The National Archives and Records Administration recovered more than 700 pages of classified documents — including some labeled "special access program materials," one of the government's most secret classifications — from former President Donald Trump's Florida mansion back in January, according to a letter released by the Archives on Tuesday. Trump's NARA liaison John Solomon had published the text of the letter Monday night.

The materials were among those in the 15 boxes recovered from Mar-a-Lago earlier this year, and do not include any of the records obtained back in June and in the search on Aug. 8, Politico and The Washington Post report.
