A judge on Thursday ordered that the search warrant affidavit be made public in part. This helps to find out what gave the Ministry of Justice a reason to apply for a search warrant.
Stateside of the former president Donald Trump’s the affidavit regarding the search of the home is scheduled to be released on Friday.
A judge ordered Thursday that the U.S. Department of Justice must release a statement supporting the FBI’s search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
The statement reveals the evidence that gave the Ministry of Justice a reason to apply for a search warrant.
Last week judge Bruce Reinhart stated that there is no reason why the statement should be completely sealed. The entire statement is not about to be published, but it is an edited version.
Reinhart stated last week that the content could turn into “meaningless gibberish” with the edits.
On Thursday, Reinhart stated that part of the statement should be kept secret. This is to protect that, for example, the identities of witnesses are not revealed.
It’s about is a very exceptional case. Trump has claimed that the home search is about political revenge. He has also demanded that the document be sealed.
The FBI conducted an extraordinary search of Trump’s mansion in early August. Secret state documents have been found during the home search. A total of more than 300 classified documents have been found in the manor. The United States has recovered these documents in three batches. The third time, the FBI went to get documents with a search warrant.
The investigation is about whether Trump violated the Espionage Act. In addition, two other criminal titles are used in the investigation.
