The Justice Department said Monday that agents discovered a "limited" number of potentially privileged documents during the FBI's raid of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.
The department made the statement in a court filing in which the agency also said the some of the materials taken in the Aug. 8 raid potentially contain material covered by attorney-client privilege.
The department also pledged to provide more detail in a supplemental filing but stated that its Privilege Review Team "identified a limited set of materials that potentially contain attorney-client privileged information," according to the court document.
The review team is currently in the process of addressing potential privilege disputes, officials said.
