Raid is reported to have been aimed at recovering documents containing classified information
No sábado, 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 Flórida.
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 a statement on Twitter, ele disse: “Biden’s out of control DOJ [Departamento de Justiça] 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!!!”
Sr 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 The Washington Post publicado quinta-feira 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.
Trump comparou o relatório à investigação sobre a interferência da Rússia com o 2016 eleição presidencial e a investigação do conselho especial de Robert Mueller.
“A questão das armas nucleares é uma farsa, assim como a Rússia, Rússia, A Rússia era uma farsa, dois impeachments foram uma farsa, a investigação Mueller foi uma farsa, e muito mais," ele disse. “As mesmas pessoas desprezíveis envolvidas.”
Mr Trump asked why the FBI would not allow inspection of Mar-a-Lago with his lawyers present.
“Fez-os esperar lá fora no calor, não os deixaria nem perto de dizer “absolutamente não,'" ele disse. “Plantar informação qualquer um?”
