Former President Trump suggested that the FBI might have planted evidence as they laid siege to his Mar-a-Lago residence for nine hours on Monday, blocking his team from watching as they pawed through Melania Trump’s wardrobe and reportedly requested security cameras be turned off.
On Wednesday, Trump stated that the FBI prevented his staff, including his lawyers, from the areas where the FBI was seizing items at his home while he was in New York City. He flatly posited that it is entirely possible the federal agents could have “planted” evidence.
“The FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago,” Trump posted on Truth Social Wednesday morning.
“Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, ‘planting,'” he accusingly noted.
"A source close to the former president expressed concern that FBI agents or DOJ lawyers conducting the search could have “planted stuff” because they would not allow Trump’s attorneys inside the 128-room building to observe the operation, which lasted more than nine hours."

Does anyone have any doubt that corrupt Christopher Wray’s rotten FBI would plant evidence on Trump at the drop of a hat?

“Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them, everybody out? Obama and Clinton were never ‘raided,’ despite big disputes!” Trump railed.
The Daily Mail reported, “Those working for the former president who were at his Florida estate during the raid refused to turn off security cameras on the premises despite instructions from federal agents to do so.”
One of Trump’s attorneys, Christina Bobb, told Real America’s Voice on Tuesday that the raid was a “weird flex” and suggested the FBI could have planted evidence as well.
“No, there is no security that something wasn’t planted,” she stated. “I’m not saying that’s what they did.”
“This was a completely unnecessary power flex. It was a weird flex,” Bobb contended. “It’s quite honestly sad to see what they have done to our country.”
Trump attorney Alina Habba told Fox News she was “concerned that they may have planted something. You know, at this point, who knows? I don’t trust the government and that’s a very frightening thing as an American.”

Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene shared Trump’s Truth Social post on Twitter and wrote, “I think there is an extremely high probability that the FBI planted ‘evidence’ against President Trump.”
“Otherwise WHY would they NOT allow his attorneys or anyone watch them while they conducted their unprecedented raid?” Greene asked. “They know the consequences of an empty handed power move.”

According to the New York Post, the attitude of the three DOJ lawyers who accompanied the FBI was described by an eyewitness as “arrogant,” and they repeatedly told Trump staff, “We have full access to everything. We can go everywhere.”
Trump’s attorneys were left out in the heat and humidity on Monday near a parking lot while FBI agents took more than nine hours to go through the estate.
The master bedroom and Melania’s wardrobe were violated by the federal investigators and there was no explanation given for it. Agents reportedly spent hours in Trump’s private office, breaking into his safe and going through his stuff.

The raid follows the former president previously turning over 15 boxes of documents and his attorneys cooperating with the federal government. In June, four DOJ officials went to Mar-a-Lago to speak with Trump and his attorneys about other documents.
A former FBI agent told the Daily Mail that Monday’s raid was likely caused by new information from an unnamed “informant” and a breakdown in cooperation between the agency and the former president.
Notice the crooks and lowlifes at the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago when Trump wasn't there and demanded Trump's lawyers leave the rooms they were searching and all security cameras be shut off?
Now why in the world would they do all this? Planted evidence, anyone?!

Retired FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael Tabman, who was with the agency for 24 years, asserted that a raid of this level of sensitivity would need to be approved by Attorney General Merrick Garland.
“I think somebody gave them information indicating that these documents are there,” Tabman claimed.
“I think there was inside information – call it an informant if you want,” he commented. “I believe either someone told them something or some other information was stumbled upon, which was kind of conclusive in their minds that they had to go now to get that or they’re not getting it.”
