The unsealed FBI warrant served on former President Trump’s Florida home revealed that the agency took multiple sets of documents marked top secret.
The warrant approved by Attorney General Merrick Garland directed agents to seize “all physical documents and records constituting evidence, contraband, fruits of crime, or other items illegally possessed.”
According to the report, agents found eleven sets of classified documents in the president’s home.
Among the items uncovered were binders of photos, a handwritten note, and the “executive grant of clemency” for Roger Stone.
Attorneys representing Trump claim that the president declassified the materials before the end of his term:
“They didn’t need to ‘seize’ anything,” read a statement by Trump’s office. “They could have had it anytime they wanted without playing politics and breaking into Mar-a-Lago. It was in a secured storage, with an additional lock put on as per their request.”
The unsealing of the warrant came hours after a request from AG Garland’s press conference promising to disclose the information in hopes that the public would further understand why the warrant was served.
