The warrant authorizing the search and seizure of property at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort has been unsealed.
Agents appear to have been searching for a violation of the espionage act described as “all physical documents and records constituting evidence, contraband, fruits of crime, or other items illegally possessed in violation of,” though some of the seized documents specifically labeled don’t appear to fit this criterion.
The warrant lists a number of things taken from the home. The first item listed in one section is the “Executive Grant of Clemency” for Roger Stone.
This particular document is not classified and is even available to the public on the official Department of Justice website.
Another document, according to the warrant contains information on the President of France, though it is not marked as classified.
The FBI also seized several binders containing photos in addition to a “handwritten note”. The bureau also seized a plethora of boxes labeled “A-1” through “A-28” though some numbers were missing.
Other items seized include “various classified/TS/SCI documents”, “potential presidential record”, “miscellaneous secret documents”, “miscellaneous top secret documents”, and “miscellaneous confidential documents”.
Right now the FBI is tasked with finding out whether these documents are actually classified. The President has the right to declassify documents at will, and Trump claims that he has. The only question that remains is whether or not Trump went through the official process to do so.
When Attorney General Merrick Garland filed a motion to unseal the search warrant, Trump’s legal team had no objection. They were even given a copy of the warrant so they could release it on their own accord.
The left has already begun suggesting that if the FBI raid found nothing, perhaps they should consider exhuming the body of Trump’s late wife, Ivanna Trump for more evidence.
