Trump Responds After Heavily Redacted Affidavit Released!

The redacted affidavit that FBI investigators used to get a warrant to search the Palm Beach, Florida, residence of former president Donald Trump has been released, providing more information about what the Department of Justice knew about the presence of official papers there prior to the search.

FBI agents examined the contents of boxes taken from Mr. Trump in January 2021, and they discovered “184 unique documents bearing classification markings, including 67 documents marked as CONFIDENTIAL, 92 documents marked as SECRET, and 25 documents marked as TOP SECRET,” according to the 38-page report that was made public on Friday by US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart.

Documents maintained at Mar-a-Lago, according to the Justice Department, might endanger “clandestine human sources” used in intelligence gathering.

The unnamed FBI agent who signed the affidavit further stated that there were papers with Mr. Trump’s handwriting in them.

According to the unsealed and heavily redacted affidavit used to support the raid, the FBI stated that it had “probable cause to believe” that additional records containing classified information, including National Defense Information, would be discovered on the premises of the former president Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in addition to what he had already turned over to the National Archives and Records Administration.

After U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart authorized the DOJ’s suggested redactions to the affidavit, it was made public on Friday.

The 38-page affidavit had about 20 pages that were either heavily redacted or completely removed.
