Liberty Under Siege
Last week amid intense pressure, Attorney General Merrick Garland made a big display of going before the cameras to tell us that the Justice Department was asking a court to make public the details justifying the FBI raid on Trump’s home.
Yesterday, the Justice Department abandoned its commitment to transparency. It suddenly reversed course, and is now refusing to tell us what the probable cause for the search was. Needless to say, Donald Trump is demanding the release of the full, unredacted FBI affidavit requesting the warrant.
I want to remind you of the Fourth Amendment to the Bill of Rights because these are the key words in this controversy.
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
The word “particularly” means that government agents must be very specific when they seek a warrant. By any reasonable standard, the raid on Trump’s home violated the Fourth Amendment.
We know that FBI agents spent more than nine hours rummaging through Trump’s home. They even went through the former first lady’s clothes? Maybe they wanted to try on a pair of her high heals?
We now know that FBI agents seized Trump’s passports and other documents protected by attorney client privilege.
As Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz put it, this raid was “absolutely outrageous and unconstitutional.”
As we get older, we learn that unless we exercise our muscles, they wither away. The same thing is true of a free country that doesn’t exercise its rights. (or a Christian their Spiritual weapons)
The raid on Mar-a-Lago was unprecedented in its audacity, but it’s not an exception. It’s just another example of the left’s ongoing assault against our rights and liberty.
The intolerant left routinely attacks the First Amendment’s freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and religion of religion.
The totalitarian left routinely attacks the Second Amendment right to protect yourself and your family.
Now it’s attacking the Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures.
They’re doing it against a former president and the leading opponent of the regime that occupies the White House, which is why so many people are comparing it to the actions of tyrannical states like Cuba, communist China and Venezuela.
And if they will do it to a former president, they will do it to you!
