Details emerge, the FBI has seized 'top secret' documents at

The FBI found documents labeled "top secret" from former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, foreign media reported.

The US Department of Justice confirmed the seizure, while also finding there is probable cause to believe Trump violated the Espionage Act, a federal law that prohibits the possession or transmission of national defense information.

A property receipt — a document prepared by federal agents to specify what was taken during a search — unsealed by the court shows that FBI agents took 11 sets of classified records from the estate.

The seized records include some that were marked classified and "top secret" — the highest level of classification reserved for the country's closest national security information.

FBI agents seized more than 30 items, including more than 20 boxes. In a statement, Trump claimed that the documents seized by agents were "all declassified" and argued that he would have turned over the documents to the Justice Department if asked.
