Trump Lashes Out At DOJ “America Has Never Suffered This Kind Of ABUSE”

Former President Donald Trump again lashed out at the Justice Department, including the FBI, saying its unprecedented raid of his Palm Beach home was a “sneak attack” that has left Americans “angry, hurt, and greatly embarrassed.”

Former President Donald Trump again lashed out at the Justice Department, including the FBI, saying its unprecedented raid of his Palm Beach home was a “sneak attack” that has left Americans “angry, hurt, and greatly embarrassed.”

The former Republican president posted the comments Sunday on Truth Social, his social media platform.

A platoon of FBI agents raided Trump’s home last week, searching for classified information. Recent media reports have said agents recovered about 10 sets of records that ranged in security classification from top secret to confidential, which is the lowest category.

As of Monday, the Justice Department was resisting Trump’s demand to publicize the affidavit that led to the search warrant granted for the investigation of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

As NBC News reported on Monday, federal prosecutors refused to release the document, saying its secrecy is necessary “to protect the integrity of an ongoing law enforcement investigation that implicates national security.”

Prosecutors also maintained the affidavit contained “highly sensitive information about witnesses, including witnesses interviewed by the government; specific investigative techniques; and information required by law to be kept under seal.” U.S. Attorney Juan Gonzalez said in court records, “Disclosure at this juncture of the affidavit supporting probable cause would…cause significant and irreparable damage to this ongoing criminal investigation.”

Such comments will do nothing to appease Trump and his allies, who watched the FBI’s politically motivated pursuit of Trump during the Russia-collusion hoax, which was based on a dossier that was made up.

Trump somehow seemed to think this moment was worse than that, based on his Truth Social posts Sunday night.

“America has never suffered this kind of ABUSE in Law Enforcement!” Trump said on social media.

“For the FBI to RAID the home of the 45(th) President of the United States, or any President for that matter, is totally unheard of and unthinkable,” he continued. “This Break In was a sneak attack on democracy (our Republic!), and was both unannounced and done at a time when the President was not even present.”

In echoing recent comments that the raid was little more than a political “witch hunt,” Trump added the FBI probed his compound for “political, not legal reasons, and our entire Country is angry, hurt, and greatly embarrassed by it.”
