After 03:20 in CNN's January 22, 2023 Brown presses GOP House Intelligence chair on Trump documents US Representative Mike Turner (R-OH) says the following:
The concern we all have, is the abuse of power that was done by the Biden administration, where they raided his home. Now you know, they didn't just take classified documents from Mar-a-Lago, here are the pages of the filing by the Biden administration, they even walked out with his - Trump's passport.
Now you could be an intern at the FBI and you'd know that Trump's passport is not a classified document.
Of course digging through boxes and implementing an item-by-item disposition was not on the FBI agents' to-do list that day, the potential presence of classified material made that impossible in real time. Instead, this would likely take place at and/or by the US National Archives.
But my question is specifically about the passport of the former US president.
- Did the FBI physically seize the former US President's current (at the time) passport?
- If so, how long did they hold it, and when did they return it (assuming they did)?
