As the DOJ seeks to get the search warrant documents relating to the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property unsealed, the Washington Post has reported that the search is about Trump keeping classified documents related to nuclear weapons on the property.
According to unnamed sources cited by the Washington Post, the FBI sought documents relating to nuclear weapons and other classified information when they executed the search warrant on his Mar-a-Lago residence.
However, the source hadn’t revealed if the documents were recovered and whether the nuclear weapons discussed in the docs were U.S. nuclear weapons.
The report by the Washington Post came hours after attorneys for the Department of Justice issued a court filing seeking to have the search warrant unsealed because of “The public’s clear and powerful interest in understanding what occurred.”
Other media organizations had also requested that the documents be unsealed, and on Thursday evening, Trump — in a statement in Truth Social — showed his support for having the documents unsealed.
“Not only will I not oppose the release of documents related to the unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary raid and break-in of my home in Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago, I am going a step further by ENCOURAGING the immediate release of those documents, even though they have been drawn up by radical left Democrats and possible future political opponents, who have a strong and powerful vested interest in attacking me, much as they have done for the last 6 years,” Trump said in his statement.
However, according to the court filing, Trump’s legal team was in possession of a copy of the search warrant and a list of documents recovered, which they have not released.
So far, Christina Bobb, a lawyer for Trump, has only acknowledged that the search warrant had to do with classified information being stored on the property.
