When the FBI visited the south Florida home of Donald Trump, they discovered this when searching his safe.
More efforts are being made by the federal government to either imprison Trump or prevent him from standing for office again in 2024. A previous President of the United States has never been politically attacked to this degree in contemporary American history.
The FBI conducted a raid on Mar-a-Lago and Trump's private residence on Monday night as part of an investigation seeking access to the president's records. This involves a number of personal items, including letters from foreign leaders, a letter from former President Barack Obama, and others. Trump's lawyers have often insisted that the records were not preserved for malicious purposes.
Within hours of the raid, the Trump family released a statement expressing shock at how far the country had fallen in the two years after their father was removed from office.
The former president's second son, Eric Trump, revealed the contents of the Mar-a-Lago safe that were seized by the FBI. Eric stated in an interview that he and his father were in New York City during the time that federal officials raided the south Florida resort. According to what they found, the search was fruitless.
Trump claimed in a statement released early Monday morning that FBI investigators had "broken into" his safe and were "besieging" his Florida estate.
Executive Vice President Eric Trump of the Trump Organization shared with the crowd that his father was a hoarder and had kept countless documents and personal artifacts throughout the years. Trump began doing this long before he was elected president.
However, in January, Trump provided the National Achieves with a large number of documents, and he has been cooperative ever since. Having more than 30 FBI agents visit Trump's home is a clear indication of the political persecution he is experiencing.
According to the agency, its personnel took 15 boxes of records from Mar-a-Lago that were not turned over to the National Archives in accordance with the Presidential Records Act. Information of national security importance was tagged on some of these files.
Three lawyers for Donald Trump were present during the search, which lasted from 9 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. FBI officers dressed as ordinary citizens carried out the raid, seizing documents and boxes and breaking into a safe that seemed to be a hotel safe in Donald Trump's office. According to the study, agents were only allowed to remove anything directly related to the search.
When did we decide to do this? To what end does the administration believe it can continue attacks against a former President without suffering terrible and possibly lethal consequences?
