Hi there,

Can you donate $10 per month to support Democracy Now!’s independent journalism all year long? Since our very first broadcast in 1996, we’ve refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. When Democracy Now! covers war and peace or the climate crisis, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers or the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. When we cover healthcare, we’re not brought to you by the insurance industry or Big Pharma. Our journalism is powered by YOU. But that means we can’t do our work without you.Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $10 donation this month will be worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part today. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

AG Merrick Garland Calls for Release of Warrant Used in FBI Search of Trump’s Home

HeadlineAug 12, 2022

Attorney General Merrick Garland has asked a federal judge to unseal the warrant the FBI used in its August 8 search of former President Donald Trump’s estate in Florida. Garland announced the request Thursday as he delivered his first public comments since Trump said the FBI had searched his Mar-a-Lago residence on Monday.

Attorney General Merrick Garland: “The department filed the motion to make public the warrant and receipt in light of the former president’s public confirmation of the search, the surrounding circumstances and the substantial public interest in this matter.”

Garland said he personally approved the warrant, and condemned verbal attacks on the FBI and Justice Department by Trump and his allies.
