EXCLUSIVE: The FBI seized boxes containing records covered by attorney-client privilege and potentially executive privilege during its raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News, adding that the Justice Department opposed Trump lawyers’ request for the appointment of an independent, special master to review the records.
Sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News Saturday that the former president’s team was informed that boxes labeled A-14, A-26, A-43, A-13, A-33, and a set of documents—all seen on the final page of the FBI’s property receipt —contained information covered by attorney-client privilege.
The article goes on to state the following:
The FBI seized classified records from Trump’s Palm Beach home during its unprecedented Monday morning raid, including some marked as top secret. But the former president is disputing the classification, saying the records have been declassified.
Sources said “some records could be covered by executive privilege,” the outlet reported. The president of the United States and other officials within the executive branch would have the “authority to withhold certain sensitive forms of advice and consultation between the president and senior advisors.”
It isn’t known whether the records taken by the FBI included communications between Trump and any of his attorneys, private or official.
The sources told Fox News that questions on attorney-client privilege prompted Trump’s team to ask the Justice Department “whether they would support a third party, independent special master to review those records.” According to the sources, the DOJ said they would oppose that request.
So the documents the FBI “planted” in Mar-a-Lago were already declassified by #DonaldTrump (formidable prescience) and are also covered by attorney-client privilege. Hope you’re keeping up..https://t.co/E0W8vgMVVR
