The "shockingly forceful" FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago was said to have caused anxiety for "most Americans" in a lawsuit that was filed by former President Donald Trump.

"FBI Raid"

On August 8, officers from the FBI investigated the home that Trump owns in Florida, and they found sensitive materials there. According to The New York Times, federal investigators discovered sensitive and official White House data in the basement of Mar-a-Lago as well as in a closet in one of the offices.

The legal team representing Donald Trump has initiated legal action in the hopes of persuading a judge to prevent the Department of Justice from combing through the files that were confiscated.

The complaint included specifics on the raid and said that what took place on August 8 was a "shockingly forceful approach" and that "no knowledge of the grief that it would cause most Americans" was present. Additionally, the lawsuit argued that the defendants were negligent.

His legal team claimed in the 27-page lawsuit that the search was conducted for political reasons and identified Trump as "the clear frontrunner in the 2024 Republican Presidential Primary and in the 2024 General Election, should he decide to run."

The lawsuit was filed in response to the fact that the search was conducted.

The information included in the FBI's affidavit for the search warrant was described by Federal Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart as being "credible."

However, the judge has not yet decided how much of the document will be made available to the general public.
