Why Would Trump Hold Onto Anything From His Presidency That Would Give ANYONE Grounds to Invade His Private Space With a Search Warrant?

They asked for the documents pretty please. Trump wouldn't turn them over. So they had to raid his residence months later.

Turns out he still has some documents. Complete moron.

The US monitors communication in and out of Russian embassies world wide and have for more than 50 years. If you called the Russian embassy constantly, they would monitor you. It's SOP.
I am not talking about calls to Russian embassies.

Maybe I'm just being naive but why give people LEGAL grounds to come after you?

That's like leaving a job, especially if involuntarily and deciding to keep one of the cell phones that you've been using for both work and personal calls and then refusing or not wanting to turn it over when asked for it. I understand that having your own personal items mixed in with your work items presents a dilemma but you don't deal with it by lying about what you're holding and then not turning over everything that is asked for.

Unless I'm missing something, does Trump or anyone else believe he's entitled to keep classified, top secret documents at his home? Why would he not turn these items over? Just general principle?

Former President Trump is asking a federal court to appoint a special master to review the documents the FBI seized from Mar-a-Lago this month during a court-authorized search.​
In a motion filed in federal court in Florida, Trump also is seeking to prevent the government from further reviewing the documents that were taken until a special master is appointed, and he wants the government to provide more details on items that were taken during the search.​
The legal action is the first from Trump's attorneys since FBI agents executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago two weeks ago.​
"Law enforcement is a shield that protects Americans. It cannot be used as a weapon for political purposes," the filing says. "Therefore, we seek judicial assistance in the aftermath of an unprecedented and unnecessary raid on President Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago."​
Trump's attorneys argue that the search raises Fourth Amendment concerns and that the warrant used was overly broad. They also say the department took the unprecedented step of searching the former president's home despite what Trump's attorneys say was his voluntary assistance with investigators over several months.​
In a statement, Justice Department spokesman Anthony Coley reiterated that the search warrant at Mar-a-Lago was "authorized by a federal court upon the required finding of probable cause."​
The department is aware of Trump's motion, he said, and will file its response in court.​
Last Friday, the judge in the case, U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, gave the Justice Department one week to provide a redacted copy of the affidavit used to justify the unprecedented search of Trump's residence. Multiple media organizations had asked the judge to unseal all documents related to the search, notably the affidavit laying out the reasoning and research. At a hearing last Thursday, the organizations said they do not want to release any information that would have a chilling effect on current or future witnesses, endanger people involved in the probe or compromise the investigation.​

The Justice Department argued at the hearing that redacting the affidavit would leave no information of substance to release and also noted that the search itself and release of the warrant last week had created a volatile situation where FBI agents have already received death threats.​
The Justice Department must give Reinhart their proposed redacted version by Thursday at noon. The judge has not said what, if anything, he will ultimately order made public.​


While the Justice Department asked the court to unseal the warrant, citing intense public interest, it has argued strongly against releasing the affidavit, saying doing so could compromise its investigation, other probes, the possibility of future witness cooperation and the safety of agents and individuals named in the affidavit.​
The warrant shows that FBI agents retrieved documents labeled classified, secret, top secret and confidential as well potential presidential records. It also reveals that the Justice Department is investigating the potential violation of three federal statutes, including the Espionage Act and obstruction of justice.​
The genesis of the investigation comes from an unlikely source: the National Archives. This winter the agency, in charge of cataloguing and storing important government documents, retrieved 15 boxes of key presidential records that it said Trump was improperly and possibly illegally keeping at home.​
The answer to your question is simple; he's a full blown idiot who has zero respect for the law.

He is a whiny vindictive asshole.

this is exactly they type of thing that I would expect. It is not like he hid why he did it. he demands the documents are his. That he is wrong is not relevant to him.


I have no idea why any of this is confusing to anyone. Trump is many, many things. Subtle is simply not one of them.

You gottem’ now!

On what grounds? The lie about the insurrection has failed, and the over-the-top raid yielded nothing.

He was a good president, and until the communists released their virus, we were doing well: no wars, strong economy.

Just because MAGAs refuse to accept that their fat orange god is a crooked snake oil salesman doesn't mean he's not.

Just because deranged, deluded leftists refuse to accept that President Trump was a good president doesn’t mean he wasn’t. It just shows that they are ignorant.

You could be absolutely right. I'll double check on that as soon as I finish going through this long list of conspiracy theories and lies he told.

Don’t forget the Russia conspiracy hoax your side invented, along with all of Biden’s lies.

Ok, but that means I will have to actually read that report instead of going with the inaccurate synopsis that Barr gave.

It's doubtful he did. Democrat scum are just lying like always.
