Without releasing the demands in the warrant, the 45th President, Donald Trump (Republican) has reported that his Mar-A-Lago home has been searched. Trump, who is under multiple investigations, has resulted in a Federal Judge and the Department of Justice National Security Division approval of a probable cause warrant allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to search his residential estate, Mar-A-Lago in Palms Spring, Fla.
