Garland Sat on Mar-a-Lago Warrant for Weeks, Raising Questions of Urgency

If you listen to folks on the left, (which isn’t always recommended), you’re likely to hear a great deal of agitation and angst when they discuss former President Donald Trump.

Democrats like to portray Trump as an immediate “threat to democracy”, or maybe even the world as a whole, and these claims only grow bolder as his detractors find themselves coming down with a case of the barely-fictional affliction known as “Trump Derangement Syndrome”.

But new reports out of the Justice Department seem to suggest that this urgent characterization of Trump’s potential trouble is inaccurate, and that Attorney General Merrick Garland was in no hurry to approve the warrant used to raid the former Commander in Chief’s Mar-a-Lago estate last week.

Attorney General Merrick Garland reportedly waited weeks to approve the search warrant of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago private residence.

While the establishment media suggested “classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items the FBI” sought in the raid of Mar-a-Lago, it took weeks for Garland to make up his mind on whether to approve the warrant, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

“The decision had been the subject of weeks of meetings between senior Justice Department and FBI officials, the people said,” the Journal reported. “The warrant allowed agents last Monday to seize classified information and other presidential material from Mar-a-Lago.”

In an effort to get to the bottom of this mess, Trump and some media organizations have been demanding the release of the affidavit used to procure the search warrant, and a hearing is now scheduled for Thursday to consider the possibility.
