one of the funniest aspects of FBI Raid Feather Donald TrumpAs far as anything strange about the one-man crime wave that served as the President of the United States of America, is a matter of “warrant.” In their rush to blindly defend Mr Mar-a-Lago, many of Trump’s aides have spent weeks demanding that the government make public the legal document obtained to search the Palm Beach residence, suggesting that failure to do so is evidence that the government has nothing on the former president and that the raids are politically persecuted There was a serious attempt to leave. This was a bizarre strategy for two reasons, the first being that Trump himself has had a copy warranted this whole time, but—curiously!—refused to make it public. Second reason? Because after all the insistence and hysteria, the Attorney General Merrick Garland Finally called his hoax.
Yes, in an incredible turn of events, Garland announced During a press conference on Thursday that the Justice Department filed a motion for a court-authorized warrant that allowed the FBI to seal Mar-a-Lago. This, you might have guessed, is not good news for the former president.
For starters, as Ellie Mistle, an advocate and justice correspondent for Country notes, the warrant “shall determine all possible reasons for the search” mar-a-lago, i.e. the reasons the government believed the search could uncover evidence of a crime. (In its request, the DOJ also Asked As for the sealing of two attachments to the warrant, as well as an asset receipt for the item removed by the agents.) Then there is the fact that Trump and his lawyers are now in a position to decide whether they should prevent the document from being sealed. Must fight , which will make it look like they have something to hide, or just let it be, which they might not even want to do. (If they had, they would have issued it earlier.) Sadly, for the former person, even if his lawyers decide to argue against the closure of the warrant, Judges can reportedly decide to do so anyway,
In Garland’s remarks, which lasted only a few minutes, the attorney general confirmed that he personally approved Decision to seek search warrants He said the department “does not take such a decision lightly” and “would, where possible, seek less intrusive means of search as an alternative to search and to minimize any search”. It’s standard practice.” In other words, if Garland — who has made it clear that protecting the integrity of the Justice Department is his first priority — had thought there was another way to do it, he would have taken it. as new York Times informed of On Thursday morning, Trump received a subpoena for documents this spring, investigators believed, held a hold when the National Archives retrieved 15 boxes from Mar-a-Lago. summons, Times said, suggested that “the Department of Justice try methods lacking a search warrant for the material before taking the politically explosive move of sending FBI agents undisclosed to Mar-a-Lago.” Two people familiar with the matter said the classified documents investigators believed Trump failed to return were “so sensitive in nature, and concerned with national security, that the Justice Department had to act.”
