The FBI seized three of the passports from Donald Trump during the search at his mansion in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, last week, as confirmed by the former president of the United States. The president has released a statement in which he charges harshly against the federal agency, which he accuses of “stealing” his documents and describes his actions as “third world”.
“Wow, in the Mar-a-Lago FBI raid my three passports were stolen, one expired, along with everything else,” Trump wrote on his own social network, adding that “this is an assault on a political opponent at a level that had never been seen before in our country”, emphatically concluding that this seems to him “third world!”.
Specifically, the agents would have taken the current passport of the former president, one that had expired, and the diplomatic document, so that he could not currently use them.
This is a new revelation related to the search carried out by FBI agents last week in the mansion that the former president has in Florida and during which he was not there, he was in his main building in New York.
In addition, Trump himself has also launched another complaint, assuring that several of the documents that the federal agency took from his home would violate attorney-client privilege. «I just learned that the FBI, now famous for the search at Mar-a-Lago, took boxes of material with attorney-client privilege. and also other executive material, which they are aware that they should not have taken, ”said the former president himself.
The FBI seized 11 batches of classified documents during a search of Trump’s Florida mansion a week ago, under a warrant that empowered agents to seize allegedly classified documents. The former president alleges that he himself declassified the suspicious documents. In all, federal agents removed 20 boxes of documents from Trump’s mansion. Now it is known that three passports of the tycoon and former president were also taken.
