Sen. Chuck Grassley is calling for more information about the FBI's raid on a former agency contractor who had given a watchdog documents claiming that federal officials failed to investigate possible criminal activity related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and the sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to a Russian company's subsidiary.
Grassley, R-Iowa, has sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and to the Department of Justice's internal watchdog, seeking more details on the raid of Dennis Nathan Cain in Maryland, giving them until Dec. 12 to respond, reports Fox News.
Cain's attorney, Michael Socarras, told The Daily Caller after 16 FBI agents raided the home on Nov. 19 that the agent who led the raid accused Cain of being in possession of stolen federal property.
Cain claims that he has been recognized as a protected whistleblower under federal law by DOJ watchdog Michael Horowitz. Socarras also said Horowitz sent Cain's information to the House and Senate intelligence committees.
Grassley, in his letter to Wray, asked why Cain's house was raided, if the FBI knew of his disclosures to Horowitz, and if the disclosures were considered protected. Further, he asked if agents seized any classified information.
