Indiana Republican Rep. Victoria Spartz blasted the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home this week, calling the move “KGB-style tactics.”
Spartz was not just saying that either, she grew up in the former Soviet Union before emigrating to the United States.
Her comments ring true because that’s just the way it came off to millions of Americans. It looked like something that happens in other countries, not America.

‘KGB-style tactics’: Congresswoman born in USSR blasts FBI raid
Following the FBI’s Monday morning raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate of Mar-a-Lago, Indiana GOP Rep. Victoria Spartz, who grew up in the Soviet Union, likened the Bureau’s operation to those of the KGB, the USSR’s notorious secret police and intelligence force.
“As a U.S. Congresswoman who grew up in the USSR, the FBI raid of President Trump’s home is alarming. It is reminiscent of KGB-style tactics,” Spartz told the Epoch Times. Spartz was born in Nosivka, in the Chernihiv region of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, now in independent Ukraine.
FBI agents from the Washington Field Office raided the former president’s home on Monday reportedly in search of classified documents he may have removed from the White House. Trump himself said the FBI’s actions signaled the country was declining into the political instability commonly associated with developing nations…
Spartz made an appeal for Americans to look beyond partisanship and recognize the threat that political persecution poses to the political system, saying “[r]egardless of people’s feelings about President Trump, this should not be acceptable in a democratic society.”
Spartz also mentioned this on Twitter:
I had never met President Trump while he was in office but noticed as a state senator his stamina to challenge the status quo which I liked
What I see now as a US Congresswoman who grew up in USSR is not just troublesome but alarming – KGB style politicshttps://t.co/lAFNetx49d
