House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy asked Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray to testify before the House Judiciary Committee about the raid on the Mar-a-Lago estate of the former President Donald Trump.
McCarthy also asked Garland to turn over documents related to the Mar-a-Lago raid to Republicans.

“This unprecedented nature of the FBI’s search of President Trump’s home and the broad public interest surrounding the raid necessitate more than just a private briefing with Congressional and Intelligence Committee leadership,” McCarthy continued. “The Biden administration cannot ignore its obligation to submit to public hearings on the House Judiciary Committee, which is charged with broad oversight of the operations and functions of the DOJ and FBI.”
