(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Donald Trump announced that he will file a lawsuit against the FBI’s “illegal search” of his home in Mar-a-Lago, according to Breitbart. “A major motion pertaining to the Fourth Amendment will soon be filed concerning the illegal Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago, right before the ever important Mid-Term Elections,” Trump posted on Truth Social.
The former president alleged that the FBI raid was a partisan attack against him, calling it a witch hunt that violated his rights and the rights of all Americans. The lawsuit, using the Fourth Amendment as its basis, is part of an ongoing feud between the president and the Justice Department.
The FBI raided the president’s home at the approval of Attorney General Merrick Garland who claimed, when speaking about the raid on Trump, that “no one is above the law.” The FBI was executing a warrant that alleged Trump possessed classified documents in his home, in violation of the Presidential Records Act of 1978 which states that Congress reserves the right to preserve official documents of the president.
Trump’s lawyers allege that the FBI forcefully entered the home with backpacks and demanded that the cameras be turned off, as they proceeded to search for nine and a half hours. The footage of the raid is going to be released “at the right time” according to Trump’s son, Eric Trump.
The former president also claimed that the FBI took his passports, whereas the FBI denied the accusations. However, according to an email sent by a senior DOJ official released by Trump’s former communications director, they admit that they “seized three passports belonging to President Trump.”
“Never in our Country’s history has there been a time where law enforcement has been so viciously and violently involved in the life and times of politics in our Nation,” Trump said.
A recent Rasmussen poll shows that 53% of likely voters agree with the statement that “there is a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI that are using the FBI as Joe Biden’s personal Gestapo.” According to a report by Real Clear Investigations, the FBI division that is overseeing the documents taken by the FBI during the raid on Trump is the same division under investigation by Special Counsel John Durham for the Russia hoax that resulted in the first impeachment of the former president.
