Eric Trump has announced that his family has surveillance tapes of the Biden FBI’s unprecedented raid on former President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate. The tapes will “absolutely” be released “at the right time,” Trump said. FBI agents reportedly seized multiple boxes of documents, two binders of photographs, a handwritten note and President Trump’s passports, among other items.
During an appearance on Hannity, former president Trump’s son announced that the tapes will soon be released.
“Will you—you still have the surveillance tape, is that correct? Will you—are you allowed to share that with the country?” Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Eric Trump. “Absolutely, Sean. At the right time,” he replied.
“Few days out, Sean, from the midterms,” the former president’s son continued. “Yeah. It’s not, it’s not surprising. This timing is not surprising. And it’s backfiring on these people.”

The Trump family reportedly watched the raid as it unfolded via surveillance cameras. Family members viewed the raid from Trump Tower in New York as agents searched the Florida property, The Daily Mail reported.
Christina Bobb, one of Trump’s lawyers, told One America News that the former president had a better view of the raid than she did, even though Bobb was present at Mar-A-Lago as FBI agents rummaged through the residence.
“I think the folks in New York – President Trump and his family – probably had a better view than I did because they had the CCTV, but they were able to watch I was stuck in the parking lot there to collect paper and answer questions. But they were actually able to see the whole thing so they actually have a better idea of what took place inside,” Bobb said.
Bobb added that that the property’s security cameras were turned off for a “very short period of time” while agents spoke with lawyers about the surveillance system.
