Former President Donald Trump has released a statement claiming his home was raided and searched by the FBI.
In a release sent out by Trump, he claims the FBI conducted a search of his Mar-a-Lago estate and asserted that agents had broken open a safe.
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump’s statement read.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before. After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate. It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections.”
“This is government-run terrorism led by political law enforcement,” said Gregg Phillips, producer of the documentary 2,000 mules. “They are trying to ignite a war so they can avoid getting their ass beat in November. It is an outrage. Pro-freedom Americans will never bend the knee.”
According to Perry Hooper, a friend of Trump and Trump Team Leader in 2020, there was no reason given for the raid's purpose or why so many agents were necessary.
“100 agents show up at your home? That’s just crazy,” Hooper said. “We haven’t heard if there was probable cause, but I don’t think it has to do with January sixth; I think it has more to do with taxes.
“The FBI has become Joe Biden’s Gestapo, basically. Look at all the stuff. They haven’t even done anything with Hunter Biden, but they’re going to raid the home of a former president; give me a break.”
Information is still unfolding on the reason for the search and what information was taken from the estate.
