Pence demands ‘full accounting’ from Garland on Mar-a-Lago search

Pence demands ‘full accounting’ from Garland on Mar-a-Lago search

Former Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday said the FBI’s raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence undermined public confidence in the justice system and called for a “full accounting” from Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“I share the deep concern of millions of Americans over the unprecedented search of the personal residence of President Trump,” Pence wrote on Twitter. “No former President of the United States has ever been subject to a raid of their personal residence in American history.”

“After years where FBI agents were found to be acting on political motivation during our administration, the appearance of continued partisanship by the Justice Department must be addressed,” he continued. “Yesterday’s action undermines public confidence in our system of justice and Attorney General Garland must give a full accounting to the American people as to why this action was taken and he must do so immediately.”

Trump announced on Monday a large group of FBI agents executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago.

Trump faces multiple investigations focused on the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, his business dealings and his handling of classified documents.

Eric Trump, the president’s son, said on Fox News on Monday evening that the search was focused on the latter.

The National Archives reportedly asked the Department of Justice (DOJ) to examine Trump’s handling of records at the end of his term, including whether the took classified documents to Florida.

The FBI and DOJ have both declined to comment on the raid.

Pence’s statement echoes other Republicans who have similarly called for Garland to answer questions about the raid. Some, like Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), went further and called for the attorney general’s resignation.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) threatened to investigate Garland if Republicans take control of the House next year, telling him to preserve documents and “clear your calendar.”

Pence is one of multiple potential 2024 Republican presidential candidates that have expressed concerns over the raid, with other rumored contenders like Hawley and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis also weighing in.

The former vice president has made frequent appearances in early primary states and continues to endorse candidates running in the midterm elections, sometimes in opposition to Trump’s own endorsements.

Pence has urged his party to focus on a forward-looking agenda, contrasting with Trump’s consistent mentions of the 2020 election and unfounded claims of voter fraud.

Pence expresses ‘deep concern’ over Mar-a-Lago search, asks for ‘full accounting’ from Garland

WASHINGTON – Many Republicans are rallying around former President Donald Trump after the FBI search on his Mar-a-Lago estate – some more aggressively than others.

While House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy and other Republicans vowed to investigate the Department of Justice over the search, Vice President Mike Pence issued a tweet expressing his “concern” over the incident.

“I share the deep concern of millions of Americans over the unprecedented search of the personal residence of President Trump,” Pence tweeted.

Pence, who like Trump is considering a 2024 presidential run, also tweeted that some FBI agents “were found to be acting on political motivation” during the Trump administration.

In what looked a carefully worded series of tweets, Pence tweeted that Attorney General Merrick Garland “must give a full accounting to the American people as to why this action was taken and he must do so immediately.”

The background:What’s happening at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home? Was the FBI there? Answers to your questions

Former Vice President Mike Pence speaks at the Young Americas Foundation’s National Conservative Student Conference on July 26.

What did McConnell, McCarthy say?

Other Republicans, including Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, had not commented at all as of Tuesday midday.

At the end of the day, McConnell issued a terse statement that did not mention Trump by name: “The country deserves a thorough and immediate explanation of what led to the events of Monday. Attorney General Garland and the Department of Justice should already have provided answers to the American people and must do so immediately.”

In pledging to investigate should Republicans win the House, McCarthy issued a starker message to Attorney General Garland: “Preserve your documents and clear your calendar.”

Declaring that “I’ve had enough,” McCarthy said the Justice Department has reached “an intolerable state of weaponized politicization.”

Democrats, for the most part, said the search was totally justified, given Trump’s troubling history of handling classified information, the subject of the Justice Department’s inquiry.

“No person is above the law,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said on NBC’s “Today” show.

Barter Your Way to Profits

Barter Your Way to Profits

Have you ever faced any of the following situations?

One: You need a lawyer but you don`t have the cash for the retainer.

Two: You have a warehouse full of inventory that just isn`t moving.

Three: Sales are down and you need more customers.

Each of the above problems might be alleviated by


1. What Is Bartering?

Bartering is simply exchanging goods or services

without money.

For example, you give your accountant and his family

a meal in your restaurant in exchange for the

preparation of your income tax return. This is a

barter transaction because no cash changes hands

between the two parties.

2. Bartering Improves Liquidity and Profits

A shortage of cash is not an unusual situation for

either businesses or individuals. Perhaps you would

like to advertise in a certain publication but just

don`t have the money. Have you considered exchanging

something of value that you have (a service or product)

for the advertising you need?

Such a barter deal is mutually advantageous. Neither

the party has to part with cash to obtain the desired goods

or services.

Not only does bartering conserve cash, but it can

generate sales and profits. Inventory turns

over more quickly. Service providers sell more of

their time than they would have if they insisted on cash.

3. Bartering Creates New Customers

Notice, also, that both parties just made a sale to

someone they wouldn`t normally have. You both just

received a new customer.

If happy, your new customer can refer you to many

more customers, including ones who pay cash. Perhaps

your original barter customer may also start paying

cash in future transactions with you.

4. Barter Exchanges

In addition to trading with individuals and

businesses, you might consider joining a barter


A barter exchange is a business that facilitates the

exchange of goods and services between its members.

There are membership fees for joining. Also, the

barter exchange charges a commission on transactions

made through it.

5. Tax Aspects of Bartering

Barter transactions made by your business must be

reported for income tax purposes. Also, sales taxes

may apply to such transactions.

For increased liquidity and new customers, consider

bartering your way to profits.
