Former US President Donald Trump has a “last chance” before September 30 to show what evidence the FBI itself deposited when it raided his Mar-a-Lago resort home last month. American media reported.
During the Aug. 8 raid on the Florida estate, Trump reportedly said that FBI agents had deposited themselves there. The former president and his lawyers have repeated that claim several times in recent weeks without providing evidence.
An independent judge appointed by the court last week, former Judge Raymond Drury, is now giving Trump a “last chance” to find out exactly which documents are involved. By Monday, the administration must provide copies of all unclassified materials to Trump’s lawyers.
Next, Trump’s team must prepare a report indicating who else may have deposited what documents at Mar-a-Lago. Drury must review more than 11,000 government documents, some of which are highly classified.
Let the research continue
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Justice has been allowed to continue its investigation into classified documents found during the raid. A judge already ruled on Wednesday.
Criminal investigations include whether classified documents were withheld and whether there was an attempt to subvert a federal investigation. Both offenses are punishable. According to Trump, he confirmed during his presidency that the documents in question were no longer classified, but the court found no evidence.
