The raid on former U.S. President Donald Trump’s (2017 – 2021) home last Monday aimed to find classified documents on nuclear weaponry that the former president allegedly removed from the White House, according to The Washington Post on Thursday.
The Post, which cited anonymous sources close to the investigation, said the raid responds to concerns in the US government that the documents that Trump took with him when he left the presidency contain sensitive information that could fall into the wrong hands. The sources did not clarify whether the information allegedly found in Trump’s house was related to nuclear weapons held by the U.S. or foreign powers, nor did they detail whether this material was indeed found. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland authorized the decision to request the search warrant last Monday to Trump’s residence in Florida. He asked Thursday for authorization from a southern state court to make the warrant public.In a brief statement after which he did not take any questions, Garland argued for the legality of the search and noted that these decisions are not made lightly.

A federal court authorized the search warrant, and the property inventory is a document that federal law requires law enforcement to provide to the property owner.

Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump accepted Friday the request made by Attorney General Merrick Garland and encouraged the immediate publication of the search warrant to his home.
