Three days after the National Archives and Records Administration reached out to Trump’s team over concerns about missing documents, a private plane bound for Bedminster, NJ was seen being loaded with what appears to be a series of boxes.
On May 6, 2021 – nearly four months after Donald Trump left office – NARA’s chief counsel, Gary Stern, wrote to the ex-President’s lawyers, saying:
“We know things are very chaotic, as they always are in the course of a one-term transition. But it is absolutely necessary that we obtain and account for all presidential records,” The Washington Post reported.
The video, originally posted by The Daily Mail was zoomed in on by Christopher Webb, who tweeted:

Since leaving the Oval Office 19 months ago, former President Trump has played a cat-and-mouse game with the National Archives, and federal investigators probing the ex-head of state’s handling – or mishandling – of classified materials, stalling a year before returning 15 boxes that included dozens of pieces considered to be sensitive government information,
Six more months of lies and stonewalling left the Justice Department little choice but to secure a warrant and retrieve what belongs to the Executive branch.
Since the warrant was unsealed, the affidavit (though redacted) was released and the inventory list was shared – it became increasingly obvious that the Department of Justice’s investigation is about more than documents taken from the White House, but raises credible and disturbing national security concerns. Learning that the DOJ was looking into possible nuclear information being found amongst the documents — added to recent revelations that documents concerning the nuclear capabilities of other nations were discovered — definitely sounds the alarm.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence is doing a threat assessment in the aftermath of the August 8th search – a task made more difficult with the discovery of dozens of empty folders marked “classified” and “Return to Staff Secretary/Military.” Now, the release of the video showing the boxes being taken to Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey, golf resort calls into question whether all top secret and compartmentalized materials were indeed returned.
According to the Daily Mail, the ex-President was headed to Bedminster to strategize a potential 2024 run. One thing is certain, the Department of Justice should waste no time securing a search warrant for Trump’s New Jersey golf course.
Knowing what we know now, the rumors that it’s not Ivana buried on Bedminster’s golf course but our nation’s top secrets – just got a little less far-fetched.
