On Friday, a detailed list of items taken during the FBI’s raid on President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home was released by a federal judge. According to a report from the Washington Examiner, Judge Aileen Cannon gave the order to unseal the inventory list in Florida on Thursday.

According to the detailed property inventory report from the court, several items were seized, including government documents, boxes, books, newspapers, magazines, and even clothing.

For example, the court report cited numerous magazines, newspapers, press articles, and other printed media. The report also separated inventory into 33 itemized categories that listed the locations from which agents took subcategorized items.

This new list of items comes hot on the heels of legal dueling between the DOJ and President Trump’s attorneys in a dispute centered on Trump’s request to appoint a special master to oversee the documents that the FBI seized during the raid.

RSBN reported Trump’s legal team had made a largely constitutional argument that asserts the 45th president’s Fourth Amendment rights have been violated. The Fourth Amendment ensures American citizens are secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures.

According to the Washington Examiner, Judge Aileen Cannon has not yet made a ruling on that request at this time.

Furthermore, the inventory of seized items indicated that most of the documents taken from Mar-a-Lago were unclassified.

In late August, the FBI shared a photo showing “top secret” documents spread across the carpet of Mar-a-Lago, perhaps in an attempt to make it look as if the documents were in an unsecured location.

President Trump himself called out the bureau for the photo, blasting the “terrible way” they “threw documents all over the floor (perhaps pretending it was me that did it!), and started taking pictures of them for the public to see.”
