Judicial Watch has announced that it filed two Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the Department of Justice (DOJ) for FBI and DOJ records of the Mar-a-Lago raid search warrant application and approval. The lawsuits also seek communications about the warrant among the FBI, the Executive Office of the President, and the Secret Service.
The lawsuits were filed in the US District Court for the District of Columbia after the DOJ failed to lawfully respond to August 2022 FOIA requests.
The first complaint asks for all records documenting the application, authorization, and communications related to the execution of the search warrant at the residence of President Trump on August 8, 2022 (Judicial Watch Inc. v. U.S. Department of Justice) (No. 1:22-cv-02884)).
Additionally, Judicial Watch is suing for all records of meetings or phone calls between FBI Director Christopher Wray, Deputy Director Paul Abbate, and other officials pertaining to the search warrant.
The American people have a right to know the entire story about the Biden administration’s abusive raid on President Trump’s home. The raid on President Trump’s home was an outrageous, reckless and unprecedented abuse of power – and the unlawful Biden agency secrecy about the raid only adds to the scandal.”Tom Fitton, President, Judicial Watch
Judicial Watch is in the forefront in the court battle for transparency regarding what it considers the abusive and politically-motivated Biden administration raid on Trump’s home.
In August, Judicial Watch forced the release of the raid affidavit.
Judicial Watch also just sued the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) for records about its controversial targeting of former President Trump over this records dispute.
