Trump announced Monday that his Florida home was being raided by the FBI. The Department of Justice is investigating the possible mishandling of documents after 15 boxes of White House documents ended up at Mar-a-Lago, with The Washington Post reporting that some of the documents were classified.
Trump called the raid “prosecutorial misconduct” and said the attack was political and was launched to try to ruin his chances in 2024.
“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 said. “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.”
