FBI executes search warrant on Trump's Florida home

Gray Frame Corner

Ex-Former US President Donald Trump has said his Florida home has been raided by the FBI, and agencies have broken into a safe.

CBS News confirmed on Tuesday notes that the FBI's execution of a search warrant at Trump's Mar-a-Lago property was related to an investigation into its handling of the National Archives' records.

"An attack like this can only happen in broken, third world countries," he said. "Unfortunately, America has now become one of the countries that is corrupt at a level never seen before. "They even broke into my safe!"

In February, the National Archives, the US government agency that manages the preservation of the president's records, asked the Justice Department to investigate Trump's handling of official papers.

But officials say the former president illegally tore several documents. Some of them had to be taped back together, the archives said. Mr Trump at the time dismissed reports that he had misrepresented official records as "fake news".

Ms Haberman obtained photos, which she says show the paper in a toilet bowl at the White House. A senior White House official told CBS that the West Wing had not been given any information about the FBI raid on Mr Trump's home.

US President Joe Biden's White House has said it is limiting its interactions with top Justice Department officials to avoid political pressure or any kind of unwarranted signal.

Mr Biden vowed to stay out of Justice Department affairs during his White House campaign. The president and his family are also waiting to see whether federal prosecutors will indict his son, Hunter Biden, on tax evasion or other federal charges.

In addition to an investigation into the National Archives, a US House of Representatives select committee is investigating Mr Trump's actions around the US Capitol riots on 6 January 2021 – when a crowd of his supporters rioted in Congress as lawmakers beat Mr Biden To certify the election victory.

The US Justice Department is investigating Mr Trump's challenge to the results of the 2020 presidential election. Attorney General Merrick Garland has said he intends to hold "everyone" accountable.

And a prosecutor in Fulton County, Georgia is also investigating whether Trump and his aides tried to interfere with that state's results from the 2020 presidential election.
