FBI agents raided former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on August 8. They spent dozens of hours rifling through his possessions and household, as well as items belonging to his wife and family members.
At the time, the reason for the entry was sealed. An affidavit later released was fully censored.
What we do know is the feds claim Trump was in potential breach of the Presidential Records Act and the raid was carried out due to this.
In particular, stories leaked that Trump may have stolen or kept nuclear secrets that were unauthorized to be removed from the White House. Now, more information is emerging about what went down and what was seized.
What Was Seized?
At this point, we still do not know exactly what was seized. What we do know is the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) is getting ready to look over what Trump was keeping.
However, the complicating factor here is a judge said she’ll allow Trump to have a special individual who reviews the documents and sees if any were seized illegally. Some of what was seized, for example, may be legal documents that were secret between Trump and his attorneys.
This creates something of a contradiction. The feds already had Trump’s materials now for 21 days. With the Office of the DNI now about to look them over, we have a lot of sharks swimming around in the same tank.
Specifically, we do know there were 184 classified documents seized from Mar-a-Lago, 67 of which were confidential, 92 of which were secret, and 25 of which were top secret, eyes only, and codeword.
All we know for sure is the raid was done under a police state pretext; the American people are being kept fully in the dark.
What we also know is due to the secret nature of what’s going on, the Biden regime is now telling us what is true…according to them.

Was National Security Really Harmed?
The ODNI is going to be assessing whether national security was harmed. The problem with this is huge. The ODNI head, Avril Haines, is a lackey of former anti-Trump insane person John Brennan, who led a witch hunt of Trump supporters after January 6.
This fanatical liberal Brennan vowed to hunt down anyone who even took a selfie with “laser-like” precision, while ignoring the BLM riots that burned down America’s cities in 2020.
Now his successor is going to head up a review of what the FBI managed to grab while storming Trump’s property?
How do we have any assurance that the accusations they’ll lodge against Trump aren’t exaggerated or, even worse, entirely falsified?
This is the same Deep State which tried to work up a Russia conspiracy for four years and lies through its teeth day and night.
Federal judge in Florida says she's inclined to grant Trump's request to appoint a special master to do a privilege review of seized Mar-a-Lago docs, but it's not a final decision — hearing set for 9/1.
