Wouldn't be surprised if it's just the announcement of the warrant. Trump was posting yesterday that he was directing his lawyers to support an immediate release of the documents.Apparently there is going to be a major announcement from the DOJ at 1430 today.
Trump said in a social media post late Thursday that he supported the “immediate release” of search warrant documents.
His statement, if officially echoed by his lawyers, is likely to lead a magistrate judge to unseal the warrant and some related documents.
The Justice Department’s request came after days of pressure by Republican lawmakers and other allies of Trump on the department to explain why it authorized what is believed to be the first-ever search of a former president’s residence in connection with a criminal investigation.
The department is seeking to unseal only the warrant and an inventory of items seized by the FBI during the search of Trump’s home at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach.
But the department is not asking the judge to unseal the affidavit of probable cause, which would detail how authorities believe a crime was likely committed and why there would be evidence of that crime in the location targeted in the search.
This is Trump just saying shitFair point:
Then people pointed out "well it's in possession of the national archives at the Obama Presidential Library".
I would like to point out that's not the case. The Obama presidential library just began construction in August of last year, with groundbreaking in September 21. The wiki says that the documents are in a facility that is in line with the requirements under NARA.
Supposedly, in June the FBI spoke to Trump about changing the locks/doors to the document storage area at Mar a Lago, apparently that change didn't get done. So we're gonna raid the place? Idiots. The lot of them.
If a law was legitimately broken, then he should be held accountable.Just for shits and gigs... let's say that 45 did take highly classified documents relating to nuclear weapons and signals intelligence — two of the most sensitive areas in the entire U.S. government to an unsecured location. Would y'all still defend him?
