A Florida judge has said a portion of the affidavit related to the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home can be unsealed.
“U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, speaking about documents related to the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property, says the Department of Justice has not met its burden of showing that the entire affidavit should remain sealed,” reported Fox News.
Will Cain of Fox News weighed in, saying the American people deserve to know why the FBI felt it would be ok to perform an unprecedented raid on a former President’s home.
Trump Mar-a-Lago Raid Truth Comes Out
“We deserve to know why the FBI raided the home of Biden’s most likely political opponent,” Cain said.
“Trump wants us to see the affidavit, no redactions, but the DOJ wants it buried. They don’t want us to know why the judge signed off on the raid and what exactly they were looking for when they went through Mar-a-Lago, but the DOJ says unsealing it could harm “other high-profile investigations,” Cain added.
Former FBI special agent Maureen O’Connell explained why she thinks the Department of Justice was “trying to push” the FBI to execute the warrant for the Trump raid:
Sometimes I think it’s just a real good idea to sit back and let the chips fall where they may,” said O’Connell. “But when I look at the totality of the situation here, I really think when we talk about spirited conversations going on for a couple of weeks, and DOJ — it seems to me the DOJ is the heavy in this situation. That they were trying to push the [FBI] to do this warrant. They were trying to push the Bureau to really, really hit this situation hard. And my guess would be that the Bureau was the one going against the DOJ in this particular situation, because when you consider which entity has more to lose — the FBI clearly has much more to lose from this situation.”
