The media teamed up with the usual never-Trump suspects on Monday to call Trump a “liar” for saying that the Department of Justice confiscated his passports during the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago. Then the feds admitted that they actually did take the documents, totally destroying the left’s fake news.
On Monday, Trump took to his Truth Social account to complain that the FBI “stole” his passports.
“In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else,” Trump wrote. “This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never seen before in our Country. Third World!”
But the media immediately jumped on his claims and called him a liar.
The fake news ball started rolling with CBS liar Norah O’Donnell who tweeted that her FBI insiders told her that the FBI never touched the passports.
According to a DOJ official, the FBI is NOT in possession of former President Trump’s passports. Trump had accused the FBI of stealing his three passports during the search of his Mar-a-Lago home,” O’Donnell tweeted.

Right after that, the usual corrupt left-wingers jumped to twitter to pile on O’Donnell’s tweet to call President Trump a liar. You can see these cretins at a post by Breitbart News.
But before the day was out, the feds admitted they really did take the passports and returned them.
Per NBC News:
Passports belonging to Donald Trump have been returned to the former president after last week’s FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago home, a Justice Department official told NBC News on Monday.
The FBI acknowledged it had had the passports the same day Trump said on his social media platform that FBI agents who conducted the search on Aug. 8 took them.
Trump’s reps blasted the FBI.
“I think this goes to show the level of audacity that they have,” said Trump attorney Christina Bob. “I think it goes to show how aggressive they were, how overreaching they were, that they were willing to go past the four corners of the warrant and take whatever they felt was appropriate or they felt that they could take.”
But, this incident shows not only audacity of the feds, it also shows the extent the fake news media will go to in order to destroy Trump.
