The Justice Department on Friday made public a heavily redacted version of the Trump raid affidavit, ABC News reported.
The judge ordered the release of the redacted Trump raid affidavit by noon Friday.
“In a two-page order, Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart said he had accepted the government’s redacted version of the affidavit, which it filed under seal Thursday morning ahead of a noon deadline.” The New York Post reported.
Major media outlets demanded the release of the probable cause affidavit behind the FBI’s raid of Trump’s Florida residence.
Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch also demanded the release of the affidavit.
Trump on Friday blasted the “political hacks and thugs” at the FBI.
“The political Hacks and Thugs had no right under the Presidential Records Act to storm Mar-a-Lago and steal everything in sight, including Passports and privileged documents,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “They even broke into my safe with a safecracker – Can you believe? This Act was created for a very good reason, and it works. We are right now living in a Lawless Country, that just so happens to be, also, a Failing Nation!”

So much for transparency…
The DOJ redacted their reasons for redactions in their justification for raiding Trump’s home!
DOJ and FBI are so corrupt that they’re redacting their reasons for redactions in their justification for raiding a U.S. president’s home.
However much contempt you have for these lawless agencies, it’s not nearly enough. pic.twitter.com/dUCOqiYVfP
