More Classified Documents Found At Trump Storage Facility

A search of a Florida storage facility on behalf of lawyers for former President Trump turned up two additional documents with classified markings. The documents were found at a facility in West Palm Beach near Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, where more than two dozen boxes of records were retrieved in a criminal investigation by the Justice Department, reports the Wall Street Journal. The two newly located documents were handed over to investigators. A spokesman for Trump, Steven Cheung, said, "President Trump and his counsel continue to be cooperative and transparent, despite the unprecedented, illegal, and unwarranted attack against President Trump and his family by the weaponized Department of Justice.” In October, prosecutors sought the return of what they believed to be more government documents in Trump's possession, and told his lawyers they didn’t believe his team had located all government documents the former president took with him as he left office. They expressed concern that Trump took documents on flights as he traveled from Mar-a-Lago to his other properties in New York and New Jersey. The search didn’t find any classified documents at the former president’s other properties. The West Palm Beach facility had received material taken from the Trump White House and transported by the federal General Services Administration.
