Trump Calls DOJ's Bluff, Demands Release of Affidavit

Linkedin Share

While the Department of Justice has suggested that their willingness to release the search warrant used to send the FBI into Mar-a-Lago should be proof enough of their transparency and their integrity, there are many within the GOP who refute that idea altogether.

In the eyes of many, the only way to truly understand the situation and the purported justification for the raid would be to see the affidavit that was used to obtain the warrant.

This week, former President Donald Trump added his voice to the chorus of conservatives demanding to see this all-important document.

“[I]n the interest of TRANSPARENCY, I call for the immediate release of the completely Unredacted Affidavit pertaining to this horrible and shocking BREAK-IN,” Trump wrote on social media.

The release of the affidavit would reveal the facts used to justify the raid, a decision that Attorney General Merrick Garland said was not taken “lightly” and only after taking “less intrusive means.”

The former President broke the issue down succinctly.

Trump criticized the Justice Department, arguing there was no way to justify the raid of a former president by the administration of a current president.

Without the affidavit’s release, there is likely no way to prevent doubt from existing within the MAGA Movement, and the FBI will have a difficult time earning the trust of this enormous voting bloc.
