“We are requesting an immediate harm assessment in connection with the information that Trump took secret information and stored it on his estate,” RIA Novosti quotes the text of a letter from lawmakers addressed to Director of National Intelligence Avril Haynes.

The text of the document notes that the assessment is necessary in connection with the published facts.

Following its results, lawmakers call for a closed briefing for congressmen.

Politico previously reported that the FBI was investigating Trump for potential violations of the espionage law.

It is with this that the searches in his estate Mar-a-Lago are connected.

Before that, Trump said that FBI agents searched his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Agents found 11 sets of classified documents.
