Earlier this month, FBI agents executed a search warrant at former President Donald Trump's private residence at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Trump and other conservatives reacted with fury, accusing the federal government of weaponizing the FBI to politically harm a former president.

But Trump is not exactly worried about getting in legal trouble, according to a new report.

New Report

Citing people familiar with the situation, Politico reported that Trump had made no adjustments to his schedule since the FBI raid; working, hosting dinners, and playing golf.

Several people who have spoken to Trump in recent weeks described him as frustrated but "cheerful."

The former president reportedly believes the FBI raid has benefited him politically. He has been fundraising off the matter, with his PAC sending numerous emails to supporters across the nation and asking for contributions.

Not In Legal Trouble

Trump is reportedly looking to boost his legal team. Still, neither the former president nor anyone close to him believes he is in legal jeopardy, according to a person familiar with the situation.

"I don't think anyone truly believes he's in legal jeopardy. They see this as just another headache to deal with, and it's an unnecessary issue when they could be focused on other things like preparing for a potential run," the person said.

Trump has not appeared in public since the raid -- though his children have -- but he has made sure to slam the FBI via his social networking platform, Truth Social.

In private conversations, Trump has openly discussed his plans for a comeback presidential bid in 2024. Though he appeared angry at the FBI, he did not seem deterred by the raid, a person who attended a dinner with Trump told Politico.

"He was upbeat, not downbeat. He wasn't deterred by it; he expressed more disdain for what they did to his family more than what they did to him, searching Melania's closet and going after his kids. [The search] was a major discussion at the beginning of the dinner, but he definitely wasn't obsessed," they explained.

Virtually all relevant polls show Trump would easily win the Republican presidential nomination, but would he be able to beat Biden in the general election?

As Fox News reported, a recent Emerson College poll, for example, put Trump ahead of Biden in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.

Forty-seven percent of likely voters in the poll said they'd back Trump, while 42 percent said they'd vote for Biden.
