Former President Donald Trump said his Mar-A-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida, was “under siege” and raided by FBI agents on Monday.
Trump made the comments in a post on his social media platform Truth.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” Trump wrote, adding “These are dark times for our Nation …”
Various media outlets cited anonymous sources who stated the raid was part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents that were classified and may have been at Trump’s Florida home.
Trump, who was in New York at the time of the raid, said it was done by a large group of FBI agents – as many as 30 – and was unannounced.
“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 …” Trump wrote.
Trump said the FBI agents also broke into his safe.
“What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democratic National Committee?” Trump asked.
The former president added that America has become a “broken, Third-World” country that was “corrupt at a level not seen before.”
The Justice Department and White House declined comment to various media outlets.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, on his campaign Twitter account, criticized the raid and contrasted it with the lack of prosecution of and media scrutiny into President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, who made large sums of money in business dealings overseas while his father was vice president, among other allegations leveled against Hunter Biden.
“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,” DeSantis wrote. “Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”

The Administrative State (a.k.a) The Deep State suffered a near death experience when Trump was elected, they can’t afford to have that again, so much corruption would be exposed to the public.
I would not feel too comfortable if I were President Trump because if this effort fails to keep him from running again, he and his family have Deep State Secret Service protection. Would it be a sudden mishap like a fall from the 14th floor balcony of a Trump owed property? Or maybe a rare unexplained fatal illness? The Trump jet has a mid-air explosion? Or maybe just a good old fashion “two in the hat?”
Ha! Reading all the reply’s to this article is hilarious. The article and all the comments are simply the pot calling the kettle black. Biden didn’t illegally try to take over our democracy, Trump did!
Isiah 63 1-6 – You ain’t seen nothing yet. 8/8 = the Lions Gate
lol…..we’re not a democracy! Skipped civics?
Stupid comment – which may be why you think you would thrive in a world without the rule of law run by Trump. And ya, we all know it’s a republic…
Talk about a stupid comment about the pot calling the kettle black Gary Cassady- have you looked in the mirror lately?
Here you are claiming to think the rule of law is so important to you as you support defunding the police and watching Antifa and BLM burn down cities.
How is the “thriving” going on up in Burlington right now?
How is the “thriving” doing in one party Vermont right now?
How’s that crime rate look lately there?
Is THAT what “Thriving” under the Rule Of Law looks like to you?
I’m laughing too- at you!
To Gary, “There are none so blind as those who will not see”. This just means that understanding cannot be forced upon someone who chooses to be ignorant.
Bingo! Here is your proof of all I posted. They are trying to do to Trump the same way they got Al Capone…on technicalities. The HEAD of all Democrat Lawfare in DC is Marc Elias. He just posted this:
“U.S. Code Title 18, Section 2071.
In the paragraph that anyone “having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”
I guess it doesn’t cover anyone using Bleachbit to wipe their harddrive?
They’ve all most caught up with Vermont’s level of corruption.
EB-5……one of the largest scandals in the nation, overseen by our local folks in Montpelier.
Leahy gets banks to pony up a ton of money….problems just vanish.
Vermont is being swindled…left and right……DC has some catching up to do to meet our level of corruption…
We literally have the uniparty complete here….Uniparty starts with UN….
Let’s change course, why do we want our children abuse and intdoctrinated at the beheast of the United Nations and their New World order.
Just say no, to becoming the 1st colony of the United Nations….I did in my vote this morning.
All is not lost…..
This right here is a situation that will never be forgotten.
I’ve been following this and the anger in this nation cannot be unseen right now.
I’ve seen some Tweets from people like Leo Terrell who are normally cool as cucumbers and they are clearly absolutely spitting furious.
Also, there are some well known far Left Liberals now like Chris Mathews, Bari Weiss, Bill Maher,
Joe Scarborough, Alan Dershowitz, Elon Musk, The Starbucks guy, they are ALL saying that the Left has severely over played their hand and gone way to far off the rails..and that was before this even happened.
They have been saying such spot on things in disgust about their own side that the Right is now tuning into these people and liking their perspectives on what they say.
I cannot wait to see what they all say about this insane move by the Bolsheviks in the FBI.
I have no doubt at this point that we’ve just seen the straw that will break this camels back..
The corruption of this government is staggering.
We are being literally robbed to fund a Mafia that works very hard to kill us all to be replaced with illegals flooding our open border.
This is not a conspiracy theory!
Open your eyes!!
While we’re at it? The DOJ & FBI are now nothing but Democrat KGB agents & secret police….So now Congress is about to pass the “Inflation Reduction Act”? USA already has about $31 TRILLION in debt. So while the FBI & DOJ are doing what they do….Pelosi and Schumer boldly lie to the people about their “Inflation Reduction” bill, further adding massive debt – for CLIMATE CHANGE . This is insane..and every level of the Wshinston establishment is in on it…Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches. America is on it’s way to toast. Here are facts of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022:
“$369 billion on energy and climate efforts.
Over $300 billion in Green loan guarantees.
$80 billion to add 80,000 IRS agents.
$60 billion for environmental justice initiatives.
$9 billion in tax credits for wealthy people to by electric vehicles.
$2.6 billion for coastal “habitats”.
$1.5 billion to plant tree’s.
Not to mention that the IRS has stockpiled 4,600 guns and five million rounds of ammunition?
The Small Business Administration (SBA) spent tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars to load its gun locker with Glocks last year. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service modified their Glocks with silencers. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has 3,700 officers, armed with millions of dollars’ worth of guns and ammunition including AR-15’s, Sig Sauer handguns, and semi-automatic pistols. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) agents carry the same sophisticated weapons platforms used by our Special Forces. The Social Security Administration spent $61,129 on bullets including 50,000 rounds of ammunition plus 12-gauge buckshot and slug ammo. The Department of Education (DOE), the Department of the Interior, the U.S. Geological Survey, the Office of the Inspector General, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the Department of Agriculture, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, and other agencies of the ‘administrative state’ are all armed to the teeth.
What’s up with that?
Wow! I never realized I had more than the entire Social Security Administration. What a bunch of slackers.
The fall of America as a free nation is getting closer. Sept 1783 was the beginning of the purge of the Tories and loyalists. I wonder who is going to purged this time.
globalist scum, it’s a big swamp
The more this plays out – the more I see God coming in with His mighty hand. I wouldn’t want to be standing in the shoes of these RINOs, DEM/PROGS, and their supporters when that hand moves. Call it what you will, but the boomerang coming at these people is going to be absolutely incredible. The universe will not tolerate it – 2000 years worth of history proves it to be so.
100% correct, Rich Lachapelle. Look at CLINTON. she just didn’t have a few pieces of paper or such records…she had an illegal whole damned computer storage server IN A CLOSET IN HER HOUSE. FBI neither raider her. no prosecuted her…even though during it she ILLEGALLY deleted 30,000 emails of hard evidence. She skated:
“The official word so far that the FBI raided Donald Trump’s compound at Mar-a-Lago looking for classified documents stands in sharp contrast to the way the bureau and Justice Department acted seven years ago when similar questions arose about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email.
Back then in the summer of 2015, there was no raid of Mrs. Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, N.Y., where the server has been operated. In fact, the former secretary of state’s lawyer, David Kendall, was allowed to keep a thumb drive of the archive of her inbox — complete with classified materials — inside his office.
The FBI even approved a special safe for Kendall to use to store the classified materials. In the end, Mrs. Clinton faced no prosecution because then-FBI Director James Comey refused to send the matter to DOJ even though he declared her handling of classified emails as reckless.
Once again the leadership of the FBI demonstrates their true purpose of the last few decades: as a praetorian guard for the democrat party and the Deep State.
Uniparty….most republicans are in on it too…
The Commiecrats are ushering in the surveillance/police state as fast as they can without realizing that they are pushing us closer and closer to civil war. They are pushing the agenda of Cloward and Piven, it’s why they have no regard for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
“We are fast approaching the stage of ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force”. Ayn Rand
History repeats – Al Capone days.. Dems are desperate to prevent Trump from running again…because they are petrified that if he ever won again, he will this time totally dismantle their power bases in DC, of the Deep State…it DOES exist..and Trump came to close to dismantling it last time. So what they planned out, with their LAWFARE cronies, is that they need a “technicality”, an criminal indictment of some sort….that will legally prevent Trump from running again. It is just like Al Capone! They could not get him for his criminal activities, so they figured a way to get him on tax evasion.. This is exatly what they do to Trump…it appears it all has to do with NARA – National Archives Records Act…and that Trump may have “illegally” taken some records with him when he left the White House. If Trump did, and they find such records (which is why they needed OVER 30 FBI AGENTS!…, he will be criminally indicated by the Democrat DC LAWFARE CROWD… and they will us that to halt his abilty to run for office ever again.
