FBI officials have issued a search warrant for Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. According to media reports, authorities took several boxes from the luxury home.
“My beautiful home in Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago, is currently under siege, search and occupation by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump wrote on his co-founded Truth social network. “This unannounced search of my home was not necessary, Not even appropriate,” Trump continued. “They breached my security as well.” The former US president, who has repeatedly hinted at a renewed candidacy, described the process as “political harassment” but did not say why. Search.
According to US media, the investigation relates to documents from his time in the White House. In fact, all presidential letters in the United States should be archived and kept for posterity. However, Trump has been accused in recent months of tearing up files, throwing them in the trash or flushing them down the toilet during his tenure. Trump denied the allegations.
After his presidency, the Republican took several boxes of files to his luxury home in Mar-a-Lago. They are said to contain important communication documents. Letters from North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un and a letter from Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama. Some documents contained classified material. Trump eventually turned over 15 boxes to the National Records and Records Administration. FBI agents are now seeking additional documents from Trump’s tenure.
The search began early Monday morning, CNN reported. Federal police officers apparently focused on areas of the vacation home where Trump’s offices and private areas are located. The broadcaster reports that the FBI took several boxes. The raid ended that evening. A CNN reporter said Trump was not in Florida at the time of the operation and was at Trump Tower in New York.
Former President Trump was heavily incriminated by witnesses at the recent Capitol attack public hearings. Accordingly, Trump knew the demonstrators were armed on January 6, 2021, and sent them to the Capitol on purpose. Recently, there has been mounting evidence that the Justice Department is scrutinizing Trump’s conduct more closely. The question is whether Attorney General Merrick Garland can bring criminal charges against Trump.
At Mar-a-Lago, Trump welcomed state guests and Republican petitioners
The Mar-a-Lago estate, purchased by Trump in 1985, made headlines throughout the Republican presidency. For example, Trump welcomed Chinese President and Party Leader Xi Jinping and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
Trump is often in Florida for his personal pleasure. In total, the former US president spent about 400 days during his four-year tenure at one of his resorts around the world, preferably playing golf there. American taxpayers have a habit of spending a lot of money. The head of government of the United States always has an entourage of bodyguards and staff with him, and they must also be accommodated. The Secret Service reserved rooms at Mar-a-Lago as a precaution — just in case the president decided to make a hasty visit.
Even today, a year and a half into his term, Trump continues to welcome political guests to Mar-a-Lago. For example, Republican petitioners often seek the support of an influential former president and his constituents before a gubernatorial or Senate election.
Will Trump, 76, run for re-election? In political Washington, that is taken for granted. Trump continues to flirt with re-election to the White House in 2024. He has yet to officially announce his candidacy, but he repeatedly plays with the topic in his speeches. In a speech in Dallas, Texas, he said a few days ago: “Maybe we should do it again.”
