Ostensible challenge to the presumed declassification authority of the President presented political as the FBI seized documents from a safe at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on August 8, 2022. Agents staged a photo^ that was released along with a redacted affidavit.
Trump lawyers argue for a ‘special master’ to be appointed to review the seized documents in light of executive privilege, and that request was later granted on September 5th. The documents are alleged to have been illegally stored at Mar-a-Lago since Trump left the White House. What Trump team would call legitimate legal defense and due process, the FBI is calling obstruction.
Trump @ the Wilkes-Barre Rally: “The shameful RAID and break-in of my home, Mar-a-Lago, was a travesty of justice that made a mockery of America’s laws, traditions, and principals.”
