The Department of Justice is denying requests from numerous media outlets to release the documents which led to the search warrant on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
The department slyly noted it does not object to the unsealing of “other” materials filed in connection with the search warrant, “whose unsealing would not jeopardize the integrity of this national security investigation.”
The statement unequivocally alludes to a national security investigation. It was in the new court filing Monday which states “there remain compelling reasons, including to protect the integrity of an ongoing law enforcement investigation that implicates national security, that support keeping the affidavit sealed.”
It was in a footnote that the department wrote they “carefully considered” whether or not to release the affidavit with redactions, but the redactions needed to “mitigate harms to the integrity of the investigation would be so extensive as to render the remaining unsealed text devoid of meaningful content, and the release of such a redacted version would not serve any public interest.”
In the event that a judge orders the partial unsealing, the department stated “the government respectfully requests an opportunity to provide the Court with proposed redactions.”
The filing gives some details from the affidavit which was reviewed by Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, writing “it contains, among other critically important and detailed investigative facts: highly sensitive information about witnesses, including witnesses interviewed by the government; specific investigative techniques; and information required by law to be kept under seal” under grand jury rules.
“In addition, information about witnesses is particularly sensitive given the high-profile nature of this matter and the risk that the revelation of witness identities would impact their willingness to cooperate with the investigation.”
