PRESS RELEASE – NDGOP Statement on Mar-A-Lago Raid

BISMARCK – Perrie Schafer, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party (“NDGOP”), released the following statement in response to the FBI’s raid on the home of former President Donald J. Trump: 

“This is a dark day for America. The FBI’s raid on President Trump’s personal home shows a disturbing overreach of our justice system and seriously undermines the public’s trust in our institutions. This is particularly true given the fact that law enforcement has not been nearly as aggressive in investigating Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, who kept classified information on a personal server, and Hunter Biden, whose personal indiscretions and corrupt foreign dealings have left America vulnerable to our adversaries,” said Schafer. 

He continued: “Make no mistake about it: the Democrats won’t stop with President Trump; they’re coming for all of us using their unchecked power. Just in the past few days, Democrats have rammed through a massive new spending bill that will hire 87,000 new IRS agents, making it one of the largest, most powerful agencies in Washington that will harass small businesses and the Democrats’ ideological opponents with impunity.” 

Schafer concluded, “This raid underscores the importance of electing Republicans in November. Right now, there is no limit on what the Democrats can do. A Republican Congress can put an end to the madness and stop the witch hunt against decent, law-abiding Americans.”
