CARY, North Carolina–Here we go again. It’s Russia Hoax 2.0.
ALSO READ: From Just The News -Trump denies possession of nuclear documents, suggests FBI planted the Washington Post story.
In a Friday morning Truth Social post, President Trump denied reports that there was any classified information pertaining to nuclear weapons at Mar-a-Lago.
Former President Donald Trump on Friday pointedly denied still possessing classified documents about nuclear weapons after a Washington Post article suggested that was what FBI agents were searching for in his home.
He compared the article to leaks during the 2016 election of the now-discredited Steele dossier.
Trump wrote on his social media app Truth Social, “Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more.”
“Same sleazy people involved,” he added, referring to some of the top appointees at the DOJ and FBI. “Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-a-Lago with our lawyer’s [sic], or others present? Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close — said ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT.'”
Trump further suggested that information may have been leaked to the media in order to portray him in a negative light following the raid.
“Planting information anyone? Reminds me of a Christofer [sic] Steele Dossier!” wrote Trump, referring to the debunked opposition research report that alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government
On Thursday evening, the Washington Post reported that the FBI descended on Mar-a-Lago and rifled through Trump’s private home for hours to find documents potentially pertaining to nuclear weapons. Sources did not tell the Post “what type of information the agents were seeking,” nor if any documents were recovered.
So who leaked it? You guessed it.

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
President Barack Hussein Obama kept 33 million pages of documents, much of them classified. How many of them pertained to nuclear? Word is, lots!
Number one, it was all declassified. Number two, they didn’t need to “seize” anything. They could have had it anytime they wanted without playing politics and breaking into Mar-a-Lago. It was in secured storage, with an additional lock put on as per their request. They could have had it anytime they wanted—and that includes LONG ago. ALL THEY HAD TO DO WAS ASK. The bigger problem is, what are they going to do with the 33 million pages of documents, many of which are classified, that President Obama took to Chicago?
FROM THE DAILY MAIL – Fredericks to Trump: Announce NOW!
By Rob Crilly
The FBI search of former Donald Trump‘s Florida home has triggered feverish speculation that he will soon announce a 2024 run – exciting supporters but worrying party leaders and donors that he could ruin hopes of retaking the House and Senate in November’s midterms.
‘I think he’s running,’ said Eric Levine, an attorney and longtime Republican fundraiser. ‘The only question is whether he announces before the midterms, which would be a disaster.’ Multiple party insiders told DailyMail.com they fear an early announcement would divert fundraising away from candidates and towards the Trump war chest.
And it would turn the midterms from being a winnable referendum on Joe Biden‘s presidency – its economic crises and foreign policy missteps – to a Trump versus Biden beauty pageant.
Trump grabbed the initiative by posting a campaign-style video on his Truth Social platform after midnight on Tuesday. He calls America “a nation in decline” and slams Biden before ending with the slogan: “The best is yet to come.”
At the same time, he has upped the number of fundraising emails sent to his distribution list.
‘Mar-a-Lago was raided,’ said one sent on Wednesday. ‘The radical left is corrupt.
‘We must return the power to the people.’
FBI agents entered Trump’s home as they investigated the removal of classified records from the White House when his term ended in 2021.
The result was outrage among Republicans, who accused the Biden administration of politicizing the FBI and the Justice Department.
Allies have been urging Trump to jump straight into the campaign to retake the White House.
John Fredericks, radio host, and Chair of the Trump Virginia campaign in 2016 and 2020, said he should announce ‘today’ and launch a tour of swing districts immediately. ‘It leads him to a landslide victory in November 2024, it leads to a massive 50-70 House gain and three in the Senate,’ he said.
‘This has activated the Trump MAGA base like nothing I’ve ever seen. It has activated independents and this is going to backfire on the administrative state and the leftwing Marxists who are now in charge.’
Trump insiders have been divided for months on when to announce. Some have pushed for weeks to announce quickly in order to head off possible opponents, particularly Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who has been making headlines and gaining ground.
