Court Papers: FBI Seized 11 Sets Of Secret Documents From Trump

The FBI recovered “top secret” and even more sensitive documents from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, court papers released Friday (Saturday, August 13, 2022, in Manila) by a federal judge who authorized the sudden, unprecedented search this week.


Photo Insert: A binder of photos, a handwritten note, “miscellaneous secret documents” and “miscellaneous confidential documents” were also seized in the search.



A property receipt unsealed by the court shows FBI agents took 11 sets of classified records from the estate during a search on Monday, Michael Balsamo, Zeke Miller and Eric Tucker reported for the Associated Press (AP) on August 14.


The seized records include some marked not only top secret but also “sensitive compartmented information,” a special category meant to protect the nation’s most important secrets that if revealed publicly could cause “exceptionally grave” damage to US interests.



The court records did not provide specific details about information the documents might contain.


The warrant says federal agents were investigating potential violations of three different federal laws, including one that governs gathering, transmitting, or losing defense information under the Espionage Act. The other statutes address the concealment, mutilation, or removal of records and the destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in federal investigations.

The property receipt also shows federal agents collected other potential presidential records, including the order pardoning Trump ally Roger Stone, a “leatherbound box of documents,” and information about the “President of France.”


A binder of photos, a handwritten note, “miscellaneous secret documents” and “miscellaneous confidential documents” were also seized in the search, Lindsay Whitehurst and Meg Kinnard also reported for AP.
