FBI agents executing a warrant have searched former President Donald Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago, Palm Beach Florida.
The raid was confirmed by Trump in a statement.
“My beautiful home Mar A Lago in Palm Beach, Florida is currently under siege, raided and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” he said in a statement.
“After working and cooperating with the relevant government agencies, this unannounced raid at my home was not necessary or appropriate.”
The execution of a search warrant at a former president’s home comes as the Justice Department has accelerated its investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
It is also examining Trump’s actions to overturn the 2020 election results to remain in power.
It was not immediately clear what was examined during the search, but Trump said the law enforcement officials “even broke into my safe.”
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” Trump said.
Reports said he was not at home, at the time of the raid on Monday.
