We will not get the whole picture, but we will get some of it.
The DOJ wanted the Trump affidavit to remain sealed so as not to tip its hand.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart disagrees and has ordered the release of the affidavit, albeit with redactions.
We all want to know the endgame here, but the DOJ insists the affidavit could offer a glimpse into its strategy.
Judge Reinhart says, who cares?
He stated, “I find that on the present record the Government has not met its burden of showing that the entire affidavit should remain sealed.
“It is ORDERED that by noon EST on Thursday, August 25, 2022, the Government shall file under seal its proposed redactions along with a legal memorandum setting forth the justification for the proposed redactions.
“It is further ordered that ECF No. 57 shall be unsealed by the Clerk of Court.
“Done and ordered in Chambers at West Palm Beach, Florida this 18th day of August, 2022.”
Trump celebrated the partial victory, with a spokesperson stating, “President Trump has made clear his view that the American people should be permitted to see the unredacted affidavit related to the raid and break-in of his home, Mar-a-Lago.
“Today, magistrate Judge Reinhart rejected the DOJ’s cynical attempt to hide the whole affidavit from Americans.
“No redactions should be necessary and the whole affidavit should be released, given the Democrats’ penchant for using redactions to hide government corruption, just like they did with the Russia hoax.”
I also read a report today that the DOJ stated that the investigation into this matter is just beginning.
As I suspected, we will not see anything on this until it can impact the upcoming 2022 or 2024 election.
Garland will hold this in his hip pocket until he can drop a bombshell with it and help swing the election in Dems’ favor.
