Former President Donald Trump made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program on Wednesday night to chat about a few different topics, including the latest lawsuit that’s been filed against him, his adult children, and his business by the state of New York. It’s kind of strange timing to be attacking Trump right now, isn’t it? Why wait until this late in the year to launch the FBI raid and this lawsuit? Could it have something to do with the midterm elections? Interesting thought…
The Conservative Brief is reporting that during one point in the program, Trump discussed the Aug. 8 raid that was conducted by the FBI at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, mentioning the items agents took, which included one that he said “could cause a lot of problems” later on down the road. Uh oh. That doesn’t sound good, does it?
Last Sunday, Trump took his first trip back to the estate since the raid and took stock of what was seized by federal agents.
Hannity, who is a close friend of Trump’s, pointed out the FBI had seized a total of 500 documents that allegedly fall under the umbrella of attorney-client privilege before the former president even mentioned the one problematic document.
“They took a lot. I think they took my will. I found out yesterday,” Trump said during the interview. “I said, ‘Where is it?’”
“Am I in it?” Hannity asked humorously before Trump stated for a second time, “I think they took my will.”
“That could cause a lot of problems,” he said before finally cracking a smile at Hannity’s jest.
“That could cause a lot of problems if that gets published for people who won’t be so happy, or maybe will be very happy,” the former president added.
The interview with Hannity came right as a lawsuit against the Trump Organization by New York Attorney General Letitia James was announced Wednesday morning.
“The NY AG is suing Trump and two of his kids, alleging a massive campaign of fraudulent business practices by the Trump Org. She’s also urging federal prosecutors and the IRS to pursue criminal probes,” Politico senior legal reporter Kyle Cheney said in a post on Twitter. Read more
