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.

  1. Anything between Trump’s attorneys and Trump is now in the hands of the FBI they wanted to know what he was up to so they can put a counter offensive Joe Biden is aware but he’s going to play stupid he doesn’t have to play hard to do that plain and simple if Trump wants all this aggravation to go away all he has to do say I’m not running and watch what happens because that’s what they want they are afraid of trump because he is not part of the good old boy politician gang … And to them he’s a loose cannon he knows secrets they want to see what kind of documents he has on other politicians and that’s what they’re afraid of he has the dirt on them.

    • U r incorrect if President Trump were 2 say I’m done, I’m not running in 2024, they will not stop. They r interested in destroying Trump completely and totally. Then they will come after u and me…

    • That’s exactly why they seized all of the documents. They want to know what he knows along with trying to find or make-up dirt/documents to insert a plant to indict and prosecute him. More dirty schemes by the deep state. Wrap-up smear!

  2. The DOJ is denying a third party “master” to look at the records sounds “Stalin”like to me‼️ Does anybody this this is on the up & up⁉️ President Trump& his attorneys need to file a law suit for 1 BILLON $$ for deformation of character .. trespassing, breaking & entering unlawfully into his place of Residence & Business..
    Also Marxist tactics these people are done as a political party the Democrats are finished ‼️When the midterms are over noble will ever take them seriously again & the Marxist Obstructionist can never hold power over the American people again‼️

  3. Destroy and ruin even assassinate our enemy opponent. This is the tactics of an evil regime. No one is safe! If they can do this to him, they will do it to us. No one is safe or free anymore. They have pushed this to the ultimate. It sounds like Russian tactics of throwing acid in your opponents face.

  4. So they took evidence that proved the FBI planted evidence against Trump in the Cross Fire Hurricane conspiracy. The same FBI personnel that planted evidence on those accused in the MI Gov. Gretchen Whitmer kidnap hoax headed up the MAL raid. See where this is headed… BTW if you follow the MI case the FBI’s evidence has completely failing apart.

    • I’ve heard that Trump is playing 3-D Chess. I am sure he has made copies of the some of the documents. It is made out that Trump is the bad guy and all he wants is the Truth. The progressives and lame stream media are the trouble makers.

  5. Get rid of this Tyranical Administration, and get rid of FBI. Instead create a new Police Force, where they do not do investigations. It’s out of hand, because of abuse of power.

  6. Amazing… Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping hoax. What a joke. When this scam was announced by the corrupt msm, I thought this is so fake. Who wood want 2 kidnap Gretchen ? Absolutely no one !

  7. Trump has already said, what we already know, that it would all go away if he said he wouldn’t run for President. He is the shield standing in the way for the American people getting attacked. The only way this stops is a REVOLUTION from the American people. I don’t trust voting because the Dems are liars snd cheats. The are also EVIL and hate America. I hope Trump can survive this onslaught of pure evil.

  8. For years I’ve lost faith and credibility for this government. This isn’t helping at all. It all started when Kennedy was murdered. Just a slippery slope since then.

    • Bingo! The dark secret at the heart of the American political system is the sad fact that CIA elements and their Mafia allies carried out the 1963 assassination of Pres. Kennedy. They did so at the behest of Lyndon B. Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover and Allen Dulles, and the oligarchical interests they represented, who then leveraged the White House, FBI, and Warren Commission to cover up the conspiracy. The FBI and CIA have operated with impunity ever since, simply by invoking the trope of “national security.”

      This is the Deep State. It has just deposed Pres. Trump through massive election fraud and judicial intimidation. It operates much like Iran’s Council of Guardians as an unelected, unaccountable, self-styled fourth branch of government, neutralizing threats like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, backing its own uni-party candidates like GHW Bush and Barack Obama, and manipulating the American people and world events through its Mockingbird media and false flag operations, like the second Tonkin Gulf Incident, the attack on USS LIBERTY, and 9/11. It does not serve American interests but only oligarchical interests, many of which are not even American. In short, it has no real legitimacy now whatsoever. It is treason that must be extirpated root and branch.

  9. Keep your eyes open and your cell phones handy at the polling places . If the republicans were proactive for a change they would have a ton of volunteer observers at the polling places all briefed by a lawyer on what they can do and say, all with phone numbers to call if they see or suspect anything suspicious. But of course they won’t .

  10. FBI was ALREADY IN Trump’s HOME when his Lawyer got there… then She WASN’T ABLE to accompany them to check WHAT THEY WERE TAKING!! If THEY can do this to a former President….WHERE do we stand…
