Scott Perry Insists He Is “Not a Target’ of an FBI Investigation

In the wake of the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., has stressed that he is in no way under an investigation by the bureau, despite the recent seizure of his cellphone.

“While that story blew up, I heard from my attorneys, who talked directly to the Department of Justice, who said that I, their client, am not a target of this investigation,” Perry told Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Perry said that before it was confiscated, he was given a warrant as agents asked for his personal cellphone.

The chair of the House Freedom Caucus told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that the FBI showed up while he was traveling with his family and confiscated the device.

“If they would have just contacted my attorney, certainly, we would have provided the information necessary, as required by law,” Perry said.

“And that would have been the end of it,” he continued. “But they want this spectacle. They want this show. They want the intimidation.”

Perry’s point of clarity comes on the heels of the unprecedented raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.

“I think that they’re scared to death that President Donald Trump is going to come back in 2024 and win reelection,” Perry said. “And they’re going to do every single thing that they can to make sure that doesn’t happen, including make up some kind of charges from the National Archives.”

Both the FBI and the DOJ have remained tight-lipped about the collection of Perry’s phone. As to the raid on Mar-a-Lago in an attempt to counter Trump’s accusations of abuse of power and possible wrongdoing, Joe Biden’s AG Merrick Garland said late Thursday that he had asked a judge to unseal both the search warrant justifying Monday’s search as well as the receipt of what was taken.

The Keystone State congressman has not cooperated with the Jan. 6 committee, which has claimed that he was one of several GOP House members who angled for a pardon from Trump. 

Perry has denied the committee’s allegation.

    john, I think you are hyperventilating on fear. What Americans can you name that have been harassed via fake audits based on a mythical hit list you believe Democrats to hold? And don’t say Trump because 1) his actions warranted the various investigations, even the failed Russia-gate. 2) he’s an ex-president with unending cash resources that can sue for harassment any time he wants.

    Much ado about nothing.

    Meanwhile, we have yet another MFT, martyr for Trump. This 1/6 nut job committed suicide by cop by brilliantly attacked an FBI office full of armed FBI agents…..with….a nail gun. I heard it was fully automatic though. He never passed the entrance full of armed agents, fled, and was gunned down in a cornfield by police. He was an avid Trumplicant upset about Don’s Mara Loser search reacting to Don’s description of a being under siege and occupied illegally by the FBI. “Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before.” “This is war” screamed FOX Trumplicants, one of the tamest responses. Well, this guy listened to Trump, listened to FOX and he martyred himself to your cause. Congrats.

    The guy even posted FBI murder threats on Trump’s social media page: crickets — not even moderated. He was at BLM plaza in DC on 1.5.2021 and says he was part of the 1.6 attack on the Capitol to overturn the presidential election based on The Big Lie, told by Trump, but had not been charged yet.

    But a nail gun — how can this be the only guy who can’t find a gun? When we say statistically the Trumplicants have achieved lower levels of education, boy is this yet another proof is in the pudding moment.

    Personally, I am more concerned with Trumplicants targeting the FBI and other government officials than I am the converse. Same might be said about liberals and the SCOTUS.
