President Donald Trump slammed the photographs from the FBI released this week that showed “top secret” documents discovered during their raid on Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.
“There seems to be confusion as to the ‘picture’ where documents were sloppily thrown on the floor and then released photographically for the world to see, as if that’s what the FBI found when they broke into my home,” Trump wrote in a post shared to Truth Social this week.
“Wrong!” he continued. “They took them out of cartons and spread them around on the carpet, making it look like a big ‘find’ for them. They dropped them, not me – Very deceiving…And remember, we could have NO representative, including lawyers, present during the Raid. They were told to wait outside.”
According to a report from Sky News, the image of scattered documents was released in a court filing and showed a box full of framed photos, including a Time Magazine cover depicting Trump sitting in the Oval Office with a gaggle of political rivals peering through the window.
In a previous statement made on Truth Social, Trump remarked, “Terrible the way the FBI, during the Raid of Mar-a-Lago, threw documents haphazardly all over the floor (perhaps pretending it was me that did it!), and then started taking pictures of them for the public to see.”
He sarcastically pointed out, “Thought they wanted them kept Secret? Lucky I declassified!”
Trump has made no secret of his beef with the FBI’s highly political raid on his Mar-a-Lago home, and has previously pressured agents within the bureau to say “we aren’t going to take it anymore.”
Per RSBN, Trump asked, “When are the great Agents, and others, in the FBI going to say, ‘we aren’t going to take it anymore,’ much as they did when James Comey read off a list of all of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s crimes, only to say that no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute.”
