Trump calls FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago home a “witch hunt.”
In a statement released today, former President Donald Trump called the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida a “witch hunt.”
“This is nothing more than a continuation of the witch hunt that has been going on for years,” Trump said. “The only thing that is new is that now they’re coming after me and my family.”
Trump has long claimed that the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is a “hoax” and a “witch hunt.” Earlier this week, it was revealed that the FBI had raided the home of his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, in connection with the investigation.
The raid on Trump’s home came as a surprise to many, as he has been largely out of the public eye since leaving office. It is not clear what agents were looking for, but it is likely that they were seeking information about Trump’s ties to Russia.
