Lawmaker Says FBI Seized His Cell Phone

Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA), the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, says that the FBI has confiscated his cell phone.

“This morning, while traveling with my family, three FBI agents visited me and seized my cell phone,” Perry said in a statement.

Perry claimed the FBI agents “made no attempt to contact my lawyer, who would have made arrangements for them to have my phone if that was their wish.” 

“I’m outraged — though not surprised — that the FBI, under the direction of Merrick Garland’s DOJ, would seize the phone of a sitting Member of Congress,” he added.

The lawmaker noted that his “phone contains info about my legislative and political activities, and personal/private discussions with my wife, family, constituents, and friends. None of this is the government’s business.”

Perry’s statement comes shortly after the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach, Florida.

“(A)s with President Trump last night, DOJ chose this unnecessary and aggressive action instead of simply contacting my attorneys. These kinds of banana republic tactics should concern every Citizen,” Perry said.

    Have they seized phones of democrats???

    1. Doubtful. Remember. the FBI is the new arm of the democrat party.

  2. RSM4 says:

    The FBI have been willing thugs for Democrats for decades. One early example I remember involved the White House Travel Office When Bill Clinton was President. Hillary ordered the FBI to arrest the office staff. They were arrested and had hands cuffed behind their backs. Hillary told the FBI to perp walk them in front of White House Tour groups. Of course, CNN camera crews were there.

  3. Gwyllim says:

    Does anyone else think that it’s a coincidence that Representative Perry is the one who wanted to start impeachment proceedings on Attorney General Garland?

  4. Maggie says:

    Sounds like the Biden Mis-administration has declared war on conservatives. No surprise here. They did it before with the IRS during the Obama Mis-administration.

  5. Monk says:

    Wanna bet that former has-been President Obama is involved somewhere? Bidden doesn’t seem to do anything without the approval of Obama. This is how Obama is getting his third term. Now, behind door number 3, and the corrupt Hillary shows up. Surprised?
