California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said on Face THE COUNTRY Sunday he doesnt know very well what changed to warrant the FBIs raid on former President Donald Trumps Mar-a-Lago estate.
Schiffs statement came after host Margaret Brennan asked him why the Department of Justice waited such a long time retrieve potentially classified documents from Trump, referencing the FBI raid on the former presidents property on Monday, as seen in a clip on Twitter. If there is that sensitive degree of information being held, why did justice department officials wait 18 months following the end of the Trump presidency? What changed that made this immediate? Brennan asked.

The former president has pushed for the immediate release of the documents linked to the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago.
Not merely am i going to not oppose the release of documents linked to the unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary raid and break-in of my home in Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago, I’m going a step further by ENCOURAGING the immediate release of these documents, despite the fact that they are used by radical left Democrats and possible future political opponents, who’ve a solid and powerful vested fascination with attacking me, much because they have done going back 6 years, the former president declared.
