Trump Lawyers Request Judge Appoint Independent Auditor On Documents

Trump seeks special master to review Mar-a-Lago documents

Lawyers for former President Donald Trump asked a federal judge Monday to halt the FBI’s review of documents recovered from his Florida estate earlier this month until a neutral special master can be appointed to inspect the records.

The request was included in a federal lawsuit, the first filing by Trump’s legal team in the two weeks since the search, that takes broad aim at the FBI investigation into the discovery of classified records at Mar-a-Lago and that foreshadows arguments his lawyers are expected to make as the probe proceeds.

The lawsuit casts the Aug. 8 search, in which the FBI said it recovered 11 sets of classified documents from Mar-a-Lago, as a “shockingly aggressive move.” It also attacks the warrant as overly broad, contends that Trump is entitled to a more detailed description of the records seized from the home and argues that the FBI and Justice Department has long treated him “unfairly.”

“Law enforcement is a shield that protects America. It cannot be used as a weapon for political purposes,” the lawyers wrote Monday. “Therefore, we seek judicial assistance in the aftermath of an unprecedented and unnecessary raid” at Mar-a-Lago.

There was no need for this raid. There was no need for 30+ agents coming at dawn all armed up and wearing ballistic protection. There was no need for the overly broad search. No need to search Melania’s closet. The idea was to put Trump on the defensive, to make him look bad. But, come on, most either love him or hate him. But, what of the middle ground who liked his policies but couldn’t stand the constant yapping and tweeting?

Trump turns his legal battle after FBI search into political rallying cry

Donald Trump’s new lawsuit over the FBI search of his Florida resort codifies his political fury into a legal strategy and implicitly spells out how the ex-President intends to exploit the drama as a springboard for his likely 2024 White House bid. (snip)

While the motion is a formal legal document, it serves as a political roadmap that explains how Trump would style himself as a presidential candidate persecuted, as he sees it, for partisan reasons by the Biden administration. It’s also offers 27 pages of talking points for Trump’s GOP allies and serves to take the focus away from the core questions in the case: did he illegally and recklessly keep classified information and government secrets to which he was not entitled and which could put national security as risk? And did Trump or those around him try to obstruct the investigators from continuing their pursuit?

CNN tries, of course, to beat on Trump, but, what’s happening here is that it entices Trump to run for president. If the media and the government moonbats with Trump Derangement Syndrome had just moved on, Trump may have moved on. Not now. And it gives Americans a good view of how Government can simply do whatever they want whenever they want. If they can do this to Trump, they can do this to you. That will resonate will lots of middle ground voters.

    Just trump being trumpy. Another look over there scheme. Whether a “special master” or an independent review board won’t make a difference, but it will slow things down. More chaos.

    Trump is not playing to the courts but to “his people”.

    For whatever reason, trump illegally took classified documents home with him. Maybe it was to rile up his base as a persecuted man. Perhaps to use as leverage against the US. Maybe he’s an idiot.

    They gov’t asked nice for their property and forrest trump refused.

    It also distracts from the fact that trump committed treason.

      “It also distracts from the fact that trump committed treason.”

      It’s a “fact” is it? What court has determined that little leftist tidbit?

      Your seething hate and communist blinds you to the truth. But you know that by now and just choose to ignore it.

      We we all do love how you continue to call everyone names. Now Trump Committed treason. It’s a FACT, don’t ya know?

    • david7134 says:

      You have no idea as to what records are in or were in Trumps possession. You have no evidence of treason. Your view is distorted to the point of psychosis. I really think you are so hung up on Trump and commenting that your grievously harmed your listed corporation. To put it in terms you might understand, you are fucking nuts

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    tRump sued the US government, submitting to tRump appointee, District Judge Aileen Cannon, who responded:

    “on or before August 26, 2022, Plaintiff shall file a supplement to the Motion further elaborating on the following: (1) the asserted basis for the exercise of this Court’s jurisdiction, whether legal, equitable/anomalous, or both; (2) the framework applicable to the exercise of such jurisdiction; (3) the precise relief sought, including any request for injunctive relief pending resolution of the Motion; (4) the effect, if any, of the proceeding before Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart; and (5) the status of Plaintiff’s efforts to perfect service on Defendant.”

    She’s asking… Why are you here? What do you want? Why not the original judge? Why aren’t you following the rules?

    A lawyer said this is how a judge asks, “Excuse me, but wtf are you doing?”

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Reports are that Don Jon tRump oversaw what to include in the initial 15 box bolus of classified documents returned to the Archives. It’s claimed he personally reviewed the documents and decided what to keep and what to send back to the Archives.

    But doesn’t make sense. I don’t believe the reports since it suggests tRump was reading something.

    tRump’s lawyers need to file some more papers!

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Rimjob: Reports are that Don Jon tRump oversaw what to include in the initial 15 box bolus of classified documents returned to the Archives.

      So you actually know this? How?
      Reports from who?
      Leaked reports from the DOJ, FBI?

      Bwaha! Such a tool.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Try to keep up, Rimjob.

      The FBI’s disinformation campaign continues.

      The New York Times shrieked, “Trump Had More Than 300 Classified Documents at Mar-a-Lago.”

      Politico trilled, “Documents recovered at Mar-a-Lago were among government’s most classified, letter shows.”

      NBC bellowed, “Docs received from Mar-a-Lago in January were marked with most sensitive classification, Archives says.”

      None of that is true because as president, Trump declassified everything at Mar-a-Lago. The deep state through this National Archive bureaucracy is trumping up another false scandal.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

    It amuses me when Trump’s lawyers try every legal means to protect their client only to be chided and ridiculed by Dowd but when some criminal leftist does the same he’s all for it. It’s also amusing how Dowd, as the commie he is, automatically starts spouting off how guilty Trump is of every accusation and how Dowd somehow knows so many facts not public. I guess his “sources” at Pravda keeps him up to date.

    Dowd is a partisan, a liar and a hypocrite and we all know that. But when he actively endorses a two tiered legal system to harm anyone and everyone he disagrees with from parents trying to protect their kids to an out-of-office ex president who poses no threat to him except that which is bubbling in his heated brain hae passes from just a foolish communist instigator into a down right enemy of the Republic.

    Now he’s decided (like a few other commie leftists imbedded in our government or media) that Trump is as he stated a “traitor”. So we must suppose Dowd is promoting a traitors punishment for an ex president: execution. And Dowd’s spent the last 7 years calling Trump and us the “dictators”. The projection is awesome.

    Show us Hunters lap top. Indict the BLM insurrectionists who declared “autonomous zones” . Prosecute the FBI liars from the Muller investigation. Prosecute Nazi Pelozi for insider trading. Indict everyone in Ghislaine Maxwells “black book” for pedophilia and rape. Then talk to us about Trump taking presidential documents he’s allowed to take like every other president has. Then bitch all you want.

    Trump declassified everything at Mar-a-Lago

    LOL. Former presidents can’t declassify anything. And there is zero evidence that he declassified everything before he was “civilianized” by over 81 million American voters. His claim that he was/is still president is unlikely to hold up in court.

    “Documents must be declassified page by page; in fact, if TS/SCI [Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information] line by line. The document then is marked declassified (often sanitized) by the authorizing agent along with the date. Consequently, former President Trump’s claim is to me implausible.”

    Trump’s former national security adviser, John R. Bolton, told the New York Times he never heard of Trump’s alleged standing order and that it is “almost certainly a lie.”

    “I was never briefed on any such order, procedure, policy when I came in,” Bolton told the Times, nor was he aware of such a policy when he worked at the White House or after.

    “If he [Trump] were to say something like that, you would have to memorialize that, so that people would know it existed,” Bolton said.

    Glenn Gerstell, former general counsel for the National Security Agency from 2015 to 2020 — straddling the Obama and Trump administrations — told us in a phone interview that if there was a standing order, he, too, “was not aware of that.”

    “If there was a standing order it doesn’t appear to have been memorialized,” Gerstell said.

    In any event, the current legal complaints against Don Jon are not related to classification. His claim regarding a standing order for declassification, besides being a lie, is just another tRumpian red herring. It’s what he and his boyz do. Don Jon has a history of telling lies.

    Did tRump trade of even sell important information to North Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, China…? Why did he steal all the documents in the first place?

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Rimjob proves himself to be totally uninformed everytime he refers to quotes from Raw Story.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        CumBreath can’t refute a thing, so he starts making stuff up. BTW, try mouthwash.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          So Rimjob just confirmed he used the quotes from Raw Story without attribution.

          Thanks, genius.

          Such a tool, LOLGFY!

      I hate to curse but you’re so full of shit I can smell you here. Trump did no such thing. How do I know? If he had he would have immediately been put under “investigation” not only by the commies in Congress but by 77 agencies of the leftist controlled bureaucracy and “law enforcement” agencies. And you know it too.

      They never missed a chance to harass and “investigate” Trump for ANYTHING! They impeached him TWICE. Once when he WASN’T EVEN IN OFFICE that’s how much they hate him *(and us). You would have him and his whole family executed if you could so don’t tell me he did something illegal and you let it pass. You’re not that good a liar.

    Mar-a-Lago Raid: Trump Seeks Special Master As Leaked Docs Show Biden Helping FBI Just Prior To Raid
    Team Biden may not have known of the “raid” in advance, but their fingerprints are all over this. John Solomon: “the Biden White House worked directly with the Justice Department and National Archives to instigate the criminal probe into alleged mishandling of documents, allowing the FBI to review evidence retrieved from Mar-a-Lago this spring and eliminating the 45th president’s claims to executive privilege.

    Bwaha! Lolgf
