President Donald Trump revealed yet another shocking piece of information related to the FBI’s raid of his private residence in Mar-a-Lago, sharing in a post written on Truth Social Monday that they had “stolen” three of his passports.
“Wow!” the 45th president wrote. “In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else. This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our Country. Third World!”
Last week, the FBI raided Trump’s home in Palm Beach, Florida, in an unprecedented move from the agency, marking the first time in history that a president’s home had ever been raided.
“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections,” Trump stated last week in a statement responding to the FBI’s move.
Over the past weekend, Trump took to Truth Social to slam the “ridiculous political grandstanding of a ‘break in’ to a very storied, important, and high visibility place, just before the Midterm Elections.” He pointed out that, ‘The whole World was watching as the FBI rummaged through the house, including the former First Lady’s closets (and clothing!), alone and unchecked.”
He further remarked that “there was no way of knowing if what they took was legitimate, or was there a ‘plant?’ This was, after all, the FBI!”
The question many Americans are asking following the raid on the president’s home is how the country proceeds following a dangerous new precedent that has been set by the FBI’s seizure of property and personal items belonging to a United States president.
