Timothy Parlatore told CNN that Trump was using a folder marked "Classified Evening Summary" to block the light from his bedside phone.

 Timothy Parlatore, who represents Trump in both the special counsel investigation into the former president’s handling of classified material and the probe related to the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol, confirmed that additional classified documents were found during a search in December and turned over to the Justice Department.

“We’ve tried to do searches of all the relevant places, and anytime we’ve found anything, we’ve immediately turned it over,” Parlatore told CNN in an exclusive interview, painting his client as cooperative in the ongoing criminal probe.

He also confirmed that Trump’s team handed over to DOJ an empty manilla folder marked “Classified Evening Summary” after receiving a subpoena for that item, which was found in the former president’s bedroom.

According to Parlatore, Trump had effectively been using the empty folder as a lamp shade to block a light on his landline telephone that was keeping him up at night.

“He has one of those landline telephones next to his bed, and it has a blue light on it, and it keeps him up at night. So he took the manilla folder and put it over so it would keep the light down so he could sleep at night,” Parlatore said. “It’s just this folder. It says ‘Classified Evening Summary’ on it. It’s not a classification marking. It’s not anything that is controlled in any way. There is nothing illegal about it.”

Parlatore did not say how long Trump used the empty folder as a shade next to his bed.

The lawyer also noted that Trump's legal team completed their sweep of Trump's residences back in December, after a months long investigation into classified materials.

As the investigation continues, it was most recently discovered that an aid to Trump had scanned classified documents onto a laptop, but that she was unaware of the classification marks on the papers at the time. The laptop was recently turned over to authorities as part of the investigation.

Parlatore said that additional material keep popping up because "the White House does not have proper procedures for handling classified information."

Trump's legal team is currently cooperating with the DOJ's ongoing investigation into the classified documents, following the August raid on the former president's Mar-a-Lago home.
