    Trump accused the FBI of “stealing” his passport during the search. Now she has him again. The passports were not clearly visible on the receipt of the confiscated goods.

    The FBI has returned passports seized during a search of former US President Donald Trump’s home in Florida. Trump wrote this on the online network Truth Social, which he co-founded.



    At the same time, he again criticized the discovery of his Mar-a-Lago property. FBI agents took what they saw with them, “Like a common criminal. This shouldn’t happen in America!”

    According to media reports, the FBI has returned the confiscated passports of Trump. It was reported by broadcasters NBC and CBS, citing employees of the Justice Department and law enforcement agencies.

    Federal police seized passports last week in connection with a search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

    Trump accuses FBI of “stealing” passports

    Trump accused the FBI of “stealing” his passport during the raid. “Wow! During the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three passports (one of them expired) and everything else,” Trump wrote on the online network Truth Social.

    According to CBS, a team of investigators examined the confiscated material and searched the passports for the important and irrelevant. The broadcaster reported that Trump was informed before his social media post on Monday that the passports had been made and were being returned.

    The FBI said Monday that it will “follow court-ordered search and seizure procedures” when executing search warrants and return items that do not need to be kept for law enforcement purposes.

    A Florida court on Friday issued a receipt and a search warrant for the confiscated items at the request of US Attorney General Merrick Garland. The list of confiscated items includes documents and several boxes. Passports were clearly not listed there.

    The FBI found secret documents from Trump’s house. The basis of the operation was the suspicion that Trump may have violated the Espionage Act and other laws, as the search warrant showed.
