FBI agents raid Donald Trump's Florida residence

The FBI ransacked former US President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida.

Trump himself wrote about this on social networks. According to Interfax , there are no details about the search of the ex-US President yet. Journalists do not know whether the investigative actions of the ex-head of state were personally sanctioned by US Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“My beautiful Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida is currently under siege, raided and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said on Truth Social.

He expressed outrage at the search being carried out without any warning and said that he had been subjected to "political persecution", noting that "nothing like this" had ever happened to any US president before. Trump was especially outraged that agents even broke into his safe. It is known that early on the morning of August 8, when the agents raided the residence, Trump was not at home. Most of the security forces were focused on the part of the residence where Trump's offices and personal premises are located.

Earlier, the US Department of Justice suspected Trump that, after losing the second round of the presidential election, he removed secret documents from the White House not to a specialized state archive, but to his estate, which is prohibited by American laws. Trump is also under investigation regarding the storming of the Capitol in January 2021 and Trump's attempt to cancel the results of the presidential election, which was unsuccessful for him in 2020.

Recall that on January 6, 2021, supporters of the former American President Donald Trump, who disagree with the results of the elections in the country, broke in in the american building Congress, where at that time a meeting of congressmen was held, who were supposed to approve the results of the elections in the country. The meeting had to be adjourned. Protesters occupied the building. It took the National Guard to get him released.

This protest resulted in the deaths of five people, including a police officer. Over 50 protesters were detained. More than 300 people were charged with the storming of the Capitol .
