FBI lands at Trump's Florida home
FBI agents have landed without warning for a search at the home of the former US president, Donald Trump.
It was Donald Trump himself who broke the news explaining that his home in Florida was filled with FBI agents last night.
"A large group of FBI agents conducted an unannounced raid on my Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach," the former US president said in a statement.
The search by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is said to be related to the search for some documents obtained by Trump.
Writing on his social media channel on Monday night, Trump described the FBI's move as "not necessary or appropriate," adding that he had cooperated with authorities.
"Dark times have come for our nation," his statement read.
The FBI suspects that Trump took some documents from the White House and took them to his home in Florida. The documents are said to be related to the 2022 presidential election, in which Trump supporters attacked the White House.
"Such an attack can only happen in fragile, third world countries. Sadly, America has now become one of those countries, corrupt on an unprecedented level. They also broke into my safe," Trump said.
The former president's son, Eric Trump, told Fox News that the FBI's search was related to an investigation into the handling of the US National Archives.
