On video: The FBI raided the home of former President Donald Trump in Florida (Reuters)

Former President of the United States Donald Trump said today (Monday) that the FBI raid on his estate was a "fraud" and that it was a witch hunt.

This, in the first interview since the raid with the Fox News network.

Trump denied the claims that he kept classified documents in his home and said that their classification was invalid.

"The country is in a dangerous place," he said.

"There is tremendous anger on the part of the citizens, the public cannot tolerate another scam, like the one we saw a few days ago."



According to him, he and his representatives contacted the Ministry of Justice and offered to assist in the investigation, but he has not yet received an answer.

"If there is something we can help with, we will be happy. The flames must go down. We have never seen a situation where the law enforcement agencies invade the house of a former president like this, and it causes enormous anger among the citizens, an anger that is almost never seen before."

The former president described the moments when FBI agents raided his estate as "a sneak attack".

"Nobody thought something like this could happen," Trump said.

"They broke in and could take whatever they wanted. They ordered everyone to turn off cameras and forbade the people to enter the rooms."

In doing so, Trump implied that federal agents could have hidden or planted evidence at his alleged mansion.

"My people were asked to wait outside. They could take or plant what they wanted inside."

On Friday, the "Politico" website reported that Trump is suspected of violating the Espionage Act, which deals with keeping classified information.

This, after 11 documents classified as "top secret" were found in a raid on his estate in Florida earlier last week.

In addition, the former president is suspected of obstructing an investigation and illegally releasing government documents.



Trump dismissed the suspicions and attacked "What happened to the 33 million pages of documents that were taken to Chicago by President Obama?".

It was also reported that FBI agents were looking for classified documents regarding nuclear weapons.

According to the report, nuclear weapons documents were apparently among the documents the FBI sought at Mar-a-Lago.

However, they did not elaborate on the exact contents and if it is an American or another country's weapon.

FBI agents raided Trump's estate in Florida about a week ago.

This, as part of the investigation into the transfer of presidential and secret documents to the residence in Mar-a-Lago after the end of his term.

Trump, who is expected to try and contest the elections in 2024, attacked the move and compared it to the "Watergate" affair.



"My house is under siege - the extreme Democrats are not interested in me running for president, they will do anything to stop the Republicans," he said.

The former president found out about the raid while staying at his tower in New York.

"They even broke into my safe," Trump said.

According to sources, the FBI executed a search warrant at 9 a.m. local time at the former president's home.

The search focused on the area where the club is located, where Trump's office and private rooms are located, according to a source familiar with the matter.



The Ministry of Justice is conducting two active investigations linked to the former president, one related to the attempt to bias the results of the 2020 presidential elections, and the other to the taking of the secret documents in violation of the law.

This is in addition to a series of other legal problems that Trump is dealing with, including the investigation into the break-in of his supporters into the Capitol on January 6 last year, which is being conducted by Congress.
