PALM BEACH, Florida (LifeSiteNews) – Former President of the United States Donald Trump in a statement this evening said his Florida home has been raided by the FBI and is “under siege.”
In his statement, Trump said that his Florida home, located in Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, is “currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.”
“These are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump wrote.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”
Trump noted that he has been “working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies,” adding that the “unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate.”
“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections,” wrote Trump.
Reaction to the news came swiftly from Trump’s family.
“We truly live in a third world country,” tweeted Trump’s son Eric.
Trump’s eldest son and child, Donald Trump, Jr., blasted President Joe Biden’s “out of control DOJ” as “ripping this country apart with how they’re openly targeting their political enemies.”
“This is what you see happen in 3rd World Banana Republics,” tweeted Trump Jr.

The former president wrote that “[s]uch an assault could only take place “in broken, Third-World Countries.”
“Sadly, America has now become one of those Countries, corrupt at a level not seen before. They even broke into my safe! What is the difference between this and Watergate, where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee? Here, in reverse, Democrats broke into the home of the 45th President of the United States,” wrote Trump.
Trump then said that he has been facing “political persecution” for years, “with the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more, it just never ends. It is political targeting at the highest level!”
“Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress,” the former president recalled.
“Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable. She even took antique furniture, and other items from the White House.”
As it stands now, Trump, along with many who worked in his administration, have been under a continued investigation by the U.S. House January 6 Committee.
The Conservative Treehouse recently wrote about the committee, “We all know why they want Donald Trump removed as a threat to their echo-chambered system of corruption and governmental graft. The entire D.C. system, including the Stasi Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI state police is based on financial influence, power, greed, and corrupt sales of offices.”
As for Trump, he said in his statement that he stood “up to America’s bureaucratic corruption” and “restored power to the people, and truly delivered for our Country, like we have never seen before.”
“The establishment hated it. Now, as they watch my endorsed candidates win big victories, and see my dominance in all polls, they are trying to stop me, and the Republican Party, once more. The lawlessness, political persecution, and Witch Hunt must be exposed and stopped,” concluded Trump. “I will continue to fight for the Great American People!”

Using government power to persecute political opponents is something we have seen many times from 3rd world Marxist dictatorships
But never before in America
