Affidavit Released, Confusion Ensues

For weeks now, Donald Trump and his allies have been suggesting that a full and fair release 0f the affidavit used to procure the search warrant for the Mar-a-Lago raid would vindicate him, and out egg on the face of the government agencies involved.

Now, after a week of worry, some version of the affidavit has been released, but it provides more questions than answers.

Lawmakers are outraged at the heavy redactions in the much-anticipated affidavit used to justify this month’s raid on former President Trump’s residence.

Florida Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart unsealed a redacted affidavit Friday that the FBI used to obtain a search warrant for Mar-a-Lago on Aug. 8.

“So much for transparency,” Republican North Carolina Rep. Dan Bishop wrote on social media following the documents’ release.

Just how bad was it?

Approximately 20 pages of the 38-page affidavit were either significantly or fully redacted.

Rep. Andy Biggs put it rather succinctly:

This ludicrous censorship will only fuel the public’s distrust of the government, and possibly push more voters to the right in 2022.
