Donald Trump would gladly have turned over additional documents during previous interactions with the Justice Department prior to Monday’s raid on Mar-a-Lago, the former president wrote on social media.
On Thursday, Attorney General Merrick Garland claimed the FBI had sought “less-intrusive means as an alternative to a search” prior to Monday’s pre-dawn raid, however President Trump shot back that he’d already handed over requested docs and said he’d been nothing but cooperative.
“My attorneys and representatives were cooperating fully, and very good relationships had been established,” Trump responded.
“The government could have had whatever they wanted, if we had it. They asked us to put an additional lock on a certain area – DONE!”
