Donald Trump continues to win.
A Judge said he will release portion of affidavit that led to search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
Judge Bruce Reinhart gave prosecutors until August 25 to share their proposed redactions.
Shock Court Decision on Trump Raid
“U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart on Thursday ordered the Justice Department to redact the affidavit that was used to obtain the FBI’s search warrant for its raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and said he would release at least a portion of it,” reports Fox.
“Reinhart, during the highly anticipated hearing in the West Palm Beach Division of Florida, said that the entire affidavit should not be kept under seal, despite the Justice Department’s argument that the release would jeopardize future steps in the investigation and provide a ‘roadmap’ for the probe,” reported Fox.
“The Justice Department asked Reinhart to keep the document under seal to ‘protect the integrity of an ongoing law enforcement investigation that implicates national security,'” reported Fox.
“Media organizations arguing the affidavit should be unsealed, the government and Reinhart all agreed that this is a unique and unprecedented case,” according to Fox News.
“Charles Tobin, who argued for the Washington Post and other media organizations, said the raid on Mar-a-Lago was one of the most significant law enforcement actions in the nation’s history, saying, ‘The public interest could not be greater,'” reported Fox.
Trump demanded this week that the affidavit be released in an unredacted form.
“In the interest of TRANSPARENCY, I call for the immediate release of the completely Unredacted Affidavit pertaining to this horrible and shocking BREAK-IN,” Trump said.
