Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of "stealing" various personal documents during its August 8th search warrant execution at Trump's Mar-a-Lago compound in Palm Beach, Florida.

"Not only did the FBI steal my Passports in the FBI Raid and Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago, but it has just been learned through court filings that they also improperly took my complete and highly confidential medical file and history, with all the bells and whistles (at least they’ll see that I’m very healthy, an absolutely perfect physical specimen!), plus personal Tax Records (Illegal to take), and lawyer/client/privileged information, a definite NO, NO," Trump wrote. "Days of the Soviet Union!"

Trump's rambling post on his crumbling Twitter copycat app Truth Social came hours after The Washington Post revealed that a foreign government's nuclear secrets were among the trove of classified materials recovered by the FBI last month.

That explosive report followed a Monday ruling handed down by Trump-appointed Judge Aileen Cannon of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, in which she granted Trump's request for a special master and ordered the Department of Justice to quell its criminal investigation into how and why Trump casually dumped those files in his beach house.

Trump is suspected of having violated the Espionage Act.

Cannon also rejected a filing by Republican officials urging her to deny Trump's petition.
