PALM BEACH, FLORIDA (August 8, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--Just minutes ago the FBI raided former President Donald Trump's home in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump released the statement below regarding the FBI's raid which happened in the early morning hours today.
At the time of the raid, Trump was in New York City. Thirty FBI agents converged on Trump's home in the early morning hours. Lawyers for the former president were not permitted to follow the FBI agents as they searched the property which is unprecedented. FBI agents also broke into the president's safe, which was empty, according to reports. Trump took 15 boxes of classified documents when he left the White House in January 2021. The National Archives has been requesting the return of those documents since that time. The matter has been in court as the lawyers from both sides argued the case. What triggered the FBI's action today is not known.
These are dark times for our nation as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida is currently under siege, raid and occupation by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has ever happened to a US President. Having worked and cooperated with the appropriate government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was neither necessary nor appropriate. It’s prosecutorial misconduct, weaponization of the justice system, and an onslaught by radical left-wing Democrats who desperately don’t want me running for president in 2024, particularly based on the latest polls, and who will also do whatever it takes to help Republicans and conservatives to stop at the upcoming midterm elections. Such an attack could only take place in broken Third World countries. Unfortunately, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt at an unprecedented level. They even broke into my safe! How is it different from Watergate, where agents broke into the Democratic National Committee? Here, conversely, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.
The political persecution of President Donald J. Trump has been going on for years, with Russia, Russia, Russia Fraud, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2 and so much more now fully exposed, it just never ends. It’s political targeting at its best!
Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 emails AFTER being subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing happened to hold them accountable. She even took antique furniture and other items from the White House.
I’ve stood up to America’s bureaucratic corruption, I’ve restored power to the people, and I’ve truly fought for our country in a way we’ve never seen before. The establishment hated it. Now that they’re seeing my supported candidates gaining big victories and seeing my dominance in all the polls, they’re trying to stop me and the Republican Party again. Lawlessness, political persecution and witch hunts must be exposed and stopped.
I will keep fighting for the Great American People!
