“If you’re going to take unprecedented action and raid a former president’s house, you better have a strategy for unprecedented transparency,” says New Hampshire governor.

Republican Governor Chris Sununu (N.H.) came to former President Donald Trump’s defense on Sunday, claiming it was no coincidence the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago just weeks before the midterm elections.

Sununu, who’s previously been an outspoken critic of Trump, joined CNN to lay out how the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid appears to be blatantly politically motivated.

“If you’re going to take unprecedented action and raid a former president’s house, you better have a strategy for unprecedented transparency,” Sununu told host Dana Bash. “I think we’re all concerned about what might be in those documents. Some were classified, some weren’t, what the serious nature was, but show us! You’ve gotta to be able to show your cards when you’re taking actions like this.”

He continued: “This has been a year and a half in the making. Former President Trump has been out of office for going on two years now. You think this is a coincidence just happening a few months before the midterm elections and all that sort of thing? So, you know, this is unprecedented. They had to have an unprecedented strategy, which they clearly didn’t have. They’re on their heels. They don’t know what to do. We want to see the information so we can have this discussion, we can talk about the subject matter with some sense.”

Bash pushed back, insisting the FBI’s seizure of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago was related to U.S. intelligence and national security risks, but Sununu countered that nobody really knows what the documents are about.

“No one seems to,” Sununu noted. “What’s the subject matter? What’s the dates? What’s the times? What are we talking about here?…I’m not saying put all the documents on the Internet, but give us some sense of the subject matter. Give us some sense of the timing. Give us some sense of what really drove us in there.”

Sununu went on to criticize the Department of Justice for releasing a heavily redacted version of the affidavit justifying the FBI’s raid, calling it a pointless exercise because it’s “almost all redacted.”

“I think I speak for everyone when we’re all pretty disappointed to see it was almost all redacted,” the governor said. “I get you got to redact certain things here and there, but you had pages upon pages upon pages redacted to the point where you say, well, what’s the point?”

A federal judge granted Trump’s motion on Saturday to appoint a special master to review the documents seized by the FBI to determine which ones are protected by attorney-client privilege and executive privilege, which would prevent the DOJ from using them in its witch hunt investigation.
