Judge Announces ‘Intent’ to Grant Trump Team’s Request After FBI Seizes Docs at Mar-a-Lago

The exposition of the FBI’s behavior in the month of August has been something to behold. More recently, we learned that the FBI went to Facebook during the 2020 election and indicated that the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation. In reality, the bureau had known since 2019 that the story was real because they themselves were in possession of the laptop.

Prior to that, the big story has been the raid of Donald Trump’s Florida home, which has led to numerous court clashes as the government has sought to keep the details secret. On Friday, the affidavit was released, much to the chagrin of the powers that be. What it revealed was a politically weaponized FBI working hand in hand with partisans at the National Archives to target Trump over a records dispute, partially based on a CBS News article.

Still, the former president has scored some wins in response to the unprecedented action. Though the affidavit was heavily redacted, it was still unusual for any part of it to be ordered released. Now, Trump has just hit a home run, this time concerning his request for a special master to review what was seized at Mar-a-Lago.

The news sent resistance libs into fits of rage, as illustrated below in Marc Caputo’s post.

You know you are over the target when the left-wing legal “experts” on the bird site start frothing at the mouth. Someone should ask them what they are so afraid of. How is transparency and accountability in this process a bad thing? Given the disputes over the records, it only makes sense that a hopefully neutral third party would be allowed to arbitrate between the two sides. The NARA is not all-powerful. It does not lord over the executive branch, and just because they say something doesn’t make it true or the law.

No one can be certain where this goes from here, but my suspicion is that this was more about generating bad headlines for Trump than actually building a criminal case against him. I actually came to that conclusion very early on following AG Merrick Garland’s presser on the matter. I just don’t see the DOJ ignoring the Hillary Clinton precedent regarding the handling of government records, and even if they tried to go that route, there are people on record saying the declassification order existed. It would lead to total chaos if Trump were charged (and presumably convicted given the DC jury pool) with a crime that the government gave Clinton a pass on, and she didn’t have the use of presidential powers as a defense.

Still, another part of me feels like they have to go all the way here. If the DOJ stops short, it only further exposes the raid for what it so obviously was. The administration has painted itself into a corner, and that may bring about some more bad decision-making before this is all said and done.

    The aftermath and outcome(s) of this example of dictatorial over-reach, (along w/ MANY others) presently hang in the balance. It all depends on how judges are going to rule. Will they rule according to the Constitution and rule of law? Or are they going to circumvent/ignore one or both, (as in the case of the MANY illegal actions of Hillary Clinton), and rule against those principles, allowing injustice after injustice to occur and stay on the books of history. We desperately need ALL ruling judges in all judging arenas to think long and hard on both their oath to the Constitution and rule of law and DO THEIR JOB accordingly.

      Well said. Unfortunately I’m not optimistic this will ever occur because most judges are just as corrupt as most politicians and are controlled by ego, power, and greed. We no longer have a Justice System – we have an Injustice System that we can no longer trust will be ruled according to our Constitution or Bill of Rights. Unfortunately things have gone too far and I believe it’s no longer possible to drain the swamp – which the existing swamp creatures in D.C. will do everything in their power to prevent from happening.

    The Obama/Biden regime has quickly turned the United States into a Communist Banana Republic where corrupt Liberals can do as they please with total impunity while Conservatives are shamed, canceled, silenced and persecuted simply for voicing their opposition to the liberal insanity occurring in our country today. If it’s already gotten to this point now, then sadly our future generations will surely be doomed to living without the rights and freedoms this country was founded on, and they’ll be forced to exist under tyrannical authoritarian rule. It’s already happening now, so we can no longer just bury our heads in the sand in denial.
