Trump reacted on Truth Social saying that the raid “was done for political purposes just prior to the Midterm Elections (and 2024, of course!).”

Truth Social:

Federal Judge in Florida just took over the Presidential Records Act case, including the unprecedented, unnecessary, and unannounced FBI/DOJ Raid (Break-In!) of my home, Mar-a-Lago. This assault was done for political purposes just prior to the Midterm Elections (and 2024, of course!). It is a disgrace to our now Third World Nation!
