As the Josh Duggar child pornography case begins to play out and more information becomes available, critics and followers remember the statement released by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar in November 2019.

Back then, reports of a raid by Homeland Security were circulating, but details weren’t clear. In fact, shortly after it was made public, everything seemingly disappeared from the spotlight.

Initially, there was a lot of speculation as to what the raid couple possibly be about. It involved the car lot Jim Bob Duggar had Josh Duggar running, and following the news of the raid, the lot was shuttered and closed for good. Several of the Duggar boys worked there, including Joseph and Josiah Duggar.

At the time, Josh was dealing with a real estate fraud lawsuit and many believed that the raid might be in connection to that. It turns out that was not the case.

What did Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar say in 2019?

Last week, Josh Duggar was arrested and held at the Washington County Detention Center. He pled not guilty to the two counts he was indicted on, and just yesterday, he was granted bail.

The indictment came from an investigation that happened in 2019, which is what Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar denied even happened at the time.
