Donald Trump’s legal team demolished the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) media spin that denied having the former president’s passports in their possession following the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago last week.

On Monday, former President Trump claimed on his social media site TruthSocial that the FBI “stole” his passports during the raid that shook the political world last week.

The article goes on to state the following:

“In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else,” he said. “This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our Country. Third World!”


According to Breitbart News, the passports were “not independently itemized on the FBI’s property receipt of the 28 inventory items federal agents seized” and the warrant approved by Attorney General Merrick Garland “did not state that they could take Trump’s passport,” the report noted.

“Typically, the government needs a separate court order to seize someone’s passport, even temporarily.”

After reports about the passports went public, the DOJ denied having the passports.

“According to a DOJ official, the FBI is NOT in possession of former President Trump’s passports. Trump had accused the FBI of stealing his three passports during the search of his Mar-a-Lago home,” Norah O’Donnell of CBS News announced on Monday.

Taylor Budowich, Trump’s communications director, disputed that claim, sharing an email from Jay Bratt, the top counterintelligence official in the Justice Department’s national security division. The email included confirmation that three passports were taken in the raid. The email said the passports would be returned.

“We have learned that the filter agents seized three passports belonging to President Trump, two expired and one being his active diplomatic passport. We are returning them, and they will be ready for pick up at WFO at 2 PM today,” the email read.

The email also contradicts trolls on Twitter, including journalist David Leavitt, who speculated about Trump having a “Russian passport.”

Leavitt tweeted, “Why does he need THREE passports?🤔 Let’s guess: Russian Passport (Active) Saudi Passport (Active) US Passport (Expired).”

Former FBI agent Peter Strzok also mocked the report, asking why the former president had multiple passports.

Strzok tweeted, “And why does he have two passports? The Russian passport, of course, is kept in a vault at Yasenevo and only swapped out at third country meets, so it can’t be that one.”

      • I respect Pres. Trump for wanting to lower the national temperature, but I don’t see our domestic enemies backing off one whit, do you? I think We The People already have been as patient as anyone can be. And we mist give peace one more chance, via the elections. But if they’re as fraudulent as the last, all bets are off.

        Ordinarily I’m not bloodyminded, but I make an exception for treason. The customary punishment for traitors is death by hanging. And treason is not bound by a statute of limitations.

  1. 💯 agree and they are all dems . Need a purge of dems and the alphabets. All need gone by any means necessary . And contrary to stupid opinion the fbi is not a part of the thin blue line. They need purging at the top for sure and im sorry the ones who just went along to keep their jobs have no balls so nope font need them either.

  2. strzok needs to be hanging for that lie. He just input a lie into the media with his stinking opinion. The slimy bastard weasel already lied. Couldn’t stand that creepy look on his face when he was being cross examined. I have kept my 3 expired passports for momentos of my worldly travels. Those are things you don’t get rid of. Trump should sue these bastards. Fuck them all. They all deserve to rot in hell.

    • Very well said! Strzok has nothing to be proud of! He is as dishonest has they come and a CHEATER as well! His opinion means nothing!!!!

  3. The US Government is in chaos & needs to have the “Garbage taken out” the US Government is diseased & the Media is corrupt along with them.. we can no longer trust our Government as to what is told as truth‼️ It is time like never before to “reboot the system “ after November 2022.. we need to give them a taste of their own medicine thru have been shoving down our throats for these past 2years.

  4. The Only Thing They confiscated from Trump’s estate criminalizes the Democratic party that’s why they took it..thats why they want it redacted or hidden completely. They cant afford transparency- it exposes them for what they are.
