Rep. Darrell Issa criticized the federal search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-al-Lago estate by the FBI and Justice Department in statements on social media.

In tweets on Monday and Wednesday, the Republican congressman who represents East County accused the federal government of seeking to “go after another Republican.”

FBI agents with a federal warrant searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach on Monday, cracking open a safe and reportedly carrying away boxes of White House documents.

Neither the Justice Department or Trump have publicly released the details of the search warrant.

During the events of Jan. 6, 2021, Issa was one of a number of Republican members of congress who objected to certification of the 2020 election, voting to reject the electoral votes from Arizona and Pennsylvania when President Biden narrowly beat Trump.
