Lindsey Halligan, attorney for former President Donald Trump, explained what she believes happened Monday after the FBI raided the 45th President’s Mar-a-Lago residence.

LINDSEY HALIGAN: So I arrived around 11:00 am and there were about 30-40 FBI agents that I saw, either wearing suits or the rest wearing cargo pants, masks and gloves. And they basically had free access to the property. They refused to speak to me. They refused to let me in. All I knew was that they were searching areas one, two and three which I understood to be the former president’s room, his office, and a storage room. And other than that, we weren’t allowed to talk to them or enter at all.

VULNERABLE HOUSE DEMOCRATS ARE LARGELY SILENT AFTER FBI RAID OF TRUMP’S MAR-A-LAGO ESTATE

That’s the thing. They had free access to the property. They looked God knows what in there and did God knows what in there. We have no idea. What the FBI did was appalling manifestation of abuse of power. All the requested documents have been submitted beforehand. President Trump and his team thoroughly reviewed every document at Mar-a-Lago and gave the government what they asked for. If they needed other documents, they could have just asked. And the the warrant was obtained under seal, so they tried to get away with covering up this overrun by getting a warrant under seal. Nobody knew.

They knew that President Trump was in Bedminster and haven’t been to Mar-a-Lago for some time. They thought they could sneak around, snoop around without the presence of lawyers and in case they came out with nothing, so that no one would know they had passed that degree. This is unprecedented in the history of the United States. The government seems out of control. It is plagued by manipulation, corruption, greed and fraud.
