A Federal Judge Would Never, Ever Show Political Bias In Authorizing a Raid on a President
* Except It Wasn't a Federal Judge-- It Was a Mere Magistrate
* Who Was an Obama Donor
* Who Was an Epstein Lawyer

@davidaxelrod


One thing is very clear.
Garland would not have authorized this raid, and no federal judge would have signed off on it, if there weren't significant evidence to warrant it.

We heard that all with the FISA warrants too, obese schlub c*cks*cker.

It's incredible how quickly we are Demanded to Forget in this Empire of Lies.

And he wasn't a federal judge. Rather than getting a federal judge, the Corrupt Merrick Garland went to a mere federal magistrate -- a lesser official who signs warrants and handles lesser judicial functions -- and instead of getting a federal magistrate without any conflicts of interest, he made sure he shopped this to an Obama donor and partner in The Regime.

He walked out of the US Attorney's office which was prosecuting Epstein to create a defense law firm, and began representing Epstein's employees the day after quitting the government.

So you know he's tight with The Regime.

A Florida magistrate judge who reportedly signed off on the FBI's raid of former President Donald Trump's home has ties to convicted sex offender and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead of an apparent suicide in August 2019.

Sources told The New York Post that Judge Bruce Reinhart approved the search warrant that authorized the raid of the former president's home. That judge had previously represented Epstein employees who had received immunity in the investigation of Epstein's sex trafficking, according to the Miami Herald.

Reinhart reportedly resigned from the South Florida U.S. Attorney's Office on January 1, 2008, and the next day went to represent the Epstein employees. He told the Miami Herald that he represented Epstein's pilots, Epstein's scheduler Sarah Kellen, and Epstein's reported "Yugoslavian sex slave" Nadia Marcinkova.

He was representing Epstein's employees but have no doubt, Epstein was paying the bills, to keep them from turning on him.

I don't think that worked, because they were later immunized.

He would later be named in the 2011 Crime Victims’ Rights Act lawsuit, accusing him of violating DOJ policies through the job change in the midst of the Epstein investigation, according to the Herald.

Reinhart denied this allegation, claiming he "never learned any confidential, non-public information about the Epstein matter," according to the Herald, and denying that he participated in the Epstein case while at the South Florida U.S. Attorney's Office.

Oh, Heaven forfend! There was a full 10 hours before stopping work at the one and beginning work for the other.

And it is alleged he is lying about that, too.

His former colleagues contradicted this in a 2013 court filing that said Reinhart had learned "confidential, non-public information about the Epstein matter," the New York Post reported. In response to this accusation, Reinhart reportedly told the Herald that the Justice Department had dismissed a complaint that an Epstein victim's lawyer had filed against him.

He was appointed to in 2018. I wrongly said that Trump must have appointed him in a big batch, but McCool says Presidents don't appoint magistrates at all. And he's right -- they're appointed by all active judges in the circuit.


He donated to Obama twice in 2008, and then decided he was a fan of Jeb! in 2015, and donated to him.

So this Democrat donated to a Republican -- for probably one of the few times in his life -- to oppose Trump.

And this is the "federal judge" -- except he's not a federal judge; he's, at best, an assistant judge who looks over subpeonas and records requests and records submissions -- that Merrick Garland got to sign his warrant.


Symone D. Sanders, former spokesbimbo for Kamala Harris, is demanding the media -- and I'd imagine, social media -- stop permitting people to call the raid on the president's home a raid.

changethedefinition.jpg

How long do you think it will be before the social media monopolies begin slapping a "Misleading Claim" on to any post describing the raid accurately as "a raid"?

The fact that Merrick Garland used a "mishandling of official documents" pretext to order an FBI raid on a former president's home -- for the first time in history! And that's not even a major charge you'd even consider breaking out such a major response for -- is troublesome. Merrick Garland, stopped by Republicans from getting on the Supreme Court by Trump's election, is using fairly minor federal no-no's as a pretext for federal raids on political enemies, and the likely opponent of his boss in 2024.

Which, The Atlantic magazine tells us, only proves that the Department of Justice is... independent from Biden!

@AndrewYang


It looks increasingly like the FBI raid was to find mishandled classified documents and not some other DOJ investigation which was my first thought. Mishandling documents doesn’t seem like raid material. It does however seem like excellent campaign material for Trump.


"If they raided his home just to find classified documents he took from The White House," one legal expert noted, "he will be re-elected president in 2024, hands down. It will prove to be the greatest law enforcement mistake in history."

Virtually everyone agrees that this is yet another pretext warrant -- the pretext is that the FBI is raiding his home to get documents, which apparently were so sensitive they let them sit at Mar-a-Lago for almost two years.

The reality is that the warrant was just used as a pretext to search his home to find anything that might incriminate him as far as January 6th. They have "taint teams" separating the documents they're permitted to look for from his private, personal correspondence and his communications with his lawyers.

Do you think that maybe, Whoops!, the ham-and-eggers of the taint team might just accidentally slip some of the non-covered documents into the covered pile? Or maybe write down notes about the documents they weren't allowed to see but, Whoops!, did see?

@presjpolk
You wanna know why limited government is becoming less popular in the GOP?

Because it's viewed as capitulation.


If you want to make limited government more palatable, do something about the Democrats.

Non-negotiable.

If your answer is "Oh well" then you are going to sound like you're out of touch at best, or siding with the Democrats at worst.

This is a loss of faith in the institutions, and it must be repaired by constructive acts that rebuild trust.

This is big tech all over again.

When major corporations are using corporate welfare to attack their political opposition, and your answer is just to shrug and say 'free markets,' then you cede the field to those with answers.

That's why Ron DeSantis wins, and others lose.

The burden of proof is on the side of limited government to show how people like President Biden, Attorney General Garland, and FBI Director Wray will be held accountable for abuses of power.

Clinton committed perjury and obstruction and walked.

Obama and Holder ran guns to Mexican cartels and walked.

It can't go just one way, folks. Not if you want buy-in into the rule of law.

51 Magistrates are not Article III judges. They are essentially deputy judges who handle overflow, warrants, discovery disputes, etc. BTW, IIRC (I mostly do state court stuff), the parties in a civil suit are entitled to an Article III judge unless they stip to a magistrate (though often a magistrate will be forced on them if only to hear the dispute and draft a report for the Article III judge appointed).

Some decades ago (I read the case in 1994-ish, so likely 70's or 80's) the federal bankruptcy court system was found to violate Article III because bankruptcy judges were not appointed for life, etc. That got fixed by making the bankruptcy system essentially a minor league -- you don't get an Article III judge but you do get a do-over in the Federal District Court with an Article III judge. Of course, there are "penalties" for not playing ball, but the theory works.

The best government is one that does the least to effectively protect liberties of its citizens.

70 >>>21 My carefully-crafted comment about The Flash, hopelessly willood on the last thread. Tears in the rain.

almost all of the DC characters are lighter, sillier, and more kid-friendly, because they were made for young children. Marvel came out and pitched itself to somewhat older kids -- 12-14 year olds instead of 8-11 year olds -- and DC was called the "kids' comics."

This gave DC a bad chip on its shoulder which it has now had for fifty years, and it is always trying to prove how DARK and GRITY it is since Marvel first passed it in sale in the 70s.

But their characters are not dark and gritty (except maybe batman), and trying to make them that just makes a mess of them. They just keep fighting the basic nature of their own property and they keep failing because if it.

162 "Virtually everyone agrees that this is yet another pretext warrant -- the pretext is that the FBI is raiding his home to get documents, which apparently were so sensitive they let them sit at Mar-a-Lago for almost two years."

It was pretextual. But the most egregious violation of civil liberties and attorney/client privilege happened when Michael Cohen's office was raided by the Evil Empire's janissaries. That also was pretextual. The ABA did not utter a peep because its members like fascism.

Impeachments of Wray and Garland are fully justified. I'm certain Biden on his way out will pardon them but given this happened in Florida there may be some state abuse of process laws that can be used to at least make them go to trial and spend oodles of money. Of course, given McConnell takes bribes from the same sources as Biden, the Senate will not convict, but again, this is so outrageous state charges could be successfully brought, I think. And, yes, there are other remedies.

Obama is a step-'n-fetchit and whore for the Ruling Class, but my guess is he was behind this and instigated it. Obama needs to be personally destroyed and at a minimum and expelled from the United States.

173 Back in the '70s, when I was a young A1C USAF Cop, we'd file our on-base cases for CIVILIAN offenders, with the U.S. Federal Magistrate at the Federal Courthouse (now named after Hon. John Woods, assassinated by Charles Harrelson, father of actor Woody Harrelson.)

To my point though.. back then, the limits on what a Federal Magistrate could sentence an offender to, was a maximum of a $500 fine and no more than six-months in federal prison. Amounts on fines have likely grown with inflation since then, but I'd imagine the six month limit would still be the same?

Which serves to argue this: What the HELL is a mere Magistrate doing, issuing a Warrant against a former President of the United States of America? Penny-Ante futhermucking Puny Ass Not-A-Judge ordering a 72 oz. Tomahawk from the Judicial Menu, when he's supposed to only order from the Child's Page.

[I'm old enough to remember this event and comment from earlier today:]

Chicago Tribune • Jun 10, 1996

LAS VEGAS — President Clinton conceded Sunday that the administration mistakenly obtained the FBI files of more than 300 people, including many top Republicans, in late 1993 as the result of a "completely honest bureaucratic snafu" involving security clearances. His chief of staff, Leon Panetta, told reporters that "obviously a mistake was made" and apologized to the people whose FBI files wound up at the White House. Clinton did not apologize directly, but said "I completely support" what Panetta said about the affair.

This is known as an a priori argument: this is true because I said it. You're presuming the conclusion without any argument or evidence. There's no sane reason to assume that the DOJ would never, ever act without just cause and sufficient legal justification. Not any more, and probably not ever.

The worst part of it? When it comes out that they did not, in fact, have sufficient justification, that will not be evidence that the DOJ did wrong, only that they were forced by circumstances and the evil of their target to bend things a little like an action movie.

244 From everythign I have heard and read, there are certain judges who are very lenient and willing to issue a search warrant on the slimmest information, particularly against people the consider Bad. Its just a matter of shopping around to find one.

However, I understood that you had to get a federal judge to issue a warrant allowing the FBI to raid someone's home, since they are not local law enforcement and have specific allegedly limited jurisdiction.

Like, the FBI cannot raid your home looking for evidence of robbing the 7-11, its not federal.

268 When the system releases a member of a certain group without bail after this person commits serious crimes, but the system jails a member of a certain group for defending his life (from a member of the aforesaid group), you have 2 sets of laws. This system gives you 3 sets of law enforcement officers. The first set is corrupt and will follow any order given to break the law, the second set is not corrupt as the first but will hesitate to enforce the law (see above aforesaid group). The third set are still honest brokers and want to follow the Constitution, thus they are the smallest set.

269 We heard that all with the FISA warrants too, obese schlub c*cks*cker.

Listen, this is totally preposterous. In the entire history of FISA there have been only 41,222 FISA warrants requested in a FISC. Of those, 40,688 were approved. Of the difference of 534, 85 were flat-out denied by the FISC. The FISC is not a simple rubber-stamp organization and it does deny warrant requests. Those warrants require thorough and aggressive validation and a tremendously high standard of evidence. 1.3% of all FISA warrant requests were not successful. Given the rigorous standards required prior to even beginning the request process, we should expect perfect conversion, not a significant failure rate for warrants to convert.

And even if a bad FISA warrant is issued, there are remedies including fines and jail time.

You "heard all that with the FISA warrants too" because in that case, JUST LIKE IN THIS ONE, it was *true.* Your guy being a crook doesn't mean that the law, its procedures, its protections, its rules or its applicability are suddenly irrelevant.

I will honestly be surprised if there is any at all. I think they got a magistrate they knew was dirty and said "hey write something that will cover anything we find, call it "secret" so we can write it up after the raid is over." And now they found nothing, and they don't know how to explain the blank sheet of paper they were holding when they went in.

Some decades ago (I read the case in 1994-ish, so likely 70's or 80's) the federal bankruptcy court system was found to violate Article III because bankruptcy judges were not appointed for life, etc. That got fixed by making the bankruptcy system essentially a minor league -- you don't get an Article III judge but you do get a do-over in the Federal District Court with an Article III judge. Of course, there are "penalties" for not playing ball, but the theory works.

If things go colander face mask world the ruling elite is going to be handed shovels to dig their own graves.

414 Even without the incestuous relations between prosecuting and defense teams, the whole Maxwell "prosecution" itself stank to high heaven.

In an operation that should have implicated scores of high level co conspirators (what it undoubtedly took to pull of a child/sex trafficking operation of that size, sophistication and duration) the only prosecution seems to have been Ghislaine, who "took the fall" as they said in the old detective novels for everything.

And all those girls sexualized and abused so our government could run a massive Kompromat farm. And I'll bet a lot of our brave operatives had to go "deep cover" to run the operation, balls deep I'm sure.

I think this raid tells us that this pathetic bullshit is all he's got. For all the hoo-hah about J6, Liz Cneney never *once* came up with any evidence of anything Trump did that violated any existing statutory law. And thus they are down to "Okay Trump asked people to stand down and go home, but he didn't do it fast enough or loud enough so That's A Crime!!!". This looks like an attempt to get something like what they hung around Petraeus' neck, but the problem right off is that Trump had the authority to declassify material while he was pres.

464 I was listening to Montreal radio news at lunchtime. Even though in French, which I can make out about 80% of now, the far left view is the standard lens when reporting the news and comes through very clear even as a second language to me. Incredibly, they led the news with a very straight report about the raid. I think even Canadian left-wing media types sees this as very disturbing.

548 Again, my number one "look" in the released statements is whether they refer to Trump as "President" or "former President".

The first is no guarantee of loyal bona fides but the second is a blatant "tell" that you can happily ignore and/or fight that person the rest of your life, no questions asked.

That such a thing as a "sealed warrant" or a "sealed indictment" exists at all is appalling enough all on its own. There is no excuse and no justification for that. If the state is going after you, it must disclose why and exactly what they're looking for or what you're being charged for violating. Secrecy has no place - none, whatsoever, for any reason - in this process.

560 Records covered by the Presidential Records Act encompass documentary materials relating to the political activities of the President or members of the President’s staff if they concern or have an effect upon the carrying out of “constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties of the President” (44 U.S.C. § 2201(2)). The PRA does not reach “private” records of the President such as diaries, materials relating exclusively to a presidential campaign, and records concerning private political associations (44 U.S.C. § 2201(3)).

And to those who cry "concern troll". I voted Trump twice. I acknowledge the good he's done but I also acknowledge how.stupid and foolish he's been at times. I despise the BS he had to deal with from FEDs and media. But there are plenty of instances he's made his own bed. He also did next to nothing for the people who didn't commit violence yet were arrested over Jan 6. Part of me almost hopes they have a little something on him, just enough to keep him from running again. It is way past time to move on from him.

626 That the FBI raid was let out on the Democrats Propaganda Ministry almost as soon as it happened want to bet some news crew was along for the raid?

627 I find it odd that they do a raid in Florida and not New York as well. I think this was a message to DeSantis also. F*ck your States Rights. Watch this.

628 Still, to your point, they shouldn't exist, because if you don't think you actually have the goods on someone, you shouldn't have indicted them in the first damn place.
Posted by: Warai-otoko at August 09, 2022 04:35 PM (6FeV1)

I can understand a sealed indictment so you can arrest someone... so they won't flee... but once the arrest is made, it should become unsealed.

I can't understand how a Subpoena can remain sealed AFTER IT IS SERVED.

629 The fact that nothing's been leaked as far as the actual reason for the raid shows how serious is it.

Well that's an interesting spin. I guess we'll find out, but the way the left loves to gloat and smear everyone's face in things, if this was super hot and important we'd know by now.

So, I'm a glutton for punishment so I looked on urbandictionary and the #1 definition is "do not look it up." That's awfully telling.

631 Like the thousands of pages related to the Russia that Trump did declassify before leaving office but the Deep State fought their actual release until after Trump was gone?

This has been mentioned several times but here's what I don't get. If the President wanted certain documents released, why does he need someone else to do it? Why couldn't he call a press conference and say "I have declassified these documents. I also had them digitized and copied onto these 100 thumb drives in this box. Any reporter who wants one, come up here and get it."

636 Hilariously, the front-running propaganda press is out saying inflation report coming tomorrow morning (expected at 8.7%, annualized) is really not so terrible. Big decline from the 9.1% number last recorded, dontchaknow. Big decline. Hardly even an issue anymore. That's their expectation: the worst report in 40 years, except for the last report.

Second biggest number in forty years notwithstanding, I guess I now understand better why they timed this illegal raid the way they did.

Posted by: Huck Follywood at August 09, 2022 04:41 PM (lFE5c)

637 If Trump has damaging evidence he wouldn't keep it where the dunces at the FBI could get their turd hooks on it. It will be overseas somewhere safe.

639 553 Trump has the warrant. The fact he isn't releasing it to the public is telling. If this is just regarding archives and classification stuff, he would've released the warrant. I've seen some lefties say the archive stuff doesn't justify raid. There is more to this, there has to be. If there wasn't, Trump would've released the warrant by now. He's in deep sh*t, I believe

641 "The wife and I were married by a Federal Magistrate when we were stationed on Adak, Alaska. IIRC he was the federal magistrate for Unalaska, Alaska and yes he could issue search warrants but all he did was marriages and divorces mostly."

Aw, how nice. I guess you're one of those that think Trump has shown any sign that he's learned anything and would be different a second time around. He made bad hires from day one till the end. He selected Wray, even.

Posted by: BillBixby at August 09, 2022 04:50 PM (nPGg6)

644 I think a lot of people were getting comfortable with the idea of moving on and going with DeSantis. But that almost feels like surrender today. The point of all of this is to destroy OUR candidate and then move on to the next. DeSantis would be under indictment by the deep state before the next election if Trump were to tap out. The deep state is running things now and our best bet might be to fight on this hill.

651 Hey! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
Does running a well-established website like yours take a
massive amount work? I'm brand new to operating a
blog but I do write in my journal daily. I'd like
to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
Thankyou!
