AG Garland moves to unseal Mar-a-Lago warrant, defends DOJ

8/12/2022 12:20:00 AM

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced today that he’s asked a court to unseal the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. Will Team Trump agree?

'This is really Merrick Garland calling Donald Trump's bluff,' Andrew Weissmann, former FBI general counsel, says. 'Now the ball is in [Trump's] court to say, 'oh wait, I want to hide this from the American public.''

Attorney General Merrick Garland announced today that he’s asked a court to unseal the Mar-a-Lago search warrant. Will Team Trump agree?

At a Justice Department press conference this afternoon, Attorney General Merrick Garlandaddressed the subject publicly for the first time, and he made some news:“Just now, the Justice Department has filed a motion in the southern district of Florida to unseal a search warrant and property receipt relating to a court-approved search that the FBI conducted earlier this week. That search was a premises located in Florida belonging to the former president.”

Garland added that the former president’s counsel was on site during the search, and his lawyer received the court-approved materials, in keeping with standard law enforcement practices. (This is worth noting, of course, because there have been some suggestions to the contrary in conservative media.)

Whaat do you do when you aar sad? LOL Not happening as merely hour ago, just after Garland called the challenge President Trump called for the court to release them. Biden and the democrats are not getting away this time. andrew weissmann has made millions going after trump..he is a socialist hack..in it for the money

He’s not fighting the unsealing. Clinton destroyed hers and left American soldiers in Benghazi. Well he didn't say that. He said release them! Anything coming out of Weissmann's mouth is approved by Hillary Clinton. Checkmate👏🏾 Trump knows how to control the lib dems you will not get his ans until the last min. it drivers the SOCIALIST NUTS

Well that wasn’t long! Buying trump has to be putins best move!!!! Buy one and get lindsey, rubio, cruz and others for free : ( Merrick Garland flip the script on Trump's false narratives. It's paperwork. I'm not understanding the hype. No doubt they dotted the i & crossed the t. This doesn't change intent. Was anything of substance actually recovered or do we make that up as we go along!? ~~This is the real question. One we'll never have a solid answer to.

Lmao This aged poorly rather quickly… Please unseal them! Taking nuclear documents out of the white house is Treason & Trump should be branded as a spy if it was any other person they would have been charged with spying and thrown into prison no wonder he dint want to open the warrant & make it public where are the Republican dogs now ?

Trump hasn't been this upset since McDonald's discontinued the McRib.

So much 🐂💩in that clip Garland:'Federal law, longstanding department rules, and our ethical obligations prevent me from providing further details as to the basis of the search at this time.' So releasing the warrant wouldn't explain the BASIS WHY DOJ was seeking to obtain it He could let them release it, and we will all know what he did Or deny it’s release and admit guilt. Checkmate 😂

Oh Donny Boy, the stripes, the stripes are calling
