The warrant authorizing federal agents to search former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence was unsealed Friday by a federal judge, after the Justice Department requested that it be made public.

Federal authorities sought a range of highly sensitive documents, including 11 caches of classified materials, indicating that the federal investigation was examining possible violations of the Espionage Act, according to documents unsealed Friday.

The action came shortly after the Department of Justice wrote in a new court filing Friday that, after conferring with Trump’s attorneys, the former president does not object to making the search warrant of his Mar-a-Lago estate public.

Before the document was released, details of what the FBI was looking for in its Monday search started to be reported, including that FBI agents who searched Trump’s home retrieved boxes that included 11 sets of classified documents, said a person who has reviewed the documents.
