Despite the many breathless claims by the biased, woke media, the DOJ/FBI affidavit for the raid on Trump’s Florida home did NOT cite “national security” to justify the redactions of its filings.
The media claimed that Trump was a “danger” to national security and that the FBI raided Trump for “national secrets.” And when the affidavit was released with line after line redacted, many mediots assumed that the blacked out sections were meant to safeguard national security.
But the Department of Justice just blew that theory up by assuring the country that none of the redactions were to keep national security secrets.
Per Breitbart News:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) did not cite national security as one of the reasons for redacting information in the affidavit for the Mar-a-Lago raid, which was released on Friday.
In addition to releasing the redacted affidavit, Judge Bruce Reinhart also released the government’s legal memorandum explaining the reasons for the redactions in the affidavit.
The government’s “five categories of information that must remain under seal in order to protect the safety of multiple civilian witnesses” did not include national security:
The categories, described further below, are (1) information from a broad range of civilian witnesses who may be subject to “witness intimidation or retaliation,” D.E. 80 at 9; (2) information regarding investigative avenues and techniques that could provide a roadmap for potential ways to obstruct the investigation, id. at 9-10; (3) information whose disclosure is prohibited under Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure (“Rule 6(e)”), such as grand jury subpoenas, testimony, and related material, id. at 10; (4) information whose disclosure could risk the safety of law enforcement personnel, id. at 9; and (5) information _whose disclosure could harm “legitimate privacy interests” of third parties.
So, in other words, the media was wrong.
What a surprise, huh?
