“They even broke into my safe!” Donald Trump was indignant.
The FBI has not yet confirmed this search.
The Republican has not indicated the reasons for this police operation. It is linked, directly or indirectly, to several ongoing legal cases.
A parliamentary committee is seeking to shed light on the billionaire's role in the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
That day, hundreds of his supporters sowed violence and chaos inside congressional headquarters, delaying certification of Joe Biden's presidential victory.
The Department of Justice is investigating the attack, but has not yet brought charges against the former president.
At the end of July, Justice Minister Merrick Garland had not ruled out the possibility.
“We intend to hold to account whoever is criminally responsible for (their role in) the events around January 6, in any attempt to interfere with the legal transfer of power from one administration to another,” he said.
Donald Trump, still very popular among Republicans, is flirting more and more openly with ec the idea of running in the presidential election of 2024.
