President Donald Trump has endured the scourge of endless political persecution since announcing an initial presidential bid in 2015, but the FBI’s raid on his Florida home, Mar-a-Lago, took the cake in 2022.
According to a new report from Townhall, a hired crew had previously been tasked with rummaging through the contents of a West Palm Beach storage unit, reportedly turning over their findings to the FBI.
Townhall shared a report from the Washington Post that detailed the background of the storage unit:
“Emails released by the General Services Administration, which assists former presidents during their transition to private life, show that the government agency helped secure the storage unit at a private facility in West Palm Beach on July 21, 2021. The unit was needed to store items that had been held at an office in Northern Virginia used by Trump staffers in the months just after he left office.
The emails show that GSA and Trump staffers worked together to arrange to ship several pallets of boxes and other items weighing more than 3,000 pounds from Northern Virginia to the Florida storage unit in September 2021.”
What did the crew hand over to the FBI? According to the Washington Post, two items were marked “classified,” but no further information was shared. In fact, since the raid in August, comical Democrat allegations that Trump stored “nuclear secrets” in Florida have been brushed under the rug because no such evidence has yet been revealed.
The Washington Post’s report included this information, too:
“A person familiar with the matter said the storage unit had a mix of boxes, gifts, suits and clothes, among other things. ‘It was suits and swords and wrestling belts and all sorts of things,’ this person said. ‘To my knowledge, he has never even been to that storage unit. I don’t think anyone in Trump World could tell you what’s in that storage unit.'”
Unfortunately for Trump’s political enemies, this treasure trove of belongings was not what they were hoping for. And yet, allegations continually swirl in the media, despite the highly dubious circumstances surrounding the FBI’s raid on Trump’s home in August.
According to the 45th president, the post-raid “crime” scene in Mar-a-Lago wasn’t pretty. In September, Trump detailed what he found when he returned home on Truth Social:
“Arrived in Florida last night and had a long and detailed chance to check out the scene of yet another government “crime,” the FBI’s Raid and Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago. I guess they don’t think there is a Fourth Amendment anymore, and to them, there isn’t. In any event, after what they have done, the place will never be the same. It was “ransacked,” and in far different condition than the way I left it. Many Agents – And they didn’t even take off their shoes in my bedroom. Nice!!!”
Thus far, the Justice Department’s endless pursuit of the president has been a whopping “nothingburger” that has served only to further erode the public’s trust in American institutions tasked with protecting the citizens of the U.S.
Trump remarked on Truth Social on Friday: “Under the Presidential Records Act and the very well established Clinton Socks Case, the raid of Mar-a-Lago by the FBI, and the taking of documents and many other items, was ILLEGAL. Everything should be returned, at once!”
