Former US President Donald Trump suspected of possessing confidential documents
Dozens of confidential records seized in Mar-a-Lago search of Trump’s residence
Various claims in respect of seized documents
Washington. Earlier this week, the FBI seized 11 sets of confidential records during a search of former US President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida, marking some of the material as ‘top secret/sensitive’ went. The judge authorized the FBI to search ’45 offices’ at Mar-a-Lago, as well as all other rooms where documents from former President Trump and his staff were kept.
According to a report by news agency ANI, the FBI has seized photographs of the President of France and documents related to him. However, various claims are being made about the documents confiscated from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago. Some reports state that federal agents confiscated only one set of ‘top secret/sensitive’ documents. Whereas in some cases there are four sets and in some cases there are three sets of documents.
One of these documents is about pardoning Trump’s aide Roger Stone. Who was convicted in 2019 of lying to Congress during an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump pardoned Stone before leaving office and sentenced Stone to three years in prison. Mar-a-Lago is Troop’s luxury property spread over 17 acres, with approximately 58 bedrooms and 33 bathrooms.
