What a complete and total overreach of power by the Biden Regime. This moment will go down in history as one of America’s darkest.
Attorney General Merrick Garland brazenly admitted on Thursday that he was “personally responsible” for ordering the FBI hit on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. The AG also said that the Justice Department requested permission from the federal court to unseal the court-approved search warrant that authorized its raid on the Former President’s home.

Garland also took the opportunity to address any Americans who dare attack the upstanding men and women serving in the FBI.

The DOJ requested to unseal the search warrant approved by Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart on Aug. 5, as well as two attachments included in the warrant. Authorities also requested a redacted property receipt listing items the FBI seized from Trump’s Florida home on Monday.
The DOJ highlighted in the filing that Trump, through his legal counsel, was provided a copy of those documents when it executed its search on Monday.
Noting that the warrant was executed on Monday, the Justice Department said in its filing Thursday that unsealing the warrant and its attachments at this time would not “impair court functions.”
The Justice Department added that Trump should have the opportunity to lodge objections to its request to unseal the warrant and its attachments with regard to any “legitimate privacy interests” and other injuries that could result from the public release of the materials.
Reinhart ordered the Justice Department on Thursday about the hour after it filed its motion to consult with Trump’s lawyers and return to the court by 3 p.m. Friday advising whether the former president opposes the motion to unseal the warrant.
A senior Justice Department official told Newsweek on Wednesday that the FBI intended to deny Trump a photo opportunity by conducting the raid of his home while the former president was away in New York.
The FBI’s raid was reportedly related to boxes of materials Trump brought back to the Florida resort after he left office in January 2021.
Now the media is claiming “Nuclear Documents” were being hoarded by the Former President, according to “anonymous sources” in the FBI.
The Justice Department’s motion to unseal the Mar-a-Lago search warrant was filed by United States Attorney Juan Antonio Gonzalez and Jay Bratt, the chief of the Counterintelligence and Export Control Section of the National Security Division.
Can America ever recover from a blunder so severe and idiotic?
