Tehran (IP)- The scandal of hiding top secret US government documents, including the nuclear documents, by the former president, Donald Trump, on the one hand, and the increasing criticism of public institutions, especially the FBI and the Ministry of Justice, by Trump supporters, especially some Republicans, have created a new political crisis in the United States.

Iran PressCommentary: The FBI raided Trump's Mar-a-Lago in Florida on Monday last week and recovered 20 boxes, including 11 sets of top secret documents.

Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, says: "If the nature of these documents is as we have been informed, so we are facing a very serious challenge." This information is highly classified and more sensitive than top secret documents, and as we are told, it is related to US national security.

The 76-year-old former president stressed that he was the victim of "politically motivated abuse of law enforcement" by "radical left Democrats."

Among the discovered documents, there are classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items. Trump denied the authenticity of the papers and said, "Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents may have "planted" evidence when they searched his Mar-a-Lago home for missing White House records."

Trump can be called a man of scandals. Among the most important of these scandals are the tax violations, illegal actions of the Trump Foundation, and the conspiracy of the Trump campaign team with Russia in the 2016 presidential election.

Another Trump scandal that is still open is his role on January 6, 2021, attack on Congress by supporters. But Trump's recent scandal of keeping top-secret documents is unprecedented because this is the first time in the United States that a president's home has been searched for hiding classified documents.

Also, the discovery of top-secret US documents from Trump's Mar-a-Lago shows that the former president has violated even the most apparent principles and refused to hand over documents to the National Archives.

Trump supporters and some Republicans believe that searching Trump's house was done to remove him from the 2024 presidential campaign.

Recently, the FBI has been the target of "verbal attacks and threats of retaliation" from far-right circles that support Trump because of the search for Trump's home.

In this regard, Trump's supporters protested in front of his mansion in Florida and threatened federal institutions, especially the FBI. They also conducted an unsuccessful attack on the federal police headquarters in Ohio. Christopher Wray, appointed as the agency's director in 2017 by Trump, called threats circulating online against federal agents and the Justice Department "deplorable and dangerous."

This phenomenon shows that even the issue of independence of legal institutions has been questioned in America.

Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and one of the people loyal to Trump, believes that if Trump becomes president again, he will take similar action against President Joe Biden.
