Trump’s attorney said the former president watched the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago from New York.
Christina Bobb said the property’s security cameras broadcast a live feed from the Florida home.
Bobb complained earlier this week about not being able to observe the FBI search.
Former President Donald Trump’s attorney said Trump watched from New York as the FBI searched his house in Mar-a-Lago in Florida on Monday.
Christina Bobb, one of Trump’s attorneys, made this comment during an appearance on thursday on the right-wing media network Real America’s Voice. Bobb told host Gina Loudon that contrary to rumors that the security cameras had been turned off, the property’s security feeds were on for most of the FBI search.
“I think the people of New York, President Trump and his family, probably had a better view than I did. Because they had CCTV, they were able to watch,” Bobb said.
She added that she had not witnessed the raid because she was busy answering investigators’ questions, but said the Trump family had seen “everything.”
“So they actually have a better idea of what went on inside,” Bobb said.
He added that the cameras were only turned off for a “very short period of time” while officers were talking to attorneys about whether they were on.
Bob complained this week for not having been authorized to observe the registry. She too claimed without justification that the FBI might be looking to “make things up” about what they found at Mar-a-Lago.
“We’ll see what they come up with. If they did, it’ll be interesting, especially since they kept me from seeing what they did,” Bobb said.
The FBI has not given a reason why the search of Trump’s former residence was carried out, although this may come to light soon if DOJ’s motion to release court records related to the raid is approved.
Numerous media outlets along with Trump’s son, Eric, have suggested the search was for material that Trump may have brought to Mar-a-Lago from the White House. the washington post also reported that the The FBI had been looking for classified documents about nuclear weapons.
In February, the National Archives recovered 15 boxes of documents of the residence of the former president in Florida. Also requested that the Department of Justice investigate whether Trump had broken the law by bringing official documents from the White House to Mar-a-Lago.
