The former president is in bad weather at the moment. On Monday, his Florida home was searched by the FBI because they believed he had classified material there. On Wednesday, he will be questioned by the Attorney General in New York about another case.
Trump is the subject of a lengthy civil investigation led by the office of Attorney General Letitia James.
The case concerns the Trump Organization, which has been accused of misreporting the value of some of Trump’s occupied properties, such as golf courses and skyscrapers. In addition, the organization allegedly misled lenders and tax authorities.
Calling the NY Attorney General a racist
– In New York tonight. Meet the racist New York attorney general who was allowed to continue the biggest witch hunt in US history, Trump wrote on his own website, Social Truth.
– My company and I were attacked from all sides. Banana Republic!, he added.
Attorney James has been investigating the Trump Organization since March 2019. Earlier this year, he concluded that the company’s business practices were deceptive and flagged as fraud.
The questioning of Trump came shortly after the New York attorney general questioned Trump’s two children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. Questions with Trump on Wednesday are one of the final steps in the investigation, writes New York Time.
Collect money from supporters
Trump claimed Monday’s FBI search was politically motivated and called the move another attack by the radical left on Democrats. He believes that the search will come because they want him not to run for president in 2024.
– They tried to stop the Republicans and me once again. Lawlessness, political persecution, and the witch hunt must be exposed and stopped, Trump wrote in emails and text messages to his supporters on Tuesday, according to Reuters.
The former president sought political donations as a result of an FBI search.
Republican colleagues, including Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, also said they believed the search was politically motivated and demanded answers from Attorney General Merrick Garland. BBC.

Democrat: – Don’t know anything
Neither Garland nor the FBI have commented on the case, but the White House said Monday that President Joe Biden was not informed of the search beforehand.
Democratic congressional leader Nancy Pelosi said she was briefed on the case through the media.
– To obtain a search warrant, it must be legally justified. “No one is above the law, not even a president or former president of the United States,” he told NBC Tuesday.
