI raid on the former president’s Florida home.
Ogles blasted the move by the Biden Department of Justice’s FBI and compared the organization to a “third-world cesspool.”
“The Biden Department of Justice increasingly looks like a banana republic you would find in a third-world cesspool where political payback and partisan persecution have replaced a fair and just system operating under the rule of law. Targeting political enemies to advance the interests of a failing presidency is not the way we expect our leaders to behave. Frankly, it’s a disgusting overreach that deserves the outrage of all decent and law-abiding Americans regardless of political affiliation,” Ogles said in the statement.
Ogles added that he believes that Biden, the DOJ, and the FBI have destroyed their credibility.
“President Biden and his cronies at the Justice Department and FBI are destroying the last shreds of credibility of once respected and admired institutions. It is shameful, and I look forward to being part of a Republican majority in the House when we will exercise the oversight needed to hold those responsible for the politicization and weaponization of these agencies accountable and to restore them to the fair, effective and critical purposes for which they are intended to serve,” he said.
The FBI raided former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Monday, an act that has never before taken place on a former president’s home in American history.
