(TownHall) Donald Trump is the victim of a political hit job by the Biden Department of Justice. He didn’t commit any actual law violations as stipulated in the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. Federal officials fought to keep the affidavit providing probable cause for the FBI’s August 8 raid under seal. Still, a judge, the same one who signed off on the search, Bruce Reinhart, disagreed and ordered parts of the document to be released after a redaction process. That means a sea of blacked-out pages, so what’s the point? The best part regarding the reasoning behind keeping the core of the affidavit under wraps is to protect Donald Trump. Nothing is creepier than when the government says, “this is for your protection.”
With every development regarding this federal ransacking, two things remain unchanged. It looks increasingly clear that the Trump legal team was cooperating with federal officials regarding the documents in question, so the obstruction of justice allegation gets weaker by the day. Second, where is the crime that precipitated this search of Trump’s home because recent updates only make it seem like the Justice Department cobbled together statutes that aren’t criminal to justify this ransacking?
The latest development in this legal fiasco is Acting Archivist Debra Steidel Wall’s role in the document retrieval, where she seems to be one of the leading figures who triggered the FBI raid. As Tom Elliott of Grabien clipped, Trump honored this woman during his presidency, which he cited as a failure on the former president’s part for not draining the swamp (via WaPo):
