    Garland also said he personally approved the search warrant,

    OK, that’s pretty significant right there.
    One hopes that means election issues were considered.

    We also know it was 15 boxes were taken and it was “national security” stuff.
    And supposedly the FBI were informed of this stuff’s existence and it’s location by someone who found the boxes and is thus at Trump’s house.

    So… PR move by Trump himself? He has the nuclear launch codes or a list of all Russian moles, and obstructs knowing they’ll have to do this and he’ll make it look really bad?Report

      What election…?

      2022? Trump isn’t running.

      2024? That’s 27 months away. If a potential candidate can’t be investigated 27 months prior to an election, everyone will start declaring their candidacy.Report

    Trump having the chance to object is fascinating. If he does, it means Garland called his bluff.Report

      They’re playing different games.

      Trump has a box full of nuclear secrets that are worthless to him. Garland wants it.

      Trump would like to have various investigations dropped. Or alternatively, he’d like Garland to TAKE the boxes. Or at the very worst, burn lots of lawyer time chasing them and not Jan 6th.

      Not taking the boxes means we have nuclear secrets in a box in Trump’s basement (and also have lawyers tied up). Taking the boxes gives Trump the chance to drama queen.Report
