DOJ admits to over-collecting evidence in Trump raid, to return Privileged Documents

FBI agents may also have “mistakenly” collected privileged documents and plan to return those.

By John Solomon

In an acknowledgment the FBI over-collected evidence during the Mar-a-Lago raid, the Justice Department informed Donald Trump’s team Monday that agents seized the former president’s passports and are obligated to return them, Just the News has learned.

The department was making plans Monday evening to return the passports and has also alerted defense lawyers the FBI may have obtained materials covered by various privileges that will be returned in the next two weeks, two sources told Just the News. 

DOJ has designated a process for separating materials that could be covered by executive privilege or attorney client privilege, the sources said.

“Occasionally a warrant collection can grab things outside the scope authorized by the court and the department is now following a procedure we would for any person affected this way,” one official said Monday night.

The sources spoke only on the condition of anonymity because the communications between the two sides are confidential.

The revelation came as Trump lawyers are discussing whether to go to court to demand a special legal officer be designated to review Trump evidence that was seized that was outside the scope of the warrant.

A former senior FBI executive said it was surprising that agents collected evidence outside the scope of the warrant because it was already worded unusually broad, unlike most warrants he said during his tenure.

“Trump’s attorneys could have a runway to argue the scope of the search is overly broad,” retired Assistant FBI Director Kevin Brock said. “Search warrants normally require a level of specificity that seems to be missing in this warrant.  Specificity is important in order to protect 4th Amendment rights from exuberant government overreach designed to find whatever they can.”

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, whose conservative watchdog regularly sues the government to release documents and is seeking to compel release of documents in the Trump search, said the government’s first court filings appear to describe an overly broad search that went far beyond classified records. 

“They were engaged in a fishing expedition, and the warrant itself wasn’t about classified information, though it mentioned it,” Fitton told Just the News. “It talked about all sort of other documents. It basically gave the FBI carte blanc to anything they wanted from the Trump home. 

“And the fact that a judge signed off on it is very troubling,” he added.

Arizona filling U.S. — Mexico border Wall Gap

Arizona filling U.S. — Mexico border Wall Gap


Arizona filling U.S. — Mexico border Wall Gap

“Arizona has had enough,” Gov. Doug Ducey said while ordering the construction that began this weekend.

By The Center Square Staff | A Just the News Partner

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (Pictured below) issued an Executive Order on Friday directing the Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs to fill the gaps in the Yuma border wall starting immediately.

“Arizona has had enough,” Ducey said in a press release. “We can’t wait any longer. The Biden administration’s lack of urgency on border security is a dereliction of duty. For the last two years, Arizona has made every attempt to work with Washington to address the crisis on our border. Time and time again we’ve stepped in to clean up their mess. Arizonans can’t wait any longer for the federal government to deliver on their delayed promises.”

The Executive Order came days after the Biden administration abandoned the Remain in Mexico policy.

The governor’s office called the Biden administration’s decision “misguided.” It added that the White House has failed to secure the border, allowing transnational criminal organizations to bring more drugs over the southern border.

“Our border communities are being used as the entryway to the United States, overwhelming law enforcement, hospitals, nonprofits and residents,” Ducey said in the release. “It’s our responsibility to protect our citizens and law enforcement from this unprecedented crisis. With the resources and manpower in the right places, our Border Patrol and law enforcement will be better equipped to do their jobs well and prevent cartels from exploiting our communities. That’s exactly what our barrier mission will do.”

Arizona will use 60 double-stacked shipping containers reinforced with concertina wire at the top to secure this vulnerable part of the border.

The double-stacked containers with wire will reach 22 feet high. The governor’s office says the state will use 800-pound, 9-by-40-feet containers. For reference, the Trump administration’s border walls were 30 feet tall.

Construction to fill this 1,000-foot gap began Friday morning. Emergency management contractor Ashbritt is building the barrier. A 25-man team will likely complete the project over the weekend.

The project will cost the state $6 million.

“National security starts with border security. Biden’s border crisis deteriorates daily while the White House is silent,” Jonathan Lines, Yuma County Supervisor, said in the press release. “Border communities like Yuma bear the burden of a broken border while narcotics poison our youth, human smuggling rises and mass amounts of migrants wear on our nonprofits. Beyond that, the seizure of counterfeit products at our ports of entry affects American businesses. Governor Ducey has been a consummate partner, coordinating and leading state and local resources to do what the federal government won’t: secure the border.”

The Yuma Sector of the U.S.-Mexico border has been busy over the past year. It saw 235,230 migrant encounters from October 2021 to June 2022, according to a press release from the governor’s office.

“The Yuma community does not have the infrastructure to handle thousands of people crossing the border in need of food, shelter and medical services,” Yuma Mayor Doug Nicholls said in the press release. “The surge of migrants the federal government has allowed to trek over the border has the grave potential to greatly impact and strain our community. Washington must send a clear message that this is not the way to immigrate to our country. Too many migrants make the treacherous journey that puts their lives in danger and exposes them to exploitation by cartels. Yuma has experienced the worst of the border crisis. We’re grateful to Governor Ducey for ingraining himself in this issue and finding solutions.”

Drugs have also made their way across the border. So far this fiscal year, more than 2,400 pounds of fentanyl have been seized in Arizona’s sectors. Fentanyl overdoses are now the leading cause of death for people 19 and younger in Pima County, according to the governor’s office.

“The White House lacks a sense of urgency and detail while the border crisis gets worse every day. In Arizona, we put our money where our mouth is,” Tim Roemer, Arizona Department of Homeland Security Director and the state’s Chief Information Security Officer, said in the press release.

“The brave men and women of law enforcement need this support so they can conduct their important work catching the people who don’t want to get caught and stopping lethal drugs from coming over the border. Governor Ducey once again showed he’ll take action to secure the border and give law enforcement every resource in the state’s power.”

Trump describes process of how he declassified documents found at Mar-a-Lago

Trump describes process of how he declassified documents found at Mar-a-Lago

Former president’s office says there was standing order that classified memos automatically declassified if moved to residence

By John Solomon

Donald Trump’s office told Just the News on Friday that the classified materials the FBI seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate were declassified under a “standing order” while he was president that allowed him to take sensitive materials to the White House residence at night to keep working.

The official statement is likely to become the focus of the president’s legal defense as the FBI and Biden Justice Department investigate whether he stole records covered under the Presidential Records Act or mishandled classified materials under the Espionage Act, allegations included in a search warrant released by a federal court in Florida on Friday.

The president’s defense is rooted in the legal principal that the president and vice president are the ultimate declassifying authority of the U.S. government and through executive orders most recently issued in 2003 by George W. Bush and Barack Obama in 2009 that specifically exempt the president and vice president from having to follow the stringent declassification procedures every other federal agency and official must follow.

Trump has maintained for weeks that any documents still containing classified markings in his possession after he left office were previously declassified. On Friday night, the statement issued to Just the News explained exactly how that declassification occurred in his mind.

The very fact that these documents were present at Mar-a-Lago means they couldn’t have been classified,” the former president’s office stated. “As we can all relate to, everyone ends up having to bring home their work from time to time. American presidents are no different. President Trump, in order to prepare for work the next day, often took documents including classified documents from the Oval Office to the residence.

“He had a standing order that documents removed from the Oval Office and taken into the residence were deemed to be declassified,” the statement added. “The power to classify and declassify documents rests solely with the President of the United States. The idea that some paper-pushing bureaucrat, with classification authority delegated BY THE PRESIDENT, needs to approve of declassification is absurd.”

Two former senior aides who worked for Trump in the latter half of his term said they were aware that Trump routinely took documents to the residence rather than return them to the Staff Secretary or the intelligence official who provided them. Asked whether there was a standing order, one former official “I don’t know anyone or anything that disputes that.”

Ordinarily, documents declassified by a president are later retrieved and marked declassified, usually by crossing a line through the prior classification markings. But former top aides to prior presidents acknowledged the president’s power to declassify was absolute and at times resulted in instant declassification decisions.

One prior administration official related an instance where his boss, while talking to a foreign leader, gave top-secret information to the leader, declassifying simply by sharing what he had seen in a top-secret marked document. Another official related an instance he witnessed in which a president, during a meeting, received a top secret document  and one official got up to leave because his clearance was only at the secret level.

“The president instantly approved that staffer to stay and consume the top-secret intelligence because it benefited the president’s work at that moment,” the person told Just the News.

The president’s detractors in Congress, the DOJ, and the intelligence community are likely to contest the president’s arguments. But officials familiar with national security law said courts generally have held the president’s power to declassify is far-reaching and that the process for how that happens can be more happenstance, something the Bush and Obama executive orders from 2003 and 2009 made clear.

Obama’s executive order no. 13526, issued in 2009, laid out the stringent process all federal officials and agencies needed to follow for declassification, but explicitly exempted the sitting president and vice president from having to follow those procedures.

 “Information originated by the incumbent President or the incumbent Vice President; the incumbent President’s White House Staff or the incumbent Vice President’s Staff; committees, commissions, or boards appointed by the incumbent President; or other entities within the Executive Office of the President that solely advise and assist the incumbent President is exempted from the provisions of paragraph (a) of this section,” the Obama order stated.

Officials said it is likely the FBI will seek to find any officials or witnesses who knew or can confirm there was a “standing order” as described by the Trump statement. But in the end, officials said the president’s declassification powers were sweeping and likely would be viewed as such by the courts.

Judicial Watch files motion to unseal FBI search warrant for Mar-a-Lago raid

“The Biden administration’s raid on President Trump’s home is an outrageous, reckless and unprecedented abuse of power,”  ~ Tom Fitton JW

By Ben Whedon

Judicial Watch on Tuesday announced that it filed a motion to unseal the search warrant that the FBI used to raid former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate of Mar-a-Lago on Monday evening.

Trump confirmed in a statement on Monday evening that FBI agents had entered his home and broke into his private safe.

“The are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”

The watchdog group wrote in its motion that “[t]he public has an urgent and substantial interest in understanding the predicate for the execution of the unprecedented search warrant of the private residence of a former president and likely future political opponent.”

“[N]o official explanation or information has been released about the search,” it continued. “As of the filing of this motion, the public record consists solely of speculation and inuendo [sic]. In short, the historical presumption of access to warrant materials vastly outweighs any interest the government may have in keeping the materials under seal.”

Sources familiar with the raid confirmed that the FBI agents came from the Washington Field Office and were reportedly seeking classified documents that Trump may have taken from the White House.

The Washington Field Office, moreover, has been the subject of intense scrutiny from Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, who has demanded answers from the Bureau over whistleblower claims that former Washington Field Office Assistant Special Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault showed political bias in his handling of investigations.

“The Biden administration’s raid on President Trump’s home is an outrageous, reckless and unprecedented abuse of power. And the American people have an urgent right to know how it happened and who is responsible,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a press release announcing the motion.

CDC admits “goof” on COVID vax link to heart inflammation

Second recent FOIA botch

Contrary to open records response, CDC pointed to myocarditis risk from vaccines as early as June 2021

By Greg Piper

Federal public health bureaucracies are having a bad stretch in response to Freedom of Information Act requests related to COVID-19, first accidentally unmasking a National Institutes of Health official who deleted Chinese-submitted coronavirus data and now providing false information about the CDC’s knowledge of heart inflammation following vaccination.

The CDC admitted its goof after The Epoch Times reported that its FOIA response denied the agency had any reports from the “Myopericarditis abstraction team” in the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System between April 2 and Oct. 2, 2021.

During that period, “no abstractions were performed for myocarditis: an association between myocarditis and mRNA COVID-19 vaccination was not known at that time,” FOIA Officer Roger Andoh told reporter Zachary Stieber July 29. “Likewise, we have no reports during that period.”

CDC researchers highlighted the vaccine-heart inflammation link in a June 2021 “editorial” in the Journal of the American Medical Association Cardiology, citing the journal’s new published studies from Duke University Medical Center and the U.S. Military Health System and an earlier Pediatrics study led by Oregon Health and Science University researchers.

“During the clinical evaluations of these patients, alternative etiologies [causes] for myocarditis were not detected,” including COVID infection itself, the CDC researchers wrote. The typical presentation was “[a]cute onset of chest pain 3 to 5 days after vaccine administration, usually after a second dose,” a rare occurrence with other vaccines and “causally linked only with smallpox immunization.”

The editorial noted the CDC advisory committee met days earlier to discuss the observed post-vaccination myocarditis and discuss “a benefit-risk assessment of COVID-19 mRNA vaccination programs in adolescents and young adults.” The American Medical Association came out against mandates earlier that month, saying COVID vaccines should first receive “full approval.”

An agency spokeswoman conceded it needed to correct the FOIA response. “Additional data accumulated in subsequent months, ultimately leading to the conclusion that a causative association did indeed exist,” she told the Times. “However, such a conclusion required time to accumulate and analyze data.”

The agency didn’t respond to Just the News queries asking how common such errors are and whether they illustrate overworked FOIA officers or an understaffed operation.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said the false response “raises even more questions about the agency’s honesty, transparency, and use, or lack thereof, of its safety surveillance systems” to detect vaccine-related adverse events. He told the Times the CDC has not responded to June 23 and July 25 letters asking about “the agency’s inability to find records demonstrating its use” of those systems.

The government asked a court last month to retroactively seal FOIA documents identifying NIH genetic sequencing database “curator” Rick Lapoint and Chinese researcher Kangpeng Xiao, who convinced him to delete March 2020 submitted sequences. Their identities had also been disclosed 19 months earlier in different litigation.

U.S. Magistrate Judge John Anderson rubber-stamped its proposed order July 22. Whistleblower assistance group Empower Oversight, which is suing for further disclosures, filed an objection July 27 noting the judge approved the order “five minutes” before it filed its “timely” opposition.

The docket shows a hearing has been set for Aug. 12 to consider NIH’s motion for summary judgment and Empower’s motion to set aside the sealing order.

Trump slate sweeps Top Arizona Primary Races

Trump slate sweeps Top Arizona Primary Races

Kari Lake wins Arizona GOP governor primary and is expected to face off against Katie Hobbs, who is currently Arizona’s Secretary of State

The Arizona GOP governor primary on Thursday evening was called for candidate Kari Lake, giving former President Donald Trump a clean sweep in the state in Tuesday night’s primaries.

She is expected to face off against Katie Hobbs, who is currently Arizona’s Secretary of State, to replace Republican Gov. Doug Ducey.

The Associated Press projected Lake as the winner with about 88.3% of the ballots counted. Lake came in with 46.8% of the vote. Lawyer Karrin Taylor Robson came in second to Lake with 44.0%.

Her victory is also a showdown between former President Trump and former Vice President Pence, the latter of whom endorsed Taylor Robson.

Lake celebrated her victory late Tuesday evening after a source told El American that she is the projected primary winner.

Lake, a former television news journalist, is known for her tough stance on the southern border.

“Kari will make her wonderful family, and the MAGA movement, very proud,” Trump said when he endorsed her.

Lake’s victory marked a perfect record for Trump-endorsed Republicans in the state’s major primary races. Venture capitalist Blake Masters claimed the party’s senatorial nomination while Mark Finchem won the secretary of state primary, and Abe Hamadeh won the attorney general primary contest.

Twitter threatened with class-action suit for Censoring Doctors on C19 VVV issues

Twitter threatened with class-action suit for Censoring Doctors who question COVID Vax

No action by Twitter against medical professor who mocked Florida surgeon general for disclosing childhood molestation — although platform locked out genomics researcher for “abusive” tweet fact-checking COVID vaccine trial.

By Greg Piper

Twitter and COVID-19 vaccine makers have been peas in a pod for the past 18 months, with the former heavily policing claims about the latter’s products even when the source of evidence is the FDA.

But with federal acknowledgments that the vaccines play only a marginal role in mitigating COVID infection and transmission, and emerging evidence that their protections against hospitalization and death were oversold, the corporations are facing potential legal challenge, with repercussions for their bottom lines.

One Ivy League epidemiologist is predicting insurers will go after vaccine makers for misleading them about “all-cause mortality” in clinical trials, while another told Just the News his lawyer will soon threaten to file a class-action suit against Twitter.

Andrew Bostom, a longtime member of the Brown University medical faculty until last year, said he would be the named plaintiff in such a suit. He was suspended by Twitter twice in a month for sharing research on vaccine side effects.

Genomics researcher Kevin McKernan, who has endured repeated lockouts for questioning the evidence behind COVID vaccine claims, told Just the News he’s deciding between two attorneys, including former FDA Chief Counsel James Lawrence, who’s representing Bostom and previously got journalist Alex Berenson reinstated through litigation.

“Engaging [Twitter] before I’m actually banned will likely lack standing” to sue, McKernan wrote in an email. “Also keeping a close eye on Andrew Bostom.” Twitter didn’t respond to queries about the legal threats.

Twitter also recently suspended MIT senior research scientist Stephanie Seneff, who studies “the role of nutrition and environmental toxicants on human disease.” She’s the corresponding author on a new peer-reviewed paper on “innate immune suppression” by mRNA COVID vaccines.

In a July 19 notification Seneff showed Just the News, Twitter said she was being locked out for pointing followers to an essay by doctor Paul Alexander, also suspended by Twitter. The former Trump administration Health and Human Services official urged parents not to give their children COVID vaccines, which “subvert their innate immune system and can kill them.”

“I was probably a bit foolish” to share the article, Seneff wrote in an email, but “I am terrified of the future prospects of young children who are being injected with the COVID-19 experimental vaccines,” which she believes will “accelerate the rate of increase in autism over time.”

While she wrote an unsuccessful rebuttal challenging Twitter’s decisions, and called herself “frustrated” with Twitter’s “widespread censorship” of information about COVID vaccines, Seneff said she’s “not considering any legal steps at this time.”

This week, the company locked out vaccine researcher Jessica Rose for sharing a Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System report on a 13-year-old girl who died less than a month after receiving a Pfizer vaccine dose.

McKernan said the three of them “have all published/attempted to publish” with COVID contrarian cardiologist Peter McCullough, who coauthored Seneff’s paper. “Usually faced academic gate keeping at the journal level,” McKernan said.

YouTube removed an interview with mRNA vaccine pioneer-turned-critic Robert Malone, as he predicted it would, less than three days after the Dutch podcast De Nieuwe Wereld posted the interview. An archive shows it had 42,000 views as of early Aug. 1.

Malone was joined by Dutch vaccine developer Theo Schnett, who described his new study, not yet peer-reviewed, that tested “the possibility of correlation of the booster vaccine campaigns (in the 60+ year cohort) in the Netherlands to excess all-cause mortality.” According to Malone, who posted the hour-plus interview on his own website, the study used the government’s “regional vaccination waves” as a “form of internal controls in the data analysis approach.”

YouTube owner Google, recently ordered by a federal judge to turn over internal documents in an antitrust lawsuit by Rumble, didn’t respond to queries about the video’s removal.

McKernan is on his final “strike” before suspension for telling another user vaccine trials didn’t have hospitalization or death as “endpoints,” which Twitter first deemed misinformation and then surreptitiously revised as “abusive behavior.” He’s since taken to highlighting abusive behavior against COVID contrarians left untouched by Twitter.

“Let’s see what @TwitterSupport does with a physician that mocks another minority physician regarding his childhood molestation,” McKernan wrote Tuesday, pointing followers to a tweet by University of Alabama Birmingham clinical assistant professor Joy Henningsen.

“Florida’s ‘Surgeon General,’” the Twitter-verified doctor wrote, using scare quotes, to share an interview with Joseph Ladapo, a skeptic of one-size-fits-all COVID vaccination programs, where he alleged he was molested as a child and recovered from the trauma through “Chinese healing techniques.”

Henningsen, who describes herself on LinkedIn as a “Passionate medical news contributor for both national and local news outlets,” made her Twitter account private soon after Just the News asked her to clarify the meaning of her quote-tweet, and didn’t answer an email query.

Twitter didn’t answer how Henningsen’s tweet compared to McKernan’s under its “abusive” prohibition.

“UAB recognizes individuals’ constitutionally protected rights to free speech … even when speech is counter to the institution’s vision, mission and values,” university spokesperson Bob Shepard told Just the News when asked if Henningsen’s tweet violated any academic or professional code. “Personnel matters are handled between the institution and employees.”

Senate witness cites Fauci for ‘repeated demonstrably false’ denials

Gain-of-function Research

Rutgers molecular biologist Richard Ebright has previously accused NIAID and NIH directors of lying to the public.

By Charlotte Hazard

In a Senate hearing on gain-of-function (GoF) research on viruses, which some scientists believe is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, longtime National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci came in for particular scorn.

Dr. Fauci has made “untruthful” statements on “repeated occasions to the public, to the press and to policymakers,” Rutgers University molecular biologist Richard Ebright told the Senate Homeland Security Emerging Threats Subcommittee at a hearing Wednesday chaired by ranking member Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), according to the Daily Caller.

“I do not understand why those statements are being made because they are demonstrably false,” Ebright continued, explaining that GoF research creates “new health threats … that did not exist previously and that might not have come to exist by natural means for tens, hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of years.”

At a May 2021 hearing of the Senate Health Committee, Fauci unequivocally denied a claim by Paul that the National Institutes of Health funded gain-of-function research at a Chinese lab widely suspected to be the source of SARS-CoV-2. NIH “has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Fauci declared. He further denied that University of North Carolina virologist Ralph Baric was doing GoF research, while at the same time allowing that if he was, “it is according to the guidelines and is being conducted in North Carolina, not in China.”

It’s at least the second time Ebright has accused Fauci of lying, though previously he included Fauci in a group of lying officials.

NIH Principal Deputy Director Lawrence Tabak told the House Oversight Committee last fall that NIH-funded research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology using a modified bat coronavirus made mice “sicker” than the original virus, an “unexpected result of the research.”

Ebright said at the time this showed Fauci and NIH Director Francis Collins made “untruthful assertions” about not funding GoF research. 

“The NIH received the relevant documents in 2018 and reviewed the documents in 2020 and again in 2021,” his tweet stated. “The NIH — specifically, Collins, Fauci, and Tabak — lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public. Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.”
