Trump's estate, according to journalists, could contain top-secret information that poses a threat to U.S. national security.
FBI detectives searched the residence of former U.S. President Donald Trump, trying to find documents related to the nuclear program. This was reported by The Washington Post, citing knowledgeable sources.
The story says the unusual investigative actions at the Florida residence underscore "the deep concern of government officials about sensitive information" about nuclear weapons that could fall into the wrong hands.
Insiders speaking to The WP did not give details about what kind of information FBI detectives wanted to find from former U.S. President Donald Trump. Moreover, the interlocutors did not specify whether they were talking about nuclear weapons, which belong to the United States or another state.
"Material about nuclear weapons is particularly sensitive and usually available to a limited range of government officials. Disclosure of details about U.S. weapons could provide an intelligence roadmap for adversaries seeking to develop ways to counter these systems. Other countries might view the disclosure of their nuclear secrets as a threat," the story says.
A former employee of the U.S. Justice Department in communication with reporters suggested that Donald Trump's residence may hold top-secret documents, which would cause the current government to try to return information that poses a threat to the national security of the state as quickly as possible.
The WP notes that as Attorney General Merrick Garland was being briefed, an armed man named Ricky Schieffer tried to break into the FBI headquarters in Ohio. Negotiations with the assailant failed, causing law enforcement to have to shoot the intruder. Following the incident, investigators are looking into a possible connection between the shooter and extremist groups who were involved in the January 2021 attack on the Capitol.
According to reporters, a user with the last name Schiffer on the TruthSocial social network created by Donald Trump posted a message calling for armed resistance to law enforcement and authorities.
"People, this is the end. Get out of work tomorrow as soon as the gun store/army/fleet store/ pawn store opens, buy everything you need to be ready to fight. We shouldn't have to put up with this. For 2 years they have accustomed us to putting up with tyranny and thinking there is nothing we can do. This time we must respond with force," said a message published after Attorney General Garland's briefing, during which the official talked about the searches at Donald Trump's residence.
Recall, on August 8, the American media reported that FBI detectives conducted searches at the residence of former President Donald Trump. According to journalists, law enforcement officers wanted to find documents marked "secret" in the course of the proceedings.
It was also reported that FBI detectives conducted a separate search of the closet of the wife of former U.S. President Melania Trump.
