Mar-a-Lago Search Warrant Reveals 'Espionage Act' Concerns

Linkedin Share

For years now, the left has been attempting to paint Donald Trump as a danger to America’s national security, beginning all the way back in 2016 with the “RussiaGate” hoax.

In that sordid scandal, the FBI used a rove of unverifiable rumors known as the Steele Dossier to conjure a warrant that allowed the agency to covertly keep tabs on a number of members of Trump’s inner circle.

It has been revealed this week that the recent FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago was a result of an investigation into whether or not Donald Trump had violated the Espionage Act.

A search warrant newly unsealed on Friday reveals that the FBI is investigating Donald Trump for a potential violation of the Espionage Act and removed classified documents from the former president’s Florida estate earlier this week.

A receipt accompanying the search warrant, viewed by POLITICO in advance of its unsealing, shows that Trump possessed documents including a handwritten note; documents marked with “TS/SCI,” which indicates one of the highest levels of government classification; and another item labeled “Info re: President of France.”

There were other concerns as well:

The warrant shows federal law enforcement was investigating Trump for removal or destruction of records, obstruction of justice and violating the Espionage Act — which can encompass crimes beyond spying, such as the refusal to return national security documents upon request. Conviction under the statutes can result in imprisonment or fines.

Trump has repeatedly suggested that no wrongdoing has taken place, and has consistently blasted this probe as a “witch hunt”.
