US intelligence will assess the risk to national security of documents seized from Trump

The US intelligence community will assess the risk to national security of documents seized from ex-President Trump. The US intelligence community will assess the potential risk to national security that would be the disclosure of data in documents seized during a search at the estate of ex-US President Donald Trump Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

This is stated in a letter from the Director of US Intelligence Evril Haines, writes Reuters.

In the document, Haines promised that the agency would assess the possible risk to national security that would arise if the relevant documents were disclosed.

The letter is addressed to the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Carolyn Maloney, and the chairman of the Lower House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, who asked for such an audit.

On August 9, Donald Trump spoke about the searches at his Mar-a-Lago estate. About a hundred FBI agents participated in them. The politician suggested that the actions of the FBI are related to his potential participation in the presidential elections of 2024. He called the search inappropriate.
