    New documents related to the FBI's raid of former President Donald Trump's Florida home do not explicitly mention nuclear weapons secrets, which The Washington Post reported agents were seeking in the Monday search.

    The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida on Friday unsealed unredacted copies of the FBI search warrant and receipts of items taken from Mar-a-Lago Monday during an FBI raid on former President Donald Trump's residence.

    Nowhere on the warrant or on the receipts of items taken are "nuclear weapons" explicitly mentioned. The documents, which are relatively undescriptive and mostly avoid specifics, do refer to "top secret" information and say Trump is being investigated in part for potential violations of 18 U.S.C. section 793. This section of the U.S. code deals with "obtaining information respecting the national defense with intent or reason to believe that the information is to be used to the injury of the United States, or to the advantage of any foreign nation."

    Notably, one of the documents, attachment B, refers to "information, including communications in any form, regarding the retrieval, storage, or transmission of national defense information or classified material."

    The Washington Post reported Thursday that the unprecedented FBI raid on Trump's residence was undertaken in part to recover "classified documents relating to nuclear weapons." WaPo's sources, which the outlet referred to as "people familiar with the investigation," did not elaborate on the claim, nor did they say whether the FBI recovered such documents.

    The bombshell report sparked controversy online as to why the FBI waited roughly 18 months to recover such records. Speculation also questioned why, if the nature of the documents was so sensitive, the White House did not know about the raid.

    "Just to get this straight, we're now supposed to believe that the material Trump had stored in his house was nuclear content so sensitive the FBI waited a year and a half to go get it and used the National Archives as a prop to do so?" Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro tweeted.

    National Review editor Rich Lowry said skeptically: "Given the track record of these people, it better prove to have been the blueprint of hypersonic missile, or something similar."

    Politico hedged in its flagship newsletter, Playbook, on Friday morning, while blurbing the WaPo report. The outlet noted that anonymously sourced reports on the former president are often exaggerated or false. "There were few other nuke details in the piece, and we've seen enough Trump scandals in the last seven years to know that sometimes potentially explosive allegations from anonymous sources fail to detonate. But Trump himself was conspicuously quiet about the story," Playbook noted.

Was it a judicious ploy for Joe Biden's FBI to execute the unprecedented raid of President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate?
  Yes; the Cheneys despise this former Republican president, and for good reason ... so they say.
  No; never has a former president been treated with this level of vindictive abuse by those temporarily in power.
  Who cares? It's Trump.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
