“The Justice Department and FBI are “leaking” at levels never seen before – and I did nothing wrong!!!

It can not be circumvented, for me or any other President. They illegally Raided my home, and took things that should not have been taken. They even broke into my safe, an unthinkable act!” explained the former President.
