New information are emerging regarding the unusual raid of the Florida home of former President Trump.
Monday, the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. The raid was presumably connected to an inquiry into whether Trump stole and hid secret documents from the White House at his mansion.
Trump claimed that federal agents had broken into a safe in his house to seek for papers sought by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
The agents took a total of 15 boxes containing secret material, but did not specify what was inside.
Eric Trump revealed, according to a fresh version of the Monday operation at Mar-a-Lago, that FBI agents refused to hand over the search warrant for the property raid and entered unauthorized areas of the property.
According to Eric, the FBI refused to give Christina Bobb, Trump’s attorney, a copy of the search order but “showed it to her from about 10 feet away.” Moreover, he stated that he would be “thrilled” to discover whether the search was legitimate.
The police provided Bobb with a copy of the warrant, she told The New York Times a day earlier.
Bobb stated that the warrant’s supporting materials are currently sealed, but Trump’s team has yet to determine whether to take the case to court so they may view the raid’s justification.
In a Tuesday interview with Real America’s Voice, Bobb stated, “It was very, I would say, thin, and as you can tell, it went from public records. The affidavit, the supporting documentation of what the probable cause was to obtain the warrant, has been sealed, so we’re not allowed to see that. We have to go to court to request the judge to release that, which may or may not happen.”
In an interview with Daily Mail, the son of the former president stated that the thirty agents who arrived at the residence demanded that the cameras be disabled, but the staff refused.
Eric claims he has evidence that the FBI raided portions of the property where they’shouldn’t have been.’ This is due to the fact that the surveillance cameras were not disabled.
On addition, the attorney was forced to wait in the driveway while the search was conducted inside. He stated that they used safe crackers to break into the safe.
‘There are thirty agents there,’ he recalled on Monday during a phone conversation with the Mail. ‘They told our lawyer… you have to leave the property right now. Turn off all security cameras.’
Former President Trump responded to the raid on his social networking site Truth Social.
“In early June, the DOJ and FBI asked my legal representatives to put an extra lock on the door leading to the place where boxes were stored in Mar-a-Lago – We agreed,” he stated.
