Mike Pence Calls for End to GOP Attacks on FBI After Search of Trump’s Home

HeadlineAug 18, 2022

Contributions to Donald Trump’s political action committee have surged since federal agents seized classified documents from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. The Washington Post reports Trump’s PAC has sent out over 100 emails railing against the FBI since the August 8 raid, netting over $1 million a day at least twice. On Wednesday, former Vice President Mike Pence called on Republicans to end their attacks on the FBI.

Mike Pence: “Our party stands with the men and women who serve on the thin blue line at the federal and state and local level, and these attacks on the FBI must stop. Calls to defund the FBI are just as wrong as calls to defund the police.”

Mike Pence also said he would consider speaking with the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack if he’s asked to testify. Pence was speaking at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, where speakers often include future presidential candidates.
