Judge orders US DOJ to redact Trump search warrant affidavit for public release

From Global News.

A federal judge on Thursday ordered the U.S. Justice Department to put forward proposed redactions as he committed to making public at least part of the affidavit supporting the search warrant for former president Donald Trump’s estate in Florida.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart gave prosecutors a week to submit a copy of the affidavit with proposed redactions for the information it wants to keep secret after the FBI seized classified and top secret information during a search at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last week.

The Justice Department has adamantly opposed making the affidavit public, arguing that doing so would compromise its ongoing investigation, would expose the identities of witnesses and could prevent others from coming forward and cooperating with the government.

Jackson Proskow has more on the judge’s decision, and the long list of legal woes facing the former president.
