FBI Raids Mar-A-Lago, Trump’s Residence in Florida
President Donald J. Trump issued a statement Monday denouncing the raid on his private club and residence in Palm Beach, Florida.
Trump said FBI agents searched Mar-A-Lago and even broke open a safe.
A source familiar tells @BrookeSingman that FBI agents went to Mar-a-Lago and looked in every single office, safe, and grabbed documents and boxes without going through them on the property. The source said they took boxes and documents to go through later, once they left MAL

MAL has been known as the “Southern White House.”
The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.

Attorney General Merrick Garland approved an FBI raid on the former president who personally revoked his nomination for the Supreme Court when he won the presidency.
Read that sentence a couple of times.

Mike Emanuel just reported that sources indicate that the safe was opened by a safe cracker but was found empty. That only highlights questions of any evidence of direct involvement by Trump and any intention effort at concealment.

I’m on record as preferring an alternative to Trump in 2024. But this raid will make many people like me rally behind Trump — for all his flaws — to stop the abuses of power by federal law enforcement, intelligence services, military brass, and, most of all, Democrats in Congress

Trump was in New York City at the time of the raid. It was his son Eric who told him of what was happening.
