If there’s one thing that Joe Biden is most fearful of, it’s a Trump 2024 run. That’s why he spends so much time demonizing “MAGA Republicans.”
But Donald Trump just made one move that Joe Biden never saw coming.
For many Americans, the raid on Mar-a-Lago was a step too far.
And poll after poll demonstrates that the Biden administration made a serious error in judgment.
A former President has never previously in American history been the target of an FBI raid.
He is probably also the final one, going by how the American people are reacting.
So far the raid has been a severe setback for Biden and the Democrats.
The biggest issue for Democrats is that the conflict has not yet been resolved.
In actuality, it has just just begun.
And the worse it gets for Democrats, the more it makes headlines.
It’s obvious that Democrats weren’t prepared for Donald Trump to respond.
The legal team for former president Donald Trump has now taken their legal dispute all the way up to the US Supreme Court.
The Justice Department’s review of the classified records collected during the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago was put on hold by the court, but Trump’s attorneys have asked Justice Clarence Thomas, who has jurisdiction over the 11th Circuit, to lift that order.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon first imposed an injunction prohibiting the DOJ from using the secret documents for investigation reasons.
The 11th Circuit overruled Cannon’s decision and barred Raymond Dearie, the Special Master appointed by the court, from studying such records.
Only the non-classified documents taken from Mar-a-Lago were included in Dearie’s examination by the panel.
Trump and his crew were only enraged by that ruling, so it is not a surprise that they went on the offensive and filed a scathing petition with the Supreme Court.
“The unprecedented circumstances presented by this case—an investigation of the Forty-Fifth President of the United States by the administration of his political rival and successor—compelled the District Court to acknowledge the significant need for enhanced vigilance and to order the appointment of a Special Master to ensure fairness, transparency, and maintenance of the public trust,” the filing states.
“That appointment order is simply not appealable on an interlocutory basis and was never before the Eleventh Circuit. Nonetheless, the Eleventh Circuit granted a stay of the Special Master Order, effectively compromising the integrity of the well-established policy against piecemeal appellate review and ignoring the District Court’s broad discretion without justification,” the filing goes on.
This “unwarranted stay should be vacated as it substantially impairs the ongoing, time-sensitive work of the Special Master,” Trump’s legal team continued.
“Moreover, any limit on the comprehensive and transparent review of materials seized in the extraordinary raid of a President’s home erodes public confidence in our system of justice,” the filing adds.
Certainly, Trump is right on that score.
Americans are aware that Joe Biden and the Democrats have reduced the Department of Justice and FBI to serving as their personal Party police.
Because of this, a lot of Americans now support eliminating the FBI and cutting funds to the Department of Justice.
They also understand that anyone may become a target if even a former US President can.
