Former President Donald Trump warned that “bad things are going to happen” if American resentment over the search is not reduced during an interview with Fox News Digital one week after FBI officers raided his Mar-a-Lago residence.

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is currently conducting its investigation, and the former president stated that he has given cooperation to the DOJ “because the temperature in the country has to be cooled down.”

He told Fox News Digital, “If it isn’t, bad things are going to happen.”

Following the FBI search, there have been days of political discussion about what Trump has called “a stealth attack on democracy.” The FBI executed a search warrant on August 8 after receiving a tip from an informant about Trump reportedly keeping sensitive documents at Mar-a-Lago after leaving the White House, according to Newsweek’s article from last week.

In his interview on Monday morning, Trump claimed that the United States is currently experiencing “tremendous rage” as a result of “years of frauds and witch hunts.” Over the past week, he has made multiple posts on his social media platform Truth Social in which he has referred to the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago search as a “witch hunt.”

There have been “years” of “witch hunts,” according to Trump, which have included inquiries into his supposed ties to Russia.

No one “even imagined a thing like this would happen,” Trump continued, “and then they break into a president’s residence.”

Trump declared that “the people of our country are not going to stand for another hoax.”

Trump said that because his team was left outdoors, FBI investigators were free to seize “everything” from Mar-a-Lago. He asked if goods could have been “placed” by agents while they were conducting their search.

According to Attorney General Merrick Garland, a lawyer for President Trump was present when the search took place and was given copies of the property receipt and search warrant before the officers left Mar-a-Lago that day.

In the past week, Trump has attacked the FBI on many occasions, most recently in a Sunday post on Truth Social in which he said the agency “has a long and unrelenting history of being corrupt.” Trump claimed “Radical Left Democrats” have a “complete and absolute grasp” over the DOJ and the FBI in another Sunday Truth Social post.

Following the FBI’s Mar-a-Lago search, federal law enforcement organizations have issued a warning about an increase in threats against officers. The “unfounded attacks” on officers have been denounced by both Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray, who have both expressed their support for the DOJ and FBI professionals who are facing criticism.

Wray said in a statement last week that threats of violence against law enforcement, including the FBI, are dangerous and should greatly worry all Americans.

The DOJ was contacted by Newsweek for comment.
