Trump says FBI agents raided wife Melania’s closet, left it a ‘mess’

President Donald Trump said that FBI agents who raided his Palm Beach, Florida home on Monday went through his wife Melania’s closet and left it a “mess.”

The disturbing detail raises more questions about the unprecedented search, which many have decried as a draconian show of force against President Biden’s top political rival.

Trump says FBI raided Melania’s closet

Trump’s lawyers were allegedly told to wait outside as agents scanned Trump’s property for nine hours, the New York Post reported. The conservative tabloid was first to report that the agents rifled through Melania Trump’s wardrobe.

“….Just learned that agents went through the First Lady’s closets and rummaged through her clothing and personal items. Surprisingly, left area in a relative mess. Wow!” Trump posted on his Truth Social account.

Department of Justice lawyers boasted that they had access to “everything” and told Trump’s lawyers to turn off security cameras, but they refused, Trump’s legal team said.

Another hoax?

There was another bizarre twist Thursday evening when a vague report in the Washington Post emerged claiming that agents were searching for “documents relating to nuclear weapons.” The left pounced on the report, which came with no detail and was based on the accounts of anonymous sources.

The report raised immediate questions as to why the feds would wait so long to recover such sensitive materials. Trump trashed the report as yet another hoax by anti-Trump partisans in the media and questioned whether evidence was “planted” during the raid.

“Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-a-Lago with our lawyer’s, or others, present. Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close – said ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT.’ Planting information anyone? Reminds me of a Christofer Steele Dossier!”

Angry Garland touts ‘rule of law’

The Washington Post leak came hours after attorney general Merrick Garland said the DOJ “will speak through its court filings and its work” during a brief public appearance, where he angrily defended the DOJ and FBI against accusations of political persecution.

“Upholding the rule of law means applying the law evenly, without fear or favor. Under my watch, that is precisely what the Justice Department is doing,” Garland said.

Garland also confirmed that he approved the raid and that the feds motioned to unseal the search warrant.

The warrant was released Friday, along with a property receipt, after Trump had called for the documents to be made public without delay. Trump says that all records seized had been declassified and that his lawyers were cooperating with the governmentefore the unannounced raid.
