(DailyWire) Eric Trump, son of former President Donald Trump, claimed on Tuesday that the dozens of FBI agents who raided his father’s Florida home refused to give their lawyer a copy of the search warrant, instead allegedly forcing the lawyer to take a look at the warrant from about 10 feet away.
Trump’s Florida residence at Mar-a-Lago was raided by the feds on Monday morning — though news broke about the incident in the evening. Agents reportedly went into numerous offices, checked safes, and took boxes of documents.
“There’s 30 agents there,” Eric told the Daily Mail. “They told our lawyer (Christina Bobb) … you have to leave the property right now. Turn off all security cameras.”
“They would not give her the search warrant,” the businessman alleged. “So they showed it to her from about 10 feet away. They would not give her a copy of the search warrant.”
Eric seemed to question to the Daily Mail if the feds indeed had a valid search warrant.
“When I arrived and kind of announced myself as the legal representation for President Trump, I asked to see a copy of the warrant,” she recalled.
“Initially they refused and said, ‘You know, we don’t have to show it to you,’” Bobb claimed. “And there was a little bit of an exchange about whether it was appropriate to withhold the warrant when you’re searching the residence of the former president, who’s likely to be the Republican nominee in the next election, though they conceded and let me see it.”
It’s unclear if Bobb is currently in possession of a copy of the warrant.
“It was very, I would say, thin,” she added. “And as you can tell from public records, the affidavit, the supporting documentation of what the probable cause was to obtain the warrant has been sealed.”
