Trump’s Mar-A-Lago has been searched by the FBI “in search of nuclear documents and other items” and Garland wants to unseal the warrant

The FBI raided Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort “to search for nuclear documents” and the Justice Department now wants the warrant unseal, reports say.

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced the news Thursday, just days after the raid on Trump’s Florida home.

Neither Trump nor the FBI have said what Monday’s search may have found.

It’s also unclear what exactly FBI agents were looking for when they searched the property at 6:30 a.m. Monday morning.

However, The Washington Post reported Thursday that agents were searching for documents related to nuclear weapons.

Federal authorities had to show a judge that there was evidence of a crime in order to obtain the search warrant.

Garland confirmed he agreed to the warrant, but did not provide any additional insight in a news conference Thursday.

TRUMP BLASTS RAID AS “WITCHES HUNT”

Trump has previously commented on the raid on his platform Truth Social, although he has not yet addressed the claims about nuclear documents.

He said his “lawyers and representatives fully cooperated prior to the raid” and went on to say that “very good relationships have been established”.

Trump also said government officials “could have whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted, if we had it.”

The former president called the raid a “witch hunt” and said “a great many agents” were present.

Traditionally, such documents remain sealed while an investigation is pending.

A motion filed on Thursday cites “clear and strong public interest” in the case as a reason for the warrant’s possible unsealing.

Trump can object to the release of the search warrant, in which case the Justice Department must notify the judge by Friday afternoon.
