After promising to lock up his political opponent in both 2016 and his political opponent’s son in 2020, the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the vote twice and tried to stage a coup watched his own Florida home be raided on Monday, with FBI agents swarming the property.
Breaking: The FBI executed a search warrant today at Mar-a-Lago, according to Trump.

It is unclear which criminal investigation prompted the raid, but a warrant signed by a federal judge to search the home of a former U.S. president is not easily or arbitrarily obtained. The search may be related to the classified documents Trump removed from the White House and took to Mar-a-lago, some of which he reportedly flushed down toilets at the golf resort. It may also be the result of the DOJ acting on what has been discovered by the January 6th committee about Trump’s attempted coup or his attempts to pressure Georgia officials to overturn an election.
There are so many crimes to choose from.
Trump took to his social media website, Truth Social, to whine about the raid, create some drama, and stir up his supporters. The last time he worked to rile them up, the Capitol Building was attacked, so Trump’s efforts to do so this time could be even more dangerous by the trapped ex-president.
‘These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents…they even broke into my safe!’
With any luck, that safe was full of classified documents.
None of his “Hillary Clinton did it too!” or “the Democrats are so corrupt, lock them up!” rhetoric is going to help him now, and Twitter was delighted to hear it. Read some of their comments below:
