The president of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, accused Trump on Friday of “instigating attacks against law enforcement” for his criticism of the FBI after the search of his house, as he did in the attack to the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
“Once again, he is instigating attacks on law enforcement,” Pelosi said at a news conference when asked if events such as the attempted attack on an FBI headquarters in Ohio could have something to do with Trump’s criticism.
On Thursday morning, a man tried to enter the local FBI headquarters in the city of Cincinnati (Ohio, USA), for reasons still unknown, and later died at the hands of the police.
Since it became known that last Monday the FBI searched Trump’s house in Mar-a-Lago in search of classified documents on nuclear weapons that the former president allegedly took from the White House, the former president has dedicated himself to criticizing the entity.
In a press appearance, the attorney general of the United States, Merrick Garland, explained yesterday that he himself authorized the search warrant for the former president’s mansion in Mar-a-Lago and that he has asked a Florida court to make public both that mandate as the inventory of what was seized by the FBI.
Trump himself has requested that the content of the documents seized from his house be published in an operation that he continues to describe as a “political persecution” against him, in which the FBI itself would be involved.
Pelosi called this Friday not to frivolize with the documents found in the house because if her content is “what it seems to be”, it is a “very serious” matter.
“This is about our national security and our concern is always to protect and defend it. This means that we do not treat the documents frivolously,” Pelosi said at a press conference in which she said she did not know their content.
“I don’t know more than what is in the public domain,” Pelosi said, but “if the nature of these documents is what it appears to be, this is very serious,” she added.
Even so, the content of the documents will probably not be known as they presumably contain matters that concern national security.
“Hopefully we will know more, but we don’t want to see much more either because that could endanger our safety,” said Pelosi, who recalled that “there are laws against the improper handling of this material.”
