Amid an unprecedented FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, President Trump immediately promised to keep fighting for the American people.
In his Monday evening statement confirming the raid, Trump wrote, “I will continue to fight for the Great American People!” despite that his home is “under siege.”
The 45th president was reportedly not home at the time as he was visiting New York City when the raid occurred, according to Fox News.
According to the outlet:
“An FBI source confirmed that FBI agents from Washington, D.C. who are on the bureau’s Evidence Response Team conducted the raid and notified the Miami Field Office just before.
Per standard protocol, FBI Director Wray and Attorney General Garland were aware of the raid even if shortly before and would have been fully briefed.”
The reason for the raid has not yet been made public. However, President Trump has been subject to numerous investigations, such as “the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more,” he wrote in his Monday statement.
Fox News suggested that one possible cause for the FBI raid may be a current DOJ probe that is investigating the discovery of 15 boxes of classified material taken from the White House to Mar-a-Lago after January 2021. However, the outlet noted that it is unclear whether there is a connection between that matter and the raid.
Standing strong amid the “unannounced raid,” President Trump wrote, “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.”
