Raid is reported to have been aimed at recovering documents containing classified information
Op Saterdag, Trump Jr shared a meme of a man sitting between a pile of underwear, with the caption: “Feds in Melania’s closet.”
The meme was a presumable reaction to the FBI’s search of ex-president and his father Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
The raid is reported to have been aimed at recovering documents containing classified information that was brought to the home after Mr Trump left the White House in January 2021.
During the search, the authorities reportedly found an order pardoning Roger Stone and 11 boxes of classified documents. There was a box bound in “leather”, and information about the “president of France”.
There were also “miscellaneous secret documents”, and a binder of photos.
Many people, including Mr Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and wife Melania, have been thought to be possible FBI informants in connection to the raid.
Trump Jr on the other hand was mocked on social media after he claimed that an FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago is “ripping the country apart.”
In 'n verklaring op Twitter, hy het gesê: “Biden’s out of control DOJ [Departement van Justisie] is ripping this country apart with how they’re openly targeting their political enemies.”
“This is what you see happen in 3rd World Banana Republics!!!”
Mnr Trump has denied reports that he had documents related to nuclear weapons at his home on Friday morning and accused the FBI of “planting information.”
He lashed out on his media platform Truth Social in response to a report from Die Washington Post published Thursday evening. The report explained that when the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago home earlier this week, they were looking for documents relating to nuclear weapons.
Mr Trump compared the report to the investigation into Russia interfering with the 2016 presidential election and the special counsel investigation by Robert Mueller.
“Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Rusland, Russia was a hoax, two impeachments were a hoax, the Mueller investigation was a hoax, and much more," hy het gesê. “Same sleazy people involved.”
Mr Trump asked why the FBI would not allow inspection of Mar-a-Lago with his lawyers present.
“Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them even close-said “ABSOLUTELY NOT,'" hy het gesê. “Planting information anyone?”
