You mean the raid in June that Trump stepped out of. The one they determined later, he had probably obstructed. The one in which he likely had concealed and removed the documents they found in this raid?was that this raid or the one in june when the doj said they got everything they were looking for.
They haven't yet said if they think he had all the documents in the place in which they found them this time. There could be more documents he squirreled away in another place, again.
Yes they are talking about the most recent raid. I'd say you know that, but never say rival knows something unless you like to bet on long odds.
They asked politely several times, and less politely several times.
They took the first raid for a subpoena, in which he was notified ahead of time, to either permit the inspection of premises and/or voluntarily give up the documents.
The next raid was on a search warrant in which he got no notice, because he had not voluntarily handed over said documents in several instances before, when asked and/or ordered to do so.
Each step was less concerned for the rights of Trump, and more concerned with the retrieval of the documents. Only because at every step, Trump never volunteered all the documents.
What does it matter whether they initially thought they had all the documents in the subpoena, and/or later found out they didn't. The only thing that mattered is they had proof there was probably more, at the time they got the search warrant issued, regardless of former statements or non-statements.
What also mattered was that when they executed the search warrant, they found said materials at his residence.
Should they not have been allowed the search warrant with present proof for it, because some official at the DOJ had formerly misspoken. If it was because he said something before that was later proved incorrect. Should they not ever petition a judge with information the judge found fully sufficient at the time they submitted it?
