Former President Donald Trump discovered the dirty secret of the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago residence when he visited his Florida home.
“I’ll soon be heading to the scene of the unwarranted, unjust, and illegal Raid and Break-In of my home in Florida, Mar-a-Lago. I’ll be able to see for myself the results of the unnecessary ransacking of rooms and other areas of the house,” the former president said on his Truth Social account.
“It has already been proven that so much has been wrongfully taken, it is not a ‘pretty thing.’ So sad! The 4th Amendment, and much more, has been totally violated, a grave invasion of privacy. I will keep the American public informed on TRUTH!” he said.
After he went back to his home he discovered what they had done.
“Arrived in Florida last night and had a long and detailed chance to check out the scene of yet another government ‘crime,’ the FBI’s Raid and Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago. I guess they don’t think there is a Fourth Amendment anymore, and to them, there isn’t,” the former president said.
“In any event, after what they have done, the place will never be the same. It was ‘ransacked,’ and in far different condition than the way I left it. Many Agents — And they didn’t even take off their shoes in my bedroom. Nice!!!” he said.
This weekend, Trump hit Democrats with a dose of reality that they did not want to hear.
On Saturday he held a Save America rally in Youngstown, Ohio where he gave a dire warning to the Democrats.
“They have no idea of the sleeping giant that they have awoken,” the president said. “The American people will never accept the corruption and the ruination of our beloved country, and that’s what they want to do.”
He said that on Nov. 8, “we are going to vote in record numbers, and we are going to send these left-wing lunatics a message: They cannot cancel, silence, or ignore … all the abuse, all the smears, and all the attacks will not dissuade us. They will only make us stronger, much stronger. Much much stronger.”
He said he is not concerned about what Democrats are doing to attempt to stop him and promised to keep fighting them.
“No matter what our sick and deranged political establishment throw at me, no matter what they do to me, I will endure their torment and oppression, and I will do it very willingly.
“They will never get me to stop fighting for you, the American people. And I will never quit because the fate of our country is at stake,” he said.
He even talked about President Joe Biden’s speech when he had the red backdrop and declared “MAGA Republicans” a threat to democracy.
“That was terrible,” said Trump, “but that’s where they’re coming from. But you know what? We’re strong and we’re smart. We’re smarter than them. We’re stronger than them.”
Democrats “view 75 million Americans as enemies to be canceled and suppressed,” he said. “They want to censor you from the internet, banish you from the public square, get you fired from your jobs, target you for destruction with 87,000 new IRS agents.”
“There’s more enthusiasm right now than there has ever been for the rallies and for everything because you’ve seen what a horrible job they’ve done,” he said.
I’ve watched every Trump speech/rally for the last 6 years, and this closer was the most powerful one he’s ever given.

The special master appointed by a federal judge to examine documents seized by the FBI during a raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last month has formally begun the process.
Former chief federal judge Raymond Dearie, appointed by U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon earlier this month, has directed attorneys for the former president as well as the Justice Department to come to New York City for a “preliminary conference,” Fox News reported.
Lawyers for the two parties are being asked to submit “proposed agenda items” to discuss by Sept. 19, the outlet added.
FBI officials say agents recovered around 100 items marked as ‘classified’ during the raid, though Trump has said he previously declassified everything in his possession before leaving office per his authority as president.
