The Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
There are overly broad illegal search warrants that are fishing expeditions and then there is this, which is broad to am entirely new level as it literally covers document Donald Trump ever saw as president, even if he wrote a note on a napkin for a fan.
The entire search warrant is in the SCRIBD document below, but take a look at this:
How can every document Donald Trump has ever seen as President somehow become probable cause for a crime? Search warrants are supposed to be, by law, very limited as to what and who is to be searched specific to probable cause. The fact that a low level magistrate judge even signed off on this needs to be examined very closely.
There are certain facts and legal principles when it comes to a President that Americans should to keep in mind when they see the press throwing words like “espionage” around.
1 – There are already several copies of any classified documents made before it hits the president’s desk. So it is not as if the National Archives does not have access to these records, unless of course the DoJ and FBI was hiding them from the National Archives as well.
2 – The president can declassify anything at will and when he does so the classification markings on the documents do not magically vanish like disappearing ink.
3– Like Article 2 of The Constitution says all executive power resides within the president so technically it is impossible for Donald Trump to mishandle classified documents.
4 – If this really was about national security why were key Members of Congress left in the dark? Marco Rubio is Vice Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence which oversees our nation’s intelligence and national security apparatus. Rubio should have been notified as a matter of law, which the FBI/DoJ conveniently ignored.
5 – Donald Trump owns Truth Social which makes him a journalist and a publisher. This may very well mean that he is protected by the Supreme Court decision New York Times v United States. This decision says that journalists who posses and publish classified information are protected by the First Amendment because “Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people. “
The Biden White House, Attorney General Garland, FBI Director Wray, and most every FBI Agent who has a law degree knows this very well.
It is reasonable to assume that at least some of these documents, unclassified by Trump towards the end of his presidency, expose “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” which was the effort to manufacture evidence to frame President Trump with the “Russian collusion” hoax. In short it is likely that DoJ/FBI is trying to cover up their previous crimes.
This might explain why the FBI refused to let Trump’s lawyers observe what was searched and taken. This is unusual. What was the FBI trying to hide?
