"We believe in the rule of law. That's what our country is about," Pelosi said in an interview with NBC's "Today" show. "And no person is above the law. Not even the president of the United States. Not even a former president of the United States."
According to multiple reports, the raid was related to an investigation into his potential mishandling of classified documents. In May, whether Trump had mishandled top-secret documents, including taking 15 boxes of material to the Florida resort.
"These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida is currently under siege, raided and occupied by a large group of FBI agents," , his social media website. "It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by the Radical Left Democrats who desperately don't want me to run for President in 2024."
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy vowed to launch an investigation into the Justice Department's decision to raid Trump's home — if Republicans take back control of the chamber in the upcoming midterm elections.
"When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department," McCarthy said in a statement, adding: "Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar."
Asked about McCarthy's promised probe, Pelosi said, "whatever the leader is saying is probably idle," because she believes Democrats will retain control of the House this fall.
Pelosi, who recently returned to Washington, D.C., after her controversial trip to Taiwan, said she did not know much about the FBI raid, and learned about it from a news alert on her cellphone.
"It will be interesting to find out exactly what the warrant was," she said, "but again we can only speculate."
