Court Hears Arguments for Unsealing Records in FBI Raid of Trump’s Home
By: Newsmax, 18 August 2022:
A court considered on Thursday whether to unseal records containing evidence presented by the U.S. Justice Department to justify its search of Donald Trump’s Florida home last week, in a case pitting news organizations against judicial officials.
News outlets are trying to persuade a federal judge that the public deserves to see the evidence it used to secure court approval for the search at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
But the Justice Department has opposed the release of the affidavit containing the evidence, which gave investigators probable cause to believe crimes were committed at Trump’s Palm Beach home.
Jay Bratt, the head of the department’s counterintelligence and export control section, told the judge that releasing the affidavit is not in the public interest because it could harm the ongoing probe.
“There is another public interest at stake and that is the public interest that criminal investigations are able to go forward unimpeded,” he said.
The search was part of a federal investigation into whether Trump illegally removed documents when he left office in January 2021 after losing the presidential election to Democrat Joe Biden.
The Justice Department is investigating violations of three laws, including a provision in the Espionage Act that prohibits the possession of national defense information and another statute that makes it a crime to knowingly destroy, conceal or falsify records with the intent to obstruct an investigation.
