Judge Releases More ‘Detailed Inventory’ of Documents Seized at Mar-a-Lago


A federal judge on Friday unsealed a more detailed inventory of what the FBI seized from Mar-a-Lago in August.

Judge Aileen Cannon, the Trump-appointed judge who is still deciding whether to appoint a special master to review the seized documents, unsealed more inventory.

The new inventory included personal items like clothes, books, and news articles.

The so-called ‘classified’ documents shown in the staged photo earlier this week were found alongside 43 empty folders marked classified.

ABC News reported:

The expanded property list gives further detail of the volume of material seized by agents in the search and how it was intermingled with seemingly innocuous items such as newspaper clippings, photographs, books and clothing. It describes hundreds upon hundreds of U.S. government documents collected by investigators without any classification markings that were grouped in some cases with only a few documents that bore classification markings ranging from Confidential to Top Secret/SCI (Sensitive compartmented information).

The inventory also reveals the government seized a number of folders they acknowledge were empty, but either had "CLASSIFIED" banners on them or were labeled "Return to Staff Secretary/Military Aide."

From Trump's office alone, there were 43 empty folders seized with classified banners and 28 labeled 'Return to Staff Secretary/Military Aide.' In the storage room, another 19 empty folders seized were either labeled classified or 'Return to Staff Secretary/Military Aide.'

It raises the question as to whether agents were successful at seizing all the classified materials at issue in their search.

ABC News has previously reported that as part of their investigation the FBI remains concerned about classified records that could still be missing even after their search of Mar-a-Lago.

Separately from the more than 100 documents with classified marking seized by DOJ in their search, the property inventory also reveals that agents gathered more than 11,000 documents or photographs without classification markings, all described as property of the U.S. government.
