We reported that Judge Aileen Cannon granted President Donald Trump’s request to appoint an executive to review material seized by the FBI from his home to separate the personal items and potentially confidential material. Mar-a-Lago seized Trump’s medical documents, correspondence relating to taxes, as well as accounting information.
The Court ordered that the FBI was prohibited from reviewing any material until the special master has been appointed and reviewed it. Although it is good that the Court stopped the FBI from reviewing likely privileged documents, the Court did not stop Avril Haines’ “classification review”. Although the judge may think Haines is objective, as a Biden appointee who is also John Brennan’s protege, it’s almost like letting the cat out of the chicken house. In my opinion, it might even negate the entire decision to have a special Master.
The FBI raid was extremely broad. It even went through Barron Trump, 16,’s bedroom according to Donald Trump and Melania Trump’s closet. According to the order, 11,000 documents were seized by the FBI and 1,800 additional items.
However, I wanted to point out that the order revealed how Joe Biden’s team lied about their involvement in the matter against Donald Trump.
We reported previously that Joe Biden claimed he did not know of the FBI’s action against Trump.
Biden doubles down after bombshell report alleging that the Biden administration set the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago into motion:

“I didn’t have any advance notice. None. Zero. Not one single bit,” Biden protested far too much, also flashing the symbol that leftists wrongly think is a white power sign.
According to Debra Steidel Wall, NARA Archivist, this was actually the case.
Wall wrote that the White House Counsel’s Office, affirming a request by the Department of Justice and supported by an FBI memorandum on letterhead, formally transmitted a request to NARA that it grants access to the 15 boxes for its inspection within seven days. There is also the possibility that the FBI might ask for specific documents after its review of these boxes.
“The Counsel to the President has informed me that, in light of the particular circumstances presented here, President Biden defers to my determination, in consultation with the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel, regarding whether or not I should uphold the former President’s purported ‘protective assertion of executive privilege,’” Wall wrote. “… I have therefore decided not to honor the former President’s ‘protective’ claim of privilege.”
The Judge’s order now puts a finer point on Joe Biden’s involvement in the case, referring to the records Trump had already given to NARA.

According to the order, NARA informed Trump that it would continue to “provide the FBI access to the records in question as requested by the incumbent president, beginning as early May 12, 2022.”
Contrary to Biden’s claims, according to the order, Biden requested that NARA turn over documents to him and that they be given to the FBI.
Although Biden may not have been aware of the raid at the time, he was aware of its existence because he requested that the documents be given to the FBI. Biden was directly involved in the FBI raid.
This is a complex issue to overcome and it screams banana republic when it targets his former and possible future opponent.
