FBI agents found four dozen empty document folders marked “CLASSIFIED” during their raid last month of former President Donald Trump’s residence at his Mar-a-Lago club, a newly unsealed court file revealed Friday…
The FBI also found another 42 empty folders marked “Return to Staff Secretary/Miliary [sic] Aide,” during the Aug. 8 raid, which was authorized to search for government documents removed from the White House when Trump left office in Jan. 2021, the filing said…
The bombshell revelations raise the prospect that the DOJ has not yet recovered the documents that would have been in the empty folders.
That theft would be a crime.
The detailed inventory made public Friday was one of two court filings related to the FBI raid that were ordered unsealed by Judge Aileen Cannon…
The other document unsealed Friday is titled, “Notice of Investigative Team of Status of Review,” and notes that the criminal probe did not end with the raid.
As lawyers involved with all sides of this issue release analysis, statements, over time…the American public will have further opportunity to come to their own conclusions about Trump’s removal of evidence from firsthand use in proceedings yet to come.
Yes, his behavior is creepy and passes in my mind as evidence of trying to hide or destroy evidence of crimes.
I expect that the American body politic will continue to increase the percentage of folks who will vote in reality and in the arena of American politics to condemn these practices by Trump and his flunkies.
Practices likely to be ruled illegal by appropriate agencies.
