May, 2022: GRAND JURY used in probe of Mar a lago classified documents

And all this time people have been complaining that Garland wasn't doing anything.

Investigators have begun conducting interviews, and a federal grand jury has issued a subpoena, as part of the Justice Department’s probe into how 15 boxes of government documents — some marked classified — made their way to President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, people familiar with the matter said.

The subpoena and interviews are signs that the Justice Department investigation, which was first reported by The Washington Post last month, is moving forward, with potential legal or political consequences for Trump or others involved in the handling of the government materials.

The boxes of documents at issue were recovered from Mar-a-Lago this year after they were improperly removed from the White House. David S. Ferriero, who retired last month as archivist of the United States, recalled in a recent interview that he was told by the White House Office of Records Management about a group of boxes in the White House residence that should go to the Archives, but they had not shown up as expected.

“I can remember watching the Trumps leaving the White House and getting off in the helicopter that day, and someone carrying a white banker box, and saying to myself, ‘What the hell’s in that box?’” he said, adding that “began a whole process” of the Archives trying to determine what documents they might be missing.

2. No, they don't know that they were all returned.

The National Archives got 15 boxes of them last year, but on Monday they were looking for more of them at Mar a Lago.

The federal agency was tipped off earlier this year when the National Archives and Records Administration said it found classified materials in 15 boxes at Mar-a-Lago.

The agents were searching for additional documents at the Florida property Monday.

3. more questions...

(1) when Trump still occupied the White House where exactly were those documents kept...the Oval Office/the residence/a laundry room?

(2) who was tasked with moving 15+ boxes of documents (and artifacts) from the White House/Oval Office and loading them onto a truck ..Trump's Secret Service detail/Mark Meadows/a local mom and pop one truck operation? (there are pics)...and then who unloaded those same 15+ boxes when they reached Mar-a-Lago?

(3) once the National Archives concluded the boxes were unlawfully removed and returned, how did the Archives determine what boxes were still missing?
