THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: FBI’s Trump Search Stirs Talk, Except by Those Who Conducted It

August 11, 2022

The FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home Monday was unprecedented, prompting days of global news coverage and commentary on motivations, implications and ramifications.

Key players no one has heard from: the Justice Department or the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

That silence has prompted leading Republicans to demand an explanation from Attorney General Merrick Garland as well as to criticize the operation as politically motivated overreach.

Prominent Democrats have said that they want the Justice Department to pursue its investigation wherever it leads without interference; the White House has been largely mum.

Mr. Trump’s lawyers, while speaking publicly about some aspects of the search, have declined to provide key details such as which documents the agents took from the Palm Beach, Fla., property.

The result: The public is in the dark about basic facts and key questions that the operation raised in one of the most controversial and high-profile FBI actions in years.
