FBI raids Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Home

FBI agents executed a search warrant against the US Former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida, and had even broken into his personal safe.

American media reported the search was part of an investigation into the potential mishandling of presidential documents that Trump had brought to his residence after leaving office in January 2021.

CNN News quoted that the former President’s son Eric Trump told Fox News “the purpose of the raid…(was to) corroborate whether or not Donald Trump had any documents in his possession.”

CNN news further said that the agents were seeking to examine the boxes of documents that had been taken from the White House and to determine where they were kept. 

However, The FBI has not released any official statement regarding the reasons for the search. But the Justice Department has been investigating the former President’s handling of White House records after the US National Archives stated in February that it had found classified information in 15 boxes of records that it had retrieved from Trump’s lawyers.
