Former US President Donald Trump claimed that the FBI “raided” his residence in Florida and that officers forced open a safe.
Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, according to a statement from Mr. Trump, was “occupied by a big group of FBI investigators.” According to reports, the search was related to a probe into how Mr. Trump handled government documents.
According to US media sources, the search relates to documents that the president may have taken with him when he left the White House for Mar-a-Lago. According to Christina Bobb, Mr. Trump’s attorney, certain documents were confiscated during the search, she told NBC News.
As Mr. Trump gets ready for a potential third presidential bid in 2024, federal enforcement investigation of him has dramatically increased. Our country is going through a dark time, Mr. Trump said in his statement.
He claimed the surprise raid on his residence was neither necessary nor appropriate because he had cooperated with all pertinent federal entities. It amounted to “prosecutorial malfeasance,” according to Mr. Trump, and “the weaponization of the Justice System” to keep him from running for president again.
He claimed that only impoverished, Third-World nations could support such an onslaught. “Unfortunately, America has now joined that group of nations, where corruption is at an unprecedented level. Even my safe was broken into by them.
Mr. Trump was reportedly present at the time of the alleged raid on Monday at Trump Tower in New York City, according to CBS News, the BBC’s US partner. The FBI’s execution of the search warrant on Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home was connected to an inquiry into the handling of National Archives records, according to Eric Trump, the second-oldest son of the president, who spoke to Fox News.
The US government’s National Archives, which is in charge of maintaining presidential records, requested an investigation into Mr. Trump’s handling of official documents in February. It was reported by the National Archives that it had taken 15 boxes from Mar-a-Lago, some of which held secret documents.
