Well, mighty interesting that they used this guy to sign off on the bullshit warranst.

The DoJ could have subpoenaed anything they wanted, but the show must go on.


The Florida federal magistrate judge who signed off on a search warrant authorizing the FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort donated to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign — months after he left the local US Attorney’s office to rep employees of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who had received immunity in the long-running sex-trafficking investigation of the financier.
Sources tell The Post that Judge Bruce Reinhart approved the warrant that enabled federal agents to converge on the palatial South Florida estate on Monday in what Trump called an “unannounced raid on my home.”
Reinhart was elevated to magistrate judge in March 2018 after 10 years in private practice. That November, the Miami Herald reported that he had represented several of Epstein’s employees — including, by Reinhart’s own admission to the outlet, Epstein’s pilots; his scheduler, Sarah Kellen; and Nadia Marcinkova, who Epstein once reportedly described as his “Yugoslavian sex slave.”
Kellen and Marcinkova were among Epstein’s lieutenants who were granted immunity as part of a controversial 2007 deal with federal prosecutors that allowed the pervert to plead guilty to state charges rather than federal crimes. Epstein wound up serving just 13 months in county jail and was granted work release.
According to the Herald, which cited court documents, Reinhart resigned from the South Florida US Attorney’s Office effective on New Year’s Day 2008 and went to work for Epstein’s cohorts the following day.
Epstein, who was found dead in August 2019 of an apparent suicide in the Manhattan Correctional Center while awaiting trial on federal sex-trafficking charges, had hired a stable of high-powered lawyers for his defense in the late 2000s, including former independent counsel Kenneth Starr.
Ten months after starting work for Epstein’s co-conspirators, according to Federal Election Commission records, Reinhart gave $1,000 directly to the Obama campaign and another $1,000 to its fundraising arm, the Obama Victory Fund. Though the records show the judge made mostly small-dollar donations to his law firm’s political action committee in subsequent years, Reinhart also donated $500 to Jeb Bush’s 2016 presidential campaign in November 2015.
Reinhart was later named in a civil lawsuit by two of Epstein’s victims that accused him of violating Justice Department policies by switching sides in the middle of the Epstein investigation, suggesting he had spilled inside information about the probe to build favor with the notorious defendant, the Herald reported in 2018.
In a 2011 affidavit, Reinhart denied he had done anything improper and insisted that since he was not involved in the federal investigation of Epstein, he was not privy to inside information about the case.
However, in a 2013 court filing, Reinhart’s former colleagues contradicted him, saying that he had “learned confidential, non-public information about the Epstein matter” while employed by the US Attorney’s Office. Reinhart noted to the Herald in response that a complaint filed against him by a lawyer for Epstein’s victims had been dismissed by the Justice Department.

Their fingers are in a panic.
Trying to convince people who are blind to everything going on is not an easy task. D.C. is corrupted and turning more and more fascist. And Progs in which you support, are for this. Good men and bad men. And bad men are in power.

A Law Firm is hired to defend scum of the Earth and I should be outraged…

Hmmm, can I fake my outrage?

Fact is the Judge and the FBI director are now public enemy number one and two on your list, so you will look for everything and anything on them but let me tell you if I am hired to defend someone ( well they are screwed ) I will do the job.

As for his donations, well he is loved Obama…

It's even worse than that.
Hillary hand-picked this asshole for her lawsuit against Trump:

"We previously reported how Judge Bruce Reinhart — the man who signed off on the search warrant to raid Mar-a-Lago — had previously worked for Jeffrey Epstein’s employees. He helped them secure immunity deals from the government after he left the U.S. Attorney’s office where they had been prosecuting Epstein.​
But it gets more concerning than that. Turns out the judge had recused himself from the Trump-Clinton lawsuit on June 22, citing a statute as to impartiality.
“The undersigned Magistrate Judge, to whom the above-styled cause has been assigned, hereby recuses himself and refers the case to the Clerk of Court for reassignment pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 455,” Reinhart wrote in his order of recusal in the Trump v. Clinton case. [….]​
The statute that the magistrate cited for his recusal states in part that a judge “shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned” and then describes the various circumstances that could trigger such concerns.​
They include “a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party, or personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts” or prior work as a lawyer for a party involved in the case.​
The judge doesn’t further specify his reason for recusal in the order.​
That naturally raises questions then about his signing of the search warrant for the raid on Trump’s home. What was his personal bias or knowledge? Or did he work for the Clinton team in any way? If he was recusing himself from the Trump-Clinton matter, is there a continuing issue that would be problematic in signing off on the Trump warrant?"​
According to court documents, the case has been reassigned to Bruce Reinhart an U.S. magistrate.​
ryon-mccabe-attorney-clinton-2-300x147.jpg
According to local Palm Beach news from 2018, at the time of his appointment:​
Reinhart, who replaced retiring Magistrate James Hopkins, will begin work at the federal courthouse in West Palm Beach, said Steven Larimore, federal court administrator.​
---------------------------​


Reinhart should have considered the politically sensitive nature of the warrant and kicked it up to a district judge.
Magistrates are different from appointed judges in key ways. While a federal judgeship is a lifetime appointment, magistrates serve eight-year terms that are subject to renewal. They handle pretrial motions and proceedings, but generally do not handle full-blown criminal trials.


The timing is highly suspect...because the week before this raid...he recused himself from the Trump vs Clinton lawsuit.
