The warrant therefore permitted the FBI to take possession of all the boxes in the storage room where agents found more than 11,000 government-owned documents, including some documents which the government described as so highly classified that Department of Justice officials reviewing them needed to obtain additional security clearances.
According to legal experts, the reason FBI agents would need to seize boxes found alongside the classified or other government-owned records is to establish whether Mr Trump was storing them alongside his own personal property, which would be a violation of US law.
Yet Mr Trump is continuing to falsely accuse agents of seizing property without authorisation.
Writing on his Truth Social platform, Mr Trump said recent court filings by the government have shown agents “improperly took [his] complete and highly confidential medical file and history, with all the bells and whistles”.
The ex-president, whose last physical examination established him to be clinically obese, said “at least” the aforementioned medical records would show him to be “very healthy” and “an absolutely perfect physical specimen”.
Mr Trump also accused FBI agents of seizing personal tax records that were “illegal to take” despite a warrant authorising them to do so, as well as “lawyer/client/privileged information”.
He concluded his rant by comparing the search to the “days of the Soviet Union” even though that defunct communist country would not have required a judge to sign off on a search of his home.
