Just a day after AG Merrick Garland scolded Americans who have questioned the integrity of the DOJ and FBI, the two agencies continue to leak like a sieve. Unlike the Hunter Biden case, which has been locked down tight for years, there’s a relative river of information being revealed about the raid on Donald Trump’s home in Florida. It’s almost like the federal law enforcement apparatus is hopelessly partisan and corrupt, right?
Now, The Wall Street Journal is reported it has actually reviewed the documents taken and is providing a description of them, including how many sets of classified documents were retrieved.

FBI agents who searched former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home Monday removed 11 sets of classified documents, including some marked as top secret and meant to be only available in special government facilities, according to documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation agents took around 20 boxes of items, binders of photos, a handwritten note and the executive grant of clemency for Mr. Trump’s ally Roger Stone, a list of items removed from the property shows. Also included in the list was information about the “President of France,” according to the three-page list. The list is contained in a seven-page document that also includes the warrant to search the premises which was granted by a federal magistrate judge in Florida.
The irony here is so thick you can cut it with a knife. According to the DOJ and the liberal press, these documents were so super-secret and important that they justified raiding a former president’s home with dozens of armed agents. Yet, they are apparently just fine to show off to journalists knowing the details will be published for all the world to see.
Further, the FBI went through all this trouble, breaking precedent, in order to retrieve only 11 pieces of classified information. That’s less than what Hillary Clinton had on her illegal bathroom server, including special access materials, and she was never raided.
Other than that, the rest of the stuff taken appears to have been Trump’s personal effects. Letters that were written him. Notes he and his staff wrote. Visitors lists and the like. Nothing that would come close to providing justification for raiding his home. None of this adds up because it’s not meant to add up.
In short, this is more evidence that the DOJ and FBI acted politically to embarrass Trump, knowing they would then selectively leak materials to drive a negative narrative about the former president in the press. Sure enough, the mainstream media are more than happy to play along. Worse, no one will be held accountable.
