The FBI raiding of Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate over classified documents has been a topic for months. Readers of this site knew immediately what this was.
The raid was a cover to undermine any chance of President Trump running against Joe Biden in 2024. It was a dirt hunting mission disguised as an FBI investigation.
Well, it seems that Judge Aileen Cannon in Florida suspects the same thing. She’s approved President Trump’s request to have a special master review the documents that were seized. The Daily Mail reports on this.
A federal judge in Florida has granted Donald Trump‘s request to have a special master review the documents seized during the raid on Mar-a-Lago – granting a key demand of the former president and tapping the breaks on the government’s investigation.
Judge Aileen Cannon approved Trump’s motion to appoint a special master ‘to review the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney client and/or executive privilege.’
Getting this judge’s ruling has prevented the government from fast-tracking its witch hunt against the President.
That grants Trump and his legal team a side benefit of stalling the fast-moving proceedings that have unfolded since the August 8 FBI search of Mar-a-Lago. Any potential appeal by the government could slow down proceedings even further.
BUT this isn’t simply President Trump’s legal team getting to pump the brakes on legal proceedings either.
It may not seem like much on the surface but this could have HUGE ramifications if Trump goes through with running in 2024. How? It could expose to the American public how the FBI has been the personal police force for the Left.
The judge states in her ruling regarding the materials seized that they are prime for being leaked and used as political weapons against the President.
She cited a ‘Detailed Property Inventory’ where the government said agents seized ‘approximately 11,000 documents and 1,800 other items from the office and storage room’ at Mar-a-Lago.
Her ruling also cited the risk of government leaks.
‘In addition to being deprived of potentially significant personal documents, which alone creates a real harm, Plaintiff faces an unquantifiable potential harm by way of improper disclosure of sensitive information to the public,’ she wrote.
The government has admitted that they overreached and took things that were beyond the scope of their warrant.
She said the government acknowledged seizing some personal effects ‘without evidentiary value,’ with ‘upwards of 500 pages of material potentially subject to attorney-client privilege.’
We’re talking about 500 pages! This is no small thing.
500 pages of material such as medical records, documents between Trump and his attorneys and tax information. Sound like something the Left would like to get their hands on?
The judge admits that some of what may have been seized could be damaging to President Trump’s career if it got into the wrong hands.
As a function of Plaintiff’s former position as President of the United States, the stigma associated with the subject seizure is in a league of its own. A future indictment, based to any degree on property that ought to be returned, would result in reputational harm of a decidedly different order of magnitude,’ she wrote.
What the judge has done is put into the record what the Left’s plan for this raid has been since the beginning. Her ruling to have a special master carefully review and document everything that was seized may have put a torpedo into what the Left was trying to do with this raid.
How? By creating a mutually shared destruction scenario for the Left.
This independent review of material gives President Trump a third party, court-approved inventory of every single item that the FBI has seized. As a result, if the Left tries to use any of the information found in those documents, the President now has clear, undeniable proof of the collaboration between the Left and the government.
I will say this again, President Trump is pure genius.
Of course there will be a whole dog and pony show. The legal proceedings will go on for months and spill into election season. The Left will do everything they can to use this to drag Trump’s name through the public square.
But, it will all be bluster and theatrics. President Trump has taken the teeth out of this sham investigation and ensured that if anything is leaked from this raid, it will lead directly to the doorstep of Democrats and the FBI.
Things may not be as bleak as many would lead us to believe. Even with all the chaos, victories like these are going to set the stage for a massive victory come 2024.
