Donald Trump did it, and now Mike Lindell is going to cut out an exception to the law that would allow Trump’s aides to evade the FBI and ask a special master to investigate the whole thing. The FBI is apparently made up of horrible people Get Trump and his inner circle. The “team” believe they are the only ones in the country exempt from a search warrant signed by a judge based on a very serious and discreet FBI affidavit. While it worked well with Judge Cannon (now partly reversed), it definitely didn’t work when Mike Lindell sued the FBI in front of Trump-appointed judges in Minnesota. The judges tossed motion like bad burritos. Mike Lindell’s phone never returned. He’s like every other American.
from Law and Crime:
A Minnesota federal judge appointed by Donald Trump on Thursday dismissed a motion for a temporary injunction filed by a local attorney yesterday, self-proclaimed constitutional adviser Alan Dershowitz, on behalf of MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, said:
“Just yesterday.” The judge didn’t need a paper to punt the motion.
U.S. District Judge Eric C. Tostrud prominently quoted Wednesday’s remarks. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Decision that Major Adjustments to Special Master Order of Another Trump Appointed District Judge In the ongoing Mar-a-Lago conflict between the former president and the DOJ.
As in the Trump case, plaintiff Lindell is seeking the return of property, the judge said. DOJ has an active criminal investigation (Rindell has not been charged with a crime and is considered a “subject”):
Many MAGAs say the FBI is out of control and on a mission to destroy Trump, roaming the country recklessly and getting whatever they need to build a huge “hoax” against Trump Of course, few take into account that the FBI needs a warrant signed by a federal judge to get all this stuff. It is based on. The judge knows that these cases are so controversial that he will need double or triple the evidence he normally requires, just in case. In fact, even the FBI may be aware that he’s better off with three times the certainty than the average case.
After considering all of the above, it’s amazing that Alan Dershowitz helped a Minnesota attorney file the motion. Dershowitz specializes in teaching criminal law and criminal proceedings. Few people in the country know the system as well as he does.Dershowitz is Trump’s defense attorney, and he could be happy to argue ridiculous positions on TV. But he should be one of the sane people in the actual court filings. Strange. He knows the move was ridiculous.
Team Trump cannot call for a special master in all cases and has carved out some Trumpy exceptions. You’ll never find the perfect forum again.
