Palatine, IL – Following last night’s breaking news of an FBI raid on Mar-A-Lago, Illinois’s 8th District Republican candidate Chris Dargis released the following statement:

“What unfolded yesterday is truly unprecedented. With just a few short weeks to go until midterm elections, the lack of transparency surrounding the reasons for this raid is heightening political mistrust and divisiveness in our country. The DOJ and FBI owe the American people a full accounting of their reasoning and evidence for this raid to ensure it was grounded in the law and not politics.”
