Trump lawyer does not ‘believe’ that secret nuclear documents found at Mar-a-Lago

Ex-president 唐纳德·特朗普 has denied reports that he had documents related to nuclear weapons at his home on Friday morning and accused the 联邦调查局 of “planting information.”

This response came after a 佛罗里达 judge unsealed the FBI search warrant that allowed agents to enter Mr Trump’s Palm Beach home on Monday.
