The nothing burger that appeared to be the case in the FBI raid against Trump may have just taken a significant turn for the worse for the former president.
The Washington Post, again citing anonymous sources, offered insight into some of the classified documents that were removed from Trump’s home.
If the report is accurate, it significantly raises the seriousness of the indictment I expect to come against Trump.
One of the reasons Trump’s legal team had requested the Special Master is because it was worried that the DOJ would selectively leak different aspects of the investigation to paint Trump in a more negative light.
That appears to be what is happening here.
The WaPo report cited its sources as confirming that some of the documents that were removed from Trump’s home contained foreign government military defense and nuclear capabilities.
This is a huge problem for Trump in the court of public opinion.
There was simply no reason for him to have these documents for his library, memoir, or any other reason that he could possibly come up with to explain their presence.
Even though the FBI reportedly took more than 11,000 documents, there were less than 200 that fell into classified territory.
Many of those were lower level, so most people were shaking this off as nothing more than a political attack against the former president.
If these documents were among the documents that Trump took, they could start to sway people’s opinions on the matter.
We will continue to monitor this and report any new developments in the case.
