An unsealed FBI search warrant revealed on Friday, August 12, that former US president Donald Trump is being looked at for possibly breaking the Espionage Act and obstructing justice.

Additionally, the order states that the agency is looking into Mr. Trump’s removal or destruction of records.

The letter indicates that the “property to be seized” at Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, includes “any physical documents and records comprising evidence, contraband, fruits of crime or other goods illegally possessed in violation of” the crimes under investigation.

Possession of national security information that could be used against the nation or to support a foreign foe is forbidden by the Espionage Act.

On Monday, federal agents searched Mr Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida and the unsealed warrant states the FBI removed about 20 boxes from the premises.

One box included “various classified” and “top secret” documents. There were four boxes that included “miscellaneous top secret documents” and three with “confidential documents”.

Another included “info re: President of France”.

The Washington Post reported that there were concerns that documents relating to US nuclear weapons were being held in Mar-a-Lago.

“I personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant,” US Attorney General Merrick Garland confirmed in a news conference on Thursday, when he also stated he had formally requested the unsealing of the warrant.

The US Department of Justice on Friday said Mr Trump did not object to the public release of the FBI warrant.

Trump posted on his Truth Social media platform on Thursday that he was “encouraging the immediate release of those documents”.
