(FreedomBeacon.com)- An inventory released on Sept. 2 shows that FBI agents took over 11,000 documents and photos that were not marked as a secret from the home of former President Donald Trump.
They also took 103 secret documents, some of which were marked “top secret.”
The warrant, signed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart a few days earlier, gave agents the right to take any classified documents, the containers where the documents were stored or found, and any other containers that were stored or found with the papers.
It also lets agents seize information about the retrieval, storage, or transmission of national defense information or classified material, as well as any government and presidential records made between January 20, 2017, and January 20, 2021, and any evidence of the “knowing alteration, destruction, or concealment of any government and Presidential Records, or of any documents with classification markings.”
As the agents left, they gave a Trump lawyer an inventory list of the property they had taken. On Friday, a judge asked for a more detailed inventory list to be sent to a federal court.
A Trump appointee, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, is thinking about whether or not to appoint a special master to look over the materials the government seized and separate the ones that may be privileged.
The more detailed receipt also shows that the government took 1,673 magazines, newspapers, press articles, and other printed materials, some of which date back to 2008. They also took 48 empty folders with classified banners, 42 empty folders that said “return to staff secretary/military aide,” 19 clothing/gift items, 33 books, and 42 empty folders with “return to staff secretary/military aide” written on them.
There were no gifts, clothes, folders, or books in the first list.
It mostly listed boxes of things, various documents, some of which were secret, and binders of photos.
Later, the government admitted that it had taken Trump’s three passports, which have since been returned.
Taylor Budowich, a spokesman for Trump, said that the new list “only proves that this unprecedented and unnecessary raid of President Trump’s home was not a surgical, limited search and retrieval as the Biden administration claims, it was a SMASH AND GRAB.”
