Former President Trump’s legal team has reportedly located two documents bearing classified markings at Trump’s storage unit in West Palm Beach, Fla., following the FBI search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in August.
According to a report by the Washington Post, the documents had been immediately handed to the FBI. It is also important to note that the storage unit is maintained by the General Services Administration, and is one of the many outside locations that are currently being searched through by Trump’s lawyers to look for other remaining classified materials.
This move was part of a federal judge’s request to the former President’s legal team which was tasked with ensuring that there were no further classified documents being hidden following the subpoena issued earlier this year which called for Trump to hand over any classified documents he still has in his possession.
The National Archives has added that they thought Trump has kept in his possession some White House records that should have been handed in at the end of his presidency. According to the report by the Post, there were also searches of Trump Tower in New York and the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., but no classified material was found in either of the two locations.
The West Palm Beach storage unit where the classified documents were located was used by Trump staffers to store items from the northern Virginia office after Trump left office.
