Former adviser Bannon: FBI agents conducted 35 searches of Trump supporters
WASHINGTON, September 9 – RIA Novosti. FBI agents raided the homes of 35 supporters of former US President Donald Trump on Thursday. knowledgeable Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon told journalist Charlie Kirk in an interview posted on Kirk’s Twitter account.
On Thursday, Bannon himself was charged with six counts, including money laundering, criminal conspiracy, and defrauding Trump supporters “to confiscate their property” while raising funds to build a wall on the Mexican border that Trump is trying to counter illegal immigration. . Bannon was later released on bail.
“The FBI conducted 35 calls between senior members of MAGA (Make America Great Again, MAGA) and Trump supporters,” Bannon said. According to him, agents of the special services “broken doors, filled people”, confiscated many items and devices during the searches, and acted “according to Gestapo technology.”
Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property in Florida was raided by the FBI on August 8 as part of an investigation into the misuse of defense information, theft and destruction of documents. US Attorney General Merrick Garland later said he personally authorized a lawsuit for a search warrant.
In response, a number of Republican politicians harshly criticized the intelligence services and Garland. Following a court order, a search warrant and an inventory of the seizures were made public, as a result of which 11 sets of classified documents were found on Trump. The Washington Post wrote that the FBI expected to find documents related to nuclear weapons during its search of the Trump mansion.
The FBI, court-ordered, issued an affidavit that served as the basis for a search warrant from Trump, from the document that followed the bureau’s reliance on information from the national archives regarding material in the politician’s possession. The investigation began after the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) requested the Department of Justice that in January 2022, 15 boxes of documents were received from the Trump office, 14 of which contained material with a specific classification mark. Including 25 top secret documents.
