Lawyer Alina Habba told Newsmax that the first thing Republicans should do if they take back Congress in November is "clean up" the FBI and Justice Department.
The personal attorney to former President Donald Trump joined "Eric Bolling The Balance" on Monday to overview the best possible governing agenda for the GOP, which has seen increased calls to break up the intelligence community after the Mar-a-Lago raid.
"We have to start fighting back," Habba proclaimed. "I honestly wish I could say that I think that clean-up can start before the midterms, but I don’t believe it can. I think we have to get the House, and after that, we have to move forward in the midterm elections."
"And then once we do that, the first thing we need to do is go in and clean up the FBI, the DOJ, and any government officials who are using their political stance against people who happen to be on the other side," she continued. "That goes both ways."
Habba also explained her concerns about future job prospects in the current political climate considering she is Trump’s personal attorney, asking if that means "my children and my home are going to get raided?"
Her interview comes after Catholic pro-life activist Mark Houck had his house raided by the FBI in suburban Philadelphia over allegations that he twice assaulted a Planned Parenthood client escort last year, Catholic News Agency reported.
Houck claims that he pushed the clinic escort away from his young son after the man "verbally harassed" the 12-year-old boy.
"A SWAT team of about 25 came to my house with about 15 vehicles and started pounding on our door," Houck’s wife, Ryan-Marie Houck, told the outlet. "They said they were going to break in if he didn’t open it. And then they had about five guns pointed at my husband, myself, and basically at my kids."
