The affidavit that led to the FBI's search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago home specifically mentions an Obama-era executive order about classified national security information

The Justice Department on Friday released the affidavit that led to the Mar-a-Lago raid. The heavily redacted affidavit mentions an Obama-era executive order about classified

information. Executive Order 13526, issued in 2009, outlines how to properly manage classified information. The affidavit that led to the FBI's search of former President

Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home earlier this month specifically mentions an Obama-era executive order about classified national security information. A redacted version of

the affidavit — which unveils new details about the unprecedented August 8 search — was released on Friday by the Justice Department and came after public pressure for the

department to disclose documents that supported the search. The affidavit specifically mentions Executive Order 13526, which then-President Barack Obama issued in December

2009. A White House statement accompanying the order said its aim was to outline a "uniform system for classifying, safeguarding, and declassifying national security

information, including information relating to defense against transnational terrorism." Obama's order updated previous executive orders that presidents Bill Clinton and

George W. Bush issued in 1995 and 2003, respectively, that also outlined a system for classified information.
