I’m guessing kindly old Merrick Garland read some flop sweat:
Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Thursday that the Department of Justice filed a motion to unseal a search warrant and property receipt relating to the search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property.
CNN’s legal analyst Elie Honig described the announcement as a “remarkable and unusual move” because “we essentially saw Merrick Garland call Donald Trump’s bluff.”
In the wake of this search warrant, Trump and his lawyers have two documents, Honig explained on CNN following Garland’s remarks. “One is the search warrant itself with whatever attachments. And the other is this inventory or this receipt.”
These documents have important information about the search. Usually, the Justice Department’s policy is to only speak about things that are on the record with the court. But with this move, Garland is hoping to put these documents in front of Americans, Honig said.
The warrant typically will list logistical information: place to be searched, a general description of items to be searched for, the name of the judge, a deadline by which the DOJ has to execute the search.
But it also sometimes has an attachment, which typically will list the laws that the DOJ has probable cause to believe were violated.
The second document is the inventory or the receipt.
Maybe I was just totally wrong about this guy. That would be my best mistake ever.
. . . Trump says What About All the Documents Obama Took?
Donald Trump posted this to his social network just after Attorney General Merrick Garland asked a judge to unseal the search warrant:
“I continue to ask, what happened to the 33 Million pages of documents taken to Chicago by President Obama? The Fake News Media refuses to talk about that. They want it CANCELED!”
Speaking of complete idiots who should never be allowed anywhere close to an important job:
