Former President Donald Trump has repeatedly condemned the raid that FBI agents carried out at his Mar-a-Lago estate last month.
It was a subject that Trump brought up again at a massive rally in Pennsylvania over the weekend, and he went into detail about what happened, including revealing that the FBI searched through his youngest son, Barron Trump’s, bedroom.
According to BizPac Review, Trump was at the event to campaign on behalf of Republican candidates Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano when he slammed “the shameful raid and break-in of my home, Mar-a-Lago.”
While a heavily redacted affidavit references classified documents that Trump is alleged to have improperly stored at his home, the former president said the real reason has to do with the 2024 election.
Trump asserted that “a highly political magistrate” had signed off on a search warrant because he is “absolutely destroying” President Joe Biden “and everyone else in the polls.”
“Can you believe it?”
“They rifled through the first lady’s closet drawers and everything else, and even did a deep and ugly search of the room of my 16-year-old son, leaving everything they touched in far different conditions than it was when they started. Can you believe it?” Trump asked.

He also lashed out at the FBI and the Justice Department, saying the agencies “have become vicious monsters, controlled by radical left scoundrels, lawyers, and the media who tell them what to do and when to do it.”
“They’re trying to silence me and, more importantly, they’re trying to silence you. But we will not be silenced, right? We will never stop speaking the truth,” Trump promised.
Special master approved
The Trump legal team’s request to have a special master review the seized documents was approved by a federal judge on Monday.
The judge’s appointment of a Special Master to review the Mar-a-Lago materials is a major vote of “no confidence” in the FBI’s and the Biden DOJ’s ability to treat those materials fairly and impartially. Her ruling is also a rebuke to the Deep State worshippers in the media

“The Court hereby authorizes the appointment of a special master to review the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney-client and/or executive privilege,” her order read.
