The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is conducting a search of the home of former US President Donald Trump. This is stated in a statement by Trump, published on the page of his associates on Twitter (the social network was blocked at the request of the prosecutor's office).
“True dark times have come for our nation, as my beautiful house in the residence Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege by the FBI, who are searching it, & mdash; Trump said.
The New York Times, citing sources familiar with the situation, writes that the FBI is searching Trump's house because of the documents that the former president took with him after he left the White House. According to the newspaper, the documents may contain classified information.
According to the publication, the US National Archives requested the return of 15 boxes of documents “for many months” and contacted the FBI because of the likely threat of destruction of these documents. “Mr. Trump is notorious for destroying official papers intended to be kept in government archives during his presidency,” newspaper writes. In February, an article about this appeared in The Washington Post.
According to Trump, no one notified him of the search. Trump called the search itself “optional.” Trump accused the FBI of violating procedures, and the “radical left Democrats” (Democratic Party of the USA) in using the law enforcement system as a weapon. According to Trump, the Democrats “fucking don't want him running in the 2024 presidential election.”
The previous US presidential election took place in November 2020. According to the results of the electoral vote, Trump scored 232, his opponent Joe Biden— 306 votes. Trump then declared “deceiving the American public” and “shame” for the country. According to the ex-president, “millions and millions of people” voted for him, but “a pathetic group of people is trying to disenfranchise them.” Biden insisted that the vote was fair.

On January 6, 2021, Trump supporters gathered for a rally in Washington, while the House of Representatives was about to approve the election results. Protesters seized the Capitol, and tear gas and stun grenades were used against them. Five people were killed in the clashes. Biden accused Trump of inciting violence.
In early June, open hearings began in the United States in the case of the storming of the Capitol. The Special Committee of the Congress to investigate these events was formed for the most part from Democrats— members of the House of Representatives and began its work in July last year. His intention was to prove that Trump's actions had a direct impact on the events of January 6th. Evidence was presented at the hearing that Trump first tried to falsify the results of the elections, and then achieve the cancellation of the recognition of their results.
The former president himself believes that a special committee of Congress intends to prevent his participation in the next presidential election. The committee's final report is to be published in September of this year, less than a month before the midterm congressional elections.
