Former President Donald Trump announced he would file an unlawful Fourth Amendment search and seizure request regarding the FBI’s “unlawful” raid on Mar-a-Lago in a post Friday on TRUTH Social.
“A major Fourth Amendment petition will soon be filed regarding the unlawful burglary of my home, Mar-a-Lago, just before the important midterm elections,” Trump said.
The former president said the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago violated his rights, “and the rights of all Americans”, and added that it was part of an ongoing witch hunt against him. Trump added:
My rights, and the rights of all Americans, have been violated on a level rarely seen before in our country. Remember, they even spied on my campaign. The biggest witch hunt in US history has been going on for six years, with no consequences for the crooks. It must not be allowed to continue!
Trump’s upcoming Fourth Amendment motion is the latest development in the public spat between him and the FBI following the Mar-a-Lago raid earlier this month.
Trump plans to release footage of the raid, according to his son Eric Trump, who Told Sean Hannity that the footage would be released “at the right time”.

The former president also revealed that the FBI ‘stole’ his passports during the raid. Although President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) disputed Trump’s accusations, they later confirmed that FBI agents “seized three passports belonging to President Trump,” according to an email sent by a senior DOJ official released by former Trump communications director.
In the aftermath of the raid, more Americans than ever believe Biden is using the FBI as his “personal Gestapo.” A Rasmussen poll found that 53% of Americans agree with Roger Stone’s assessment that there is “a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI who use the FBI…like Joe Biden’s personal Gestapo” .
Trump also slammed the FBI for being “viciously and violently involved in the life and times of politics in our nation” in posts on his TRUTH Social platform on Friday.
“Never in the history of our country has there been a time when law enforcement has been so viciously and viciously involved in the life and times of our nation’s politics,” said Trump.
“Even in light of the fact that they violated Russia, Russia, Russian scam, impeachment hoax #1, impeachment hoax #2, Mueller witch hunt, lied to several times before Congress and, on several occasions, disseminated fraudulent information before the FISA. Court, they continue. They have no shame, “Trump continued. “They are destroying our country!
