Former Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called for the Department of Justice (DOJ) to quickly justify the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence to avoid the perception that it was politically motivated and tainting investigations into Jan. 6.

Trump’s son Eric claimed the Monday raid was done over documents the former president took to Mar-a-Lago from the White House, Reuters reported.

“DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of January 6 investigations,” Cuomo tweeted Tuesday.

Cuomo resigned last year after investigators found sexually harassed more than ten different women and he was revealed to have hidden hundreds of nursing home patients’ deaths due to COVID-19, according to The Associated Press. Criminal charges against him were dropped, The New York Times reported.
