In a maze of justice, how many secrets lie hidden? Today, court documents reveal that eight search warrants and affidavits were filed in the federal case against former President Donald Trump for mishandling classified documents.

Prosecutors are keeping the content, locations, and devices targeted by these warrants under wraps. So how far does the rabbit hole go?

Recently unsealed motions tied to media outlets’ attempts to gain information about last year’s search warrant served at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence revealed additional search warrants and affidavits.

Details of seven of these warrants remain a mystery, and they don’t necessarily imply seven separate physical locations were searched.

These additional warrants could encompass storage facilities, other parts of Mar-a-Lago, digital devices, or online accounts.

The documents were revealed to the legal teams representing Trump and his aide, Walt Nauta, who have both been charged.

Trump faces 37 counts for willfully retaining national defense information, conspiring to obstruct justice, and making false statements. Nauta faces six felony counts for allegations of assisting Trump in hiding national security files.
