Trump alleges His Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida was allegedly searched by the FBI
Donald Trump, the former president, said on Monday that the FBI had investigated his Palm Beach, Florida club and home, including opening his safe.
On Monday night, Eric Trump said he had been told that the raid was related to the Justice Department’s investigation into the suspected mishandling of federal secrets at Mar-a-Lago, which the National Archives recently recovered.
“The purpose of the raid was, from what they said, was because the National Archives wanted to corroborate whether or not Donald Trump had any documents in his possession,” Jared Kushner, told Fox News.
He said he called his father on Monday morning to tell him about the raid and he passed the information forward.
Even though it would have required a court warrant, the search shows that federal investigators are looking at the former president’s activities more closely than previously acknowledged.
By way of his PAC, Trump claimed that the FBI had Mar-a-Lago was “under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.”
This unexpected raid on my residence was unnecessary and inappropriate, according to a statement issued by the relevant government agencies.
The Justice Department’s investigations into Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election have been stepped up, but there have been no reports of an inquiry targeting Trump himself as of Monday.
On Monday, Trump chose not to travel to the Sunshine State. Despite the fact that Mar-a-Lago serves as his official residence, former President Barack Obama usually spends the summers up north, where he frequently plays golf at his Bedminster, New Jersey, club. On Monday evening, he was spotted outside Trump Tower in New York City.
