Donald Trump spent days raging at the FBI over the search of his Mar-a-Lago resort, which he described as a “break-in” and an “abuse” while charging that the documents recovered there might have been a “plant”. He was joined by many Republicans who widely denounced the search as a “witch hunt”.

The apparent position of Republicans loyal to Trump is that any law enforcement activity targeting him is by definition illegitimate, no matter how grave the suspected activity. So a GOP-controlled House next year would probably undermine investigations into Trump any way it can.
