Former president Donald Trump on Monday said a “large group” of FBI agents visited his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Calling the visit a raid, Trump claimed FBI agents even “broke into” his safe. The FBI declined to comment on whether it had conducted a search of the former president’s property.
The trip comes ahead of a pair of high-profile bill signings at the White House this week. On Tuesday, Biden plans to sign legislation that aims to boost the U.S. semiconductor industry. On Wednesday, he’ll sign a bill expanding health-care access for military veterans exposed to toxins. Those bills are among a spate of legislative victories racked up by the Democratic-led Congress, with another likely to come by week’s end. On Sunday, the Senate passed the Inflation Reduction Act, a package to combat climate change, lower health-care costs, raise taxes on some billion-dollar corporations and reduce the federal deficit. The House plans to return to Washington on Friday to take up the bill.
