Mar-a-Lago search warrant reveals Trump suspected of Espionage Act violation

Though it took several days for any information from the FBI search warrant related to the Mar-a-Lago raid to come out, what it revealed when a judge ordered it unsealed is nothing less than shocking.

According to The Hill, the former president appears to be suspected of violating the Espionage Act. Critics of the FBI and DOJ, on the other hand, claim that it’s nothing more than another phony attempt to hamstring the former president to keep him from running in 2024. 

Either way, the former president is in for a legal battle.

For his part, Trump has maintained that he has done nothing wrong and broken exactly zero laws, as any classified material, he says, was declassified by him.

The search warrant

The Hill noted: “The warrant also authorized the seizure of ‘any evidence of the knowing alteration, destruction, or concealment of any government and/or Presidential Records, or of any documents with classification markings.'”

It added: “Investigators listed 33 items that they had seized from the property, including the executive order of clemency for longtime Trump ally Roger Stone and information regarding the ‘President of France.’ The receipt also included entries such as ‘Miscellaneous Top Secret Documents,’ binders of photos and a handwritten note.”

Trump, in a Truth Social post, noted that all the material seized had been declassified.

“Number one, it was all declassified,” Trump wrote in the post. “Number two, they didn’t need to ‘seize’ anything. They could have had it anytime they wanted without playing politics and breaking into Mar-a-Lago. It was in secured storage, with an additional lock put on as per their request. They could have had it anytime they wanted—and that includes LONG ago.”

This changes everything

The situation set the political world on fire, with even staunch anti-Trump politicians like disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) demanding that Americans are made aware of exactly what might have led to such an unprecedented development in U.S. history.

“DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of January 6 investigations,” Cuomo said last week.

So far, the White House, which claimed it had no idea that the raid would take place, has remained radio silent on the issue.

Critics have demanded to see the sworn affidavit that led to the search warrant being issued, as that’s where the real details of the situation are contained.
