Monday, Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and resort was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigations in an unprecedented move from President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice.
Conservatives and Democrats have spoken out against the raid, calling it a partisan weaponization of the United States Justice Department.
Updates and statements have poured in since the raid, and one of the former President’s sons has now come forward and publicly stated that Mar-a-Lago’s surveillance cameras caught the FBI behaving improperly.
At first, it was thought that Trump’s team turned off the resort’s cameras in compliance with the Bureau’s order to turn them off during the search.
However, Eric Trump claims that the cameras were kept on – and the FBI was caught red-handed going into areas they shouldn’t. He also suggested that Trump’s legal team was not given a copy of the warrant.
Eric Trump said that the security cameras at Mar-a-Lago caught FBI agents behaving improperly during Monday’s raid, alleging that investigators were accessing parts of former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence that they “shouldn’t have been.”
In an interview with DailyMail.com, Eric Trump said that because staff refused to turn off the surveillance cameras at the request of the FBI, the Mar-a-Lago cameras captured agents raiding areas that they weren’t authorized to.
“There’s 30 agents there,” he recalled on Wednesday. “They told our lawyer…’You have to leave the property right now. Turn off all security cameras.’”
Eric Trump said that the FBI refused to give Trump’s lawyer, Christina Bobb, a copy of the search warrant but “showed it to her from about 10 feet away,” DailyMail.com reported. He also said he would be “thrilled” to find out if there was a valid reason for the search.
