The FBI Took 15 Boxes of Documents From Trump’s Residence
Trump’s attorney, Christina Bobb, said in a statement that the FBI “seized paper” in its search of the Palm Beach, Florida property, according to CNN. She also said Trump is cooperating with the investigation.
“President Trump and his legal team have been cooperative with FBI and DOJ officials every step of the way,” she said. “The FBI did conduct an unannounced raid and seized paper.”
Eric Trump, Trump’s son, spoke about the raid August 8 on Fox News and said the findings were meant to corroborate what was in his possession, based on what was in the National Archives. He told Fox that “the purpose of the raid, from what they said, was because the National Archives wanted to, you know, corroborate whether or not Donald Trump had any documents in his possession.”
