DOJ Submits Proposed Redactions for Mar-a-Lago Raid Affidavit
The DOJ had until noon today to submit their proposed redactions to the search warrant used in the Mar-a-Lago raid in order for the documents to be made public. Highlighting the effort of Main Justice to delay any sunlight, the DOJ waited until the last moment to submit their filing.
With the DOJ submission in hand, Florida Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart will now review the proposal and decide which, if any, parts of the affidavit will now be released to the public. Judge Reinhart was the judge who originally signed-off on the search warrant. It is likely he will go along with the redactions, although there is a slight possibility, he may propose an alternative.
Lawyers for media have requested the full unredacted release of the affidavit, and representative of President Trump have also requested a full unredacted release. Unfortunately, that scenario is extremely unlikely.
