Former U.S. President Donald Trump may be having the worst week of his life when the FBI showed up at his Mar-a-Lago home for classified documents he took during his term earlier in the week, but there’s more bad news. According to legal experts, Trump’s legal problems may have gotten worse.

There was a bombshell report from The New York Times involving surveillance footage from a 60-day period involving boxes being moved in and out of rooms and the possibility of more articles still not turned in to the Department of Justice. With that dilemma, more of a shock to the quickly growing situation.

“The Justice Department also subpoenaed surveillance footage from Mar-a-Lago recorded over a 60-day period, including views from outside the storage room. According to a person briefed on the matter, the footage showed that, after one instance in which Justice Department officials were in contact with Mr. Trump’s team, boxes were moved in and out of the room,” Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush reported. “That activity prompted concern among investigators about the handling of the material. It is not clear when precisely the footage was from during the lengthy back-and-forth between Justice Department officials and Mr. Trump’s advisers, or whether the subpoena to Mr. Trump seeking additional documents had already been issued.

A subpoena was reportedly sent in the spring demanding the return of the classified public records. On June 3rd, Jay I. Bratt, the top counterintelligence official in the DOJ’s national security division, visited Mar-a-Lago and the newspaper reported “Bratt and his team left with additional material marked classified, and around that time also obtained the written declaration from a Trump lawyer attesting that all the material marked classified in the boxes had been turned over.”

Many questions are still coming up. If true, the FBI couldn’t have left with 21 more boxes in August. Thirsty will continue to monitor the blockbuster criminal probe involving Trump, and the classified documents.
