FBI Raids Donald Trump's House in Mar-a-Lago, Florida

Trump wasn't home at Mar-a-Lago. That's his winter residence. He spends his summers at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. The FBI had a search warrant but no one has said what they were looking for that I've seen.

Former President Donald Trump said in a statement Monday that his home at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, was “raided” by “a large group of FBI agents.”

Trump also claimed the presence of law enforcement was unannounced and the reason was politically motivated, though he did not provide specifics.

Remnants of the boxes of documents he packed off illegally. You remember that whole story?  Archives got back most of them, some classified as top secret.  Maybe there were a few left.

That's my gut feel, too. Presumably they had enough evidence to get a Judge to sign a search warrant.

Believe that anyone found guilty of removing documents from a Federal office is automatically disqualified from holding Federal office in the future.

As well as a fine / up to three years imprisonment.

NBC is now reporting that the raid is tied to classified material.

MIAMI — Former President Donald Trump said Monday that the FBI "raided" his Florida home at Mar-a-Lago and even cracked his safe, with a source familiar telling NBC News that the search was tied to classified information Trump allegedly took with him from the White House to his Palm Beach resort in January 2021.

Trump also claimed in a written statement that the search — unprecedented in American history — was politically motivated, though he did not provide specifics.

In mid-January, the National Archives “arranged for the transport from Mar-a-Lago to the National Archives of 15 boxes that contained Presidential records, following discussions with President Trump’s representatives in 2021,” the agency said in a statement.

When the National Archives discovered the missing documents, it demanded them of the former president, who eventually turned over 15 boxes of the documents in February.

That same month, the National Archives and Records Administration asked the Justice Department to examine whether Trump’s handling of White House records violated federal law, a story first reported by The Washington Post and subsequently confirmed by NBC News sources.

Just hours before agents searched Trump's residence on Monday, the FBI notified the Secret Service about the bureau’s plans to execute the warrant, according to a Secret Service official. The Secret Service facilitated access to the property, the official said, but did not participate in any aspect of the search.

FOX News says that boxes and documents were removed from the home.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-says-mar-a-lago-home-florida-siege-fbi-agents

A source familiar told Fox News that the raid occurred early this morning. The source said agents brought a "safe cracker" and cracked a "relatively new" safe in Mar-a-Lago. The source told Fox News there was "nothing in it."

Multiple sources tell Fox News the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago is related to the materials Trump allegedly brought to his private residence after his presidency concluded. That matter was referred to the Justice Department by the National Archives and Records Administration, which said it found classified material in 15 boxes at the residence. 

Federal law bars the removal of classified documents to unauthorized locations, though it is possible that Trump could try to argue that, as president, he was the ultimate declassification authority.

A source familiar told Fox News that FBI agents went to Mar-a-Lago and looked in every single office, safe, and grabbed documents and boxes without going through them on the property. They took boxes and documents to go through them later.

"They were not being judicious about what they took," the source told Fox News.

How could there be live video of the raid when no one knew it was going to happen? Even the Secret Service didn't know until right before the FBI went in.
