(RepublicanWire.org) – Former President Donald Trump has no problem at all with the Justice Department releasing the search warrant and property receipt used by the FBI to search his Mar-a-Lago home. As a matter of fact, he encourages it.
“Release the documents now!” Trump wrote on TRUTH Social at 11:40 p.m. ET Thursday, just hours after the judge’s decision was announced.
Trump also called the raid on his Florida estate “unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary” and said he approved of the “immediate release” of the warrant, sending a clear message that he is not concerned over the matter and that he has nothing to hide.
“Not only will I not oppose the release of documents related to the unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary raid and break-in of my home in Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago, I am going a step further by ENCOURAGING the immediate release of those documents,” the former president wrote, “even though they have been drawn up by radical left Democrats and possible future political opponents, who have a strong and powerful vested interest in attacking me, much as they have done for the last 6 years.”
Trump also said the raid was a part of an “unprecedented political weaponization of law enforcement” and suggested it could be an effort to keep him from re-seeking office.
“My poll numbers are the strongest they have ever been, fundraising by the Republican Party is breaking all records, and midterm elections are fast approaching. This unprecedented political weaponization of law enforcement is inappropriate and highly unethical,” he said. “The world is watching as our Country is being brought to a new low, not only on our border, crime, economy, energy, national security, and so much more, but also with respect to our sacred elections!”
Trump posted the following on his Truth Social account just hours after Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart wrote an order on the DOJ’s motion to unseal the warrant and property receipt.
“The United States shall immediately serve a copy of its Motion on counsel for former President Trump,” Reinhart wrote Thursday. “On or before 3:00 p.m. Eastern time on August 12, 2022, the United States shall file a certificate of conferral advising whether former President Trump opposes the Government’s motion to unseal.”
The Washington Post reported that FBI agents were looking for classified documents related to nuclear weapons, among other items.
Trump on Friday denied a report from The Washington Post that said FBI agents were looking for classified documents related to nuclear weapons, among other items, when they searched his Mar-a-Lago home this week.
On his Truth Social platform, Trump said that “Nuclear weapons is a hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a hoax,” referring to then-special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.
Trump attacked the officials involved with the search of his home, calling them “sleazy.” He also suggested it was possible he was being framed, saying the agents who searched his home didn’t want other people present in areas they were searching. “Planting information anyone?” he wrote.
