Former President Donald Trump has not been charged with any crime but speculation has mounted about the Department of Justice’s next moves after documents related to the search of his Florida home were unsealed on Friday.

The warrant authorizing the search at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach revealed that the former president is under investigation for a potential violation of the Espionage Act and also cited potential violations of other U.S. statutes.

The Espionage Act, passed in 1917, carries a penalty of a fine, up to 10 years in prison or both for mishandling of defense information and it was the first statute cited on the warrant.
