Two more papers found in Trump's storage last year were marked secret

Two documents that Donald Trumpís legal team returned to the justice department last year after retrieving them from a private storage unit in Florida as part of an additional search for materials were marked classified at the secret level, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The materials included one document marked as secret on the cover page, and a second document marked as secret with its classified attachment removed, one of the sources said Ė which Trumpís lawyers told the department was an indication of that document no longer being classified.

The two documents were found inside sealed boxes that appeared to have been unopened from when they were shipped down to the storage unit in Florida, near Trumpís Mar-a-Lago resort, from the White House at the end of the Trump administration, the lawyers also told the justice department.

Since the two documents were returned as soon as the lawyers were informed of the discovery, the department is not expected to include them as part of the wider criminal investigation into Trumpís retention of national security information and obstruction of justice.

The discovery of additional classified-marked documents, though, frustrated the department as federal prosecutors under the recently-appointed special counsel Jack Smith have adopted an increasingly aggressive posture against Trump at every turn in the investigation.
