Trump says what the FBI did was “a definite NO, NO.”
Former President Donald Trump unloaded on the FBI Wednesday morning for seizing private tax information and his personal medical records —records that go back more than 40 years —during the Mar-a-Lago raid.
Trump shredded the feds on TRUTH Social.
“Not only did the FBI steal my Passports in the FBI Raid and Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago, but it has just been learned through court filings that they also improperly took my complete and highly confidential medical file and history, with all the bells and whistles (at least they’ll see that I’m very healthy, an absolutely perfect physical specimen!), plus personal Tax Records (Illegal to take), and lawyer/client/privileged information, a definite NO, NO,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social. “Days of the Soviet Union!”
Trump attorney Chris Kise also blasted the Justice Department for numerous leaks about their ongoing investigation to the media. Kise shared a statement with Fox News.
“Unfortunately, even after the Court noted specifically in its Order that President Trump‘faces an unquantifiable potential harm by way of improper disclosure of sensitive information to the public’ and asked counsel for the United States directly about leaks, those leaks continue with no respect for the process nor any regard for the real truth,” Kise said.
“This does not serve well the interests of justice,” he continued. “Moreover, the damage to public confidence in the integrity of the system simply cannot be underestimated. The responsible course of action here would be for someone – anyone – in the Government to exercise leadership and control. The Court has provided a sensible path forward which does not include the selective leak of unverifiable and misleading information. There is no reason to deviate from that path if the goal is, as it should be, to find a rational solution to document storage issues which have needlessly spiraled out of control.”
