Department The U.S. Justice Department has urged the court to release documents that allowed the FBI to conduct searches of former US President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Reuters reports.
Attorney General Merrick Garland commented for the first time on the searches of the ex-president and indicated that he personally approved the decision to conduct investigative actions.
According to Garland, the Justice Department is asking for the release of the warrant “due to the fact that the former president has publicly confirmed the fact of searches, in the light of the surrounding circumstances and significant public interest in this matter.
Reuters notes that this is an unusual decision by the Ministry of Justice, since law enforcement agencies, as a rule, do not comment on ongoing investigations. It came after Trump called the investigation an “act of political retaliation” by his successor, current head of state Joe Biden.
Searches in Mar-a-Lago took place on Monday, August 8. According to Politico and CNN sources, they are related to the way Trump handled White House documents. In February, the US National Archives and Records Administration suggested that when he left the White House, he took 15 boxes of documents, including secret ones, to his estate, about which the agency notified the Department of Justice. The documents were later returned.
Trump says searches are 'continuation' investigations into his ties to Russia and impeachment hearings that were going on in Congress when he was president. The former head of state refused to testify, citing the Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution, which gives citizens the right not to testify against themselves. He is also convinced that Biden knew in advance about the planned investigative actions. The White House insists that the FBI did not warn the president about them.
