Former President Donald Trump confirmed to CNN that the FBI executed a search warrant on Monday at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Trump released a statement suggesting he is the most persecuted President of all time.

Via CNN:

Trump declined to say why the FBI agents were at Mar-a-Lago, but the former President said the raid was unannounced and "they even broke into my safe."

"My beautiful home, Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents," he said in a statement.

In his statement, Trump brought up Hillary Clinton in his factually incorrect statement because, of course, he did.

"Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete and acid wash 33,000 E-mails AFTER they were subpoenaed by Congress. Absolutely nothing has happened to hold her accountable," Trump said in a statement after the raid.

Well, there's this:

Now, to obtain a search warrant, probable cause must be proven, so there must be evidence of wrongdoing on the one-term President's part. The raid went on for several hours.
