From The New York Times:
Previously unreported details of the investigation show that prosecutors working for Mr. Smith have subpoenaed surveillance footage from Bedminster, much like they did from Mar-a-Lago, and fought a pitched battle with Mr. Trump’s lawyers late last year over how best to search the New Jersey property.
At one point in the early fall of last year, investigators went so far as to discuss executing a search warrant at Bedminster, according to two people briefed on the matter. Investigators were concerned that more documents were stashed at the club and the only way to account for them was to search the property. But one of the people said the Justice Department lacked probable cause to obtain a warrant from a judge.
The discussions about the warrant took place around the time that Jay Bratt, the top counterintelligence official at the Justice Department, told Mr. Trump’s legal team that prosecutors believed Mr. Trump still had more classified materials in his possession.
Lacked probable cause to search Bedminster?! That’s almost comical in light of the audio tape CNN just released. Not to mention the video we have seen of TFG and his cronies schlepping boxes onto private planes going from Florida to New Jersey.
At least Special Counsel Smith is clearly aware that crimes were likely committed in New Jersey, and is on the case.
Godspeed, Mr. Smith!
