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.
