To protect the security of the FBI officers involved, former president Donald Trump says he hasn’t published video from the raid on his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
On Tuesday, Newsmax’s “Wake Up America” on Tuesday, ” Trump said that they would prefer not to have me share the footage because of the safety of the FBI officers that surrounded the building.
The son of the 45th president, Eric Trump, stated last month that his father intended to make the damaging video public “at the right moment.”
Interestingly, the anti-Trump FBI officers who orchestrated the debunked Russiagate fake also oversaw the raid on Trump’s Palm Beach estate on August 8.
Numerous observers have criticized the unusual raid as a partisan witch hunt intended to scare the former president’s supporters and dissuade him from running again in 2024.
According to Trump, the Biden administration has “weaponized” the Department of Justice to harass and persecute him by breaking into his house, he told Newsmax.
He claimed that several FBI agents searched through his wife, former first lady Melania Trump, and his 16-year-old son, Barron’s personal items during the aggressive, invasive raid.
As soon as he entered, Trump said, “these people were in here, in your bedroom, and they were in Barron’s room and Melania’s room.”
The former president claimed that when the agents barged in and searched through his wife’s closets, drawers, and other personal belongings, she felt “very violated.”
“They search her clothing and who knows what else, ” Trump alleged.
Trump said the house was not left in the same condition they found it. He said it’s a disgrace that something like this could happen.
Ex-President Donald Trump says the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago home was an unethical, politically driven assault intended to humiliate and intimidate him. Former President George H.W. Bush’s lawyers say the search warrant was unlawful because a former president’s access to his papers under the Presidential Records Act makes it ineffective. Trump should be exonerated if the only charge against him is that he had presidential records that he brought home from the White House.
