The FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Fla. on Monday has drawn sharp rebuke from Republican members of Congress from all around the country.
However, one typically outspoken member of Alabama's congressional delegation said he is taking a wait-and-see approach.
During an interview with Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show," U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) said he did not have a strong reaction to the raid, unlike many of his Republican colleagues.
Brooks, who recently lost his bid to be the GOP's nominee for U.S. Senate in November's general election, said any possibilities could be in play. He explained he was waiting for more information to come out.
"I didn't have a strong reaction one way or the other because I don't have enough information to know who is right and who is wrong," Brooks said. "It could be the crimes were committed by Donald Trump or by the FBI or by the people who gave the FBI information, which could be bad, or by the federal judge who issued a warrant in violation of the Fourth Amendment right against improper search and seizure.
"So, we really need more time to find out what the true facts are to determine who is the guilty party in this affair. But certainly, it is troublesome what has happened. And the FBI better be right, and if they're not, heads ought to roll."
