‘Release the documents now!’: Trump says he supports making raid documents public

The Justice Department no longer has to question whether former President Donald Trump wants documents pertaining to the FBI raid on his Mar-A-Lago residence made public.

“Release the documents now!” Trump wrote on Truth Social just hours after a judge ordered the Biden DOJ to determine Trump’s wishes on the subject.

Trump called the raid “unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary” and approved of the “immediate release” of the warrant in a series of posts on the platform.

“Not only will I not oppose the release of documents related to the unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary raid and break-in of my home in Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago, I am going a step further by ENCOURAGING the immediate release of those documents,” Trump wrote, “even though they have been drawn up by radical left Democrats and possible future political opponents, who have a strong and powerful vested interest in attacking me, much as they have done for the last 6 years.”

“Breaking all records”

Trump theorized that the raid could have been part of a strategy to keep him from running for re-election in 2024.

“My poll numbers are the strongest they have ever been, fundraising by the Republican Party is breaking all records, and midterm elections are fast approaching. This unprecedented political weaponization of law enforcement is inappropriate and highly unethical,” he said. “The world is watching as our Country is being brought to a new low, not only on our border, crime, economy, energy, national security, and so much more, but also with respect to our sacred elections!”

The DOJ filed a motion to unseal the warrant and property receipt for the raid because Trump announced it publicly. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart then ordered the agency to find out whether Trump supported such a move before granting the motion.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said Thursday that he “personally approved” the warrant for the raid, which was said to be over as yet unspecified documents allegedly taken from the White House.


Unsealing the warrant and receipt could shed light on whether any classified documents were seized from Mar-A-Lago and whether Trump did anything wrong that other former presidents (whose homes were not raided) didn’t also do.

Trump’s legal team reportedly returned 15 boxes of documents to the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, and some of those documents included classified information.

“My attorneys and representatives were cooperating fully, and very good relationships had been established. The government could have had whatever they wanted, if we had it,” Trump said.

“They got way ahead of themselves. Crazy!” Trump posted.
