    Federal Judge Rejects Biden DOJ’s Request To Charge Trump

    Published on

    The Biden Department of Justice and the Biden FBI’s search of the Trump family’s Florida residence set off a complex web of legal entanglements for both parties. The raid was an unusual step against a former president, and the legal system is currently volleying back and forth as judges make conflicting rulings.

    Despite the fact that the FBI had already visited the location of the boxes of documents at Trump’s invitation and there was a requirement by the FBI documented for extra locks on the storage facility where the files were located, the FBI claimed that they were looking for “classified” documents that the former president shouldn’t have in his possession.

    The former president of the United States has repeatedly claimed in public that he has previously worked cooperatively with the FBI on the matter, that the files in question were those that he personally declassified before leaving the White House, and that his possession of them was necessary because they were intended for his upcoming presidential museum. Documents that have been declassified keep their original “classified” markings.

    Trump asked for a special master to be a witness and intermediary between Trump and the FBI during the document review process. That request was granted, and a special master was chosen for this particular task. The legal team representing Donald Trump was handed a setback on Thursday when his attempt to establish a special master to supervise the confidential materials failed. Trump first prevailed on that motion, halting the DOJ probe, but a later judicial panel reversed the decision, allowing the inquiry to proceed.

    Given that Trump was fairly chosen as the special master, the reversal is troubling for his team, and additional legal action is being taken against him in the case.

    In the ongoing legal battle over the classified information, the DOJ is reportedly attempting to bring Trump and his legal team in contempt, according to various sources, according to Slay News. When a subpoena was issued in May ordering Trump to turn over all “documents with classified markings” (which may include records that had been declassified), the DOJ claimed the Trump team of lawyers was not responding to the subpoena in an appropriate manner. Considering that Trump was not the target of the subpoena, he chose not to abide by it.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    The Guardian went on to not that “If the Trump legal team could not find someone to certify under oath that all documents bearing classified marking s had been returned, the department is said to have communicated that it would seek a judicial sanction.”

    Of course, Trump’s position is that he has a right to the documents, and that they were unlawfully seized, not handed over.

    Now there has been a ruling in that matter. A federal judge has rejected the request from Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) to charge President Donald Trump with contempt over documents seized by the FBI from his Mar-a-Lago home in August. CONTINUE READING…
