The country’s Central Investigation Agency (FBI) has recovered more than 11,000 official documents and photos from the Florida home of former US President Donald Trump. Reuters news.
48 blank files written ‘confidential’ were also recovered from that house. This information was found in the documents released by the court on Friday.
On August 8, the FBI conducted a search operation at the Mar-a-Lago resort of the former president of the United States. US politics stormed around this unprecedented search.
U.S. District Judge Eileen Cannon in West Palm Beach released the documents found in the search.
The female judge heard arguments from Trump’s attorneys and two of the Justice Department’s top counterintelligence counsel on whether a special officer should be appointed at Trump’s request to conduct a special review of previously seized material.
Former US Attorney General William Barr questioned the effectiveness of such appointments. He was appointed by Trump.
In an interview with Fox News, Barr said, “Since they (the FBI) have already read the documents, I think it’s a waste of time to appoint a special master at this point.”
Barr stepped down as attorney general in December 2020. He resigned after refusing to support Trump’s allegations of rigging that year’s presidential election.
54 have been kept in the ‘confidential’ category. Another 31 documents are mentioned as ‘confidential’. ‘Top Secret’ is the highest level of confidentiality. The most secret matters of the country fall into this category.
