FBI agents could plant evidence inside former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home or elsewhere in the building, Trump suggested on Wednesday.
“The FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago,” Trump said on his social media network Truth Social on Wednesday. “Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting,'” he said.
Trump continued: “Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them, everybody out? Obama and Clinton were never ‘raided,’ despite big disputes!”
Former Trump official Kash Patel told Breitbart that Trump bay declassify some information that he believes the public should show: “Trump declassified whole sets of materials in anticipation of leaving government that he thought the American public should have the right to read themselves.”
“The White House counsel failed to generate the paperwork to change the classification markings, but that doesn’t mean the information wasn’t declassified,” Patel said. “I was there with President Trump when he said ‘We are declassifying this information.'”
“This story is just another disinformation campaign designed to break the public trust in a president that lived on transparency,” Patel went on to say. “It’s yet another way to attack Trump and say he took classified information when he did not.”
Trump lawyer Christina Bobb said that the raid was a “weird flex” and said that there is “no security that something wasn’t planted. I’m not saying that’s what they did.”
“This was a completely unnecessary power flex. It was a weird flex,” said Bobb. “It’s quite honestly sad to see what they have done to our country,” she said.
Daily Mail reports that agents went inside the 128-room estate for nine hours. Trump’s lawyers were not allowed to enter.
