Following the May subpoena, the FBI retrieved 38 classified documents from Trump's Mar-a-Lago property in June, however, after authorities discovered "multiple sources of evidence indicating that ... classified documents remained at the Premises," the FBI returned on Monday, August 8, with a warrant to search the premises.

As OK! previously reported, the FBI may conduct another search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago home after the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) revealed that they still have not recovered certain missing documents from his time in the White House.

"Presidential records are the property of the American people, and it is outrageous that these records remain unaccounted for 20 months after former President Trump left office," House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Rep. Carolyn Maloney said in a statement.

"Former President Trump and his senior staff have shown an utter disregard for the rule of law and our national security by failing to return presidential records as the law requires," added Maloney.
