News just broke from CNN, revealing that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has executed a search warrant raid on ex-President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home/resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
According to CNN’s Kaitlin Collins, Donald J. Trump himself confirmed the FBI search and raid of his country club and post-White House home in a lengthy statement he released to the outlet, full of unhinged rage against Democrats, law enforcement officials, and even Hilary Clinton.
The scandal-ridden ex-president’s statement reads:
These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home… is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents. Nothing like this has happened to a President of the United States before… They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat [sic] National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States.
The political persecution of President Donald J. Trump has been going on for years, with the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more, it just never ends. It is political targeting at the highest level!”

Trump proceeded to air out his grievances that his 2016 Democratic opponent, Hilary Clinton, was never served with a search warrant by the FBI, and claimed that she was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 emails” and “even took antique furniture” from the White House.
“The lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt must be exposed and stopped,” Trump screamed in the unhinged, fear-laden statement. “I will continue to fight for the Great American People!”
Now, none other than Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, and self-described “fixer,” has spoken out in an exclusive statement to Raw Story after learning of the news that his former legal client was just raided by the FBI.
Cohen has been a regular target of Donald Trump’s unhinged retaliation over the years.
“It’s never good when the FBI raids your property; especially when you’re Donald Trump and you’ve been storing documents at that location,” Cohen said in his response to the bombshell news.
Raw Story writes that Cohen was referencing the explosive report out from Axios just this morning on exclusive photos obtained from New York Times’ Maggie Haberman that allegedly showed pieces of torn-up official documents in both a White House toilet as well as an Air Force One toilet. Haberman’s photos appear to serve as proof for previous reports from earlier this year, alleging that Donald Trump had a habit of regularly destroying official documents that were subject to federal preservation laws — including tearing papers up, burning them, eating scraps of paper, and even flushing documents down the toilet, to the extent that it often left them clogged.
As it stands, it is unclear as to what the FBI was searching for during the raid of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Palm Beach resort. However, multiple recent reports have indicated that the Justice Department’s investigation into the corrupt former president and his attempts to overthrow the 2020 presidential election has gained an enormous amount of steam as of late.
