Newspaper: Document confiscated from Trump's home describes foreign government's nuclear capabilities
Some of the documents found at Trump's residence were top secret.
The Washington Post reported yesterday that one of the classified documents seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) at the residence of former President Donald Trump, in Florida, contains a description of the nuclear capabilities and military defenses of a foreign power.
Citing unnamed sources familiar with the case, the newspaper said that some of the documents found at Trump's residence in Mar-a-Lago were so secret that the president and government officials, or close to that, might be allowed to authorize other government officials to view them. .
He did not mention the name of the country whose defense and nuclear capabilities were mentioned in the document.
The "Washington Post" reported that documents of this type require special permits, based on the need to know, rather than a normal permit to declassify.
The details did not reveal the whereabouts of these sensitive materials in the house, which is also used as a private club, nor about the security surrounding it.
Trump faces mounting legal pressure, with the Justice Department saying "top secret" documents were "likely hidden" to impede the FBI's investigation into Trump's possible mishandling of classified material.
When FBI agents searched the Mar-a-Lago resort on August 8, they found classified documents so sensitive that "FBI counterintelligence agents and Department of Justice attorneys needed additional clearances before they were allowed to view specific documents." As stated in the court file.
In the 15 boxes handed over by Trump, 184 documents were found bearing the words "secret" or "top secret."
