There have been many major disclosures in the midst of a heated legal struggle in the month after federal authorities raided Donald Trump.
This was the first time federal agents had ever searched the residence of a former president.
After the search on August 8, court records revealed that the former president had "secret" and "top secret" confidential materials at his residence.
The Justice Department argued in court that there were attempts to hinder and/or cover up its investigation.
To the dismay of the Justice Department, a federal court has approved Trump's request for a special master.
A DOJ investigation into whether Trump deleted sensitive materials before he left office was reported to have included a search of Mar-a-Lago on August 8.
