Trump is in big trouble… The former US president had transferred confidential and sensitive information from the White House to his home in Florida

Former President Donald Trump passed classified information to his Florida home after leaving the White House, the US General Administration of Archives and Records said in a letter to Congress on Friday.

The Archives said it notified the Department of Justice, which will handle any investigation into the 15 boxes of documents recently recovered by the Department.

“The US General Administration of Archives and Records has identified materials that are classified national security information inside the boxes,” US archivist David Ferrero said in a letter to Democratic Representative Carolyn Maloney, chair of the House Oversight Committee.

Maloney’s commission is looking into Trump’s handling of the records.

The Republican president left office in January 2021.

“These new findings deepen my concern about former President Trump’s blatant disregard for federal records laws and the potential impact on our historical record,” Maloney said in a statement.

“The public archives have not found anything, and have been given, upon request, presidential records in a normal and routine process to ensure the preservation of my heritage and in accordance with the Presidential Records Act,” Trump said in a written statement.

“If it was anyone other than ‘Trump,’ there would be no story,” he said.

The Washington Post reported last week that some of the documents transferred to House have been classified as classified, which could increase the legal pressure that Trump or his aides may face.

The Presidential Records Act requires the preservation of memos, letters, notes, emails, faxes, and other written communications relating to the president’s official duties.

Trump filed an unsuccessful lawsuit to block the release of records from the White House, including the House committee investigating the Jan 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol by Trump supporters.
