Former US President Donald Trump and his attorneys are still uncertain about what was taken during the FBI’s raid on his Florida home last week, according to Trump lawyer Lindsey Halligan, who told Fox News on Monday that the list of seized items the agency had provided was “borderline worthless.”
“We have asked multiple times for a real inventory description of what was taken,” Halligan told Fox’s Sean Hannity, lamenting the list’s lack of detail. “It doesn’t say where the documents were located, what specifically was taken,” she continued. “We have real concerns in terms of whether they were right to take certain things.”
«The Department of Justice clearly has different rules for Donald Trump and anyone else out there. The whole system really does suffer when they write different rules for different people,» she added.
The FBI has also avoided communicating its intentions in seizing the documents it took, including whether they constitute “evidence” in any sort of investigation and what if anything they plan to do with the material, the attorney said.
