Donald Trump news today: FBI found foreign nation’s nuclear secrets at Mar-a-Lago, report says

Eric Trump says father Donald too ‘neat’ to leave top secret papers lying around office floor

FBI agents found a document describing the foreign government’s military defences, including its nuclear capabilities, when they searched Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last month, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday night.

The revelation could severely undercut Mr Trump’s defense projects that the documents are harmless or meant for a future presidential library or other.

Meanwhile, former Donald Trump strategist Steve Bannon is expected to surrender to New York state prosecutors on Thursday to face a new criminal indictment, according to reports.

This comes just weeks after a federal jury convicted him of two counts of criminal contempt of Congress for intentionally defying a subpoena related to the assault on the US Capitol last year.

And the former secretary of state Hillary Clinton told CBS News that she believes Mr Trump led and encouraged a criminal seditious conspiracy against the US, comparing Mr Trump’s reaction to losing in 2020 to his own measured response to losing the 2016 election.
