Memo to Merrick Garland: You Are NOT Above The Law

Attorney General Merrick Garland received a message from Ohio Republican Rep. Mike Turner. Even he is not exempt from the law.

On Sunday, he made an appearance on the CNN program “State of the Union,” where he advised Garland to exercise caution.

“Well, we have a few worries. The first is whether the raid was necessary. Although the FBI has provided us with this list, it is unclear whether or not it constitutes the highest level of classified material or whether it is actually classified. Show us the goods, Congress is saying on a bipartisan basis, he said, according to Breitbart News.

“We want to know, first, what the FBI and the Department of Justice told the judge they would find, and what they found. There is nothing in those boxes that the intelligence committee’s members or the committee itself can’t see. If it becomes an immediate threat to national security, which is required in order to actually raid the president’s home. They had a variety of options at their disposal, including going straight to court and requesting that the judge uphold the subpoena they had, the representative said.

“Now, it’s obvious that no one is above the law. Attorney General Garland and Donald Trump are both not above the law.

Congress has oversight authority. He must conform. Similar content has been presented before. Materials submitted to courts for warrants have been seen by us. This has happened before. He has a lot of questions to answer because his actions are unprecedented in history, the speaker said.

During its raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, the FBI took possession of documents that were shielded by executive privilege and possibly attorney-client privilege.

 

According to a source speaking exclusively to Fox News, the Department of Justice refused the former president’s attorneys’ request to name a special master to examine the records.

The former president’s team was informed that information found in boxes with the labels A-14, A-26, A-43, A-13, and A-33, as well as a group of documents—all visible on the final page of the FBI’s property receipt—contained information protected by attorney-client privilege, according to sources familiar with the investigation, who spoke to Fox News on Saturday.

During its historic dawn raid on Trump’s Palm Beach residence on Monday, the FBI took several top-secret and other classified documents. The former president, however, disputes this and claims that the records have been declassified.

The executive privilege, which allows the president of the United States and other members of the executive branch to withhold some sensitive forms of advice and consultation between the president and senior advisors, may apply to some records, according to sources who spoke to Fox News.

On his truth Social account on Sunday, the former president commented, “Oh great! Recently, it has come to light that the FBI intentionally should not have taken boxes of privileged “attorney-client” and “executive” material during its now-famous raid on Mar-a-Lago. I respectfully request that these papers be delivered back to their original location as soon as possible by means of a copy of this TRUTH. Thanks a lot!
