DOJ Releases Affidavit Behind Mar-A-Lago Raid

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

The Justice Department on Friday released a redacted affidavit justifying the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago home.  “The government is conducting a criminal investigation concerning the improper removal and storage of classified information in unauthorized spaces, as well as the unlawful concealment or removal of government records,” the 38-page affidavit started.  The redacted sections hide many key unanswered questions about the Aug. 8 raid, during which officials say 11 sets of classified documents were retrieved.
