The director of the FBI, Christopher Wray, denounced Thursday that agents of his office have been threatened after the raid on Donald Trump’s house in Mar-a-Lago. Wray described the situation as “deplorable and dangerous.”
“I’m always concerned about threats to law enforcement. Violence against law enforcement is not the answer, no matter who you’re upset with”, Wray said during a media appearance.

Criticism of the FBI is widespread
Despite the statements, Wray did not explain why members of the FBI raided the former Republican president’s residence for hours. After the operation, hundreds of people and politicians from both the Republican and Democrat parties have asked for an explanation from the federal agency for how it was carried out.
“DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives, or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of January 6 investigations”, Andrew Cuomo wrote on Twitter.

Cuomo was echoed by Senator Marco Rubio, who compared the FBI raid to something that would happen under the Ortega regime in Nicaragua.
“Biden is playing with fire by using a document dispute to get the @TheJusticeDept to persecute a likely future election opponent,” Rubio said.
