Motive Clear, DOJ Search Warrant Was to Seize Every Single Document During Entirety of President Trump Term in Office, Regardless of Classification

A lot of people are discussing the recently released search warrant authorized by a sketchy judge in Florida.  For the best legal analysis, I would direct people to our friend Techno Fog via substack: SEE HERE – Techno is, and has been, totally dialed in on a granular level throughout the Trump term in office.

I would emphasize one major point and draw attention to something in the background that almost no-one noticed years ago.

First, the search warrant was not specific, was not detailed, was not drawn out to avoid targeting ancillary items unrelated to the DOJ mission at heart.  The warrant itself was structured to seize every scintilla of documentary evidence, seen, created, or produced during President Trump’s term in office.  Literally every shred of paper. [WARRANT LINK]

This issue stands out for a host of reasons.  One of them speaks to the mindset of a judge who would authorize the raid itself.  What judge would authorize a raid on the home of the president with the parameters to seize “Any government and/or presidential record created between January 20, 2017 and January 20, 2021?”

That’s literally everything, including Christmas cards, notes, letters of appreciation from Americans, internal correspondence, the works.  Every shred of documentary evidence associated with the office of the President from the day he stepped into office until the day he left.  That’s the parameters for the seizure.

If that doesn’t showcase the targeting effort, nothing will.  That is an absurd demand that no president in the history of this nation has ever faced.  No DOJ official in any capacity past or present would ever consider that an appropriate parameter for a document seizure, until now.  THAT showcases the intensity of the DOJ and FBI effort to target Donald J Trump.

Against that backdrop I would also draw attention to something almost everyone forgot or didn’t know.

The same DOJ voices that are behind this current effort are the same voices that literally, and unlawfully, took every single document from the President Trump transition team in 2017.

Most people have forgotten, but in a massive breach of established protocol and legal structure, the Robert Mueller special counsel illegally took custody of the Trump transition documents from every official who was then entering office.   The issue was only discovered mid-December of 2017 [pdf link]:

From the letter:

Not only did the General Services Administration give the Mueller special counsel all of the Trump transition team information, but the special counsel lied about asking for it and receiving it.

What we see today in the search warrant from the Mar-a-Lago raid is an extension of this exact same DOJ effort.  It is one long continuum.

There is no greater example of political targeting than what we are witnessing right now.

(Techno) […] Garland also proclaimed yesterday that “the Department of Justice would speak through its court filings and its work.” Nobody believes that. Certainly Garland doesn’t. But he lies to the public anyway. It’s the height of cynicism.

No doubt the DOJ is speaking to its friends in the media on background or off the record. We couldn’t notice that yesterday, after Garland’s statement, it was leaked to the Washington Post that “classified documents relating to nuclear weapons were among the items FBI agents sought in a search of former president Donald Trump’s Florida residence.” (more)
