FBI agents in Trump Mar-a-Lago raid sought nuclear weapons documents: Report

FBI agents appear to have been on the hunt for classified documents related to nuclear weapons during their raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort on Monday, according to a report.

Sources told the Washington Post that such classified information was among the items agents look for in the search, but declined to speak about any other materials that may have been sought. It remains unclear whether they found any nuclear documents, but experts cited in the report said this adds credence to fears by government officials that they could be obtained by bad actors.

Amid a political firestorm, in which Trump has decried the raid as being politically motivated, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Thursday that he had personally approved the FBI’s decision to seek a search warrant.

Federal investigators served a grand jury subpoena in June and collected documents believed to contain sensitive national security information stashed in the basement of the resort, CNN reported. The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that “someone familiar with the stored papers” told investigators there were still possibly more classified materials at the private club, and it noted there was doubt among Justice Department officials that Trump’s team was being truthful about what records remained at Mar-a-Lago.

All this took place months after the National Archives and Records Administration collected about 15 boxes worth of material from Mar-a-Lago that officials said should have been turned over after Trump left office. Officials at the National Archives said they found classified material in the trove and referred the matter to the Justice Department.

FBI agents took about a dozen boxes in the latest raid, Trump’s lawyer said.

In a flurry of Truth Social posts on Thursday, Trump complained of being targeted in the raid without warning.

“My attorneys and representatives were cooperating fully, and very good relationships had been established,” Trump said. “The government could have had whatever they wanted, if we had it. They asked us to put an additional lock on a certain area – DONE! Everything was fine, better than that of most previous Presidents, and then, out of nowhere and with no warning, Mar-a-Lago was raided, at 6:30 in the morning, by VERY large numbers of agents, and even ‘safecrackers.’ They got way ahead of themselves. Crazy!”

This story is breaking and will be updated.
