DOJ Opposes Release of Affidavit in Trump Search
Updated on

The Justice Department said Monday it opposes the release of an FBI affidavit justifying a search warrant used to remove documents from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida last week. 

While DOJ had asked the court to release the search warrant itself last week, the department said in a filing that the affidavit “presents a very different set of considerations.”
