The FBI executed a search warrant at former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida yesterday, Trump said in a statement

In the statement put out by his team, Trump said his resort home was “under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” adding that they “even broke into [his] safe.”

At this time, the reason for the search is unknown. The Justice Department is currently examining Trump’s role in efforts to overturn the 2020 election and, earlier this year, started investigating potential mishandling of government secrets after top secret government documents were found at Mar-a-Lago. A source told NBC News the raid is related to those documents.

Both the FBI and DOJ have declined to comment.
