The walls are definitely closing in on former President Donald Trump ever since the FBI retrieved classified documents back in the summer. Now, more shocking developments came out of the raid.
The Washington Post reports that a top-secret document detailing a foreign government’s nuclear capabilities and military defense systems was among hundreds of classified materials seized by the Feds during the Trump Mar-a-Lago raid last month. A “sources familiar with the search,” published the stunning revelation Tuesday night, but the name of the foreign government was kept under wraps.
The documents recovered by the FBI at Trump’s Palm Beach estate are guarded so closely that they require special clearances to view. The President himself must sign off before a government official can gain access to the classified documents in some cases, which are made available on a need-to-know basis. A couple of dozen government officials are reportedly allowed access to the documents, which are placed in a compartmented information facility under lock and key.
Trump took the top-secret documents from the White House after he lost the election and stored them at Mar-a-Lago. Some of the sensitive materials inside Trump’s desk and in a basement where visitors were able to wander, and the FBI is looking into how the documents could have compromised national security.
The big question is what Trump intended to do with the documents. Thirsty will monitor this ongoing blockbuster story of the former president.
