The FBI raided Rep. Lauren Boebert‘s (R-Colorado) ex-campaign manager’s home on Tuesday as part of an investigation into a voting system security breach.

Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters was accused by state official in August of leaking voting system passwords.

District Attorney Dan Rubinstein told Colorado Politics: “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. 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 in an interview that the raid left her “terrified,” telling MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell: “The FBI raided my home at 6 a.m. this morning, accusing me of committing a crime. And they raided the homes of my friends, mostly older women. I was terrified. Essentially, they were soldiers in combat gear. They were not men in suits with badges. They looked very much like they were in a combat zone — soldiers with automatic weapons and combat gear.”

She went on to say: “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. I can’t unsee what I’ve seen.”

Mike Beasley, a lobbyist for the Colorado County Clerks Association, told the Washington Post: “I’ve always worried, working in this space, about people who want to harm our elections or sabotage them from the outside — the foreign actors trying to hack elections. I’ve never until now had to worry about what goes on on the inside. And now we’ve crossed that threshold.”
