Professor Lawrence Tripp of Harvard Law School walked through Donald Trump's "bizarre" court file asking the court to appoint a reviewer for records seized from his golf club after a search warrant. However, pleading guilty is one of the things that was quite amazing.




Professor Lawrence Tripp of Harvard Law School walked through Donald Trump's "bizarre" court file asking the court to appoint a reviewer for records seized from his golf club after a search warrant. However, pleading guilty is one of the things that was quite amazing.


Marcy Wheeler, legal analyst at EmptyWheel, shared part of the documents showing the bizarre confession of guilt.


Trump received a subpoena on May 11, 2022, according to the court record, and on June 2 of that year, "President Trump, through a lawyer, invited the FBI to come to Mar-a-Lago to collect responsive documents."





A month or so after the subpoena, Trump allowed the FBI to verify his records. Why, then, did Trump continue to possess materials after June 2 and request a search warrant?


  • "It's very strange," he said.
  • "For one thing, they were not filed on behalf of ordinary citizen Trump but were filed on behalf of President Donald J.
  • Trump. You know, it was never clear that he distinguished between him as a private citizen and him as president.
  • This may help explain why he himself feels entitled to all these papers.


He says they're his. That's a really weird thing. Something else very strange, you mentioned yourself just a minute ago: he waited two weeks. It is therefore too late to request a new special milestone. "

He continued: "Then, finally, it's weird, not much to say but what not to say.


 "It does not provide any substantial grounds for believing that this memorandum was unlawful. In fact, one of the amazing things I agree with is the statement on page 13 that President Trump, who still calls himself President Trump, should not


He continued: "Then, finally, it's weird, not much to say but what not to say."


  • It does not provide any substantial grounds for believing that this memorandum was unlawful.
  • Indeed, one of the surprising things I agree with is the statement on page 13 that President Trump
  • who still calls himself President Trump, should not be treated differently than any other citizen.


Finally, he got that right. Any other citizen who took highly classified material not only to a private home but to a resort, such as Mar-a-Lago, which was hacked by Chinese spies and possibly by others, will be prosecuted under the Espionage Act. So, he's kind of asking Merrick Garland to try him. Thank you, Mr. Trump, I will not call him President Trump. "


On Monday night, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman discovered that the records contained more than 300 secret elements, including information about the role of the National Security Agency, the CIA and the FBI in national security. In addition to being hidden in storage space, the documents were also kept in Donald Trump's private office closet. However, it is unclear whether the FBI was aware of this prior to the search.
