F.B.I. Raids Trump Property in Ongoing Investigation

F.B.I. Raids Trump Property in Ongoing Investigation


Donald Trump confirmed that on Monday morning the F.B.I executed a house search warrant at his property in Palm Beach, Florida. This event is a dramatic escalation of ongoing investigations against the former president. 


The current development can be linked to previous accusations of stolen official documents. In February the US National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) retrieved classified documents from Mr. Trump’s possession. 


Another impeachment procedure is linked to the former president in connection with the January 6 attacks on the US capitol. There are several allegations which suggest that the events spiralled out of control that day as a result of the handiwork of Mr. Trump. The decision on criminalization is yet to be made by the justice department. 


Furthermore, reaching back to his presidency, there are accusations about the potential wire fraud committed by Trump when raising money for certain causes. “If it can be shown that Trump or others sent an email asking for money for one purpose, and then used it for another, that could constitute fraud, regardless of whether it can be proved that they knew the election had not been stolen,” former US attorney Barb McQuade said.


Election tampering in Georgia was also linked to Trump after the release of an audio in which he urges the Georgia secretary of state to reexamine the outcome and find 11,780 votes in his favour. In addition, during the phone call which was made public by the Washington Post, Trump warns the officials that they cannot publicise ‘false’ results of the elections because that is a “criminal offence” and the “people of Georgia are angry”. 


In November 2019, Trump was also charged with rape defemation lawsuit by E. Jean Carroll. The author claims that she was harassed by the former president in the 90s and she launched the case against him when he was still in office. The newest developments were set in the past days, the trial is to start on the 6 of February, as reported by The Guardian.  


In the most recent development in the case, when Mr. Trump was questioned by the New York attorney general, Letitia James, he turned to his rights under the Fifth Amendment, as reported by the New York Times. As invoking these rights indicates that the incriminated has something to hide, it can be used against him at a possible future trial.
