Justice Department: Trump attorneys won’t oppose release of Mar-a-Lago search warrant
A federal judge will soon decide whether to grant the Justice Department’s request to unseal the warrant that authorized the FBI to search former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate.
Watch a special ABC News report via the video player below.
ABC News obtained what appears to be the search warrant executed on the Mar-a-Lago property.
The warrant has not yet been posted on the docket and ABC News is not yet releasing the warrant and property receipt.
The filing would indicate that the Justice Department, in its search of the Mar-a-Lago estate, is investigating a potential violation of at least three separate criminal statutes, including one under the Espionage Act.
Attorney General Merrick Garland said there was “substantial public interest in this matter” and Trump supported the “immediate” release of the warrant.
Garland’s request came after the Justice Department asked a court to unseal the warrant, citing “a substantial public interest in the matter.”
Trump has received at least some of the documents the government is seeking to unseal, but he and his attorneys have so far refused to release them.
