    Garland just stated that they did. Word for word he said it. The warrant and the inventory.

    So lets get this straight. Once it was made public that the Albany Times Union and conservative group Judicial Watch filed a motion to unseal the warrant, now its the DOJ who filed to unseal their own warrant, but the DOJ has to file reasons why they shouldn't be unsealed by Monday?

    These flip flops get better and better.

    Its the DOJs warrant. They could unseal it today. What is actually happening is these dumbasscrats found out how bad this has backfired on them and are scrambling around trying to flip the script.

    The DOJ filed to unseal there own warrant and now have to file by Monday as to why it shouldn't be unsealed?

    Where did our bird-brained amigo go?

    It looks like Merrick Garland called the RW bluff. They're going to look silly.

    I'm looking for info on why the DOJ would have to file a motion with the court to unseal the warrant. Judicial Watch already filed a motion with the court to do so. The DOJ was ordered to file an argument (I assume) as to why it shouldn't be unsealed by Monday. Something isn't adding up.

    Lol.. Democrats waited until near midterm to conduct the raid. Had Democrats are up in the polls, none of this would occur. Biden's desperation is taking hold.

    You really have a hard time with simple things.

    the DOJ is calling the RW bluff. He's also asking for the Court to unseal the documents. You should probably fast before your next helping of crow.

    Paste up what Garland said "word for word". Read carefully first.

    I'll go ahead and assume that the Attorney General knows more about this than you do. It stands to reason that he can't act unilaterally in this regard.

    Garland should have just stayed in Biden's basement. Damn! The one good thing I can celebrate over is that this clown didn't get a seat at the SC.

    I'll give you an A for trying to dazzle with bullshit... We want to see the affidavit, the why, the basis for the search. This could have been released today by Biden's butt licking AG.

    CNN analyst explains what we could see in unsealed documents related to the Trump Mar-a-Lago search

    Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Thursday that the Department of Justice filed a motion to unseal a search warrant and property receipt relating to the search of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago property.

    CNN's legal analyst Elie Honig described the announcement as a "remarkable and unusual move" because "we essentially saw Merrick Garland call Donald Trump's bluff."

    In the wake of this search warrant, Trump and his lawyers have two documents, Honig explained on CNN following Garland's remarks. "One is the search warrant itself with whatever attachments. And the other is this inventory or this receipt."

    These documents have important information about the search. Usually, the Justice Department's policy is to only speak about things that are on the record with the court. But with this move, Garland is hoping to put these documents in front of Americans, Honig said.

    The warrant typically will list logistical information: place to be searched, a general description of items to be searched for, the name of the judge, a deadline by which the DOJ has to execute the search.

    But it also sometimes has an attachment, which typically will list the laws that the DOJ has probable cause to believe were violated.

    The second document is the inventory or the receipt.

    "It's a listing. The FBI says, 'here are the items that were removed from Mar-a-Lago.' Again, degrees of specificity and generality tend to vary. I do not expect that to have a piece of paper by piece of paper breakdown if they took thousands of pages," Honig explains. "I think what we're going to see is listings like X number of boxes. If they took any electronic documents, if they took any laptops, cell phones, that kind of thing."
    However, Honig notes that we will not see the affidavit, which is the most detailed document, that can be 20 to 100 pages where prosecutors lay out details that give them probable cause to believe laws were violated.

    That document will remain confidential, and typically, that is released if and when there is a charge, Honig explains.

    "If somebody gets searched and then indicted, then they will be given a copy of that affidavit ... so that that person can then challenge it in court," he said.

    Justice Department files in court to unseal Mar-a-Lago search warrant

    From CNN's Zachary Cohen

    The Justice Department has officially moved to unseal the search warrant executed by the FBI this week at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, according to newly filed court documents.

    “On August 8, 2022, the Department of Justice executed a search warrant, issued by this Court upon the requisite finding of probable cause… at the premises located at 1100 S. Ocean Blvd., Palm Beach, Florida 33480, a property of former President Donald J. Trump,” the motion reads.
    “At the time the warrant was initially executed, the Department provided notice directly to former President Trump’s counsel. The Department did not make any public statements about the search, and the search apparently attracted little or no public attention as it was taking place. Later that same day, former President Trump issued a public statement acknowledging the execution of the warrant. In the days since, the search warrant and related materials have been the subject of significant interest and attention from news media organizations and other entities,” the Justice Department writes.

    The DOJ then argues for unsealing the search warrant, citing “the intense public interest presented by a search of a residence of a former President.”

    The filing confirms that the search warrant was “signed and approved by the Court on August 5." On Thursday, the DOJ filed "the redacted Property Receipt listing items seized pursuant to the search," according to its unsealing motion.

    "Former President Trump, through counsel, was provided copies of each of these documents on August 8, 2022, as part of the execution of the search,” the filing adds. ​

    I will give McConnell props for doing something right in retrospect. Maybe he had a bad feeling about the empty suit. Well, after all, it took one to appoint another, right?

    IOW, you know that Garland's statement does not support your previous post.

    That proves that a copy of the warrant and affidavit were not given to Trump's lawyers.

    This is excellent. Trump 's big mouth seems t have backfired. He decided to go so public with his claims, accusations and rile his groupies.

    The AG played this very astutely and cleverly......... putting the responsibility back on the person who made it so public.

    Hard to believe that the cult want to assassinate him.

    They all belong in another country..........as the have no appreciation for what they have. But when fanaticism takes a hold of collective minds.......... there is a problem.

    The FBI has more integrity than anyone in Trump circle.

    So will the documents be unsealed??......... the T soap Opera continues.

    You going to also assume the DOJ made a motion to unseal their own warrant so that on Monday they have to file reason why it shouldn't be unsealed?
    You sound like the perfect Democrat Manchurian candidate

    Because once the court seals it, to unseal it you have to ask permission.
    They were ordered to file an argument in opposition by monday if they oppose. If you're saying they've filed a motion to unseal, then they don't oppose.
