A lesser version of the previously released affidavit was unsealed by a federal judge in Florida on Tuesday.
These new revelations confirm for the first time that documents related to these sensitive programs were returned to the US government as part of the June subpoena. Previous court filings indicated that when Trump voluntarily returned 15 boxes of material to the National Archives in January, 184 documents were classified, including those with the same HCS, SI and FISA labels, as well as other classification marks.
Most of the information in the newly sealed document has already been released to the public, but a less verbose version of the affidavit offers some new details about the investigation.
The now-redacted denials in the search warrant affidavit shed new light on the grand jury subpoena that federal investigators used to obtain surveillance tapes from Trump’s company as prosecutors probed the possible tampering with classified files at Mar-a-Lago.
A federal judge previously said this subpoena was issued on June 24. The unredacted filing said the subpoena required the Trump Organization to return “all surveillance video, photographs and/or CCTV from internal cameras located on the ground.” floor (basement)” between January 10 and June 24 of this year.
Trump’s representatives complied with the subpoena on July 6 by giving FBI agents a hard drive, according to the filing. It’s known that the Trump Organization turned over the surveillance footage, but the new filing adds some details about how and when they did it.
