    Biden’s DOJ Ups The Ante With Another Move Against Trump After Mar-a-Lago Raid

    Published on

    Even while courts are taking action to try to restore a semblance of balance to the overt and overwhelming politicization of the country’s top security and law enforcement institutions, Democrat Merrick Garland, the US Attorney General, and his henchmen just can’t quit prosecuting President Donald J. Trump.

    The Department of Justice (DOJ), which is in charge of the raid, is freaking out as if they have something to hide after Trump won a few legal battles this week, including his request for and subsequent receipt of his preferred special master to review the documents the FBI took during a very bizarre raid on his Florida family home last month.

    Americans are becoming accustomed to the notion that the FBI and the DOJ are hiding something.

    Conservative Brief’s Carmine Sabia stated that ““Attorneys for the Department of Justice have filed another motion for a stay in the judge’s order to appoint a special master to review documents that were seized during the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago.”

    To “a discrete set of just over 100 records marked as classified” and “whose unauthorized retention may constitute a crime,” the Department of Justice said it “seeks a limited but critical stay.”

    It claimed that markings on the documents it wants to inspect demonstrate that an unauthorized disclosure “reasonably could be expected to result in damage to the national security,” including “exceptionally grave damage.”

    The letter to Judge Aileen Cannon stated that the government’s stay application “The government’s stay motion demonstrates that the government is likely to succeed on the merits because Plaintiff cannot plausibly establish any property interest in or privilege.”

    “These records are at the core of the government’s investigation, and the government’s inability to review and use them significantly constrains its investigation,” it stated.  “The compelled disclosure of records marked as classified to a special master further harms the Executive Branch’s interest in limiting access to such materials absent any valid purpose served by their review.”

    “It came in response to a motion filed by attorneys for former President Donald Trump in which they argued against a stay,” according to Sabia.

    The DOJ added, “[Trump] instead references other seized records that contain personal information or could be subject to attorney-client privilege, none of which are at issue in this stay motion. “As to the records marked as classified, Plaintiff asserts that the government has not ‘proven’ their classification status.”

    The motion was submitted on Monday as the former president referred to the FBI’s seizure of records from his Mar-a-Lago residence as a “misguided storage dispute,” according to The Daily Mail.

    As a “sensible preliminary step towards restoring order from chaos,” the former president’s attorneys commended US District Judge Aileen Cannon’s choice to halt the study of his records while they await the appointment of a special master.

    The lawsuit stated: “In what at its core is a document storage dispute that has spiraled out of control, the Government wrongfully seeks to criminalize the possession by the 45th President of his own Presidential and personal records.”

    “What is clear regarding all of the seized materials is that they belong with either President Trump (as his personal property to be returned pursuant to Rule 41(g)) or with NARA, but not with the Department of Justice,” the statement read.

    When Cannon delayed evaluating the records, the government objected, and the Trump campaign retaliated.

    The statement read, “The Government’s stance assumes that if a document has a classification marking, it remains classified irrespective of any actions taken during President Trump’s term in office.”

    Despite Trump asserting in numerous public appearances and pronouncements that he had not taken confidential materials because he had waived their secrecy as commander-in-chief, the ex-attorneys president’s have looked hesitant to make that claim in court.

    Trump’s attorneys clearly contradict him in their court brief, claiming that the Biden administration hasn’t “proved certain materials remain classified,” adding that the matter will be decided “later.”

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    Despite ordering the FBI to temporarily halt its probe, Cannon did let allow a separate review of the documents by the intelligence community to move forward.

    Federal prosecutors argued Thursday that allowing one without the other is unworkable, ‘given that the same senior DOJ and FBI officials are ultimately responsible for supervising the criminal investigation and for ensuring that DOJ and FBI are coordinating appropriately with the [Intelligence Community]’ on its own review. CONTINUE READING…
