Eleven sets of classified documents were recovered from Trump’s Florida resort during an FBI search on Monday, part of a trove of about two dozen boxes of secret and top-secret documents, according to an inventory that was released alongside the warrant.

The Justice Department also expressed concern that Trump may have violated regulations related to the handling of government documents, including regulations that could lead to charges of attempting to hide or destroy government documents regardless of whether it is marked confidential or not.

Former President Donald Trump said that these documents have all been decrypted and stored in a safe place. He said that the FBI could have it anytime they wanted without playing politics and breaking into Mar-a-Lago.
