(NewsGlobal.com)- During his rally in Pennsylvania earlier this month, former President Donald Trump revealed that not only did FBI agents go through Melania’s closet during the August 8 raid on Mar-a-Lago, but they had also rifled through his son Barron’s room.
Trump was hammering the FBI over last month’s raid, claiming the search was done on a “phony pretext” and granted by a “highly political” magistrate.
The former president told the crowd that the agents “rifled through” Melania’s closet drawers and “even did a deep and ugly search of the room of my 16-year-old son,” prompting boos from the crowd.
Trump added that everything the FBI agents touched was left in a “far different condition than it was when they started.”

Unsurprisingly, the usual anti-Trump media people dismissed Trump’s claims.
In a segment on MSNBC, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti suggested that the FBI had every reason to search Barron’s room because Trump might have been hiding documents there. However, he added that he doesn’t believe Trump’s claim, saying “I don’t take anything that Trump says at face value.”
