WASHINGTON, DC – Following reports of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's raid at former President Donald Trump's residence at Mar-a-Lago, Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), Lead Republican of House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), called for an immediate briefing from FBI Director Christopher Wray on his justification for the raid.

The full text of the letter can be found here or below:

Dear Director Wray, 

According to recent news reports, Members of Congress have learned that as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation you ordered a raid on former President Donald J. Trump's personal residence.

In the history of our country, this action is unprecedented. As the Ranking Member on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, I am unaware of any actual or alleged national security threat posed by any information, data, or documents in the possession of former President Trump.

Congress deserves immediate answers from you as to the actions you ordered. I hereby request an immediate briefing by you to Members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence concerning any national security threats used to justify your decision.
