  27. August 10, 2022 at 12:42 pm

    Team Trump says it’ll keep Mar-a-Lago search warrant under wraps
    The left and right both urged members of Team Trump to voluntarily disclose the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. They don’t want to.

    “The process wasn’t entirely easy. In order for the Justice Department to get a search warrant for Mar-a-Lago,
    law enforcement officials needed to explain to a court where they wanted to search and what they wanted to search for. As we discussed yesterday, they also had to demonstrate probable cause to the court, explaining why they believed they’d find evidence of a specific federal crime.

    In this case, they succeeded.
    The Justice Department obtained a search warrant and the FBI executed it. As a result, three entities have the document: The court, federal law enforcement, and Donald Trump and his team.”

      “If the basis for the warrant were flimsy, disclosing it would prove Republicans right.
      If the rationale for the search lacked merit, releasing the warrant would help on this front, too.

      It was against this backdrop that observers from the left and the right encouraged Team Trump to simply make the voluntary disclosure, bringing key facts into the light.

      All of which led to, “No, we’re not releasing a copy of the warrant.”

    “after a fierce campaign against Clinton
    in which he called for her to be jailed
    for her handling of classified material— (Trump) signed a law in 2018
    that stiffened the penalty
    for the unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents
    from one year to five years,
    turning it into a felony offense.”

    President BIden yesterday at signing of S.3373:

    Before I begin today, I want to say a word about the news that came out today relative to the economy. Actually, I just want to say a number: zero.

    Today, we received news that our economy had zero percent inflation in the month of July. Zero percent.

    Here’s what that means: While the price of some things go up — went up last month, the price of other things went down by the same amount. The result: zero inflation last month. But people are hurting.
    But zero inflation last month.

    Economists look at a measure of inflation that ignores food and energy prices, and they call it “core inflation.” That’s about the lowest amount in several years — several months.

    When you couple that with last week’s booming jobs report of 528,000 jobs created last month and 3.5 percent unemployment, it underscores the kind of economy we’ve been building.

    We’re seeing a stronger labor market where jobs are booming and Americans are working. And we’re seeing some signs that inflation may be beginning to moderate.”

    Why Presidential Papers Don’t Belong to Presidents

    “Why are the call logs, drafts, speeches, handwritten notes and other documents from Trump’s term in office in the possession of the National Archives?

    “Presidential records are the property of the United States government and are administered by the National Archives,” said Meghan Ryan Guthorn, acting deputy chief operating officer of the agency. “So, all presidential papers, materials and records in the custody of the National Archives, whether donated, seized or governed by the Presidential Records Act, are owned by the federal government.”

    The Presidential Records Act of 1978 established that all presidential records are owned by the public and automatically transfer into the custody of the National Archives as soon as a commander-in-chief leaves office. All presidential libraries and museums are part of the National Archives. Former President Barack Obama’s presidential library will be the first to be fully digital.”


  49. August 11, 2022 at 12:47 pm

    Why hasn’t Trump released the Mar-a-Lago search warrant?

    I do believe at some point somebody will get this search warrant, whether it’s us at the New York Times or one of the other outlets,” says Luke Broadwater. “We will see the answers of exactly what happened here.”

    About ‘persecution’….call on the little russian to release the warrant and the manifest !!
    My local paper yesterday: “AG still silent after overreach”.
    Do they really not know the DOJ cannot speak about an investigation? Or that reportedly everything was done to resolve this without a warrant over the past year? Why would anyone trust donald trump with classified documents? You have to pursue evidence of a crime. Trump himself raised the penalty for this serious offense and risk to U.S. National Security. So he gets to spout off his lies and incitement = grifting $$$ while the law is silent?
    Call his bluff.

    Key point in AG Garland’s statement: DOJ was willing to do this quietly, *without* making a public spectacle of the search.

    It was *President Trump’s* decision to make it public that turned this all into a spectacle (and is leading DOJ to move to unseal part of the application).

    “Several Republicans argued this week that the Justice Department should’ve just subpoenaed the materials Donald Trump took. The trouble is, it did.”

    “But federal law enforcement had apparently already exhausted those other options.
    Officials asked for all of the materials the former president took inappropriately.
    When that didn’t work, they subpoenaed the documents, and even met directly with members of Trump’s team.

    When that also didn’t work, then the FBI showed up at Mar-a-Lago.”

    “Classified documents relating to nuclear weapons
    were among the items FBI agents sought
    in a search of former president Donald Trump’s Florida residence on Monday,
    according to people familiar with the investigation. Experts in classified information said the unusual search underscores deep concern among government officials about the types of information they thought could be located at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and potentially in danger of falling into the wrong hands.

    The article added the newspaper’s sources did not shed light on whether the materials in question “involved weapons belonging to the United States or some other nation.”
