FBI finds nuclear weapons documents at Mar-a-Lago

The papers are said to be so secret that not even many high-ranking security officials were allowed to see them. But former President Trump takes highly sensitive information to his villa after his term in office ends. According to a report, FBI investigators search and find him there.

According to a media report, when searching the villa of former US President Donald Trump in early August, investigators also found top-secret material about another country’s nuclear weapons. This was reported by the “Washington Post”, citing circles. It was not clear which state it belonged to.

Shortly after the operation on Trump’s property in August, the newspaper reported that the FBI federal police were also looking for secret documents about nuclear weapons. Trump called it ‘dizziness’. The newspaper now writes that some of the documents seized from Trump contained information that was so sensitive and generally so well-protected that not even many senior national security officials had access to it. Only the President and some cabinet members could authorize other government officials to know the details. For some covert US operations, only a few dozen people in the entire government system are authorized to know of their existence. Records of this will usually be kept in secure facilities under the supervision of an inspector.

On August 8, the FBI searched Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, Florida, home. The task force confiscated several boxes containing more than 100 confidential documents, some of which were under the highest security levels. Because Trump kept papers in his personal property after his term, he may have broken the law. Now it is being investigated.

Trump called the officials’ actions politically motivated. For weeks, the Republican has fueled speculation that he could run for a second term in the 2024 presidential election. In early May, the FBI checked 15 boxes of documents that Trump had sent from Mar-a-Lago to the National Archives after a long insistence. The officials found 184 confidential documents of various classification levels. Soon after, following a legal order, Trump’s team handed over 38 other confidential documents to the FBI, including 17 marked “top secret.” In all, there are at least more than 300 classified documents that Trump held with him.
