FBI conducts search at Trump’s estate


The Federal Bureau of Investigat­ion searched Donald Trump’s Mara-Lago estate as part of an investigat­ion into whether he took classified records from the White House to his Florida residence, people familiar with the matter said on Monday, a move that represents a dramatic and unpreceden­ted escalation of law enforcemen­t scrutiny of the former president. Trump, disclosing the search in a lengthy statement, asserted that agents had opened up a safe at his home and described their work as an “unannounce­d raid” that he likened to “prosecutor­ial misconduct”. The search intensifie­s the monthslong probe into how classified documents ended up in more than a dozen boxes located at Mar-a-Lago earlier this year.
