FBI Searches Mar-a-Lago Resort in Palm Beach, Florida
The FBI executed a search warrant at Former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Resort in Palm Beach Florida yesterday. Sources familiar with the investigation said the search was carried out as part of an investigation into the handling of presidential documents, including classified documents that might have been brought there. Trump himself confirmed the news, saying agents even ‘broke into his safe’ while he was at Trump Tower in New York at the time of the search, which began early yesterday morning. Law enforcement personnel appeared to be focused on the area of the club where Trump’s offices and personal quarters are. The White House and President Biden were unaware of the search until after it was reported.
Following the search at Mar-a-Lago, South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham responded to the news on social media. In a series of Tweets yesterday, Graham called the investigation ‘problematic’ this close to an election cycle and said that “no one is above the law and the law must be above politics.”
