Trump Won't Oppose Unseal Mar-a-Lago Warrant
The Justice Department is moving to unseal the warrant to search Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, after Trump allies pressed for an explanation for the FBI raid.
The motion passed by Justice Department lawyers says that "the public's clear and powerful interest in understanding what occurred under these circumstances weighs heavily in favor of unsealing."
The warrant could be unsealed as soon as this afternoon, if Trump's legal team does not object.
Trump's lawyers have the power to delay or block the release of the material by opposing the motion to release the search warrant.
A move which is available to them until 3 p.m. ET. But it's unlikely they'll do so, as Trump himself has said he is in favor of the unsealing of the warrant.
Trump had—and still has—the right to reveal the search warrant himself, but has so far refused to do so despite calls from across the political spectrum.
If Trump's legal team doesn't stand in the way of the search warrant being unsealed, Judge Bruce Reinhart, will oversee the unsealing process as early as this afternoon, after the 3 p.m. deadline.
