Former President Donald Trump is still upset about the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) search of his Mar-a-Lago property.

On Thursday, August 25, the former president took to his social network, Truth Social, to express his disdain. Although there have been a number of incriminating reports, Trump is maintaining his innocence and pushing back against the claims of wrongdoing.

He also took aim at the media for circulating reports about the search.

"Even though I am as innocent as a person can be, and despite MY campaign being spied on by the Radical Left, the FISA COURT being lied to and defrauded, all of the many Hoaxes and Scams that were illegally placed on me by very sick & demented people," Trump began.

"He added, "And without even mentioning the many crimes of Joe and Hunter Biden, all revealed in great detail in the Laptop From Hell, it looks more and more like the Fake News Media is pushing hard for the Sleaze to do something that should not be done!"

Trump went on to take aim at President Joe Biden who insisted that he was not given notice about the FBI's search.

"Joe Biden said he knew nothing about the Break-In of Mar-a-Lago or, the greatest political attack in the history of the U.S. Does anybody really believe this???" the twice-impeached former president wrote in a follow-up post.

The former president also attacked what he described as "radical left" Democratic prosecutors who he believes are pushing an investigation into him for political gain.

"The Radical Left Democrat prosecutors are illegally trying to circumvent, for purely political gain, the Presidential Record’s Act, under which I have done absolutely nothing wrong," Trump wrote after this. "It can not be circumvented, for me or any other President. They illegally Raided my home, and took things that should not have been taken. They even broke into my safe, an unthinkable act!"

"The Justice Department and FBI are “leaking” at levels never seen before," he argued, "and I did nothing wrong!!!"
