Americans are still in shock over Joe Biden’s weaponization of the DOJ.
Never before has a former president been targeted in such a partisan way.
And Merrick Garland made one move to clean up his dirty raid of Mar-a-Lago.
Joe Biden sicced the FBI on his predecessor, and potentially his chief rival in the 2024 election.
It was an unprecedented move that was justified because Orange Man Bad.
But many questions have been raised about Attorney General Merrick Garland’s raid on Donald Trump’s home.
The goal posts keep moving; first Trump was said to be in possession of nuclear secrets, but that “bombshell report” was walked back.
Now, Trump is said to have been in possession of classified documents, which he had the plenary power to declassify when he was president.
If the FBI was so concerned about the documents, they likely would have told him to do more than simply put a new lock on them upon inspection in early June.
Trump called for a special master to review the documents seized by the FBI, and a judge granted that request.
However, Garland appealed the maneuver.
It seems as though the Biden administration is not interested in transparency.
Axios reported that “the Department of Justice on Thursday filed a motion to appeal a federal judge’s ruling to allow a special master to review evidence seized from former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence last month…The notice of appeal comes three days after Judge Aileen Cannon ruled on Monday that a special master should be appointed ‘to review the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney-client and/or executive privilege.’”
Trump claims that the FBI took privileged documents as well as tax information.
The Democrats normalized these tactics when they raided the law offices of Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney.
Similarly, the January 6th hearings have been used as a pretext to go after any and all Trump allies.
The DOJ argued in its filing that a review of the documents “cannot be readily segregated from the Department of Justice’s and Federal Bureau of Investigation’s activities in connection with the ongoing criminal investigation…Moreover, the government and the public are irreparably injured when a criminal investigation of matters involving risks to national security is enjoined…The government and the public would suffer irreparable harm absent a stay.”
In other words, Garland is using “national security” as a justification for concealing his clear and obvious witch hunt against Trump.
The Democrats will stop at nothing in pursuit of silencing Donald Trump and his supporters.
