Justice Department files revised inventory of items seized from Mar-a-Lago

The Justice Department on Monday filed a revised inventory of items confiscated from former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort over the past month, in addition to a statement confirming the accuracy of the new list.
Senior U.S. District Judge Raymond J. Dearie of New York, the court-appointed special counsel in the case, had ordered the Justice Department to submit a statement of all unclassified items to Trump's attorneys as part of its review of documents federal agents obtained on March 8. confiscated Aug.
"To ensure that the detailed property inventory is accurate, I and FBI personnel working under my direction conducted an additional review and recount of the materials seized to make this statement," said a senior FBI special agent working with the Search attendance was written in Monday's filing. "This additional review and recount resulted in some minor revisions to the detailed property inventory."

The few differences mainly concern the amount of non-secret government documents and Trump's collection of magazine and newspaper articles. A federal appeals court recently ruled that the classified documents should not be included in the special master's examination.
In some cases, the Justice Department's revised inventory adds documents while subtracting in others.
The special agent who filed the filing suggested that the revisions were due to the additional time allotted to investigators to create the final list; A previous order for the initial inventory list had required it to be "completed in a single business day."
In the revised list, an entry for the last crate from the Mar-a-Lago storage room, which held most of the confiscated materials, states that it now contains fewer empty classified folders.
While the original inventory list noted two empty folders with "CLASSIFIED" banners in the box, a revised entry removes those folders; similar empty folders will still be listed for other boxes.
Trump's legal team will have an opportunity to respond in person to the Justice Department's latest request at a status conference scheduled next week, but his response in the form of a court filing is due by then, on Friday.
Dearie last week ordered Trump's team to issue a "statement or affidavit" to support the former president's public claims that some of the items removed from Mar-a-Lago were planted there. His attorneys can also note any items they say were confiscated but not listed in the inventory.
