Trump claims FBI searched Melania’s closets while searching for Mar-A-Lago

Instead of saying if he wanted the American people to see the warrant that allowed the FBI to search his Florida residence, Trump took to his Truth Social site and offered a dubious claim that the agents also focused on the wardrobe of his wife, Melania:

″….I have just learned that officers searched the First Lady’s closets and searched her clothes and personal effects. Surprisingly, the area left in a relative mess. Wow!”

Trump has provided no proof of his claim, nor has his wife.

Instead, it seemed like he was trying to continue the conspiracy theory narrative that if FBI research turned up incriminating evidence at his Florida compound, it was planted there by the FBI itself.

Attorneys general generally do not make search warrants public, although the targets of those warrants are free to do so.

However, Garland offered to make the warrant public on Thursday in an effort to thwart Trump’s attempts to claim the warrant was politically motivated.

The news motivated Twitter users to new heights of snark.

var _fbPartnerID = null; if (_fbPartnerID !== null) { fbq('init', _fbPartnerID + ''); fbq('track', "PageView"); }

(function () { 'use strict'; document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () { document.body.addEventListener('click', function(event) { fbq('track', "Click"); }); }); })();
