As a jury prepares to indict him, Biden’s decision to break into Trump’s Mar-a-Lago backfires
The Trump legal team cuts through the DOJ’s political charade, saying that Biden would suffer a lot as a result.
Unelected employees at President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice don’t seem to enjoy the concept of unbiased supervision.
The FBI obtained a number of allegedly sensitive papers during the historic FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
The materials, according to Trump’s staff, were declassified. The DOJ could not be trusted, according to a motion submitted by Trump’s attorneys on August 22. As a result, the motion claimed, a disinterested “special master” should be appointed to review the documents in order to “preserve the sanctity of executive communications and other privileged materials.”
The DOJ requested that the motion be “partially stayed” after Judge Aileen Cannon approved Trump’s request authorizing the appointment of a special master. The DOJ claimed that the appointment of an impartial third party would result in “irreparable harm” to both the government and the general public.
Giving Trump a fair shot seems to be bad for the American people.
However, you shouldn’t be shocked since nobody is, really.
Since the day of his inauguration, the Biden administration’s Justice Department has been after Trump, and it doesn’t appear that he will let up anytime soon.
Such hazards to the general public and the government, according to a countermotion submitted by Trump’s team, were significantly overblown. Trump himself was essentially the only party in this situation who may suffer “irreparable loss” if a special master was not appointed.
The argument said that if not examined by an impartial third party, potentially sensitive material may be utilized by the government to hurt Trump.
But when Trump’s attorneys emphasized how the DOJ had erroneously construed the Presidential Records Act, that was when the actual death blow was struck.
In essence, Trump always had a right to hold onto the Mar-a-Lago documents. Not only does this fact render the DOJ raid and subsequent investigation unnecessary, but it also suggests those moves were a huge abuse of power.
No wonder they’re hoping to avoid facing a neutral third party.
“The [Presidential Records Act] accords any President extraordinary discretion to categorize all his or her records as either Presidential or personal records, and established case law provides for very limited judicial oversight over such categorization. The PRA further contains no provision authorizing or allowing for any criminal enforcement,” Trump’s motion read.
What is evident with regard to all of the materials seized is that they do not belong with the Department of Justice but rather with either President Trump (as his personal property to be returned in accordance with Rule 41(g)) or with NARA.
