FBI raids Annapolis location

It was a small victory for President Trump when James Comey was fired from his position as the FBI’s Director. However, the GOP’s problems are from over.

On Thursday, WBAL-TV, a local Maryland news outlet, revealed that a raid was being carried out by FBI agents at a GOP fundraising/consulting firm in Annapolis. The specific firm has not been named.

WBAL-TV reporter Jayne Miller tweeted on Thursday morning that she had learned of the raid, which was confirmed by FBI representatives.

‘Developing: FBI confirms agents are executing a search warrant at the office of GOP Fundraiser/Consulting firm in Annapolis.’

Miller has continued to tweet about developments as they’ve arisen. About 30 minutes after her initial tweet, Miller revealed that the investigation was not being run locally, but out of Washington, D.C.

‘FBI investigation of GOP fundraising firm in Annapolis is run out of Washington, not a local case.’

She also shared some more information about the firm, which represents GOP candidates from around the country.

‘Annapolis firm targeted by FBI touted for pioneering the use of technology in political campaigns. Represents GOP candidates nationwide.’

As the story is still developing, few details are available at this time. However, the timing of the raid has caused many to question whether or not it has any connection to the Comey’s recent dismissal or, more widely, to the investigation into Trump’s Russia ties.

Between dealing with the results of Comey’s firing and covering the hearing for acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, no major news networks have picked up the story yet. However, many people have already taken to Twitter to try and spread the word.

Some have tweeted at prominent news personalities, including MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, GQ’s Keith Olbermann, and Media Matters for America’s Eric Boehlert.

@maddow Looking forward to any word coming out of FBI raid in Annapolis GOP fundraising office.

@KeithOlbermann FBI raid on GOP fundraising co. In Annapolis in progress. EDVA swarmed with FBI And Fed Marshals Claude Taylor reports

@EricBoehlert any info about the FBI GOP raid in Annapolis or the RICO stuff coming out of NY or is it wishful thinking

Other have tweeted more generally about the raid, expressing their desire for it to not get buried by other stories.

The news better cover this FBI raid of the GOP fundraiser in Annapolis….dont let it get lost.

ask what’s happening with the FBI raid on GOP fund raising consultancy in Annapolis. Happening right now. DC led raid.

Hopefully, either through Miller or another outlet, more details about the raid will be shared soon, and there will be further evidence that Republicans, not Hillary Clinton, are the ones who are truly “crooked.”
