Although former president Donald Trump is still incensed at the FBI’s search of his Mar-a-Lago home, he did discover a bright spot.
The former president claimed that among other private stuff, his medical records had been taken, although the records reveal that he is in excellent health.
Not only did the FBI raid and break-in at my home, Mar-a-Lago, steal my passports, but it has recently come to light through court filings that they also illegally took my full and highly confidential medical file and history, with all the bells and whistles (at least they’ll see that I’m very healthy, an absolutely perfect physical specimen! ), plus personal Tax Records (Illegal to take), a lawyer/client/privileged information, a categorical NO, NO. Days of a soviet union”, he said.
ties. This highlights concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about classified material stashed in the Florida property.
Some of the recovered documents provide details on highly classified American operations that are kept so carefully under wraps that many senior national security officials are unaware of them. According to people familiar with the search, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private details of an ongoing investigation, only the president, some members of his Cabinet, or a near-Cabinet level official could authorize other government officials to know specifics of these special access programs.
There are still many people who think this is a witch hunt, including the former president.
The director of national intelligence, John Ratcliffe, a former congressman from Texas who Trump appointed, told Fox News last week that, based on his observations, the bureau “didn’t discover what they were looking” for.
“I was a former United States attorney and federal prosecution. Let me tell you what this is about. Good prosecutors play it straight when they have strong cases. They don’t need to act like children, Ratcliffe remarked of Justice Department employees. They don’t need to look for judges, and they don’t need to divulge potentially false intelligence.
Ratcliffe said that the Justice Department’s opposition to a federal court appointing a special master to examine purportedly classified papers “tells you that the government didn’t discover what they were searching for.”
He said, “They’re trying to excuse what they’ve done, but there weren’t nuclear secrets” at Trump’s home. The American people are not being treated fairly by them. That will happen, in my opinion
The Epoch Times also pointed out that Ratcliffe did not provide concrete support for his assertions.
Aileen M. Cannon, a United States District Judge for the Southern District of Florida, mandated the appointment of an impartial third party to “examine the seized property, oversee assertions of privilege and make recommendations thereon, and consider requests for return of property” on Monday.
In accordance with the order, “the Court hereby allows the appointment of a special master to review the seized property for personal items and papers and possibly privileged material subject to claims of attorney-client and/or executive privilege.”
Furthermore, it continues, “the Court also temporarily enjoins the Government from reviewing and using the seized materials for investigative purposes pending completion of the special master’s review or further Court order, in natural conjunction with that appointment, and consistent with the value and sequence of special master procedures
