Attorney General Merrick Garland gave new information about the FBI raid on Mar-A-Lago at a Department of Justice press conference Thursday afternoon.

Garland revealed that the Justice Department has filed a motion Thursday afternoon to unseal the search warrant of Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home.

“All Americans are entitled to the even application of the law, to due process of the law, and to the presumption of innocence,” Garland said.

Trump posted on his social media website, Truth Social, that the FBI would not let anyone, “including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged.”

“Copies of both the warrant, and the FBI property receipt were provided on the day of the search to the former President’s council, who was on site during the search. The search warrant was authorized by a federal court upon the required finding of probable cause,” Garland said.

Republican against the FBI and AG Merrick Garland

Many senior Republicans took to Twitter Monday evening with the message “defund the FBI,” including Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, claiming that the Biden administration was using the Justice Department to go after a future political opponent. 

White House Correspondent, Kelly O’Donnell, for NBC News said that a senior White House official told her that Biden was not informed ahead of time of Garland’s press conference.

 

It is unclear how long the motion will take to unseal the search warrant, however Trump has possessed a copy for the last three days and is able to reveal its contents at any time.
