The FBI raid of former President Donald Trump's home was reportedly focused on documents Trump may have taken with him from the White House to Mar-A-Lago after leaving office.
Trump announced his Florida home was "under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents" in a statement on Monday.
"Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third-World Countries, Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before," Trump said. "They even broke into my safe!"
The New York Times' Maggie Haberman reported the investigation "appeared to be focused on material that Mr. Trump had brought with him to Mar-a-Lago, his private club and residence, after he left the White House," shortly after Trump confirmed the FBI raid. . .
CNN and Politico also reported that the raid, which took "hours," focused on potential documents that were improperly removed from the Trump White House.
