FBI executes search warrant at Mar-a-Lago
The FBI has executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago, the Florida home to the former president, Donald Trump, several news outlets are reporting.
First to break the news was the publisher of Florida Politics, Peter Schorsch.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation “today executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago, two sources confirm to” Florida Politics, he wrote.
“They just left,” one source said.
He adds cautiously: “Not sure what the search warrant was about.”
But minutes later CNN’s Kaitlan Collins reported: “The FBI executed a search warrant today at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, the former president confirms to CNN in a lengthy statement.”
Schorsch later posted an announcement from Trump:
Collins reports that “Trump says the raid was unannounced and adds, ‘They even broke into my safe.'”
Earlier this year former top FBI official Frank Figliuzzi at MSNBC noted a federal grand jury was impaneled to investigate “the handling of 15 boxes of classified White House documents that were squirreled away at Mar-a-Lago.”
There is no current reporting indicating that is why the FBI was at Mar-a-Lago.
