The Federal Bureau of Investigation has carried out a raid on former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, according to a statement.
These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautful home, Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said in his statement.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” he went on. “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.”
“Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries,” Trump added. “Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe!”

“What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democratic National Committee?” he said. “Here, in reverse, 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 the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more, it just never ends,” the statement continued. “It is political targeting at the highest level!”
“Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress,” Trump said. “Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House.”
“I stood up to America’s bureaucratic corruption, I restored power to the people, and truly delivered for our Country, like we have never seen before,” he added. “The establishment hated it. Now, as they watch my endorsed candidates win big victories, and see my dominance at polls, they are trying to stop me, and the Republican Party, once more. The lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt must be exposed and stopped.”
“I will continue to fight for the American People!”
According to the New York Times, the search is linked to 15 boxes of classified documents Trump allegedly brought to Mar-a-Lago upon leaving White House. Trump was not on site when the search happened, according to reports.
