Trump says Florida home was “ransacked” by FBI

Former US President Donald Trump said Monday that his residence in Mar-A-Lago, Florida was “raided” by FBI agents in what he called “prosecutorial misconduct.”

“These are dark times for our nation as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla. is currently under siege, raid and occupation by a large group of FBI agents,” he said in a statement released on his social network truth was published.

“It’s prosecutorial misconduct, the arming of the judicial system, and an onslaught by radical left Democrats who desperately don’t want me running for president in 2024,” Trump said.

“They even broke into my safe!”

The FBI declined to comment on whether the search was happening or what it might be for, and Trump gave no indication as to why federal agents were at his home.

However, several US media outlets, citing sources close to the probe, said agents were conducting a court-authorized search related to the possible misuse of classified documents sent to Mar-a-Lago.

The National Archives said in February it had recovered 15 boxes of documents from Trump’s Florida home that the Washington Post reported contained top-secret texts he took when he left Washington after his re-election defeat.

The documents and memorabilia – which included former US President Barack Obama’s correspondence – should have been handed over by law at the end of Trump’s presidency, but ended up at his resort town of Mar-a-Lago instead.

The recovery of the boxes raised questions about Trump’s compliance with presidential records laws enacted after the Watergate scandal of the 1970s, which require residents of the Oval Office to keep records of administrative activities.

At the time, the archives requested that the Justice Department launch an investigation into Trump’s practices.

– “Accountable” –

According to a forthcoming book by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, White House staffers also regularly spotted bundles of paper clogging toilets, leading them to believe Trump was trying to get rid of certain documents.

Since taking his final Air Force One flight from Washington to Florida on January 20 last year, Trump has remained the country’s most polarizing figure and has continued his unprecedented campaign to spread untruths that he actually won the 2020 election .

For weeks, Washington has been riveted to congressional hearings on the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters and his attempts to overthrow the election.

The US Department of Justice is also investigating the Jan. 6 attack.

While Attorney General Merrick Garland declined to comment on growing speculation that Trump could face criminal charges, he insisted that “no one is above the law” and that he intends to “hold accountable any person who.” is criminally responsible for attempting to overthrow a legitimate election.”

Trump is also under investigation for his efforts to change the 2020 Georgia state election results, while his business practices in New York are being investigated in separate cases, one civil and one criminal.

The real estate mogul has yet to formally declare his candidacy for the 2024 presidential election, although he has made strong hints in recent months.

With President Joe Biden’s approval rating currently below 40 percent and Democrats forecasting that they will lose control of Congress in the November midterm elections, Trump seems optimistic about riding the Republican wave to the White House in 2024 could.
