 Last month’s search warrant raid of Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s Florida home, allegedly netted the FBI classified and unclassified records. And the judge says that a Special-master should be able to sort out all the details.

According to the Privilege Review Team Report from the DOJ “, the seized materials include medical documents, correspondence related to taxes, and accounting information.” The search and seizure also took in some passports and other miscellaneous personal items.

The report/inventory by the DOJ says they seized approximately 11,000 documents and 1,800 other items from Trump’s residence.
