Top Secret Papers Found in Trump’s Safe

Unsealed warrant and property receipts show.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, the same judge who signed off on the search warrant, has unsealed the warrant and property receipt, Friday at the request of the Justice Department after Attorney General Merrick Garland declared there was “substantial public interest in this matter.”

A property receipt unsealed by the court shows FBI agents took 11 sets of classified records from the estate during a search on Monday. 

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 U.S. 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.

Trump’s attorney, Christina Bobb, who was present at Mar-a-Lago when the agents conducted the search, signed two property receipts — one that was two pages long and another that is a single page.

In a statement earlier Friday, Trump claimed that the documents seized by agents were “all declassified,” and argued that he would have turned them over if the Justice Department had asked.

Many suggest this is a political witch-hunt to bar the former president from running in 2024 and to boost the Democrats ahead of the 2022 Mid Term elections. If found guilty in court, Donald Trump could face a hefty fine or imprisonment.
