Judge unseals additional sections of Mar-a-Lago search warrant affidavit

Since the FBI and DOJ-led raid on former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate concerning his handling of classified documents, a number of media organizations have sought full access to the affidavit that was signed for the search warrant. 

According to The Epoch Times, the judge overseeing the case ruled that more of the affidavit's contents could be unsealed.

The ruling to unseal the contents came via U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart on Wednesday.

Initially, the search warrant affidavit was released in a heavily-redacted form in August 2022. Parts of it were revealed the following month, but since then, it has remained under seal.

Journalists from multiple media outlets have worked to have the document unsealed as much as possible to discover exactly what convinced a judge to sign off on such a high-profile warrant.

Contained in the documents was new information that provided additional details as to what federal prosecutors believed was happening with Trump's storage of various classified materials.

"Since the FIFTEEN BOXES were provided to NARA, additional documents bearing classification markings, which appear to contain NDI and were stored at the PREMISES in an unauthorized location, have been produced to the government in response to a grand jury subpoena directed to FPOTUS’s post-presidential office and seeking documents containing classification markings stored at the PREMISES and otherwise under FPOTUS’s control," the newly-unsealed portion of the document read.

It added: "It was FPOTUS’s practice to store accumulated documents in boxes, and that continues to be his practice."

Trump has long maintained that he's innocent of any wrongdoing in the case, insisting that as a president, he had the power to declassify documents in his possession.

The former president also continues to insist that President Joe Biden has utilized the Department of Justice as a political weapon against a political opponent.

Even facing two indictments, Trump continues to remain at the top of the polls for the Republican nomination, leaving his closest competitor, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), struggling to stay within reach.

Only time will tell what happens with the classified documents case, but Trump's legal team is undoubtedly working overtime to protect their client.
