Below is my column in the Hill on the raid on Mar-a-Lago. Questions continue to grow over the necessity for the raid as opposed to the use of a subpoena or other means. 1,251 more wordsThe Mar-a-Lago Raid: Criminal Prosecution or Political Indemnification? — JONATHAN TURLEY
The hard left is now claiming the raid was about nuclear documents though neither the FBI nor the DOJ have said that. They are claiming Trump may have retained nuclear codes. Well all these documents have already been inspected and many taken. Nuclear codes can be changed and would be if they were compromised. What seems more likely is that the FBI planted some nuclear documents into the files they took. What is also likely is they were planting listening devices in Mar a Lago as they did previously in Trump Tower and the White House when Trump was there. That would explain why they wanted CCTV cameras turned off and wanted all staff and lawyers to leave the premises.
