Over the November 16 weekend, rumors began to circulate that Josh Duggar was being investigated by authorities. By the night of Sunday, November 17, they graduated to claims his home was raided by the FBI. On Monday, November 18, however, the federal agency denied any involvement in an investigation surrounding the reality star. According to Radar Online, an agent speaking on behalf of the organization confirmed they were not looking into the former 19 Kids and Counting star’s Arkansas home.
“We were not involved in any kind of law enforcement action [at the Duggar’s home],” the agent told Radar. “I can confirm we were not there.” According to them, the agency did hear the rumors. Despite the gossip, they shared that not only did they not investigate anything at Josh, 31, and wife Anna Duggar‘s home, they also didn’t search any home or property belonging to the famous family.
That hasn’t stopped fans and haters alike from speculating. On the Duggar family’s Facebook page, some commenters asked about the rumors. “Were the littles sent to [cousin Amy Duggar‘s] while the FBI were conducting the raid? Good strategy,” one wrote on a photo of some of the younger siblings visiting their new cousin, baby Daxton Ryan. “Did Josh get arrested? There’s rumors about an FBI raid,” another wanted to know as parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar wished Justin Duggar a happy birthday.
Rumors aside, the Counting On stars’ social media activity seemed to suggest they had a quiet Sunday night. Anna, 31, shared a banana muffin recipe on her Instagram Story on November 17, seemingly revealing the family spent the evening baking. Jim Bob, 54, and Michelle, 53, shared their house was doing much the same. “Jennifer made pumpkin pies!” they captioned a photo of the delicious looking dessert. “Definitely a favorite around here!”
On November 18, they continued to post as normal. “Getting back into the swing of things today,” Michelle shared on Instagram as she posted a video with her grandson Gideon, Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth‘s little boy. “While my children are busy with each of their school assignments, Gideon and I are going for a ride! Being a mom and grandma is one of my greatest joys. 💞 Next up is everyone’s favorite part of the school day: Lunch! 😄 Happy Monday!”
