Trump Says FBI Took His Passports In Mar-A-Lago Raid
President Donald Trump posted on Truth Social that the FBI took his three passports during the Mar-A-Lago raid.
Trump said, “this is an assault on a political opponent…never seen before in our country.”
Wow! In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else. This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our Country. Third World!
It is unclear why they took it.
As more information comes out on the raid many Americans are questioning it.
A recent report claimed that some of the information taken is covered under attorney-client privilege – Trump had demanded that these files be returned.
The FBI seized boxes containing records covered by attorney-client privilege and potentially executive privilege during its raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News, adding that the Justice Department opposed Trump lawyers’ request for the appointment of an independent, special master to review the records.
Sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News Saturday that the former president’s team was informed that boxes labeled A-14, A-26, A-43, A-13, A-33, and a set of documents—all seen on the final page of the FBI’s property receipt —contained information covered by attorney-client privilege.
The FBI seized classified records from Trump’s Palm Beach home during its unprecedented Monday morning raid, including some marked as top secret. But the former president is disputing the classification, saying the records have been declassified.
