Former President Donald Trump revealed the FBI conducted a “deep and ugly search” of his son Barron Trump’s room during the raid on Mar-a-Lago last month.
The 45th president described the FBI raid as a “shocking” abuse of power, and blasted President Joe Biden’s administration for conducting it.
Trump called the Mar-a-Lago raid “one of the most shocking abuses of power by any administration in American history.”
“A few weeks ago you saw when we witnessed one of the most shocking abuses of power by any administration in American history,” Trump told the Pennsylvania crowd on Saturday evening.
“The shameful raid and break-in of my home, Mar-a-Lago, was a travesty of justice that made a mockery of America’s laws, traditions, and principles.”
“The Biden administration invaded the home of their chief political opponent, who is absolutely destroying him and everyone else in the polls. I hate to say it ,even including the Republicans, but we love the Republicans,” Trump added.
Trump also criticized the FBI for selectively choosing Federal magistrate Bruce Reinhart to approve the search warrant.
“On a phony pretext, getting permission from a highly political magistrate, who they handpicked, late in the evening just days before the break-in and trampled upon my rights and civil liberties as if our country that we love so much were a third world nation,” Trump said.
“We’re like a third world nation.”
Besides FBI agents conducting a search of Barron Trump’s room, they also searched former first lady Melania Trump’s room.
As we reported on Saturday, Melania Trump bought a new wardrobe after FBI agents “contaminated” her clothes during the unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago last month.
A close friend told Radar Online that Trump would not feel comfortable wearing clothes that FBI agents touched.
“They rifled through the first lady’s closet drawers and everything else, and even did a deep and ugly search of the room of my 16-year-old son,” Trump told the crowd, who responded with loud boos.
He added that the FBI left everything “in far different condition than it was when they started.”
“Can you believe it? The FBI and the Justice Department have become vicious monsters, controlled by radical left scoundrels, lawyers, and the media who tell them what to do —you people right there— and when to do it,” Trump said.
