An “independent” expert will review classified files found on Trump during a raid. The Justice Department now wants to take action against a relevant decision.
The US Department of Justice has taken legal action against the FBI’s review of government documents seized from former President Donald Trump. The ministry announced on Thursday that it will appeal the relevant court decision on Monday.
According to the ruling, documents seized at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate will be examined by a special representative, and officials will stop examining the documents until then. The Justice Department wants to prevent this so as not to delay the investigation. The ministry argued that the documents belonged to the executive, not the former president.
Judge founded by Trump in 2020
Trump appointed Judge Aileen Cannon, who ruled in his favor in 2020. Trump responded to the Justice Department’s statements by praising the “brave and clever judge”.
Instead of fighting crime and corruption, the FBI and the Justice Department will spend millions of dollars and a lot of time and energy on their complaints, he wrote on his online service, Truth Social.
What was found in the raid on Trump’s home?
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, which is also the top law enforcement agency, several documents were seized during the August 8 raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion in Florida:
- 18 documents classified as “top secret”.
- 53 documents classified as “confidential”.
- 31 documents classified as “confidential”.
Seven of the top-secret documents, 17 of the classified documents, and three of the classified documents were in Trump’s office.
Document on nuclear weapons of another country
Trump is now suspected of violating an espionage law. It contains strict rules for the retention of national security documents.
Recently, there were reports in the press that a top-secret document on another country’s nuclear weapons was also found in Trump’s building. Presidents of the United States are required to turn over all official documents, including emails and letters, to the National Archives after leaving office.
Trump: Search “politically motivated”
The raid on Trump sparked fierce political debate in the United States. Trump has repeatedly described the search of his villa as politically motivated.
He accuses President Joe Biden’s Democrats of using the judiciary to prevent him from running for president again in 2024.
