Schiff Wants Intel Chiefs to Assess 'Security Threat' of Mar-a-Lago Document Storage

With the news of an unprecedented raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate still dominating the news cycle, Democratic lawmakers are working overtime in order to not squander this opportunity to slander the presumptive Republican nominee for 2024.

Leading the effort this week is longtime anti-Trump Representative Adam Schiff, who along with Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, are seeking a condemnation of the former Commander in Chief from the Biden administration’s intelligence officials.

The House Democrats’ top investigators on Saturday asked the director of National Intelligence to conduct a review and damage assessment of the boxes of highly classified information seized by the FBI this week from former president Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

The letter was sent to National Intelligence Director Avril Haines by House Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) and cites the search warrant cataloguing the classified documents of various levels of sensitivity found at Mar-a-Lago.

“Former President Trump’s conduct has potentially put our national security at grave risk,” the two wrote, asking also for a classified briefing on the assessment as soon as possible. “This issue demands a full review, in addition to the ongoing law enforcement inquiry.”

The letter also pushed the “nuclear” document narrative that has been prevalent within the mainstream media.

The two also voiced concern that the FBI is looking in part at highly classified documents related to nuclear weapons, as first reported by The Washington Post.

“If this report is true, it is hard to overstate the national security danger that could emanate from the reckless decision to remove and retain this material,” the letter states.

Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in the matter, warning that the FBI’s brazen breach of Mar-a-Lago may very well be a political “witch hunt” designed to gather information to be used against him as he prepares for a 2024 reelection campaign.
