Washington Post: FBI Search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Related to Nuclear Weapons Documents
It’s been a crazy news day, but I was not expecting this one to drop, and it gave me chills: FBI search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago related to nuclear documents, sources say. (Gift link; no paywall.)
Classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items FBI agents sought in a search of former president Donald Trump’s Florida residence on Monday, according to people familiar with the investigation.
Experts in classified information said the unusual search underscores deep concern among government officials about the types of information they thought could be located at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and potentially in danger of falling into to the wrong hands.
The people who described some of the material that agents were seeking spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. They did not offer additional details about what type of information the agents were seeking, including whether it involved weapons belonging to the United States or some other nation. Nor did they say if such documents were recovered as part of the search. A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Justice Department and FBI declined to comment.
Weren’t the Rosenbergs executed for similar crimes?
