SET YOUR ALARM: Judge Orders DOJ to Release Redacted Mar-a-Lago Affidavit by Friday at Noon

Will we learn anything new?

According to a report from Fox News, U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart has ordered Merrick Garland and his DOJ to release the redacted version of the affidavit that resulted in the raid at Mar-a-Lago.

“I have reviewed the Government’s memorandum of law and proposed redactions to the search warrant Affidavit,” Reinhart wrote in his order to unseal Thursday afternoon. “I am fully advised in the entire record, including the contents of the Affidavit.” 

From Fox News:

Reinhart said that after reviewing the Justice Department’s redaction, the government “has met its burden of showing a compelling reason” and “good cause to seal portions of the Affidavit,” saying the disclosure would reveal “the identities of witnesses, law enforcement agents, and uncharged parties,” the investigation’s “strategy, direction, scope, sources, and methods, and “grand jury information” protected by federal rules. 

Reinhart said that after reviewing the affidavit with redactions, he has determined that the Justice Department “has met its burden of showing that its proposed redactions are narrowly tailored to serve the Government’s legitimate interest in the integrity of the ongoing investigation and are the least onerous alternative to sealing the entire Affidavit.”
