The US District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Friday, revealed the search warrant that was used by the FBI to conduct a raid of former President Donald Trump's Mar-A-Lago residence.
The search warrant, signed by Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart on August 5, authorized a raid on Trump's residence until August 19. The FBI, based on that document, searched Mar-A-Lago on August 8.
Investigators took a number documents - 11 classified documents - which included materials labeled "Top Secret."

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.
