While the “Justice” Department tries to get away with redacting essentially the entire affidavit used to get the warrant to raid Mar-a-Lago , Judicial Watch is doing an end run to glean as much information as possible from the National Archives’ communications.
As you know, JW had already filed suit against the DOJ to get them to unseal the affidavit. On Wednesday, they also filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the National Archives and Records Administration, demanding “all communications and materials related to its referral to the Justice Department for former President Trump’s presidential records.”
They’re requesting “all related records of communication between any official or employee of NARA, and any official or employee of the Department of Justice, and any other branch, department, agency or office of the federal government.”
I assume that would include the Biden White House. But don’t hold your breath. Obama Paved the Way to Mar-a-Lago
The White House has granted a DOJ request to permit them to have the FBI and intelligence community examine hundreds of classified documents that Trump turned over to NARA this spring. No doubt they could hardly contain their glee as they signed off on this.
When asked on Wednesday how much advance notice he’d had of the raid on Mar-A-Lago, Biden replied, “ I didn’t have any advance notice. None. Zero. Not one single bit. ” And you know that’s every bit as true as his repeated claim that he never talked business with son Hunter.

John Solomon at Just the News has pieced together how a 2009 executive order by President Obama to strip previous Presidents of executive privilege paved the way for the Mar-a-Lago raid. It’s quite […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
