(BLP) – The Biden Department of Justice is opposing the release of an affidavit that was used to justify the FBI’s raid of President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-lago compound in Florida.
“If disclosed, the affidavit would serve as a roadmap to the government’s ongoing investigation, providing specific details about its direction and likely course, in a manner that is highly likely to compromise future investigative steps,” federal prosecutors stated in a court filing.
“As the Court is aware from its review of the affidavit, it contains, among other critically important and detailed investigative facts: highly sensitive information about witnesses, including witnesses interviewed by the government; specific investigative techniques; and information required by law to be kept under seal,” the filing noted.
The filing, which was signed off upon by Florida U.S. attorney Juan Antonio Gonzalez and Justice Department counterintelligence chief Jay Bratt, contains all kinds of excuses for why there should be no transparency.
“In addition, information about witnesses is particularly sensitive given the high-profile nature of this matter and the risk that the revelation of witness identities would impact their willingness to cooperate with the investigation,” the filing stated.
“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,” it continued.
The Department of Justice is willing to release other documents, as long as the public stays in the dark about the affidavit that would actually shed light on the reasoning behind the jackbooted raid on Trump’s home.
“The fact that this investigation implicates highly classified materials further underscores the need to protect the integrity of the investigation,” the Justice Department argued.
Big League Politics reported on the FBI confiscating Trump’s passports during last week’s “third world” siege of Mar-a-lago:
“President Donald Trump announced Monday on his Truth Social platform that the FBI stole three of his passports during their siege on his compound last week.
“Wow! In the raid by the FBI of Mar-a-Lago, they stold my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else. This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never before seen in this country. Third World!” Trump said in the message…
Apparently FBI agents are becoming sick of being part of a brazen criminal enterprise and are finally coming forward against this insanity.
“14 FBI agents have come to our office as whistleblowers, and they are good people. There are lots of good people in the FBI. It’s the top that’s the problem,” Rep. Jim Jordan said during an appearance on Fox News.
“But some of these good agents are coming to us telling us this is baloney what is going on – the political nature now of the Justice Department. God bless them for doing it, coming and talking to us about the sch
