Trump Team Obliterates DOJ Filing Regarding FBI Raid

Today’s most poignant and pointed political fracas is certainly the fallout of the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago; former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate.

In that raid, armed FBI agents spent nearly 9 hours combing through the residence and adjacent areas, allegedly on the hunt for documents at the behest of the National archives. Suddenly, there were reports of classified and “top secret” materials being a part of the cache, and the Bureau sprung into action.

Trump’s legal team then requested a third party overseer, in an effort to prevent the prevalent political bias of the Biden administration’s jackboots from infecting the process.  The DOJ filed a motion within the court seeking to prevent this “special master” from being appointed, and now Trump has responded to that filing.

Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers Wednesday slammed the Justice Department for an allegedly “extraordinary” filing arguing against appointing a “special master” to review documents taken by the FBI during a raid of his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Trump’s attorneys said the department was advocating for effectively unchecked power in overseeing its investigation into Trump. And they slammed the department for including a photograph of documents with classified labels it took from Trump’s home during its investigation into the former president for allegedly possessing classified national security documents.

“The United States Attorney’s Office, has filed an extraordinary document with this Court, suggesting that the DOJ, and the DOJ alone, should be entrusted with the responsibility of evaluating its unjustified pursuit of criminalizing a former President’s possession of personal and Presidential records in a secure setting,” Trump’s lawyers wrote.

It gets even more brutal:

“[T]he Government twists the framework of responding to a motion for a Special Master into an all-encompassing challenge to any judicial consideration, presently or in the future, of any aspect of its unprecedented behavior in this investigation,” Trump’s lawyers also said.

“Even yesterday, the Government’s Response gratuitously included a photograph of allegedly classified materials, pulled from a container and spread across the floor for dramatic effect,” Trump’s attorneys said later in the brief.

Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing whatsoever, having declared on several occasions that he had declassified any materials delivered to Mar-a-Lago after his presidency.
