Document seized from Trump’s home outlines foreign government’s nuclear capabilities, Post says

A document outlining a foreign government’s military defenses, including its nuclear capabilities, was found during an FBI raid last month at former President Donald Trump’s Florida home. The Washington Post reported Tuesday.

The Post report, which cites people familiar with the matter, did not identify the foreign government referred to in the document, or indicate whether the foreign government was friendly or hostile to the United States.

Representatives for Trump and the Justice Department did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment.

After a previous Post article about classified documents containing nuclear weapons information, Trump compared the investigation to previous ones, calling it a hoax.

The FBI recovered more than 11,000 government documents and photographs during its Aug. 8 search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, court records show.

According to the Post report, some of the documents seized detail top-secret US operations that require special clearances, not just top-secret clearances.

Some of the documents are so restricted that even some of the Biden administration’s top national security officials were not authorized to review them, the Post said.

The US Department of Justice is investigating Trump for removing government documents from the White House when he left in January 2021 and storing them at Mar-a-Lago.

On Monday, a federal judge granted Trump’s request to appoint a special master to review records seized during the FBI’s search, a move that could delay the Justice Department’s criminal investigation.
