Biden Administration Attorney General Merrick Garland has just now officially spoken out for the very first time since news broke on Monday that law enforcement agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided ex-President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago compound in connection to a search warrant issued against the estate that Garland confirmed was personally signed off on by him.
And suffice it to say, Garland just brutally confirmed the former guy’s worst nightmare.
While Trump and his insiders and allies have certainly made a meal out of attacking both the FBI and the Justice Department in the aftermath of the Mar-a-Lago search and raid, the former president and his inner circle have been absolutely adamant against actually releasing the details of the search warrant that could help to clear his name, if their claims were actually true.
Trump has specifically referred to the search as a “surprise attack” and “political targeting at the highest level,” yet NBC News recently quoted a close Trump insider stating, “No, we’re not releasing a copy of the warrant.”

However, following Garland’s bombshell, unexpected press conference this afternoon, it no longer matters what Trump and his people want or were personally willing to do.
Following multiple public calls and demands made by the American people and various overwatch entities, Marrick Garland used the opening statement of today’s briefing to confirm that the search warrant against Donald Trump’s Palm Beach, Florida, Mar-a-Lago resort and home would officially be unsealed. Garland was able to make this call, ironically enough, on the basis that Donald Trump himself has already publicly confirmed that the raid took place in the unhinged rant he released to CNN and on his social media platform in the direct aftermath of the search.
