“In a late-night filing this week, prosecutors blasted what they called ‘wide ranging meritless accusations leveled against the government.’ And then, in 36 pages, they proceeded to set the record straight on the unprecedented search of the home of a former president.” The question is whether, in today’s America, the record can ever actually be set straight. After all, we can’t all seem to agree that Trump tried to overturn an election, fueled the Jan 6 insurrection, and did nothing to stop the violence — and we all saw that crime play out in front our eyes. In filings, Justice Department rebuts Trump’s claims on Mar-a-Lago search.

+ Some documents retrieved from Mar-a-Lago were so sensitive that FBI agents needed a special clearance to look at them. (A special clearance should be required before looking at that carpet.)
