An Obama SUPPORTER? – More Details on Trump’s FBI Raid
(TheRedWire.com) – On Monday, August 8, the FBI executed a search warrant at Former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida. It was the first time in US history that law enforcement agents raided a former head of state’s home. Earlier in 2022, the National Archives told the Justice Department several presidential records went missing after he left office in January 2021. Eric Trump said his father negotiated with the National Archives for months and agreed to give some of the materials back.
Republican lawmakers and many public citizens expressed outrage and said the FBI overreached. Still, it’s led people to ask questions like what did the search warrant include, and which judge signed off on it? There are no clear answers to the first question, but reporters have learned about the jurist.
Was the Judge an Anti-Trumper?
Law enforcement’s involvement in political theatrics can undermine the legal system. In 2016, former FBI Director James Comey improperly absolved Hillary Clinton. He stated she violated federal law by using unsecured email systems and sharing classified information but stated no reasonable prosecutor would file criminal charges. After Clinton authorized her campaign to leak information alleging Trump colluded with Russia, Democrats, the FBI, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) investigated the allegations for nearly three years.
So, is it improper to ask who signed off the search warrant, and might there be ulterior motives?
On Tuesday, POLITICO reported US Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart reportedly signed a sealed warrant allowing the FBI to conduct the raid. It appears he supported convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and political candidates in the past who may be anti-Trump.
Records show Reinhart donated $1,000 to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, $1,000 to the Obama Victory Fund, and $500 to Jeb Bush’s 2016 presidential campaign. It should also be noted that the judge did in fact donate to Donald Trump, although it was a smaller sum of money.
From 1996 to 2008, Reinhart served as an assistant US attorney in the Southern District of Florida. Then, he left to open a private criminal practice. On July 14, 2019, the Miami Times reported that Reinhart represented Epstein’s accomplices, who the government accused of trafficking underage girls. In 2011, he provided an affidavit in a civil case that he was not part of Epstein’s investigation while a US attorney. Yet, the US attorney’s office filed a court document disputing the claim.
Do the Donations and Legal Experiences Mean Much?
Normally, the donations and legal background of attorneys may not mean anything. Yet, it could mean a lot in the age of Donald Trump. The appearance may be significant in an atmosphere of distrust created by Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans who will stop at nothing to end the former president’s political career and tarnish millions of MAGA voters.
What do you think? Did the judge target Trump? Did his past support of those who targeted the former president show it’s possible?
