Nothing has filtered on the exact nature of the document. We know that it was found by the FBI in the office of Donald Trump, and, for an unknown reason, stored in the same box as the decree by which the former American president commuted the sentence of his friend Roger Stone. .

The detailed inventory published in early September specifies that this box contained a total of three documents: one marked with the “secret” classification, and two other unclassified “documents or photos”. At this stage, it is not known which corresponds to the information on the French president.
