    The 'special master' going through documents seized at Mar-a-Lago has given Donald Trump's lawyers eight days to back up his claims that FBI agents planted material while carrying out a search of his club. Judge Raymond Dearie included the order in a new 'case management plan' for processing through some 11,000 documents – and follows Trump repeatedly making the allegation publicly without offering evidence of FBI misconduct. 'No later than September 30, 2022, Plaintiff shall submit a declaration or affidavit that includes each of the following factual matters,' the judge wrote, including 'a list of any specific items set forth in the Detailed Property Inventory that Plaintiff asserts were not seized from the Premises on August 8, 2022.' The inventory lists items that FBI agents catalogued following the August 8 search of Trump's private club in West Palm Beach, Florida. The Justice Department says that included more than 100 documents marked 'classified,' with some bearing top secret markings. Trump, in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, claims he 'declassified everything,' which appears to contradict his claim that the...
    Donald Trump told Sean Hannity in a new interview that perhaps FBI agents who searched his home at Mar-a-Lago were looking for Hillary Clinton's deleted emails – only to have his interviewer clarify that Trump wasn't claiming he possessed them. Trump made the startling comment in an interview where he defended the propriety of storing government information at his Florida club, even if documents are marked 'classified.'  'You can declassify just by saying, it’s declassified. Even by thinking about it,' Trump said, speaking to the executive's broad declassification authority. After repeating his claim that he declassified the material, trump tore into the National Archives and Records Administration, which exchanged letters with his lawyers while the agency pursued the return of government material.  'Now, I declassified things, and we were having a lot of problems with NARA. You know, NARA is a radical left group of people running that thing, and when you send documents over there, I would say there’s a very good chance that a lot of those documents will never be seen again,' he said. 'Were they looking...
    A heavily redacted version of the affidavit that justified the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's Florida residence has been released to the public. A federal judge ordered that the affidavit, whose unredacted version likely explains in detail what the Justice Department is investigating in relation to Trump and possibly reveals sources, must be unsealed by noon Friday. But those details could remain hidden, as Judge Bruce Reinhart accepted Justice Department arguments that there was a "compelling" need to mask significant portions of the document. On Monday, Reinhart had ordered at least partial disclosure of the document, saying it served the public interest in the case, as it involves the unprecedented search of the home of a former president. Justice authorities had argued against unsealing the document, saying it would require redactions "so extensive as to render the remaining unsealed text devoid of meaningful content." FBI agents raided Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida on August 8, seizing boxes containing a large amount of highly classified documents that Trump had not returned to the government despite multiple requests...

    Republican Rep. Scott Perry says that the FBI confiscated his personal cellphone one day after FBI agents raided former president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. 'I'm outraged — though not surprised — that the FBI under the direction of Merrick Garland's DOJ, would seize the phone of a sitting Member of Congress,' Perry said in a statement to Fox News on Tuesday. 'My phone contains info about my legislative and political activities, and personal/private discussions with my wife, family, constituents, and friends. None of this is the government's business.'  Perry said that while he and his family were traveling earlier Tuesday, he was approached by three FBI agents who handed him a warrant and seized his cellphone.  Republican Rep. Scott Perry says that the FBI confiscated his personal cellphone one day after FBI agents raided former president Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home Perry, a loyal Trump ally, is an original member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and took over as the group's leader at the beginning of the year, Fox News reported RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...
    \u201cThe Biden regime is out of control.\nhttps://t.co/ZO2qoVlrLt\u201d — Thomas Massie (@Thomas Massie) 1660083370 Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on Monday announcing that the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. In the statement, Trump declared, "my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents." "It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections," Trump said in the statement on Monday.
    Former Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday that he was concerned about the FBI's raid of former President Donald Trump's home Mar-a-Lago - despite their 20-month estrangement. 'I share the deep concern of millions of Americans over the unprecedented search of the personal residence of President Trump,' Pence tweeted Tuesday afternoon. 'No former President of the United States has ever been subject to a raid of their personal residence in American history.' On Monday, Trump confirmed that FBI agents had raided Mar-a-Lago, after media reports said agents were spotted leaving the ex-president's Florida home and private club.  Trump raged against the move, saying it represented 'dark times for our Nation,' pushing that the Biden administration was going after him as a political target.  'After years where FBI agents were found to be acting on political motivation during our administration, the appearance of continued partisanship by the Justice Department must be addressed,' Pence also said.  'Yesterday's action undermines public confidence in our system of justice and Attorney General Garland must give a full accounting to the American people as to why...
    Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, was raided by the FBI on Monday, a high-profile move in the ongoing investigations into the former President. While the FBI has not yet commented on why it conducted the raid, details indicate it was likely a part of an ongoing investigation into Trump's removal of sensitive White House documents at the end of his term. FBI agents reportedly focused their search of the property on the former President's office space, removed papers and documents, and even broke open a safe. The raid does not suggest that criminal charges are near or even expected – but the FBI would have needed a search warrant that was court authorized.  How the raid could effect the 2024 election remains to be seen, but if convicted of violating removing documents from the White House Trump could face up to three years and prison and be barred from holding public office. A source close to the president told NBC the raid is only likely to galvanize the president to announce a 2024 bid.  The source also said...
    Trump is under investigation for keeping classified White House documents at his Palm Beach residence. WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI searched Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate as part of an investigation into whether he took classified records from the White House to his Florida residence, people familiar with the matter said Monday, a move that represents a dramatic and unprecedented escalation of law enforcement scrutiny of the former president. Trump, disclosing the search in a lengthy statement, asserted that agents had opened up a safe at his home and described their work as an "unannounced raid" that he likened to "prosecutorial misconduct." The search intensifies the months-long probe into how classified documents ended up in boxes of White House records located at Mar-a-Lago earlier this year. It occurs amid a separate grand jury investigation into efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and adds to the potential legal peril for Trump as he lays the groundwork for another run. Familiar battle lines, forged during a four-year presidency shadowed by FBI and congressional investigations, quickly took shape again Monday...
    Donald Trump has accused the FBI of double standards after they raided his Mar-a-Lago estate to obtain presidential records - but 'allowed Hillary Clinton to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails'. The former president reacted with fury to news that his Mar-a-Lago estate was searched by the FBI, while he was in New York City. Trump, 76, said his Florida home was 'under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.' 'They even broke into my safe!' he said. '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,' he said in a statement.  'It is political targeting at the highest level! 'Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress.  'Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House. 'I stood up to America's bureaucratic corruption, I restored power to...
    Democrats and their supporters have been both celebrating and poking fun at the FBI's decision to rail former US president Donald Trump's Mar-A-Lago residence in Florida on Monday.  The FBI did not provide any comments on what the search might be for, nor did Trump give any indication of why federal agents were at his home. But as far as Democrats were concerned, no further information was needed as to why the principal federal law enforcement agency of the country was in attendance.  Michael Cohen, who served as an attorney for Trump from 2006 to 2018 and who went to prison after admitting he covered up Trump's 'dirty deeds' led the chorus of approval, tweeting a photo of himself sitting in his car, grinning from ear to ear.  Democratic Twitter users appeared delighted Mar-a-Lago was being raided by the FBI Monday, led by Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen After Mar A Lago was raided by the FBI, Donald Trump is seen leaving Trump Tower in New York City escorted by his Secret service and NYPD detail Cohen, who...

    Saul Loeb/AFP via Getty Images Prominent conservatives reacted to the raid on former President Donald Trump’s home Monday evening with a mix of anger and accusations the search was politically-motivated. Trump announced his home was being searched by a team of FBI agents who had accessed his personal safe. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” Trump said. “After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.” Fox News host Brian Kilmeade tweeted he had spoken with Eric Trump, who told him the raid was conducted by roughly 30 agents. Kilmeade baselessly claimed the White House approved the raid.
