The Tycoon attacks the New York prosecutor: "Racist" and adds "We hope that the FBI has not planted evidence" (ANSA)



"The search was authorized by a judge, the warrant was handed over to Donald Trump's lawyer who was present" in Mar-a-Lago.

"I personally approved the search of the former president's residence."

Thus the

US Minister of Justice, Merrick Garland

, in a statement to the press.

And then he adds "we did not make any official statements before the search, confirmed by the former president as he was entitled to" and "agents and officials of the Justice Department were unjustly attacked".

Donald Trump

has left the New York Attorney's Office after refusing to answer questions from Attorney Letitia James as part of an investigation into his properties.

The former president did not answer the questions of the many journalists waiting for him outside but greeted the crowd on the street from the window of his car.

The former president had made it known in a note that he would not answer the questions "based on the rights that are granted to every citizen by the American Constitution" and then lashed out against the prosecutor.

"I did nothing wrong - he declared - and that is why after five years of investigation the federal, state and local governments, together with the Fake News, have not found anything", says Trump, according to whom James has been by waging a campaign against him, his family and his society.

"He created a political platform and made a career out of attacking me and my company," adds Trump, speaking of a "politically motivated witch hunt".

And he appeals to the Fifth Amendment which allows you not to testify against yourself, with the New York attorney.

"I was once asked: 'if you are innocent why invoke the Fifth Amendment?'

Now I know the answer. Regarding, these were wiped out by the FBI raid two days before the deposition. I have no other choice because the current administration and many prosecutors in this country have lost their moral and ethical decency, "he concluded.

The director of the FBI, Christopher Wray

, said he was concerned about the threats received by supporters of Donald Trump following the search by his agents of the former president's residence in Florida.

"It's not something I can talk about," he said in Omaha, Nebraska, about the feds blitz, ABC News reported.

However, he added, "the threats to law enforcement are worrying".

Wray, like the secretary of justice, Merrick Garland, and the agents who carried out the search are targeted by criticism from Republicans and by threats, in some cases of death, on social networks of Trump supporters.

The tycoon is under investigation for his companies, because he may have inflated the values ​​of his assets to obtain better financial conditions.

"In New York City tonight. Tomorrow I will see the racist attorney general of New York, for the continuation of the largest witch hunt in US history," the former president had commented on his Truth Social last night.

"My big company, and myself, are being attacked from all sides. Banana Republic!" 

A potential crucial turning point for the judicial events that will concern Trump, which comes at a particularly delicate moment for the tycoon and former president of the United States a few days after the search by the FBI in his residence in Mar-a-Lago in search of documents Trump may have been able to take with him after leaving the White House.    

The former president has already in the past consented to testify but for this specific instance he has repeatedly shown reluctance, underlines the New York Times, to the point of being able to postpone until now the deposition considered fundamental for the outcome of the investigations on patrimonial history of the tycoon and his family, and specifically of the family company, the well-known Trump Organization.

The FBI banned Donald Trump's staff and lawyers from approaching and witnessing the "raid on Mar-Lago. Everyone was asked to leave the property," the agents "wanted to be alone with no witness to see what they were doing. , taking or, hopefully not, placing evidence ".

Donald Trump says so.

"Why did they insist on having no one? There has never been a raid for Obama or Clinton despite the big disputes they had," he adds.

And among Trump's supporters and allies the hypothesis of a spy in Mar-a-Lago is making its way.

And here comes the belief that in the house of the former president there is a 'traitorous mole' who would have reported information to the FBI and who, therefore, would be behind the blitz of federal agents.

The mole, they argue, would have passed on to the FBI information and evidence on what really was in Mar-a-Lago.
