According to sky news ….. fun times ahead
Former US President Donald Trump has said his Florida home is being raided by the FBI.
Mr Trump said in a statement Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach was being "occupied by a large group of FBI agents".
Neither the FBI or Department of Justice have commented on the reported raid. It is unclear what might have prompted any search warrant.
Mr Trump is currently the focus of a congressional inquiry into last year's US Capitol riot.
According to CNN, Mr Trump was in Trump Tower in New York City at the time of Monday's reported raid.
"These are dark times for our Nation," Mr Trump's statement began.
He said he had co-operated with all relevant government agencies and so the "unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate".
Mr Trump said it amounted to "prosecutorial misconduct" and "the weaponisation of the Justice System" to prevent him from running for the White House again in 2024.
"Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries," he said. "Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before.
"They even broke into my safe!"
Trump says FBI has raided his Florida home, Mar-a-Lago
There’s a dead body buried on his golf course if that helps..
But . . . what about Hillary's emails!!
Well, that's a first.
Only problem with this is that if it leads to nothing then he is going to jump on it to energise his base about being up against the establishment.
It's great how the Politicians who go in the bat for the wealthy manage to portray themselves as being anti establishment.
Yeah, FBI is searching his estate, so it's "dark times" for the whole nation. Clown
Now I understand his "dark times for our Nation" from the beginning of his statement. That this is even in the discussion that he could run again is unbelievable.
If this guy runs again in 2024 I'll lose my faith in the US (ok, tbh, I've already lost it in 2017 )
edit: Removed a sentence
So he was warned to return documents that have to be archived at the White House and didn't listen. His place gets raided to look for documents, which he was warned to return. No fair minded person would defend Trump for being an idiot. The only people that would are grifters and morons.
No way has he taken those documents and just conveniently forgot to return them . He most likely was sharing them
Doing it on the anniversary of Nixon's resignation is just partisan nonsense and clear abuse of power
If he's committed wrong doings sure charge him up, but timing like this is suspect to say the least.
The Dems are creating a monster.
Also interesting that Hunter hasn't been raided yet
You really think anyone cared about the Nixon coincidence?
What are the Dems ‘creating’ exactly? Adherence to the law? Jesus
The loons keep lapping it up and keep doing as they're told
What do you think is going to happen to the other side once the regime changes as it will?
I'd wager the vast, vast, vast majority of people do not know, care, or even remember this little fact so I don't see why it matters.
It's Nixon resignation day eve, kids!
You could find any kind of tenuous link to something on any date. A conspiratorial mind will always leap to find more than is. It's funny to think of the DOJ and FBI halting procedure because someone read one that it was the anniversary of Nixon
Almost pathetic how feeble and stolen the arguments are from @RedDevilsShinja. It's a conspiracy, everyone will be sorry for holding a person accountable to the law (wahhh) and what about other potential crimes?
If you don't think this is politically motivated by the dems then I'm sorry but you're an idiot.
trump appointed the head of the fbi and who decided to raid him
Trump mocked for picking the FBI director who raided him
isn’t that loon alex Jones on trial at the moment? I think it’s more likely it’s connected to that.
the fact the fbi have done this means they are confident in what they have on them. Hopefully they find the evidence they need he was colluding with Putin too
suggestions are farage has been named as a person of interest to the fbi too . Here’s hoping they extradite farage to the us if they have some shit on him
And who do you think was the judge that approved the search warrant was
Also the FBI has clearly shown it's compromised after its mishandling of russiagate in 2016 and then Hunters laptop in 2020. It's since come out that Hunter was having flings with Russian escorts in DC, I'm sure there's no counterintelligence risks there. Accuse Trump of being a Russian agent, find nothing, then they bury their own sides Russian ties, funny how that works isn't it?
Jones has already lost his trial and has a $45m fine
