Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States, reacted to a Florida court’s unsealing of the FBI’s search warrant affidavit, which turned out to be heavily redacted.
“Affidavit heavily redacted!!!” Trump said on Truth Social. “Nothing mention on ‘Nuclear,’ a total public relations subterfuge by the FBI & DOJ, or our close working relationship regarding document turnover — WE GAVE THEM MUCH.”
“Judge Bruce Reinhart should NEVER have allowed the Break-In of my home,” he added. “He recused himself two months ago from one of my cases based on his animosity and hatred of your favorite President, me. What changed? Why hasn’t he recused himself on this case? Obama must be very proud of him right now!”
Donald Trump also mocked the release of the ‘heavily redacted’ search warrant affidavit with four words that the FBI ‘forgot.’

The Washington Post ‘reported’ three days after the Trump raid that the FBI was allegedly searching for classified materials related to the United States’ nuclear weapons program.
“Classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items FBI agents sought in a search of former president Donald Trump’s Florida residence on Monday, according to people familiar with the investigation,” WaPo reported.
“Experts in classified information said the unusual search underscores deep concern among government officials about the types of information they thought could be located at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and potentially in danger of falling into the wrong hands,” the Post proffered.
“The people who described some of the material that agents were seeking spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation,” the Post continued. “They did not offer additional details about what type of information the agents were seeking, including whether it involved weapons belonging to the United States or some other nation. Nor did they say if such documents were recovered as part of the search. A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Justice Department and FBI declined to comment.”
A day later, Donald Trump unloaded on the alleged ‘bombshell’ reports that he allegedly hid classified nuclear weapons documents at his Mar-A-Lago home for over 18 months after leaving his office.
“Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more,” Trump said on his social media post. “Same sleazy people involved. Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-a-Lago with our lawyer’s, or others, present. Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close – said “ABSOLUTELY NOT.” Planting information anyone? Reminds me of a Christopher Steele Dossier!”
The Department of Justice, nor the FBI, have substantiated that there were “nuclear secrets” among the documents seized at Mar-a-Lago, although it has now reported that 184 documents with ‘classified’ markings were in the “fifteen boxes” taken from the residence. The Trump legal team has argued that the former president had a standing order that the documents taken to his home had already been ‘declassified.’
