Former President Donald Trump announced Monday night that his home at Mar-A-Lago had reportedly been raided “by a large group” of FBI agents.
“After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” he stated, according to CNBC.
It is currently unclear why the raid was conducted, however, Trump claimed, “Mar-A-Lago is currently under siege.” The former president also stated that the FBI team had “broken into” his safe.
Read President Trump’s full statement below:
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. 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. Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. 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 Democrat National Committee? 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. 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. 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. The establishment hated it. Now, as they watch my endorsed candidates win big victories, and see my dominance in all 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 Great American People!
We do know that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is undertaking a preliminary investigation regarding Trump’s ‘routine’ possession of official presidential documents, at his Florida property in West Palm Beach. It also appears this is yet again, another raid in a series of overreaching, partisan, and intergovernmental efforts being pushed forward by top tier Democratic Party leaders.
President Trump has remained consistently cooperative with all protocols involving appropriately storing — and owning — classified documents. The Oversight Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, however, continued to disclose their increased expansion of the investigation into the conduct of the Trump Administration.

When approached regarding a similar situation of returning classified documentation, Trump was completely willing and transparent, calling it, “an ordinary and routine process, according to Newsweek.
As of this writing, it seems both the broad investigation — and the raid performed on the former president’s home — has yet to turn up anything substantial to corroborate the reasoning for such a probe. It’s being reported the FBI currently “occupies” Trump’s estate, and it is unclear when that will change.
The exploitation of the DOJ and several other government agencies has long been a tool of the left, for it to target its counterparts and enemies on the right. When it comes to egregious scandals of their own, however, these same agencies entrusted with upholding justice and enforcement of America’s laws are nowhere to be found.
Hunter Biden’s infamous ‘laptop from hell,’ for instance — which contained several unethical and outright illegal acts being committed by President Biden’s son, sometimes even carried out on the taxpayers’ dime.
Coincidentally, the investigation into drug use and overseas business dealings have been shunned for the most part from any significant inquiry and buried by the media. Or take Hillary Clinton’s acid washing email scandal during her time in office. In contrast, she and Hunter were seemingly cleared of any wrongdoing, by the United States’ bloated and corrupt bureaucracy.
It remains to be seen whether or not the DOJ will continue to pursue other means of attempting to find breaches by Trump, but one thing is for certain. The country can expect intense escalation, as a result of this unreasonable precedent, which has the nation headed down a very narrow and risky path. One which can only be navigated by competent, honest leaders — and ones whom the U.S. badly needs to elect in Novembe, if it hopes to retain its freedom.
