Last week, the F.B.I. took the extraordinary step of searching Mar-a-Lago, former President Donald J. Trump’s private club and Florida home. Their goal? To find materials he was thought to have improperly removed from the White House, including classified documents.
An inventory of the material taken from the search showed that agents seized 11 sets of documents with some type of confidential or secret marking on them.
We explore some of the latest developments in the case.
Items removed from Mar-a-Lago included files marked as top secret and meant to be viewed only in secure government facilities, according to a copy of the search warrant.Credit…Giorgio Viera/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images
