Attorney Harmeet Dhillon shared the latest political fallout from the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago Tuesday on “The Ingraham Angle,” saying former President Donald Trump is being treated differently than other past presidents .
Harmeet Dhillon: Well, it was a very interesting piece by Rivkin and Casey, and they basically said that regardless of what that search warrant said, the Presidential Records Act provides very broad protection for former presidents to take these papers, and it explains how it’s been up to 12 years since a president working in conjunction with the archives can prevent the public from seeing those papers. But the important thing is that the statute does not specify the time, place and manner of delivery of these documents to the archives.
FBI RAID ON TRUMP LATEST TEST OF DEMOCRATIC WAR ON THE RULE OF LAW
Here, the archives are effectively using the DOJ and the FBI as their goons to retrieve these documents. They are not entitled to these roles. In fact, other presidents, including Obama, have gone through the same process to keep these documents from the public, and they’re taking their time. So why is Trump being treated differently? I think we all know why, and I think the fact that there are evolving justifications and also nightly leaks about this process also underscores that this is purely political in nature.
