The 15 boxes included 184 specific documents marked classified, 67 of which were marked ¨confidential¨, 92 marked ¨secret¨ and 25 documents marked “top secret”, according to the affidavit.
Following the events, Trump posted on his social network Truth Social that he did “nothing wrong” and reiterated his hypothesis that he is victim of a judicial persecution.

The disclosure of the affidavit responds to the order of federal magistrate Bruce Reinhart, who determined important to make public the reasons that led to the Mar-a-Lago search past August 8.
Trump is currently in the political and media spotlight not only because of the FBI raid, but also because he is under scrutiny in another sets of investigations related to his businesses and also to his attempts to stay in power based on the rigged election theory.
