USA, Trump attacks the FBI: My passports were stolen

NEW YORK. Donald Trump accused FBI agents of “stealing” his passports during a search of his Florida resort a week ago. “Wow – he commented on his social platform Truth – in the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago my three passports, one expired, were stolen along with something else. This is an attack on a political opponent on a scale unprecedented in our country. Third World”. The passports Trump is referring to are probably the American one and the red one, diplomatic, which is given to members of the government. The reason for the possible seizure, which is generally done to prevent the person being searched from entering the country leaves is not clear.

Earlier, Trump said he had invited his staff to “do whatever it takes” with the Justice Department because of the “need to bring the temperature down.” The invitation, the tycoon told Fox News, comes after a surge in threats against the FBI over the federal agency’s searches of the former US president’s Florida vacation spot. “I said to do whatever I can to help,” he said, “because the temperature in this country needs to come down. Otherwise terrible things can happen.” But then, in the same speech, Trump returned to attack the FBI for seizing “secret documents” and defended his supporters’ attacks by saying “they will not accept any more fraud.” The tycoon recalled the FBI investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, calling it a “witch hunt”. “People are very angry – he added – for what is happening”.
