A look into the FBI’s affidavit: The reasons for the FBI Search Warrant to raid Trump’s Mar-A-Lago

 

On the 9th August the home of former President Donald J. Trump. Mar-A-Lago was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI had done everything through procedure and protocol. That’s why the FBI had gotten Search Warrants and ability to enter his building/home legally. This was done, because the former President hadn’t complied with the authorities and hadn’t returned government owned documents. That’s why this went down and there are credible reasons for doing so.

The affidavit states clearly this: “After an initial review of the NARA Referral, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) opened a criminal investigation to, among other things, determine how the documents with classification markings and records were removed from the White House (or any other authorized location(s) for the storage of classified materials)and came to be stored at the PREMISES; determine whether the storage location(s) at the PREMISES were authorized locations for the storage of classified information; determine whether any additional classified documents or records may have been stored in an unauthorized location at the PREMISES or another unknown location, and whether they remain at any such location; and identify any person(s)who may have removed or retained classified information without authorization and/or in an unauthorized space”.

Here is the main issue and the unlawful activity of the former President. It is easy to read this and understand what Trump did. He did blatantly take documents, records and classified information, which he wasn’t allowed to store. Neither did he have secure facilities or the rights to have it. That has been stated in reports in the press already that Trump had “secret”, “top secret”, “classified” and even “TS/SCI”, which is not only highly classified, but only supposed to be kept in certain location and you need special clearances to even get access to it. Therefore, this is case appalling and how little “national security” matters for the “law and order” former President.

The affidavit further says: “The FBI’s investigation has established that documents bearing classification markings, which appear to contain National Defense Information (NDI),were among the materials contained in the FIFTEEN BOXES and were stored at the PREMISES in an unauthorized location”.

Here is talk of compromising documents… and should never ever leave the premises of secure locations. That’s what Trump took to Mar-A-Lago. This could contain vital military secrets and could be dangerous for the national security. He has taken this to his home as he left office.

In addition: “Further, there is probable cause to believe that additional documents that contain classified NDI or that are Presidential records subject to record retention requirements currently remain at the PREMISES. There is also probable cause to believe that evidence of obstruction will be found at the PREMISES”.

The ones that defends his rights to have these documents are now partly insane. Because the preposition of having classified NDI or even TS/SCI outside of safe or secure locations are insane. They should never really be kept outside that and only a selected few with clearances can see it. People who leaks or even tries to whistle-blow this sort of information become felons and get punished with the espionage act. As they violated the state and it’s security. The same can now be said by the former President.

Another interesting fact is this one: “Based upon this investigation, I believe that the STORAGE ROOM, FPOTUS’s residential suite, Pine Hall, the 45 Office, and other spaces within the PREMISES are not currently authorized locations for the storage of classified information or NDI. Similarly, based upon this investigation, I do not believe that any spaces within the PREMISES have been authorized for the storage of classified information at least since the end of FPOTUS’s Presidential Administration on January 20,2021”.

This just shows what sort lack of care or concern for these documents. The former President has violated several of codes and because of his reluctant acts to return then. The FBI has to get a search warrant and get it all. They had to investigate and prove all exhaustion of remedies to get it returned. This just shows what sort of contempt for the law the former President has and how he thinks his above it.

The affidavit doesn’t make the case any better for Donald J. Trump, because the redacted parts of the affidavit only shows there are more unknown acts or possible crimes investigated. The parts that is unleashed today on the public. Only shows what sort acts that has been done by him. There was intent and he stored illegal documents, which has vital national defense information (NDI). That’s compelling and spelling out what he did.

So, if the former President thinks this affidavit vindicate him in any way. No, it only shows the public what sort of man he is and how he violates the law without any consideration of the implications. Because, others would have been in the slammer or behind bars for this much sooner. Peace.
