As Judicial Watch seeks documents from a controversial criminal investigation that “reeks of corruption and dishonesty,” the Biden Department of Justice is opposing the government watchdog’s request.
The DOJ doesn’t want a federal court to unseal the affidavit used to justify the raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home. In their filing, Justice Department officials claim that releasing the affidavit would “cause significant and irreparable damage” to its ongoing criminal investigation.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said it appears the Biden Justice Department is telling the court what to do. He said Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart should make his own assessment on the “compelling public interest in transparency about this abusive raid.”
