Former President Donald Trump’s legal team is doubling down about their concern over the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
Trump’s legal team says the redacted affidavit raises “more questions than answers.”
“Trump’s legal team claims that heavily redacted document is evidence that a neutral third party is necessary to monitor DOJ handling of evidence,” reports Fox.

“The attorneys cited the unsealing of the redacted affidavit as a reason for a judge to grant its motion for a ‘special master,'” reported Fox.
“The Redacted Affidavit underscores why this Motion should be granted, as it provides almost no information that would allow Movant to understand why the raid took place, or what was taken from his home,” Trump’s legal team said in a written statement.
Somewhere around 20 pages of the 38-page affidavit were either largely or fully redacted.
Twenty-four pages had at partial information blacked out.
“The few lines that are unredacted raise more questions than answers. For instance, Paragraph 3 states, in pertinent part, as one of the bases for probable cause, that there ‘are Presidential records subject to record retention requirements currently remain[ing] at the PREMISES,'” Trump’s legal team stated.
Trump’s legal team added, “This provides the deeply troubling prospect that President Trump’s home was raided under a pretense of a suspicion that Presidential records were on his property – even though the Presidential Records Act is not a criminally-enforceable statute.”
