Unprecedented FBI raid on the home of a U.S. President

PALM BEACH, Fla., August 8, 2022 – As part of a federal investigation into allegations of the removal of classified documents from the White House when he left office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation today raided Mar-a-Lago, the home of former President Donald J. Trump.

The Secret Service was notified by the FBI in advance of the action. According to USA Today, the FBI raiding the home of “a former U.S. president has little precedent in American politics — if any.”

In an emailed statement, President Trump accuses that the law enforcement action by the FBI as “prosecutorial misconduct” and “the weaponization of the Justice System.”

He added that “such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries. Sadly, America has now become one  of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before.”

Statement by the 45th President of the United States, Donald J Trump, on the FBI raid of his Mar-a-Largo home.

In a tweet, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) applauded the FBI raid and called on the jailing of former President Trump.

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel in a tweet sharply criticized the move by the FBI calling it “outrageous.”

No statements by the both the Department of Justice and FBI related to this recent law enforcement action have yet to be released.

Lara Trump, wife to Eric Trump, warns of the precedent this has for the average American citizen.

“If this is what they are able to do to the former president of the United States, think about what they can do to you,” Lara Trump said.

  1. No one should be above the law. This must have been signed off by the FBI Director (Trump appointee) and I’ve also read the judge who signed off on the warrant is also a Trump appointee.
