A Trump family member may have been responsible for tipping off the FBI to the location of information at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home.
The report comes from unnamed sources who spoke with the Guardian in a new report.

"According to the sources, some aides were convinced that only a family member would have known to point agents to a particular leather-bound box, as well as knowing the location of Trump's safe," Business Insider reported.
"According to multiple reports, agents conducting the raid were acting on information, including witness testimony, that Trump had not returned all the classified information which was requested by the Justice Department and National Archives," it added.

The family member theory is unproven but has been suggested to explain how the FBI knew where to search to find Trump's classified documents.
The source would have to be someone who knew the inside of Trump's Florida home, but it's also possible the FBI made the discovery without additional help. The speculation may also be promoted to help continue to stir division for Trump as attacks continue ahead of his possible announcement of a 2024 presidential run.
