Speaking to “Fox & Friends” Wednesday, Paul who a presidential rival of Trump’s in 2016 said it’s not beyond the realm of possibility the FBI could do this given their past track record.
Do I know that the boxes of material they took from Mar-a-Lago, that they won’t put things into those boxes to entrap him?” Paul asked.
He continued: “How do we know? … How do we know they’re going to be honest with us about what’s actually in the boxes? How do we know that was in the box before it left the residence if the lawyers weren’t allowed to see everything?”
The theory that incriminating evidence may have been planted during the raid and search of the resort was also espoused by President Trump Wednesday, with him revealing the FBI would not let his people access areas being searched that day.
“The FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago,” Trump said Wednesday on Truth Social, his social media platform.
