The Justice Department admitted late Monday that former President Donald Trump’s passports were taken by FBI agents who searched his Florida home last week — hours after “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell tweeted that she had been told otherwise. 

Late Monday, Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich tweeted a screenshot of an email from a member of the Justice Department’s National Security Division that acknowledged the bureau removed the 45th president’s travel documents from Mar-a-Lago. 

“We have learned that the filter agents seized three passports belonging to President Trump, two expired and one being his active diplomatic passport,” the email said.

The email added that the agency was “returning” Trump’s passports and that they would be ready for pickup by 2 p.m. Monday.
