FBI Shows Up At House Of Dem Rep –“Conducting Court-Authorized Law Enforcement Activity”
FBI agents showed up at the house of Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) — they say they are “conducting official law enforcement activity.”
Federal agents were at the home of Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) on Wednesday evening conducting official law enforcement activity, according to local media.
The FBI did not state what they were doing at the residence other than “conducting court-authorized law enforcement activity.”
“The FBI cannot provide further comment on an ongoing investigation,” FBI spokesperson Rosanne Hughes said.
Cuellar’s office released a statement on Wednesday night, saying, “Congressman Cuellar will fully cooperate in any investigation. He is committed to ensuring that justice and the law are upheld.”
Agents are still in and around the home. Some more showed up a few moments ago.

Rep. Henry Cuellar has been a frequent critic of the Biden administration’s border policies.
A House Democrat is blasting President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for the havoc the illegal immigration crisis is causing in his Texas border district, slamming the administration for shying away from “uncomfortable” but effective policies.
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) made his remarks during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday, where he slammed the Biden administration for creating “incentives” for illegal migration to the US.
“Surely the incentives are there for the smugglers to keep trying to get people over here, they make $6,000 to $8,000 per person,” Cuellar said, explaining how the crisis was worsening with time.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s drugs or people. [Smugglers] make over the years billions of dollars, and we have to understand that if we don’t take this incentive away and address both the push factors and the pull factors, we’re going to keep talking about this year after year.”
