Leftists Are Losing Their Minds Over ‘Secret Room’ At Mar-A-Lago

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

ABC News reports that Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team interviewed several witnesses on a closet and a “hidden room” that FBI investigators did not access during their search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property in August 2022.

Smith is pressing charges against Trump for his possession of federal papers following his departure from the White House. According to the accusation, Trump deliberately impeded the federal government’s attempts to recover secret documents after he left office. Trump has been indicted in a federal court in Florida on over thirty counts, which include thirty violations of the Espionage Act. The ex-president entered a plea of not guilty for all charges.

According to a report by ABC News, Smith and his detectives are currently attempting to ascertain the presence of any remaining federal documents at Mar-a-Lago. Investigators allegedly uncovered that during a search for sensitive materials in a storage area, an attorney for Trump saw a situation where Trump had the locks on a closet altered.

As investigators would later learn, Trump allegedly had the closet’s lock changed while his attorney was in Mar-a-Lago’s basement, searching for classified documents in a storage room that he was told would have all such documents. Trump’s alleged efforts to conceal classified documents from both the FBI and his own attorney are a key part of Smith’s indictment against Trump in Florida.

Despite being aware of its existence, the agents neglected to investigate the closet.

Additionally, according to sources, ABC News said that investigators failed to detect a concealed room on the premises.

Though agents searched Trump’s bedroom, a small door in one of the walls was concealed behind a large dresser and a big TV, sources said. The space behind the wall was the “hidden room,” which maintenance workers sporadically entered to access cables running through it, sources said.

ABC News said agents were not aware of the “hidden room” until after they left.

In January 2022, the National Archives arranged for the return of government documents at Mar-a-Lago following talks with Trump’s representatives. Those representatives said they would continue to search the property for additional documents.

The FBI executed a search warrant at the property after an attorney for Trump wrote a letter to the Department of Justice in June 2022 stating that, to the best of her knowledge, no government material remained at the residence. Two months later, the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago and found additional documents. In all, Trump allegedly had more than 700 classified documents.

Smith is also prosecuting Trump in federal court in Washington, D.C. over the former president’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Trump also faces state criminal charges in Georgia and New York. Despite this, he is the runaway favorite to win the Republican nomination.
