Donald Trump has issued a statement as the US Department of Justice confirmed it approved the FBI raids of the former US president’s Mar-a-Lago estate. The US Department of Justice confirmed it signed off on the raids of Mr Trump’s home. The FBI has been criticised over the raids with claims they were politically motivated. The head of the US Justice Department says the raids were justified and he authorised the search. Mr Trump countered that his attorneys were cooperating with the government and said the raid was over the top. ‘”My attorneys and representatives were cooperating fully, and very good relationships had been established. The government could have had whatever they wanted, if we had it,” Mr Trump’s statement read. “Then, out of nowhere and with no warning, Mar-a-Lago was raided at 6:30 in the morning, by VERY large numbers of agents, and even ‘safecrackers.’ They got way ahead of themselves. Crazy!'”

Good reporting, detailed and fair. As a US resident apparently I have to go out of country for decent news.
