One day after a report claiming the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago last week led to the seizure of material that should not have been taken, former President Donald Trump took to social media to ask for it back.
On Saturday, Fox News reported that material covered by either attorney-client privilege or executive privilege may have been taken in the raid last Monday. Trump said he would like his records returned
“Oh great! It has just been learned that the FBI, in its now famous raid of Mar-a-Lago, took boxes of privileged ‘attorney-client’ material, and also ‘executive’ privileged material, which they knowingly should not have taken,” he wrote on his Truth Social platform.
“By copy of this TRUTH, I respectfully request that these documents be immediately returned to the location from which they were taken. Thank you!” Trump wrote.
Trump followed that up with a jab at Democrats and said there is a double standard.
“Just left a large gathering of people and all they could talk about was the complete and total stranglehold that the Radical Left Democrats have over the DOJ & FBI. It shouldn’t be that way. Nobody goes after BLM, ANTIFA, or the rest, despite murder, beatings, and burning down large sections of cities, a very unfair double standard,” Trump wrote.
“They definitely won’t attack the home of a former Democrat President, nor should they. It is all so out of control, great simmering anger!” he posted.
