The FBI returned to former U.S. President Donald Trump the passports it took during the search of the Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach (Florida), according to a spokesman for the federal agency to Fox network.

A spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation assured that the FBI searches and requisitions the material ordered by the judge and then returns the one it does not need to keep for the objectives of the investigation.

Trump had denounced on Monday, in a message on his network, Truth Social, that the FBI “stole” three passports, one of them already expired, in the search carried out last week to his Florida mansion in search of classified documents.

“Wow! In the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago they stole my three passports (one expired) along with everything else. This is an assault on a political opponent on a level never before seen in our country. Third world!” wrote Trump.

The FBI spokesman told Fox that there were two expired passports.
