Raided Safe Was Empty, Eric Trump Says
FBI agents broke into former President Donald Trump’s empty safe at his Mar-a-Lago residence, according to his son Eric Trump.
Eric Trump told foxnews‘Sean Hannity that he got the call about the raid and informed his father about the search. He said more than 30 FBI agents “gave absolutely no notice” before they started “ransacking an office, ransacking a closet” and broke into a safe.
Trump added that his father “didn’t even have anything in the safe.”
The former president also said agents broke into his safe, according to a statement, but did not disclose the contents of the safe.
Trump also said that the purpose of this raid was because “the National Archives wanted to corroborate whether or not Donald Trump had any documents in his possession.”
“And my father has worked so collaboratively with them for months,” he said. “In fact, the lawyer that’s been working on this was totally shocked. He goes, ‘I had such an amazing relationship with these people and all of a sudden, on no notice, they send, you know, 20 cars and 30 agents? ‘”
Eric Trump’s wife, Lara Trump, told foxnews Monday night that the raid came as Democrats are “terrified” that Donald Trump will announce he is running for president again.
“They detest Donald Trump, not just on the Democrat side but the general establishment, because he’s not one of them because he doesn’t play their game,” she said.
“They are terrified he’s going to announce any day that he’s running for president in 2024, and this is a very convenient way to just throw a little more mud on Donald Trump, as though they haven’t already done enough,” she added.
