Judge will release part of Mar-a-Lago warrant
The federal judge in Florida who approved the warrant for the FBI to search former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate says he is inclined to partially unseal the affidavit that prosecutors used to secure it.

At a court hearing in West Palm Beach, Fla., Thursday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart ordered the Justice Department to file a redacted version of the affidavit by next Thursday, and told prosecutors to be prepared to explain the rationale behind those redactions.

Multiple news organizations had asked Reinhart to unseal the affidavit detailing the probable cause on which the search warrant was based.

“The public interest could not be greater,” Chuck Tobin, a lawyer representing the media groups, argued in court Thursday.
