NBC Confirmed FBI’s Overreach in Mar-a-Lago Raid…Biden Can’t Hide
The Biden Justice Department has been playing defense since the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence Mar-a-Lago. They have maintained that the search was narrowly defined and it was of the highest priority because of sensitive materials that could have included nuclear secrets.
Merrick Garland, the attorney general, defended his decision to the press, but now what is being revealed is poking holes in their defensive stand. Could it be that the DOJ has functioned as Biden’s political Gestapo?
According to NBC News, the Department of Justice and the FBI seized documents that were protected by executive privilege. They took Trump’s passports and records that were protected by the attorney-client privilege. This wasn’t a narrow search, it was intended to be a large net to catch whatever they could.
NBC reported this information:
“Some of the documents recovered during the FBI’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort “potentially contain attorney-client privileged information,” Justice Department lawyers said Monday.
The Justice Department acknowledged the find in submission to U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, who’s weighing a request from Trump’s team to appoint a special master to review some of the documents the FBI seized as part of its national security-related criminal investigation.
In an order Saturday, Cannon instructed the Justice Department to file under seal “a more detailed Receipt for Property specifying all property seized” and said that she wanted to be told “the status of Defendant’s review of the seized property, including any filter review conducted by the privilege review team and any dissemination of materials beyond the privilege review team.”
The judge said over the weekend that her “preliminary intent” is to grant Trump’s request for a special master, but that she would not rule until she hears the government’s arguments at a hearing in West Palm Beach on Thursday.
If Cannon grants Trump’s request, the special master would be in charge of reviewing documents for issues of privilege, not the highly sensitive records at the heart of the government’s investigation.”
The proof of government overreach is mounting, stay tuned for more.
