The 2011 raid of the Gibson Guitar plant is being seen in a new light thanks to recent scandals swirling around the Obama administration. The company’s CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz, is a conservative, and the raid involved armed federal agents entering the Memphis guitar plant in search of illegal wood.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, wants some answers.

“President Obama owes the American people a full explanation as to why these decisions were made, and anyone responsible for plotting these politically motivated attacks should be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” she added.
