It’s not clear why the FBI may have taken his passports or why he apparently has three of them. Trump said one was expired.

Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social last Tuesday, blasting President Biden after the raid at Mar-a-Lago.

“A horrible thing that took place yesterday at Mar-a-Lago. We are no better than a third-world country, a banana republic. It is a continuation of Russia, Russia, Russia, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax # 2, the no collusion Mueller Report, and more. To make matters worse it is all, in my opinion, a coordinated attack with Radical Left Democrat state & local D.A.’s & A.G.’s,” Trump said.

“Biden knew all about this, just like he knew all about Hunter’s “deals,” Trump said.

When asked on Tuesday if the Biden administration is weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI against political opponents, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “The president has been very clear from before he was elected. Very clear on this. The president believes in the rule of law, The President believes in the independence of the Department of Justice.”

When pushed on a comment from the Biden admin on the Monday raid at Mar-a-Lago, Jean-Pierre said, “First of all we’re just not going to comment on a Department of Justice Investigation. We’re just not going to comment.”

Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley called for the impeachment of U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland following the FBI raid.

Many Republicans and some Democrats slammed the raid as an unprecedented, politically motivated attack from a federal agency on a potential presidential candidate. Hawley called for Merrick Garland, the U.S. Attorney General, to be impeached and for the FBI to be completely reformed.

The raid by Joe Biden’s FBI on the home of a former president who is also Biden’s chief political opponent is an unprecedented assault on democratic norms and the rule of law,” Hawley wrote. “Biden has taken our republic into dangerous waters.”

“At a minimum, Garland must resign or be impeached. The search warrant must be published. Christoper Wray must be removed. And the FBI reformed top to bottom,” he said.
