The FBI reportedly raided the homes of Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters and three of her associates on Tuesday.
An official who helped conduct the searches said that this was part of an investigation into accusations that the elected official was involved in voting machine security breaches.
“We executed four federally court-authorized operations today to gather evidence in connection with the investigation into the Mesa County Clerk and Recorder’s Office,” District Attorney Dan Rubinstein told Colorado Politics. “We did so with assistance from the DA’s office from the 21st Judicial District, the Attorney General’s Office, and the FBI.”
Peters said on Tuesday night that the searches left her “terrified.”
“The FBI raided my home at 6 a.m. this morning, accusing me of committing a crime,” Peters told MyPillow CEO, Mike Lindell. “And they raided the homes of my friends, mostly older women. I was terrified.”
Peters went on to say that FBI officials “used a battering ram,” destroying the front door of one of her friends’ homes. She also said that her home was searched for “about three hours” and that officials “took all of my electronics,” including her phone.
“Essentially, they were soldiers in combat gear. They were not men in suits with badges,” Peters said. “They looked very much like they were in a combat zone — soldiers with automatic weapons and combat gear.”
Colorado’s Independent Ethics Commission is currently investigating a complaint that alleges that Peters violated a state constitutional gift ban by accepting flights on a private plane and other travel expenses from Lindell.
Peters has long been outspoken about the fact that she is on a mission to uncover proof that the 2020 election was rigged.
“I refuse to give up,” Peters said after the FBI raid. “I am more scared than ever for my life, but courage is the key when you do something in spite of fear. I feel that if I was to give up now, I would be giving up on our country. You do the right thing, and you see your government come down on you like that. This is the worse nightmare you can imagine.”
Peters believes that the government is trying to intimidate her and others who want to expose the truth about the 2020 election.
“They want to shut me up, shut me out, prosecute me, do whatever they can to villainize and demonize me just to cover up their dirty deeds,” she said. “I can’t unsee what I’ve seen.”
