Judge gives DOJ 5 days to respond to request to unseal Trump raid search warrant

quote:

Former President Donald Trump reportedly has no plans to publish the search warrant used to raid Mar-a-Lago on Monday — as the judge who approved the search considers a motion to unseal the document.

The Justice Department has said little publicly about the unprecedented raid on a former president, which is believed to be part of an effort to retrieve presidential records that may contain classified information. Trump blasted the raid as a partisan “surprise attack” and “political targeting at the highest level.”

“No, we’re not releasing a copy of the warrant,” NBC News quoted a source close to Trump as saying. His attorney Christina Bobb did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation from The Post.

But the document may be released anyhow, as US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, who issued the warrant, gave the Justice Department until 5 p.m. Aug. 15 to respond to a request to unseal the records from conservative transparency group Judicial Watch.

In a court motion Wednesday, Judicial Watch wrote that “the public has an urgent and substantial interest in understanding the predicate for the execution of the unprecedented search warrant of the private residence of a former president.”

“As of the filing of this motion,” the group added, “the public record consists solely of speculation and innuendo.”

They don't care. The DOJ is a political weapon, we've known it for some time. Hopefully Trump dismantles it.

Thanks for a proper subject title… misinformation on this board is rampant.

Everything I'm reading now is saying that Trump and his team don't even have a copy of the warrant because they were not allowed to keep it. Nor were his lawyers allowed to be present in the room during the raid.

The deafening silence from the DOJ is very telling.

It's very common for the DOJ to not release statements during an investigation. At least not right away.

Nothing about this is common. People want answers because nobody knows what the hell is going when a former President's house was unprecedentedly raided almost three days ago. Everything about it reeks. The DOJ is figuring out how to run cover, no doubt.

Is it also common to execute a raid and not give the person being raided a copy of the warrant?

Pretty common. They'll respond with some bull shite excuse and the judge will keep it sealed.

Garland was the one who sealed it. It will stay sealed until he unseals it but the people who run the WH will have to allow him to.

Indeed. It’s bs that all “ongoing investigations” can hide behind that excuse. It’s interference Mr Garland

What isn’t common is to have the affidavit of probable cause sealed and to not allow attorneys to be present during the search.

The court sealed it at the request of DOJ.

The court will decide whether it stays sealed.

I have been thinking about this since we spoke earlier today, and I have a theory that you can probably shoot down, confirm or perhaps just shed some light.

Random lawyer shows up at scene of search warrant and claims to represent property owner. Has no letter of representation or retention agreement and no court pleading has been filed in her name. Cannot reach property owner to confirm that she is acting as his representative or on his behalf.

Is the FBI (or any LEO agency) required to allow this random lawyer onto the premises ... or even to provide this random lawyer with a copy of the warrant?

Your knowledge of criminal procedure (especially the informal stuff) far exceeds my own.

But it’s not common to raid the leader of the opposition party. As bad as the FBI and DOJ have looked in recent history it’s obvious to anyone who believes in our Constitution that this neddd to be transparent.

Secret source, hot tip, and all that won’t cut it. Not after what we’ve seen lately.

You don't believe he'll be President again, do you?

Ding Ding Ding.

Either the Judge knows this will hurt Trump and this is the way they have worked this out with the DOJ to add some semblance of apolitical activity…

Or…this judge is getting slammed by all of this and wants it off his plate and on the DOJ to support their raid.

Will be interesting if the DOJ argues to keep it sealed if he bucks them and unseals it. Doubtful, but then again, he’s basically forcing them to at least respond in some way.

The highest levels of the DOJ are in the Hoover Building trying to concoct coordinating lies.

I've seen it reported that Trump's legal team has a copy of the warrant and could release it if they wanted to.
