Reports by The New York times say that former United States President, Donald Trump, may be in serious trouble following disclosure by the National Archives. According to the news medium, US National Archives has revealed that he kept well over 700 pages of classified documents, including a number that are related to the nation’s most covert intelligence operations, in his private club and residence in Florida while leaving the White House in January 2021. The letter, Times disclosed, has been dispatched to the former president’s lawyers.

Dated May 10 and signed by the acting U.S. archivist, Debra Steidel Wall, and released on Tuesday, the letter catalogued the state of alarm in the Justice Department upon realizing how serious the documents were. It also pointed out that top department prosecutors and members of the intelligence community were delayed in conducting a damage assessment about the documents’ removal from the White House because Mr. Trump’s lawyers tried to argue that some of them might have been protected by executive privilege.

The news medium reported on Monday that investigators recovered more than 300 documents with classified markings from Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and private club, each document potentially comprising multiple pages.

It further reported that the letter could further implicate Trump in a potential crime, noting for instance, that the former president had kept at Mar-a-Lago documents related to Special Access Programs, which are some of the nation’s most closely guarded secrets, before the F.B.I. searched the property.
