The longer that Donald Trump remains alone in the 2024 GOP primary race, the more thorough and vindictive the efforts to defame him will become.
That’s because the guy who quashed about 3.5 potential WWIII situations while also guiding the American economy through both a mighty recovery and the perils of COVID, is somehow public enemy #1 for the Democrats…and some members of his own party.
Now, in what appears to be an effort to appease the federales that are currently targeting him, Trump’s legal team has conducted another search of his properties and uncovered some controversial keepsakes.
A search for documents carried out at the behest of former President Donald Trump’s attorneys turned up two documents with classified markings at a Florida storage facility, two people familiar with the documents told NBC News.
The documents were found recently in a facility not far from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort and were turned over to the FBI, the sources said, confirming a report published Wednesday in The Washington Post.
The discovery was part of a preemptive maneuver by the Trump legal team.
Trump’s lawyers hired an outside firm to conduct searches last month at the storage facility and other locations. The storage unit where the new documents were found was in West Palm Beach. The nature of the documents was not revealed. One of the sources said Trump has never been inside the storage facility.
The FBI declined to comment. Representatives for Trump also did not immediately return requests for comment.
The former President has insisted that there was no ill-will in the maintaining and storage of these documents, and has characterized the Biden administration’s continued focus on them as a “witch hunt”.
