FBI Shut Down Security Cameras During 2022 Mar-a-Lago Raid

Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team has filed a response to President Trump’s motion to dismiss the classified documents case, which alleges spoliation of evidence seized by agents during the 2022 raid on Mar-a-Lago.

The new motion filed states that the FBI turned off security cameras at Mar-a-Lago due to “concerns for agent safety.”

In August 2022, the FBI, under President Biden’s administration, raided Mar-a-Lago and seized boxes of records from Trump’s Florida estate.

In August 2022, heavily armed agents descended on Mar-a-Lago.

By November, President Biden’s Department of Justice had appointed a special counsel to investigate the documents stored at the Florida residence.

“At approximately 9:55 am, the CCTV servers were turned off to prevent recording, at the request of the FBI, out of concern for agent safety,” Jack Smith’s prosecutors wrote.

“At approximately 10:20 am, recording resumed at the request of Trump attorneys.”


This case should be immediately dismissed with prejudice.
