The FBI agents who searched former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate Monday removed 11 sets of classified documents, including some marked as top secret and meant to be only available in special government facilities, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. The report also said agents took around 20 boxes of items, binders of photos, a handwritten note and the executive grant of clemency for Trump’s ally Roger Stone, according to a list of items removed from the property. Trump on Friday attempted to push back on a separate report that FBI agents searched his Mar-a-Lago residence for classified documents relating to nuclear weapons, saying in a social-media post that the “issue” is a hoax.
