The U.S. federal government and FBI appears to be fully out of control.
President Donald Trump confirms the FBI is currently raiding his home in Florida.
President Trump issued an alarming warning that his Mar-A-Lago home in Florida is “under siege” by a “large group” of FBI agents.
It’s unclear why the FBI is raiding the residence as they FBI has refused to respond to requests for information by Fox News and various other major media outlets.
“Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before,” Trump said in a statement.
“After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” he continued.
“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,” Trump added.
The FBI has not responded to multiple requests for comment.
Here’s Trump statement:

“My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” he said in a statement.
Trump was not in Florida at the time of the raid.
