Federal authorities have searched Donald Trump’s home in Florida, with the former president releasing a statement saying his Mar-a-Lago residence was “raided” by the FBI.
Trump confirmed that FBI agents were at Mar-a-Lago and said “they even broke into my safe.”
“My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” he said in a statement Monday evening.
The former President was not in Florida at the time that the search warrant was executed.
The search began early Monday morning and law enforcement personnel appeared to be focused on the area of the club where Trump’s offices and personal quarters are, according to a person familiar with the matter.
The Justice Department declined to comment to CNN, as did the White House. A White House official said it was not notified about the search.
