Trump allies demand explanation after raid of former US president's Florida home

Furious allies of former US President Donald Trump are demanding an explanation for the FBI's raid on his Florida home, Mar-a-Lago.

The FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) have yet to comment on the search, which Mr. Trump disclosed on Monday evening.

It is reportedly linked to an investigation into his handling of classified and sensitive material.

It was the first time a former US president's home has ever been searched by law enforcement.

Some Democrats have also called on officials to offer more clarity for the raid on the former Republican president's home.

Republicans have depicted the search as politically motivated, with leading figures demanding a briefing and explanation from Attorney General Merrick Garland, the head of the Department of Justice.
