Trump calls on FBI to return 'executive' and 'privileged' documents seized by FBI from Mar-a-Lago search
- Trump on Sunday called on the FBI to return documents seized during the Mar-a-Lago raid.
- The former President claimed that the seized documents were privileged material under attorney-client.
Former President Trump on Sunday called on the FBI to return the documents seized from his estate in Mar-a-Lago, claiming some of them to be privileged, attorney-client material.
"Oh great!" Trump wrote on Truth Social, according to The Hill. "It has just been learned that the FBI, in its now famous raid of Mar-a-Lago, took boxes of privileged 'attorney-client' material, and also 'executive' privileged material, which they knowingly should not have taken,"
"By copy of this TRUTH, I respectfully request that these documents be immediately returned to the location from which they were taken," Trump added, per The Hill.
Federal agents took 11 sets of classified documents during the raid on the former President's Mar-a-Lago estate, some of which were marked as top secret and only meant to be stored in special government facilities and a handwritten note, granting Roger Stone clemency.
There is no indication that agents seized any non-governmental documents.
Despite the FBI findings, one of Trump's lawyers signed a statement in June telling the Justice Department that all classified materials had been returned.
