The Biden Regime is growing increasingly desperate to conceal the true facts behind the FBI raid on Former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence.
Republican lawmakers, and a growing number of Americans, have demanded answers from Biden’s Department of Justice as to why the FBI raided the home of a Former President — and now we know (kinda.)
The DOJ affidavit seeking the search warrant for the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s private residence at Mar-a-Lago, Florida, was unsealed by a federal judge Friday afternoon.
The affidavit, signed by a special agent with the FBI, contends that after reviewing 15 boxes of material that Trump handed over voluntarily to the government, the DOJ determined that classified information had not been stored properly and that there might be more of it at Mar-a-Lago.
“The FBI’s investigation has established that documents bearing classification markings, which appear to contain National Defense Information (NDI), were among the materials contained in the FIFTEEN BOXES and were stored at the PREMISES in an unauthorized location,” the affidavit said.
“Further, there is probable cause to believe that additional documents that contain classified NDI or that are Presidential records subject to record retention requirements currently remain at the PREMISES.”
Mar a Lago affadavit released.
Massively redacted by Biden’s DOJ to hide the fact the had ZERO cause for this abuse of power against his 2024 political challenger and a former President who still has ALL his clearances.

One of the government’s concerns was that the material in the boxes was poorly organized:
[A] preliminary review of the FIFTEEN BOXES indicated that they contained “newspapers, magazines, printed news articles, photos, miscellaneous print-outs, notes, presidential correspondence, personal and post- presidential records, and ‘a lot of classified records.’ Of most significant concern was that highly classified records were unfoldered, intermixed with other records, and otherwise unproperly [sic] identified.”
The agent did not personally know that there was defense-related information in the documents with alleged classification marking, but said that “[b]ased on my training and experience, I know that documents classified at these levels typically contain NDI.”
Separately, the court also released the government’s legal memorandum explaining the reasons for the redactions in the affidavit.
The categories, described further below, are (1) information from a broad range of civilian witnesses who may be subject to “witness intimidation or retaliation,” D.E. 80 at 9; (2) information regarding investigative avenues and techniques that could provide a roadmap for potential ways to obstruct the investigation, id. at 9-10; (3) information whose disclosure is prohibited under Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure (“Rule 6(e)”), such as grand jury subpoenas, testimony, and related material, id. at 10; (4) information whose disclosure could risk the safety of law enforcement personnel, id. at 9; and (5) information _whose disclosure could harm “legitimate privacy interests” of third parties.
The burning question remains: Why won’t the DOJ release an unredacted affidavit showing in clear, plain language why the Biden Regime raided the home of a Former President?
