Trump residence raid: FBI recovers 11 classified documents
Some documents were classified as "Top Secret," as revealed by the FBI.
After raiding former US President Donald Trump's Florida house, the FBI has recovered 11 sets of classified documents, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The publication's report divulges that FBI agents recovered 11 sets of classified documents, including some labeled "Top Secret."
In addition, about 20 boxes of materials were retrieved from Trump's residence, including handwritten notes, executive orders, and other documents, according to the report.
After the FBI raided Trump's Mar-A-Lago residence in Florida on August 8, Trump accused his political enemies of weaponizing the judicial system against him.
Today, Friday, Trump dismissed a report that FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago residence in aim to search for classified nuclear weapon documents.
"Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Muller investigation was a Hoax and much more. Same sleazy people," Trump wrote on Truth Social.
Trump also questioned why the FBI wouldn't allow his lawyers to be present during the inspection, accusing them of 'planting' evidence in the mansion.
In a recent poll, over three-quarters of Republicans believe that the political enemies of former President Donald Trump are behind the FBI’s recent raid on his Mar-a-Lago residence.
Trump suggests FBI 'planting' evidence at Florida residence
Following a dramatic raid that sparked outrage among Republicans, former US President Donald Trump complained Wednesday that he had been barred from re-entering his Florida resort home and suggested that FBI agents might be "planting" evidence there.
"The FBI and others from the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago," Trump posted on his Truth Social platform.
"Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking or, hopefully not, 'planting.'"
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has refused to provide details about the raid at the palatial West Palm Beach residence, a stunning escalation of the multiple legal investigations into the 45th President.
