Trump, FBI blitz lasted 9 hours: 10 boxes of confiscated materials

Nine hours of searching and ten cases of material. The FBI Blitz at the Trump house, according to The Wall Street Journal, it is not part of the State Department’s Jan. 6 investigation. The 30 federal agents searched the former president’s private quarters in Mar-a-Lago, also searched former first lady Melania’s closet and spent hours in Trump’s confidential office, the New York Post reported, citing some sources. According to the Washington Post, the FBI’s raid was aimed at determining whether the former president or his allies had surrendered or minus the documents and other materials belonging to the government. Authorities have begun to doubt Trump’s returned documents in recent months, as they suspect some were withheld by the former president. Attorney General Merrick Garland has been targeted by the Republican Party. Not even former president-appointed director of the FBI Christopher Wray escapes the attacks. Compact Republicans are asking her for an explanation of unprecedented action. “It needs to be explained what led to the search,” said the Senate Republican leader. Mitch McConnellexpressing his party’s dissatisfaction there. The Justice Department does not comment. Mouths also sewn to the FBI.

The agents confiscated the cell phone of Republican Congressman Scott Perry, a Donald Trump ally, Perry told Fox, noting that he had been approached by three agents in the last few hours, who issued him with an arrest warrant and seized the phone. “You made no attempt to contact my attorney – noted Perry again – I’m outraged but not surprised, for the fact that the FBI, under the direction of Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice, seized a sitting Congressman’s cell phone. And he added: “My phone contains information about my legislative and political activities, private conversations with my wife, family, constituents and friends. None of this is government business.” He then pressed: “As with President Trump, the Justice Department chose this excessive and aggressive approach rather than simply contacting my attorneys.”

The Federal Office’s action has even sparked controversy among voters: “It’s was,” conservative commentator Steven Crowder wrote on Twitter to his 1.9 million followers. A rage shared by many of the former president’s supporters online. “This means war,” wrote The Gateway Pandit, a pro-Trump publication. Thanks to a linked account, a post on Telegram also dropped Stephen Bannon. The flash “shows what many of us have been saying for a while. We’re at war,” said Joe Kent, a Trump-backed House candidate, on the Bannon’s War Room podcast. Harsh and violent language worries political pundits. Even if this does not translate directly into physical violence, it creates an atmosphere of violence that is slowly becoming more and more accepted.

Meanwhile, the former White House tenant – who has not denied the hypothesis of a re-run in the 2024 election – is being questioned under oath about his in the civil investigation of New York Attorney General Letitia James Business practices as a real estate magnate. “Tonight in New York City. Attorney General tomorrow for a continuation of the greatest witch hunt in US history! – wrote Trump via the social network Truth- I and my big company are under attack from all sides. Banana Republic!”. Trump is also grappling with unresolved tax issues. A federal appeals court upheld the lower court’s ruling allowing the House of Representatives to gain access to its tax returns despite his status as a former president. The litigation isn’t over, however, as Trump’s attorneys are sure to appeal to the Supreme Court, the final appellate court in the affair’s trial. If at least four (out of nine) judges vote to review the appeal, it could delay the final decision until next year. Meanwhile, Republicans may have regained a majority in the House of Representatives in November’s midterm elections and may decide to withdraw a request to review the former president’s tax documents. By refusing to show their tax returns to the public, Trump broke with the established tradition followed by his predecessors in modern times.
