Trump demands release of un-redacted search warrant affidavit

The Former President is doing a full push to unredacted the release of the affidavit which led to the search warrant of his Mar-a-Lago property. The move would carry a risk for both Trump and the Justice Department. 

“Pres. Trump has made his view clear that the American people should be permitted to see the unredacted affidavit related to the raid and breakin of his home,” said Taylor Budowich, a spokesperson for Trump.

Judge Bruce Reinhart ordered the Department of Justice to suggest a redactions of the document by next Thursday, The Hill reports.

Budowich added, “Today, magistrate Judge Reinhard rejected the DOJ’s [Justice Department’s] cynical attempt to hide the whole affidavit from Americans. However, no redactions should be necessary and the whole affidavit should be released, given the Democrats’ penchant for using redactions to hide government corruption, just like they did with the Russia hoax.”

Trump supporters and Trump himself have for the last few years believed the Department of Justice and FBI have a bias against the former president.

Trump was quick to respond on his social media platform posting, “There is no way to justify the unannounced RAID of Mar-a-Lago. But, in the interest of TRANSPARENCY, I call for the immediate release of the completely Unredacted Affidavit pertaining to this horrible and shocking BREAK-IN. Also, the Judge on this case should recuse!”
