As you have probably heard, the magistrate in this case has ordered the DOJ to make public at least part of the affidavit that justified the raid at Mar-a-Lago by the FBI earlier this month.
Magistrate Reinhart ordered the Justice Department to respond by August 15 to our Motion to Unseal the warrant and supporting materials behind the FBI raid. In its filing, the Justice Department alleged that releasing the affidavit would “cause significant and irreparable damage” to its ongoing criminal investigation.
The “criminal investigation” the Biden administration is covering up reeks of corruption and dishonesty – and is based on a reinvention of law about presidential records that is at odds with the U.S. Constitution, court rulings, federal statutes, and prior government legal positions and practice. No administration should be able to raid the home of a former president and putative presidential candidate based on ‘secret’ reasons.
We’re pleased that our legal pressure forced the partial release of warrant materials. The U.S. Constitution and federal law give unreviewable authority to President Trump to take whatever records he wishes at the end of his presidency. The Biden administration’s dishonest depiction of personal records of President Trump it illicitly seized during the raid as “classified” is further demonstration that the raid was a brazen act of raw political abuse.
The battle for transparency and accountable will continue and require much heavy lifting by your Judicial Watch legal team. If this current crisis doesn’t convince you of the need for Judicial Watch, I’m not sure what will! I encourage to join our cause and support our work directly here. In the meantime, we will keep you abreast of breaking developments in the Biden administration’s attack on President Trump and the rule of law.
