Pence Steps Up For FBI After Mar-a-Lago Raid
Former Vice President Mike Pence criticized Republicans who have criticized the FBI in the days since it carried out a raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, allegedly in search of classified documents.
According to The Hill
“I also want to remind my fellow Republicans we can hold the attorney general accountable for the decision that he made without attacking the rank-and-file law enforcement personnel at the FBI,” Pence said to applause at an event at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.
“The Republican Party is the party of law and order. Our party stands with the men and women who serve on the thin blue line at the federal, state and local level. And these attacks on the FBI must stop,” Pence continued.
“Calls to defund the FBI are just as wrong as calls to defund the police. And the truth of the matter is, we need to get to the bottom of what happened. We need to let the facts play out,” Pence added. “But more than anything else, the American people need to be reassured in the integrity of our justice system, and the very appearance of a recurrence of politics playing a role in decisions at the Justice Department demand transparency as never before.”
Pence said he would call on Attorney General Merrick Garland to release a full accounting of the reasons behind the FBI search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property last week, during which federal agents recovered several boxes of classified and top secret materials the former president had taken from the White House.
“This unprecedented action does demand unprecedented transparency,” Pence said.

Pence is now being an idiot. The FBI is totally politicized, and Pence is acting as if the problem is insufficient respect for the FBI. What a loser.
I absolutely agree with you 100%
I understand preserving careers, but, it’s about time many in the FBI step up and acknowledge the wrong doing for political reasons. Yes, it may include the rank and file.
Any chance he had of ever winning the nomination is now gone.
Pence needs to go away and shut his mouth. His chances of being the next POTUS is about as good as lizzie’s.
Slim to NONE!!!
Now he’s acting like a but hurt traitor.
Is this guy totally tone deaf? No one that I know of has attacked the FBI rank and file, but…I am reminded of all the “good” Germans who stayed quiet as Hitler did what he did. Of course, their lives were at risk. Were I an FBI agent, I would really be embarrassed and angry at these FBI abuses. I kknow there are 14 FBI whistleblowers, but only 14? Good grief. Take a stand.
Mr. Pence could have called a moratorium to reexamine the election results. When he failed to do that, I lost all respect for him. Several analysts offered that he denied support to the 45th in order to further his own selfish political ambitions. If this is true, he was gravely in error. He but stabbed himself in the back.
Everyone knows the 2 words we have for the rino Pence.
Pence is just another “politician”….unlike Trump, who isn’t and THAT is the difference.
What’s Pence doing interfering? He needs to stay out of everything connected with the government or with Trump. He had his chance and blew it.
We know Pence is a RINO he has already proved that, turncoat.
He wants to back stab Trump again .He is a two faced piece of dog crap!!!!!
Pence exemplifies everything that is wrong with the republican party. We need to expel every RINO and elect America first candidates.All Pence cares about is Pence. I predict he will have some explaining to do concerning the so-called vaccine as well.He deserved being dropped by Trump and stands no chance of becoming president.
Pence is right. Attacking the rank and file is very stupid. The fish stinks from the head!!!!
does this nitwit ever research a subject before he makes a fool out of his self?? the rank and file are WHISTLEBLOWERS the top is rotten, do not think there is not a trickle down of corruption in these Organizations if the head is wrong there is no check and balance control.
Mike Pence’s mother must be saying a litany of Rosary’s for her son, what a disappointment he is, I wonder what they have on him,for him to be such a traitor?
This statement just confirms he is a RINO. He will not admit that Trump is our president and that the election was stolen with the help of the FBI. Even now with all the evidence against the election Democrats and RINO’S are still not admitting it.
His political carrier is in the toilet with Liz Chaney’s.
No Mike, these attacks by the FBI must stop.
