It is no secret that the Department of Justice (DoJ) and the FBI have acted in bad faith. They meddled in election after election while failing to stop mass shooters and Boston Marathon bombers. A list of some of their law enforcement failures can be found HERE.
The DoJ and FBI issue a search warrant that is not specific and essentially orders that every document in Mar-a-Lago be taken. Such broad search warrants are illegal. When an overly broad warrant is issued it is expected that a motion with the court will be filed, such as in the Project Veritas case, to have the court pick a neutral third party called a “Special Master” to examine the documents to sort out what is pertinent to the specific criminal investigation and what is privileged or otherwise not tied to such an investigation and return them to the owner.
The judge overseeing the Project Veritas case appointed a Special Master, so the DoJ/FBI lied to the judge and went over all of the seized material anyway and tried to hide it form the judge.
Knowing that the search warrant was overly broad and expecting this to happen, when Trump filed his motion on court to have a Special Master appointed the DoJ/FBI brought in whatever resources were necessary and went over all of the documents anyway instead of setting them aside as waiting for the court to rule.
The DoJ/FBI claim to have a separate “taint team” who goes over the documents and pretend like they are a special master, but considering how long the FBI/DoJ has been acting criminally in bad faith, that is akin to the FBI claiming, “Yes an FBI agent took Melania’s underwear, but it’s okay because we had another agent try them on.” In one of the videos below Defense Attorney and journalist Greta Van Sustern explains why the very idea of an FBI “taint team” is a farce:
When you say taint team we are talking about career prosecutors and investigators, who have never been criminal defense lawyers, spent their whole career working for the government, they hang around people who work for the Department of Justice and they are making the determination of attorney client privilege when they have never even been practicing lawyers with actual clients. Are those the people making the decision?
Continue below as it gets even worse.
The Justice Department announced in a court filing Monday that they already reviewed documents seized from former President Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago, and that they identified a “limited set” of documents that could include information protected by attorney-client privilege.
The DOJ said they would provide more information in a separate filing, but they said that prior to the court issuing a preliminary order to appoint a special master to go through the documents, a privilege review team went through the documents. A special master is an independent, court-appointed individual who in this case would be placed in charge of reviewing documents. A privilege review team consists of federal personnel not involved with the investigation itself, whose role is to sift out privileged information.
“[T]he Privilege Review Team … identified a limited set of materials that potentially contain attorney-client privileged information, completed its review of those materials, and is in the process of following the procedures set forth in paragraph 84 of the search warrant affidavit to address potential privilege disputes, if any,” the DOJ filing said.
While in office a president can declassify any document at will. That president has full access to any document from his administration. Former presidents are allowed to have copies of their documents for the purpose of writing a memoir and other purposes for a period of years. Also places such as a president’s home and their presidential library routinely get certified as a presidential records facility. Mar-a-Lago was in the process of getting such a certification at the time of the raid.
The search warrant said a witness saw documents that were “marked or labeled classified or top secret.” Legally that means nothing. Why? Go to the FBI Museum or the CIA Museum and they have documents on display that are marked classified and top secret. Those documents were declassified long ago. Such markings are not made of disappearing ink and do not go away.
President Trump, just as Obama, Clinton and Bush before him, had a standing order to declassify all documents he removed from secured facilities. President Trump also issued an order in writing declassifying any document having to do with the Trump/Russian collusion hoax.
Nothing in the FBI’s affidavit that says that Trump was not authorized to have documents from his own administration. To say that Trump was not allowed to have access to these records is constitutionally absurd.
When the FBI takes anything in the process of serving a search warrant the FBI is required to give a detailed, itemized receipt. After the Trump raid the receipt was so vague it is almost akin to the FBI taking every item out of your bedroom and handing you a receipt saying “one bedroom.”
When there has been a breach of classified information to unauthorized persons and/or a foreign power the government is supposed to conduct a “damage assessment.” Hillary Clinton had top secret special compartmented secrets on her illegal unsecured email server and no damage assessment was done even though government security officials believed that her server was breached by hackers.

However, even though President Trump’s documents were locked in a secure location and guarded by the Secret service and video surveillance the FBI plans to conduct a damage assessment anyways. They plan to do this without showing any real evidence but to make accusations and spread them in the corporate press.
The videos below are from four famed attorneys who go into much further detail. Canadian attorney Viva Frei, famed litigator Robert Barnes (who represents the Pfizer whistleblowers), Robert Gouveia and former Supreme Court law clerk Mike Davis on the upcoming hearing for a Special Master to review the documents taken from Mar-a-Lago. Defense Attorney and journalist Greta Van Sustern explains why the very idea of an FBI “taint team” is a farce. Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch comments. Judicial Watch litigates more records cases than anyone we are aware of. Former Chief of staff or the House Intelligence Committee Kash Patel speaks with Tucker Carlson which is very informative.
