Cuellar: “No wrongdoing on my part” after FBI searchPosted/updated on: January 26, 2022 at 11:47 am
LAREDO (AP) – U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar says he took part in “no wrongdoing” after FBI agents last week searched near the Texas congressman’s home. The nine-term Democrat said in a video posted Tuesday that he was fully cooperating with law enforcement but provided no details. Cuellar hasn’t been charged with a crime and the FBI has said nothing about the scope of its investigation. Cuellar serves on the powerful House Appropriations Committee and was outspoken in blaming national Democrats’ move to the left during the 2020 campaign on issues like health care and the environment as contributing to some disappointing losses in the House.
