Nicole Malliotakis, Brooklyn’s only Republican member of Congress, said Monday’s raid of former president Donald Trump’s Florida home by the Federal Bureau of Investigation was “politicized and weaponized.”

“Justice is politicized and weaponized in countries like the oppressive one my mother fled, we cannot and will not accept it in the United States of America,” Malliotakis tweeted on Aug. 9, referencing her mother’s Cuban heritage. “An FBI raid on a former president’s home is unprecedented in our nation’s history. The Department of Justice must be transparent and explain to the American people why they targeted President Trump in such a manner.”
