It’s a first. The FBI searched former President Trump’s Florida home with a search warrant.
The Mar-a-Lago search was part of an effort to account for documents said to relate to some of the most highly classified U.S. programs.
According to US media the FBI took dozens of classified documents from Mar-a-Lago including Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information. It is among the most top secret level.
There are three levels of security classification for the US Government. 1 – Classified, 2 – Secret, 3 – Top Secret.
Lots of info on the classification of documents retrieved in the warrant. Materials labeled sensitive compartmented information, need to be kept inside sensitive compartmented information facility.
Trump and the Republicans said search was an “attack” to Trump.
Trump supporters harshly criticized Department of Justice and FBI blaming them to act with a political agenda.
Florida Federal Judge who approved FBI search at Trump’s home was appointed by Trump in 2018.
Trump appointed the Director of the FBI and in 2018 raised the penalty for the crime of mishandling classified documents from one year to five years when he was President.
Liz Cheney, a Republican Member of Congress expressed her frustration with
members of Republican party attacking the integrity of the FBI agents involved with the recent Mar-a-Lago search. She said these comments that put the lives of public servants at risk.
In Ohio, a suspect attacked FBI office and killed in stand off. Press identified the Ohio shooting suspect as “Ricky Shiffer.” There is a Truth Social account using that same name. On the same day the FBI executed a warrant on Mar A Lago, the account made a call to “be ready for combat” and to “Kill the FBI on sight.”
42 years old suspect seems to have appeared in a video posted on Facebook on Jan. 5, 2021, showing him attending a pro-Trump rally at Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington the night before the Capitol was stormed.
Trump attorney says FBI raid was ‘shocking’: Trump was cooperating with FBI.
News, questions, comments are pouring in.
Trump lawyer Christina Bobb on TV program asked if there were documents about nukes at Mar-a-Lago: “I don’t believe there were.”
”I have not specifically spoken to the President about what nuclear materials may or may not have been in there. I do not believe there were.”
While Trump supporters and Republicans questioning FBI’s search warrant and search
Thursday The Justice Department has filed a motion to unseal the search warrant executed at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property.
Hours later former President Trump said on Truth Social he is not opposing the release of the documents, calls for “immediate release”.
Why a year and a half after Trump losing the Presidential election against President Biden.
According to the people briefed on the documents sought by FBI at Mar a Lago they were so sensitive and related to national security that the Department of Justice had to act.
Donald Trump received a subpoena this spring seeking documents months before the FBI searched his Florida home on Monday.
Department of Justice tried to gain possession of classified documents by subpoena and then got intel that Trump did not produce everything required. So search warrant was needed.
While everybody talking about nuclear secrets, documents according to The Atomic Energy Act, a U.S. president does not have the authority to declassify material on nuclear or atomic energy or weapons.
Republican support for former President Donald Trump’s potential 2024 GOP presidential bid appears to be increasing following the FBI search of his home in Florida.
Will this FBI – Mar-a – Lago search and it’s legal and political results results be enough to break away Republicans from Trump for next Presidential elections?
In many U.S. cities, Trump endorsed Republican candidates continue to win political races.
