In a recent court filing [Document Here] President Trump through his legal counsel has requested Judge Cannon to unredact and unseal the search warrant affidavit used as the predicate for the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. Apparently, the DOJ have yet to provide President Trump with the constitutionally required predicate documents to support their search.
Additionally, the DOJ previously leaked to media about “empty folders with classified banners” as part of the evidence cache they collected. According to the filing the DOJ has since presented three different versions of their evidence collection list, with the most recent list dropping any claims of “two empty folders with classified banners.”

While asking the court to provide the affidavit to the defense team, the lawyers for President Trump are noting the fourth amendment protects everyone against warrantless searches and seizures, and that same protection also guarantees the target the right to receive and review the claimed justification for the warrant.
The unredacted affidavit is obligated to be supplied so that it can be determined if the search warrant was legally valid and predicated. General search warrants are not legally permitted. The warrant must specify what is being searched and why. The DOJ is fighting against this affidavit release. The Trump lawyers are asking the judge to make a decision.

The issue of compartmented (siloed) information, specifically as a tool and technique of the aloof DC system to retain control and influence, is a matter we have discussed on these pages for several years.
Quite literally anything can be classified as a ‘national security interest’ in the deep state effort to retain the illusion of power over the proles, ie us. It is the exact reason why congress exempts themselves from laws and regulations written for everyone else.
Either the FBI assigned the most incompetent personnel they had to the most high-profile and contentious legal action they can imagine or every investigation of Trump has been a total political witch hunt. In the case of the Mar a Lago raid, everything they’ve done evokes suspicion and doubt. In following up, the DOJ creates more suspicion with their total lack of transparency and suppression of credible information.
Beyond any possible argument, this is a political witch hunt carried out by frightened, desperate fascists.
There’s now photographic proof that the Mar A Lago photo of “top secret” stuff all over a floor was photoshopped!
Some of the headers were added in later, some of the “empty folders” were of FBI origin instead of presidential origin, meaning the FBI did have fake or added documents in their big backpacks.
Instead of stapling the front cover pages to Trump’s stuff, the FBI used paper clips, not done officially.
The FBI isn’t even very good at fake news, but at fake crime, they really suck.
Another swing and a miss.
The New Congress will defund the special counsel. It is another partisan attack and the assignment of special conflicts with the DOJ.
