The justice system can sure move fast when they want to — and they certainly want to in this case.
If Democrats get their way, Donald Trump is days away from being indicted by the Biden administration for phony records handling charges. Attorney General Merrick Garland “personally ordered” an FBI raid on the Former President’s Mar-a-Lago residence which produced minimal evidence (if any at all) of any wrongdoing.
A former sitting President has never been targeted to this degree, especially by his successor, and it’s finally time for Trump’s legal team to do something about it. Trump’s attorneys are currently in the process of securing a special master to review the documents seized from Mar-a-Lago. They also claim Donald Trump’s constitutional rights were violated, specifically the rights granted to citizens in the First and Fourth amendments.
On Monday, the DOJ claimed it already reviewed the documents seized at Mar-a-Lago and determined that a “limited set” of records “potentially” include “attorney-client privileged material” between the Former President and his legal team.
In other words, the DOJ wrongfully seized Trump’s private material and violated his civil liberties.
The Monday bombshell from top DOJ officials came in response to a federal judge saying she was leaning toward granting former President Donald Trump’s request for an independent “special master” to review the information that the FBI had seized during its unprecedented raid of his Florida resort home.
The Justice Department said its “Privilege Review Team” has already “identified a limited set of materials that potentially contain attorney-client privileged information, completed its review of those materials, and is in the process of following the procedures set forth in paragraph 84 of the search warrant affidavit to address potential privilege disputes.”
Additionally, the Department of Justice and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence are “facilitating a classification review of materials recovered pursuant to the search.”
U.S. District Court Judge Aileen Cannon said in a Saturday order that she was providing notice of her “preliminary intent to appoint a special master in this case” and noted that the decision was made due to the “exceptional circumstances presented.”
A hearing on the motion to commission a special master, also known as a third-party attorney, will be held this Thursday in West Palm Beach, Florida, and the DOJ is required to provide more information before then.
The White House has claimed on multiple occasions that President Joe Biden was not briefed beforehand on the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago and isn’t privy to the details surrounding the investigation, yet on Friday, the supposedly unknowing president scoffed at Trump’s legal defense.
“I just want you to know I’ve declassified everything in the world. I’m president, I can do — c’mon man,” Biden said in reference to Trump’s claims he declassified all documents taken from the White House.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden still has no idea where he’s at.
