NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Documents the FBI seized in its raid of former President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago included information about a foreign country’s nuclear capabilities, the Washington Post has reported.

Among the materials taken by federal authorities, people familiar told the Post, was a document that provided descriptions of the other nation’s military defenses, including nuclear.

The Justice Department and FBI declined to comment when reached by Fox News.

The document is among more than 100 with classified information taken in the August 8 raid. This is in addition to more than 200 that Trump and his team had previously turned over earlier this year.

Trump attorney Christopher Kise criticized leaks about the investigation, saying they “continue with no respect for the process nor any regard for the real truth,” which “does not serve well the interests of justice.”

Kise added that a “responsible course of action here would be for someone — anyone — in the government to exercise leadership and control.”

The Post’s report follows a federal judge’s decision to appoint an independent special master to go through the seized documents to review them for information protected by attorney-client privilege or executive privilege. Judge Aileen M. Cannon’s decision came after the DOJ revealed their privilege review team had already gone through the documents and found a “limited” number of documents they found to be privileged.
