Former President Donald Trump has reacted to the unsealed affidavit that helped greenlight the warrant leading to the FBI’s raid on his Mar-a-Lago residence; Trump says the heavily redacted document proves nothing.
Trump blasted the FBI and the DOJ in a statement on TRUTH Social.
“Affidavit heavily redacted!!! Nothing mentioned on ‘Nuclear,’ a total public relations subterfuge by the FBI & DOJ, or our close working relationship regarding document turnover – WE GAVE THEM MUCH. Judge Bruce Reinhart should NEVER have allowed the Break-In of my home. He recused himself two months ago from one of my cases based on his animosity and hatred of your favorite President, me. What changed? Why hasn’t he recused himself on this case? Obama must be very proud of him right now!”
Shortly after, Trump added two more quick words in a TRUTH post: “WITCH HUNT!”
From Fox News:
The affidavit was unsealed Friday, after U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart approved the DOJ’s proposed redactions to the document.
Approximately 20 pages of the 38-page affidavit were either significantly or fully redacted.
“The government is conducting a criminal investigation concerning the improper removal and storage of classified information in unauthorized spaces, as well as the unlawful concealment or removal of government records,” the affidavit states.
