“My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, search and occupation by a large group of FBI agents,” he wrote Monday night on Truth Social, a network he co-founded. “This unannounced raid on my home was neither necessary nor appropriate,” Trump said. His safe was also opened, the ORF also reports.
Donald Trump criticized the house search as “political persecution”. Media reported that the FBI had completed the search Monday evening. A CNN reporter said Trump was not at home during the action.
The ex-president was recently heavily incriminated by witnesses at the public hearings of the investigative committee on the Capitol attack. Accordingly, Trump knew that the demonstrators were armed on January 6, 2021 and deliberately sent them to the Capitol.
Recently, there had been growing evidence that the Justice Department was investigating Trump’s behavior more closely. The question is whether Attorney General Merrick Garland could take criminal action against Trump. Trump has also been accused of withholding files and documents from his time in the White House and even flushing down the toilet. Trump rejected that. Actually, in the US, all correspondence from the President must be archived and kept for posterity.
