National security risk review of material Trump kept at Mar-a-Lago resumes after appeals court ruling

Intelligence officials have resumed their review of the national security risks of classified documents that were seized from Donald Trump’s estate in Florida, a spokesperson for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence told POLITICO.

The resumption, which has not previously been reported, comes after a federal appeals court awarded the Justice Department a decisive victory, unanimously blocking elements of a lower court ruling that forced federal prosecutors to request a pause in the long-awaited intelligence review.

In a letter to congressional committee leaders last month, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines said her office would conduct two reviews of the documents Trump kept at Mar-a-Lago: one focused on levels of classification of seized documents, and another that examines the national security fallout if the documents were improperly disclosed.
