The unexpected FBI raid on former president Donald Trump set a fire in the political world and woke all the journalists this week.
Former president Donald Trump, on Friday, in a truth social post, claimed that the FBI embedded the evidence in his Mar-a-Lago residence earlier in the week during the raid process.
The reaction of Mr Trump was filled with anger and included grudge, and the response was given on his social media site, Truth social.
“Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more. Same sleazy people involved,” Trump’s statement.
The statement came out on Thursday after some sources informed The Washington Post that the items discovered by the FBI also included documents related to nuclear weapons. The sources didn’t educate the channel on whether the items list included U.S. weapons or weapons from another country.
Earlier this week, U.S. former president Donald Trump stated that the release of a search warrant that will allow the FBI to search his house would not be opposed by him.
Adding to it, a deadline was too given to Mr Trump for 15:00 EST (19:00 GMT) on Friday afternoon that is supposed to object to the unsealing, but for now, his statement is unclear. Also, Trump had the warrant with a partially censored receipt of the property in which seized items were listed during the search.
“Not only will I not oppose the release of documents related to the unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary raid and break-in of my home in Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago, I am going a step further by ENCOURAGING the immediate release of those documents,” His official statement.
Further, he added that this was despite them being “drawn up by radical left Democrats and possible future political opponents, who have a strong and powerful vested interest in attacking me, much as they have done for the last six years”.
Also, it is believed by many that the FBI search could be connected to an investigation if the former president removed the sensitive material from the White House.
“Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-a-Lago with our lawyer’s, or others, present. Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close – said “ABSOLUTELY NOT.” Planting information anyone?” His statement.
Also, in a statement delivered on Thursday, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland said he approved the FBI raid on Trump’s house in Florida.
“I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant in this matter,” Garland informed the reporters. “The department does not take such a decision lightly.”
Furthermore, Garland didn’t give a reason behind the raid but forced there was a probable cause for the raid. Additionally, Garland asked the court to publicize the case documents.
Also, Mike Pence too expressed deep concern about the event and stated the raid smacked of “partisanship” by the Justice Department. The raid was also condemned by Trump, as well as a politically motivated move and a pure weaponization of the justice Department.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” Trump stated.
Also, after some days of the FBI raid, former president Trump was questioned multiple times for four hours straight at the Manhattan office of Letitia James, the New York state attorney general. The latter was assigned to investigate the business history of Mr Trump.
Also, on his Truth social platform, the former president argued that the raid was unnecessary. His private lawyers were fully cooperating, and “the government could have had whatever they wanted if we had it”.
