Brother of Parkland victim blasts ‘politically motivated’ FBI after Cohen raid: Why no action to save sister?

Monday’s raid on the offices of President Trump’s personal lawyer left many shocked about the political motivations of the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller.

One family in particular was more than sensitive to the fallout of the FBI’s activity.

Meadow Pollack was killed in February when former student Nikolas Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Her family, who are not in favor of gun control, have been advocating for better safeguards to protect students at schools across the nation.

Their refusal to follow the liberal narrative of weapons bans and stifling Second Amendment rights for law-abiding citizens meant the Pollacks have not been given much media attention. Meadow’s brother, Hunter, was disinvited from speaking at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C. last month, though he did share a personal message in a video.

Following the news of the FBI raid on Trump lawyer, Michael Cohen, Hunter Pollack leveled a scathing rebuke against the law enforcement agency.

“The politically motivated FBI could act on raiding a lawyers office for documents related to an adult film star,” he wrote in a tweet Monday, referring to Cohen who paid $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election.

“But they couldn’t act on stopping the shooter that murdered my sister and 16 others even though he was reported to them multiple times!” Pollack wrote.

Last month, members of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees listened to testimony from FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich confirming mistakes and lack of action by the FBI in following up on leads on Cruz.

“It’s ridiculous Google and Amazon and Facebook can run algorithms 24/7 against my blog, my website, my social media platforms to figure out what kind of sunscreen to sell me, but our law enforcement can’t use the very same ubiquitous technology to identify people who are most likely to do a great deal of harm,” Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said at the time.

Pollack demanded action in the wake of the “politically motivated” raid which even President Trump referred to as “a total witch hunt.” The raid was not directly related to the probe of alleged Russian collusion but was executed after obtaining a warrant based on a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“Fix it!” Pollack’s tweet concluded.

The reaction on Twitter was instant as Pollack’s tweet got over 20,000 likes and was shared over 11,000 times.
