In this video, we’re going to dive deep into new developments coming from the unannounced FBI raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home which includes a secret grand jury subpoena from June, and how he is responding to the revelations.
After the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Monday, everyone has had many questions regarding all aspects of the disgraceful search. Now, new information, confirmed by Donald Trump himself, is arguably most shocking of all.
According to Just the News, He secretly received a grand jury subpoena for classified National Archives documents two months before the FBI raided his Florida home. According to a half dozen people familiar with the incident, Donald Trump voluntarily turned over responsive evidence, surrendered security surveillance footage and let federal agents and a senior Justice Department lawyer tour his private storage locker.
In spite of the cooperation being largely arranged by his lawyers, Trump surprised a prosecutor from the Department of Justice’s National Security Division and three FBI agents on June 3 when they arrived at his Mar-a-Lago compound. Just the News spoke to sources who, speaking on condition of anonymity because the visit was covered by grand jury secrecy, welcomed them when they arrived to pick up a few documents compliant with the subpoena.
Regardless of whether the subpoena concerned a photo of a foreign leader, correspondence or mementos from his presidency, all remaining documents in Trump’s possession would have to be turned over.
According to officials, Secret Service agents assisted with the visit as well.
According to eyewitnesses, Trump signaled his full cooperation by telling the agents and prosecutor, “Look, whatever you need, let us know.”. After being surprised by the president’s invitation, the federal team asked for an immediate favor: to view the storage locker at the compound where the president’s clothes, shoes, documents, and mementos from his presidency were stored.
The president’s lawyers obeyed Trump’s instructions and allowed the FBI to conduct the search before departing cordially. In a letter sent five days later, DOJ officials asked Trump’s attorneys to use a more secure lock on the storage locker. To comply, the Secret Service installed a more robust security lock.
According to sources, the Trump Organization, which owns Mar-a-Lago, received a request for surveillance footage covering the locker and provided the footage to federal authorities.
1 On Wednesday, Trump confirmed the reporting, writing on TRUTH, “In early June, the DOJ and FBI asked my legal representatives to put an extra lock on the door leading to the place where boxes were stored in Mar-a-Lago – We agreed. They were shown the secured area, and the boxes themselves. Then on Monday, without notification or warning, an army of agents broke into Mar-a-Lago, went to the same storage area, and ripped open the lock that they had asked to be installed. A surprise attack, POLITICS, and all the while our Country is going to HELL!”
And, on FOX News’ Sean Hannity program, Trump attorney Lindsey Halligan also discussed the new development regarding the June event.
This newest revelation raises two questions. One – Exactly how “necessary” was the full-on undisclosed raid that happened Monday? And two – did the judge who signed off on the Monday raid warrant know of the previous cooperation? We deserve answers fast.
