Prosecutors launched a grand jury investigation into Trump’s handling of classified White House documents stored at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

The National Archives in February asked the Justice Department to investigate Trump’s handling of White House records after it raided Mar-a-Lago in January and took 15 boxes of documents.

The National Archives previously claimed classified records were found in Trump’s boxes at Mar-a-Lago.

“NARA has identified items marked as classified national security information within the boxes,” Ferriero wrote, responding to a question from the House, according to CNN. “Because NARA identified classified information in the boxes, NARA staff has been in communication with the Department of Justice.”

The classified material found by the National Archives was stored in the SCIF and it is not unusual for a former president to be in possession of classified documents.

Furthermore, a US president can declassify material at any time.

According to the New York Times, federal prosecutors launched a grand jury investigation into whether Trump mishandled the classified records.

Prosecutors sent a subpoena to the National Archives to retrieve the boxes of documents, the New York Times reported citing two people briefed on the matter.
