Trump Says FBI 'Stole' His Passports, Predicts Raid Backlash Will Help GOP at Polls

The FBI seized former President Donald Trump's passports in last week's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which Trump says will ultimately help the Republican Party in November's midterm elections.

"Wow! In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three passports (one expired), along with everything else," Trump wrote in a Truth Social statement Monday. "This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our country. Third world!"

Trump's post came minutes after he predicted the FBI raid of his private residence has boosted Republicans in the midterm primary polls and will ultimately help the GOP retake the majority in the House and Senate this November.

"Republicans could win many additional seats, both in the House & Senate, because of the strong backlash over the raid at Mat-a-Lago," Trump wrote on Truth Social. "Polls are showing that some lost Republican territory over the last number of weeks has been more than made up with the unannounced break in by the FBI, which should never have happened!"

Trump also noted hearing "great simmering anger" among Americans outraged at the potential politicization of the Justice Department and the FBI against the White House's political opposition.

"Just left a large gathering of people and all they could talk about was the complete and total stranglehold that the Radical Left Democrats have over the DOJ & FBI," Trump wrote Sunday on Truth Social. "It shouldn't be that way.

"Nobody goes after BLM, ANTIFA, or the rest, despite murder, beatings, and burning down large sections of cities, a very unfair double standard. They definitely won't attack the home of a former Democrat President, nor should they. It is all so out of control, great simmering anger!"

Trump has long maintained the pursuit of him would ultimately stop if he announced he was not running for president again, calling it all a "sneak attack on democracy."

"America has never suffered this kind of abuse in law enforcement!" Trump wrote on Truth Social. "For the FBI to raid the home of the 45 president of the United States, or any president for that matter, is totally unheard of and unthinkable.

"This break in was a sneak attack on democracy (our republic!), and was both unannounced and done at a time when the president was not even present. It was for political, not legal reasons, and our entire country is angry, hurt, and greatly embarrassed by it. Make America Great Again!"
