Former President Donald Trump suggested the FBI may have been ‘planting’ evidence during the highly publicized raid at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.

Members of Trump’s team were blocked from watching the agents raid his home.

The former President wrote on Truth Social post on Wednesday:

“The FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago.”

“Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting.'”

“Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them, everybody out?” said Trump.

FBI agents took around 10 hours to scour Trump’s private office on Monday and also broke into his safe.

At 9 a.m. Monday, around two dozen FBI agents entered the Trump-owned resort, leaving with a handful of boxes of documents,” Trump spokeswoman Christina Bobb told The Epoch Times.

“I didn’t actually get to oversee the search, they wouldn’t let anybody see what they were doing,” she said.

Bobb said she was present when the FBI entered Trump’s premises.

FBI agents were looking for “what they deemed to be presidential records,” Bobb said. “I don’t think there was anything of substance.”

Florida federal magistrate judge, Bruce Reinhart, signed off on a warrant to search Trump’s home.

History

Until 2008, Reinhart worked as a federal prosecutor when he became a defense attorney representing employees of convicted pedophile sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.

The Mar-a-Lago raid came a day after FBI Director Christopher Wray testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he was asked whether whistleblower reports were becoming increasingly politicized.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a longtime critic of Trump, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday:

The Department of Justice “must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of January 6 investigations.”

“DOJ must disclose the bona fide nature of the August 8 action or else the republicans will use it to Discredit the January 6 investigation, which would be a terrible disservice to the good work of the house committee in exposing The Trump administration violations,” the former Democrat governor of New York added.
