Via TTN:

The Joe Biden Department of Justice noted in a court filing they oppose the release of an affidavit related to the FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate.

Breaking 911 reports:

The Department argued the release of the affidavit would “cause significant and irreparable damage to this ongoing criminal investigation.”

“Disclosure of the government’s affidavit at this stage would also likely chill future cooperation by witnesses whose assistance may be sought as this investigation progresses, as well as in other high-profile investigations,” the DOJ said in the filing, according to CNN. “The fact that this investigation implicates highly classified materials further underscores the need to protect the integrity of the investigation and exacerbates the potential harm if information is disclosed to the public prematurely or improperly.”

“The redactions necessary to mitigate harms to the integrity of the investigation would be so extensive as to render the remaining unsealed text devoid of meaningful content, and the release of such a redacted version would not serve any public interest,” the DOJ added.

Republican leaders had called for the release of the affidavit following the unprecedented search at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.

DOJ: “We Demorats of the DOJ say that Trump is guilty and we don’t have to show anybody why we think so. So trust us”.

Is the America’s Department of Justice or more like the communist’s K.G.B. ?

I call bullsh!t on the DOJ.
1 -Since there is no itemized list of what was in the boxes, how do we know they are not planting evidence?
2- If the papers were SO sensitive and important to our nation’s security, why were they not taken in June when the FBI and archivists looked in the boxes and asked the Secret Service to put another lock on the door?
3- Why did the FBI not take the sensitive material in June?
3- Since Trump and his home are guarded by secret service agents, why does the DOJ think the so-called “secret, secret “ documents not secure?
4-Why did the FBI get a warrant on Friday but not execute the raid until Monday if these documents were so secret?
5-Why did the magistrate recuse himself in the case between Trump and Hillary 6 weeks before but not recuse himself in signing this Affidavit?
6- Why did the DOJ shop a magistrate that posted anti-Trump rhetoric on Facebook, when an Affidavit must be secured and signed by disinterested parties per the US Constitution?

YOU hit the nail squarely on the head, so what could the so-called witnesses actually witness when the so-called “Evidence” that the “Witch Hunters” had already seen was “Locked up” securely as per their instructions that were complied with???

Welcome to the USA dictatorship. Be sure to have all your papers with you at all times. Get knee pads to protect your knees while kissing boot tops.

Why did it take 20 FBI agents over 3 hours to pick up 15 boxes? Something is very rotten in the FBI. Their extreme over-reach only solidifies the conclusion that they are still trying justify their treasonous activities against President Trump.

Totally disgusting. Nobody likes storytelling, and it starts with “the big guy” and his minions. No matter how these things appear in light of what has happened in countries under the control of dictators, it just never seems to matter to this administration. They obviously believe that the citizenry is only here to benefit their selfish and flawed ideology.

I want to know one thing…WHERE is the Democratic outrage against this raid? I have not seen one Democrat publicly condemn this raid. Would they not rail against such a raid on Clinton, or Obama? THAT, my friends, is the SCARIEST thing about this whole injustice. NOT ONE ELECTED DEMOCRAT has called out the DOJ for this travesty…SHAME ON ALL OF THEM!!!

What witnesses are they talking about that could not possibly offer anything except “hearsay” since the “So-Called” investigators told President Trump to “Lock up” the “boxes” which he did so what did the “So-Called witnesses” actually “WITNESS?”
Something Smells Fishy here and We the People want the TRUTH!

These shady operatives do everything in the dark, just like the old Soviet KGB. Has the FBI taken lessons from Vladimir Putin or from the East German Stasi?

Why is anyone surprised by the ongoing destruction of our Constitutional Republic? With Millions of immigrants coming into the Country without speaking the language or knowing the history what did you think would happen? As an immigrant (legal) myself, I took the Citizenship test and knew the history better than most born here and educated in the public schools. No doubt, this is all by design from the Left as I see it!
