The FBI used the search warrant and seizure warrant to raid Donald Trump’s Florida estate Mar-a-Lago as a justification. It was unsealed Friday afternoon.
On August 5, US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart signed the warrant, and agents were allowed to execute it until August 19. Agents were granted permission to seize contraband, the fruit of crime, and other illegally possessed items in violation of 18 U.S.C. SSSS 793 or 2071 or 1519. Title 18 US Code Section 793 refers to espionage.
Attachment A lists the properties to be searched.
The property to be searched at 1100 S Ocean Blvd in Palm Beach, FL 33480 is also described as a club, resort, or residence near the intersection of Southern Blvd. The mansion is described as having approximately 58 bedrooms and 33 bathrooms on a 17-acre estate. The “45 Office”, all storage rooms, and any other areas of the premises that FPOTUS or his staff used or made available for them, as well as all boxes or documents, are the locations to search. This includes all structures and buildings on the estate. It excludes areas that are currently occupied, rented, or used by third parties (such Mar-a-Largo Members), and which are not used or available for FPOTUS or his staff.
Attachment B lists the property that will be seized — and Merrick Garland claims there is a limited list of items. However, it’s very broad as shown in point C.
All documents and records that are physical, which can be used as evidence, contraband, the fruit of crime, or any other illegally obtained items in violation of 18 U.S.C. SSSS 793, 2071 et 1519 include the following:
a. Any physical documents that have classification markings. Also, any containers/boxes (including other contents) in the locations of such documents.
b. Information, including communications, about the retrieval, storage, or transmission of classified national defense information or material.
c. All government and/or presidential records created between January 20, 2017, and January 20, 2021
d. Evidence of knowing alteration, destruction, or concealment of government or Presidential Records or documents bearing classification markings.
Property receipts are documents that describe the property seized and are signed by Christina Bobb, Trump’s attorney.
