Surveillance footage obtained by the Justice Department reveals that Donald Trump may still have hidden classified documents in his possession despite the successful execution of a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago earlier this week.

The FBI seized boxes of classified materials at Trump’s Florida compound on Monday according to a copy of the warrant released on Friday. Not only was Trump reportedly in possession of classified nuclear weapons documents, he illegally took signals intelligence with him as well when he left the White House in January 2021.

Trump’s supporters claim he declassified the documents but there’s no official documentation of him ever doing so. A president can’t just whisper the word “declassified” over the documents to magically declassify them. There’s a process to follow.

While the FBI recovered boxes of classified materials, it turns out that Trump may still have others in his possession hidden elsewhere all while Trump’s lawyers insist that nothing is missing.

The problem is that the Justice Department obtained surveillance footage from Mar-a-Lago showing boxes being moved in and out of the storage room where they found the classified documents, with some footage occurring just after the DOJ had been in contact with Trump’s legal team prior to the warrant.

According to the New York Times:

The Justice Department also subpoenaed surveillance footage from Mar-a-Lago recorded over a 60-day period, including views from outside the storage room. According to a person briefed on the matter, the footage showed that, after one instance in which Justice Department officials were in contact with Mr. Trump’s team, boxes were moved in and out of the room. That activity prompted concern among investigators about the handling of the material. It is not clear when precisely the footage was from during the lengthy back-and-forth between Justice Department officials and Mr. Trump’s advisers, or whether the subpoena to Mr. Trump seeking additional documents had already been issued.

This means Trump could have moved classified documents to another location in order to hide them from the Justice Department and the FBI. It makes one wonder if Trump used the death of his ex-wife to hide classified documents in her grave at his golf course in Bedminster. Perhaps the FBI should start there.

Again, this is a serious breach of national security. If Trump still has classified documents in his possession, he continues to be an ongoing threat. He could be trying to sell what he has left right now.

Trump may be a former president, but he is not above the law. He needs to be prosecuted for violating the Espionage Act, the Presidential Records Act, and for obstructing a federal investigation. And that’s on top of the FBI and DOJ turning his entire life upside down in the search to recover any classified documents that are still missing.
