Full catalog of blunders that led to FBI Mar-a-Lago espionage raid emerges
Posted BY: Daily Mail
Donald Trump left a ‘gracious’ letter behind for Joe Biden after leaving the White House, it has been revealed, as aides shared the catalog of chaos that culminated in last week’s Mar-a-Lago raid.
Sources and notes detailing the last four days of the Trump presidency revealed that upon entering the Oval Office, newly elected president Joe Biden found a letter waiting for him from his predecessor, The New York Times reported.
The letter was reportedly handwritten by Trump himself on two large pages, with Biden remarking to an aide that the former president ‘had been more gracious in the letter than he had anticipated.’
Its contents have not been revealed, but the letter will be among the first records Biden will have to turn over to the National Archives when he leaves the White House.
Aides say it was the very same process that landed Trump in trouble with the FBI, after attempts by the National Archive to retrieve the note Barack Obama had left for Trump, as well as correspondence with Kim Jong un, sparked a wider probe into the removal of classified documents.
It’s a process that has landed Trump in the midst of a FBI investigation, following a series of blunders that resulted in a failure to turn over two dozen boxes of documents, leading to a raid on his Mar-a-Lago home.
