Americans are still waiting for full details concerning the FBI’s infamous raid on Mar-a-Lago. An affidavit that could shed some light has yet to be unsealed.
But Trump’s not waiting. His team fired a lawsuit against the DOJ. And they are making big demands over documents that were “illegally seized.”
From Fox News:
Former President Trump and his legal team filed a motion Monday evening seeking an independent review of the records seized by the FBI…
According to the motion filed Monday evening in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Trump and his legal team are seeking an order to appoint a special master to review the records obtained during the search.
Trump’s legal team filed a motion demanding a “special master,” an independent figure, to review the records taken from Mar-a-Lago.
This special master would review the documents, preventing the DOJ from viewing them until this person is appointed.
One of the goals of this demand is to remove those documents that were taken, despite not being part of the search warrant’s scope.
Trump and his team accused the FBI of “breaking into” his home and “illegally seizing” documents.
Reports indicated that documents protected by “attorney-client” privilege were taken, among others.
It will be hard for the Biden administration to convince most Americans this raid wasn’t politically motivated.
This event happened just weeks before major midterm elections. And many believe Trump plans on running for president again in 2024.
The taking of documents not in the scope of this investigation only throws fuel on that fire. If the National Archives simply wanted to recover official documents, they could have done so easily.
But an intense FBI raid, with over 30 armed agents, could be used as a pretense to seize documents that Democrats wanted their hands on.
We’ve long seen Democrats go on supposed “fishing trips,” using their power to find dirt on Trump. This could be their biggest and most shocking trip of all.
- Trump’s team is demanding a “special master” to review documents taken from Mar-a-Lago.
- The 45th president accuses the FBI of “illegally seizing” documents unrelated to the investigation.
- The motion demands a freeze on the DOJ’s work and the return of documents.
