In a post to his Truth Social platform this Sunday, former President Donald Trump raged at the FBI for searching his Mar-a Lago resort for classified documents he allegedly took from the White House a the end of his presidency.
Trump said he arrived in Palm Beach and checked out “the scene” of the search, calling it a “Break-In.”
“Arrived in Florida last night and had a long and detailed chance to check out the scene of yet another government ‘crime,’ the FBI’s Raid and Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago. I guess they don’t think there is a Fourth Amendment anymore, and to them, there isn’t,” Trump wrote.
According to Trump, Mar-a-Lago will “never be the same” after the search.
“In any event, after what they have done, the place will never be the same. It was ‘ransacked,’ and in far different condition than the way I left it. Many Agents – And they didn’t even take off their shoes in my bedroom. Nice!!!”
Trump then cited the 4th Amendment once again, which protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures by the government.
“It has already been proven that so much has been wrongfully taken, it is not a ‘pretty thing.’ So sad! The 4th Amendment, and much more, has been totally violated, a grave invasion of privacy. I will keep the American public informed on TRUTH!”
Laurence Leamer, the author of “Mar-a-Lago: Inside the Gates of Power at Donald Trump’s Presidential Palace,” said Trump is back in town for a reason.
“Mar-a-Lago is Trump’s spiritual home. It’s the one place in the world where he feels totally comfortable,” Leamer said. “He’s never come back so early as he has this year, but I think it’s a function of how much he is in need of this. He’s in a very difficult place in his life.”
