(PatrioticPost.com)- On Wednesday, FBI agents were stopped taking items away from Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar’s Texas campaign headquarters as well as his home in Laredo. The agents appeared to be taking evidence from the properties – but nobody really knows what is being investigated.
A report from The Texas Tribune said that Rosanne Hughes, a spokeswoman for the FBI, said that they were carrying out “court-authorized law enforcement activity.”
A statement from Rep. Cuellar’s office said that the congressman would fully cooperate with any investigations that the is “committed to ensuring that justice and the law are upheld.”
But they didn’t confirm what the investigation was, or if they had any idea of what the investigation might be.
The agents spent several hours in his Laredo property, leaving only in the evening after walking out of the property with various items.

If this is yet another case of Democrats being bought by foreign nations, then how can the party continue to claim that former President Donald Trump was influenced by Russia…even when the FBI proved otherwise?
We’ll report back when more information is available on the investigation and what the congressman is alleged to have done.
