“This was an abuse of power,” Cunningham said. “I don’t care if it’s the IRS or the FBI or who it is. We’re still in the United States.”
Cunningham outlined the abuses he believed happened: The agents closed the business, sent employees home, refused to allow Earl Weber Jr. to call him and then when they did talk, made them do it on the sidewalk outside the business.
The warrant doesn’t state and the agencies will not say exactly what federal agents were after when they shut down the business and sent the 40 employees home.
